3) County Council consultation on Maws Lane junction *improvements* Kimberley

I mentioned in February’s edition how Nottinghamshire County Council want to make further *improvements* to the Maws Lane junction in Kimberley.

I made a very detailed submission against the so-called *improvements* demonstrating how they did nothing to improve the existing and long-term problems in the area.   I also sent in a resident’s complaint that I had received regarding the *improvements*.  The response I have received from the County Council stated the they will be overruling the objections and the scheme will be installed as advertised.

Their full response is shown here: TRO5249 Awsworth Lane, Kimberley – Report

If you have any further questions you can contact:

4)   Tram Extension – Line 4 phase iii to Kimberley, Eastwood & Amber Valley

 

http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2015/02/tram-extension-line-4-phase-iii-to-kimberley-eastwood-into-amber-valley/

A significant amount of extra work has been undertaken during the past three weeks, with a full summary shown in the above link.

Following a meeting held at Broxtowe Borough Council offices in Beeston on Wednesday 28 February, I have submitted this morning a very detailed document with business and community support for the extension out to Amber Valley.

There are other initiatives planned during the coming months and as soon as there is more information I will update you again.

 

 

5) Giltbrook traffic congestion

 

I continue to receive lots of complaints from residents concerned about ever-increasing traffic congestion in around Giltbrook – especially at rush hour times.  Nottinghamshire County Council have been contacted on many occasions and my particular thanks goes to my colleague County Cllr John Handley – cllr.john.handley@nottscc.gov.uk – who is being very responsive to the problems.

I have contacted John again today following further complaints and frustrations with the traffic flow going up into Eastwood from the retail park.  Some residents have asked for the traffic signals installed several years ago to be removed and replaced instead by a mini roundabout on Nottingham Road, Giltbrook.

If you have any specific complaints or questions about this you are welcome to contact John directly – on the email address shown above.

 

6) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

 

Following concerns from local residents I launched a major campaign earlier this year to try and improve road crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.

https://www.eastwoodadvertiser.co.uk/news/campaign-for-a-zebra-crossing-in-kimberley-1-8918604

These details were submitted to the County Council on 27 February 2018 – along with copies of the complaints and suggestions I have received from local residents, many of which were very interesting.

Yesterday – 19 March 2018 – I issued a reminder to the County Council to chase on what action they propose to take.  I am currently awaiting a response, so I hope to be able to update you further in April’s newsletter.

 

7) Disability Benefits a broken system?

 

 

The Citizens Advice Bureau in Broxtowe sent me a detailed report on Disability Benefits which shows experiences across Nottinghamshire.  It’s very detailed and informative and can found here: Notts Cluster Disability Benefits Report FINAL

 

8)   Freeman and Alderman nominations – Broxtowe

 

The title of Honorary Alderman of the Borough is awarded to past councillors who have given outstanding service in their role as councillor.

The title of Honoary Freeman is awarded to persons of distinction and persons who have rendered eminent services to Broxtowe Borough over an extended period of time.

The details are shown below (but they have to be submitted by a councillor), if you want to nominate someone, please let me know (by this coming Friday).

https://selfservice.broxtowe.gov.uk/renderform.aspx?k=7B776E2FFFD16E8A9CA1A7125AC3387F4F5A854E&t=130&utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=

 

9)    CCTV request – Babbington Lane, Kimberley (near the water tower)

I’ve received increasing complaints over the past few months regarding increasing the amount of litter in this vicinity.  One request I had was for CCTV to be installed to try and combat these occurrences.  I’d be very interested to know your views on this.

 

10)  Regeneration Sites update (throughout Broxtowe)

I am often asked about what is happening on key sites throughout the borough ie Moults Yard Stapleford, Beamlight Eastwood, Boots, Field Farm, Kimberley Brewery.  If you look at the following link (pages 16-22) you will find a full update: https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/media/4495/agenda-15-march-2018.pdf

 

11)   Suggested recommended viewing/campaign issues

Some of the most interesting items I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is said, but they do provoke some thought and discussion:

  1. Less than zero: six months working in low-wage Britain – https://www.newstatesman.com/2018/03/less-zero-six-months-working-low-wage-britain
  2. Early Intervention -the next steps: https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/284086/early-intervention-next-steps2.pdf

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – February 2018

1) County Council consultation on Maws Lane junction *improvements* Kimberley

I have received information showing how Nottinghamshire County Council want to make further *improvements* to the Maws Lane/Awsworth Lane junction.  A number of residents in and around Maws Lane have been in touch stating how disappointed they are with what the County Council are proposing (which will do nothing to alleviate the ongoing long standing problems in this area).

You have until 28 February 2018 to make your views known.  These should be sent to  tmconsultation@viaem.co.uk  (my response is shown below).

Please see the following details (dependent upon your internet browser you may need to click on the actual images).

Subject: The Nottinghamshire County Council (Awsworth Lane & Maws Lane, Kimberley) (prohibition of waiting) traffic regulation order 2018 (5249) – public advertisement
FAO Mrs Steph Walford
Dear Steph
I have been passed your letter of 29 January 2018 by Broxtowe Borough Council regarding the above.
I would like to take this opportunity to respond and send you an example of one of the comments I have received (below).
You may well remember that I wrote to you on 24 August 2016 – with a very detailed submission (following months of consultations) on suggestions from local Kimberley residents on how to improve traffic and pedestrian issues in two particular parts of Kimberley – one being Maws Lane:-
 
In my letter of 24 August 2016 (as above and contained within the link above) I stated as follows:  “I would be happy to meet up to discuss the work that was undertaken and that I looked forward to some to some imaginative and long term benefits for local people and therefore address long standing traffic problems in this part of Broxtowe”.
I regret to say that the offer to meet never materialised, to which I was very disappointed, but not surprised.  Furthermore whilst I (eventually) received responses from the County Council, they completely ignored the major issues faced by local residents in Kimberley.  I will not repeat these here as I have raised them previously on so many occasions.
The County Council insisted on pursuing (in their own words) the cheapest and quickest option with regards to Maws Lane “improvements” of £25,000.  I argued consistently that the monies would have been much better spent looking at the longer-term solutions to traffic issues in Kimberley.
Whilst I understand the County Council will say that their stance has been vindicated by the Ombudsman regarding Maws Lane £25,000 scheme (this largely related to the validity of the consultation) – the demerits of the scheme alas are now quite clearly emerging.
Spending further monies on double yellow lines is going to do nothing to ameliorate the situation for residents in and around Maws Lane who live with daily problems that the County Council continue to ignore.  In fact it will only exacerbate matters further.  For example please see the email from a local resident that was sent unsolicited to me.
Please do not think that this a case of “I told you so”.
What I would ask for a further review of the suggestions made by local residents contained in my original consultations to be actively considered.
I would (again) make the offer to meet with you and local residents in order to work out together a more constructive and positive way forward.
Many thanks for your time and assistance in this matter which is very much appreciated.

2)   Holy Trinity Church Kimberley – regeneration project

 

The Holy Trinity church in Kimberley continues to make a significant contribution towards the well being of local residents within the nearby community.   The church is an integral part of everyday life to many hundreds of local people.

Due to limitations the church faces because of the physical constraints imposed upon it to undertake additional work for the local community, an exciting new regeneration project is being planned which includes:

– replacing the existing church hall with a modern facility created within space inside the present church building which will then serve as both a community facility and church.

– the inside of the church will be modernised with new flooring and seating creating an area for community use whilst retaining the main church area and the altar sanctuary for services and worship.

– the existing church hall, which is now over 60 years old, is in very poor condition and approaching the point where it is not fit for purpose.  The hall however, is a crucial community facility and its loss would have considerable impact on local community users. With this in mind, the proposal is to replace this facility within the existing church building by creating a dual purpose area which can be used for both community activities and church services.  Significantly, the new facility will be modern and up to date and include all the essentials for a community area such as toilets, including an accessible toilet, a kitchen, an area for community activities eg: Playgroup, Brownies, Karate, Dog Training, Badminton, Yoga, Dancing and so on together with a place to meet and have tea and coffee.

– the proposal also envisages a new entrance area to replace the existing choir vestry and in the church grounds improvements will be made to the surrounding area and also to the car park which will include a revised access from Church Hill.

Anyone requiring more information on the regeneration project can contact Mr Ian H Wilson: ian.wilson22@ntlworld.com

 

 

3) Giltbrook traffic congestion

 

I have received a lot of correspondence recently from residents concerned about ever increasing traffic congestion in around Giltbrook – especially at rush hour times. Nottinghamshire County Council have been contacted on many occasions and the latest response I have had this week is shown below.

My particular thanks to my colleague County Cllr John Handley – cllr.john.handley@nottscc.gov.uk

– who has in particular done a lot of work on this, and we have both asked the County Council to see what longer term solutions to the traffic problems can be found.

(The official County Council response thus far is as follows):

There is a significant amount of traffic that travels towards Awsworth and Ilkeston from the Eastwood direction in the morning peak and does the reverse in the evening peak. In addition in the morning there is also a significant amount of traffic that comes off the A610 and turns right towards Awsworth and Ilkeston (and possibly further afield such as Spondon and Derby). This traffic causes queuing and congestion which affects the approaches to the A610 Roundabout coming from Eastwood and from Awsworth.

Drivers are channelled into the offside lane on the approach coming from the Ikea island if they are travelling towards Awsworth or heading onto the A610 towards Langley Mill. The inside lane is for traffic travelling towards the M1 and Nottingham. This lane allocation is due to the relative traffic flows. In the morning the traffic flow heading towards Awsworth is the highest, with Nottingham traffic next highest, then A610 towards Langley Mill. If the lanes were adjusted, there would be more queues and congestion as the 2 largest flows (Awsworth and Nottingham bound) would be in the same lane.

I have made adjustments to the traffic light settings at the A610 / Gin Close Way Junction to reduce the green time that the A610 Off slip receives. I hope this will alleviate some of the congestion, however during peak periods there will still be queues and delays in the area.

4) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

Following concerns from local residents I have launched a major campaign to try and improve road crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.

https://www.eastwoodadvertiser.co.uk/news/campaign-for-a-zebra-crossing-in-kimberley-1-8918604

So many people try and cross the road either to get to Kettlebrook Lodge, Holy Trinity Church and of course to then cross back and walk up to Hardy Street and experience many difficulties.  Thank you to all who have been in touch thus far, following letters I have delivered.

There are some very interesting ideas coming forward and I will go through all of the replies next month with submissions to be made in April to the County Council.

I’ll update you when there is more information and publish a summary of all the responses I have received.

 

5) Kettlebrook Lodge, Kimberley

A big thanks to Kimberley resident and volunteer with 2nd Kimberley Scouts Mr Ellis Tansley who organised a petition of 2250 names demonstrating the clear strength of support for this very popular and well used building, and opposition to any development on its site.

At Broxtowe Borough Council full meeting on Wednesday 31 January 2018 this was presented – and it certainly, well shall we say, caused a stir!

I am pleased therefore that the strength of opposition to Kettlebrook closing is so strong and that the original closure *suggestions* (as they are now diplomatically referred to) are being dropped.

 

6) Hardy Street car fire, Kimberley

Many of you in Kimberley will be aware of the events that happened on Hardy Street earlier this month.  I got lots of messages about this.  All of the information I received was sent to the police and I also passed on confidential information that was relayed to me.

If anyone has confidential item for the police at any time, details can be sent directly to Nottinghamshire Police – Paul Toon – paul.toon@nottinghamshire.pnn.police.uk

 

7)  Pot holes

I mentioned this in January’s newsletter and not surprising there is a been plenty of responses.  One of the worst areas I was notified about was the top of Swingate.  I visited residents up there last week and duly reported the problems to the County Council.  They in turn have said they will carry out some work this week.  A major issue is that a lot of work that is done is only of temporary nature and there are deteriorations again soon after, which I have challenged the County Council about.

If you have further areas you would like to be looked at please let me know.

 

8)   Community events in and around Broxtowe

https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/news-events/whats-on-where/ – this link contains some interesting local information.

 

9)   Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood & into Amber Valley

http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2015/02/tram-extension-line-4-phase-iii-to-kimberley-eastwood-into-amber-valley/

I hope to have some more detailed news on developments next month, following work being currently undertaken with a number of strategic partners.

 

10)   Suggested recommended viewing/campaign issues

Some of the most interesting items I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is said, but they do provoke some thought and discussion:

 

a) The dénouement of the dominant political issue of the moment will be messy, misspent time, crumbling walls & leadership reduced to the sidelines

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/feb/23/brexit-walls-theresa-may-customs-union-trade-bill-bystander?CMP=share_btn_tw

 

b) Why Premier Inns should clean up their act
c) The best leaders are political alchemists: capable of repeatedly turning crises into opportunities

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – January 2018

 

1) Important information if you are regular traveller by train

Major works in Derby start on 22 July 2018 with a £200m investment at the local railway station there.

 

The project: “Derby Resignalling” is the biggest rail investment in Derby for some years, and will replace and upgrade the current track and infrastructure to provide better journeys for the thousands of passengers who travel to, from and through Derby every day. It is part of the biggest upgrade of the Midland Main Line since it opened in 1870 to support better journeys between Sheffield, Derby and Nottingham.

 

Changes to journeys vary depending on when and where passengers are travelling.  However, East Midlands Trains and CrossCountry services to and from Crewe, Matlock, Birmingham, Nottingham and Sheffield will be affected at different times while the work is carried out.

2) Giltbrook traffic congestion

I am grateful to all of you living in Kimberley & Giltbrook and the surrounding areas who continue to keep in touch during regarding increasing traffic congestion in and around the approach to and from the Giltbrook (IKEA) Retail Park – and especially relating to the IKEA roundabout.

 

I have been stuck in the queues myself recently and I have also been made aware of some of the road rage that has ensued.

 

I know that the County Councillor covering Giltbrook – Cllr John Handley has also taken a keen interest in the problems.  He held a site meeting last week with a number of people including Dave Walker (District Manager Ashfield & Broxtowe) Via East Mids Ltd.

 

Both Cllr Handley and myself have asked for some long-term improvements to be put in place in order that the current problems can be properly tackled.

 

Please continue to keep me updated with any specific problems you have.

 

You can also contact – County Cllr John Handley – cllr.john.handley@nottscc.gov.uk

3) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

Following concerns from local residents I have launched a major campaign to try and improve road crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.

https://www.eastwoodadvertiser.co.uk/news/campaign-for-a-zebra-crossing-in-kimberley-1-8918604

So many people try and cross the road either to get to Kettlebrook Lodge, Holy Trinity Church and of course to then cross back and walk up to Hardy Street and experience many difficulties.  Thank you to all who have been in touch thus far, following letters I have delivered.

If you would like to be involved in this in any way please let me know, and if you have not had the chance yet, please do send me your opinion on what you would like to see by way of improvements for pedestrians.

There are already some very interesting ideas coming forward and I will go through all of the replies, with submissions to be made in April to the County Council.

I’ll update you when there is more information and publish a summary of all the responses I have received.

 

 

4) Kettlebrook Lodge

At Broxtowe Borough Council full meeting tonight I am delighted that Mr Ellis Tansley, Kimberley resident and volunteer with 2nd Kimberley Scouts is presenting a petition with 2,250 names demonstrating the clear strength of support for this very popular and well used building, and opposition to any development on its site.

 

I have received a number of separate representations from local residents and community leaders during the last few months and I have made known to Broxtowe my unequivocal support for Kettlebrook.

 

I get asked to sign lots of petitions and don’t sign every one I see but I am convinced that any plans to knock down Kettlebrook are extremely short sighted.

 

I was made aware from a number of people in Kimberley who got in touch last year concerned about the future of Kettlebrook that that the few people who supported its closure were doing it as a way to try and sabotage the route for the tram extension: http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2015/02/tram-extension-line-4-phase-iii-to-kimberley-eastwood-into-amber-valley/ –  by building houses on the site instead.

 

I am pleased therefore that the strength of opposition to Kettlebrook closing is so strong.

5) Homelessness is not just something you read about in the press

 

Earlier this month a local resident got in touch with concerns about the plight of a homeless person sleeping rough near the A610 underpass in Kimberley (near Hayley Close).

 

In terms of statutory services I was able to contact

Gary Smithurst

Homeless Manager Broxtowe Borough Council

Foster Avenue, Beeston

Nottingham

NG9 1AB Tel 0115 9173424

Gary.Smithurst@broxtowe.gov.uk

 

They in turn liaise with the street outreach team at Framework.

 

If you are aware of any other instances locally please get in touch.

 

 

 

 

 

6)   Dog fouling – Swingate, Kimberley

 

I have had some complaints about increasing occurrences of dog fouling in and around Swingate (especially near the water tower).

I have raised this both the Street Cleaning Manager and Broxtowe and the Neighbourhood

Wardens.  If you are affected by this please drop me a line.

 

 

 

7)  Pot holes

 

One of the most frequent complaints I receive concern the amount of pot holes there are, and the very lengthy wait to get anything done.  The latest occurrence is outside Kimberley Primary school on Swingate.

 

If there particular areas locally you would like considering for treatment please let me know and I will compile a comprehensive list to send to the County Council for action.

 

 

 

 

8)   Suggested recommended viewing/watching

 

Some of the most interesting items I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is said, but they do provoke some thought and discussion:

a) A feisty interview with Jordan Peterson as he and Channel 4 presenter Cathy Newman debate such issues as the gender pay gap, equality, campus protests.  It certainly caused a stir on social media:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMcjxSThD54

 

 

b) Carillion – the demise of a company that had grown too big to fail

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – December 2017

Hi all

A warm welcome to December’s update and especially to those who have joined during the last few weeks.

For all of us during 2017 and across this nation there have been monumentally tragic times.  As one of the articles states in my recommended reading below “the spectre of terrorism continues to haunt Europe and the UK.  On five occasions in 2017, Britain endured attacks, most grievously of all on 22 May as 22 people were killed and many more injured by an Islamist suicide bomber as they left an Ariana Grande concert in the Manchester Arena”.

Then shortly after the whole country witnessed a most horrifying fire at Grenfall tower, taking the lives of 71 people.

It is indeed difficult to comprehend just everything that took place within a matter of a few weeks.

Locally in and around Broxtowe, as ever, this year has been been busy with highs and lows, some frustrations, but with hard work continuing behind the scenes in order to try and make improvements on a number of key issues.  Some of these are covered below in this update.

My newsletters for the whole year (and going back month by month to 2007) are shown here: http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/work-in-broxtowe/

I retain a strong sense of optimism, ambition and hope for 2018, and am looking forward to the challenges ahead.

Thank you all for your feedback during this year.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas & peaceful New Year.

 

Best regards

Richard

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – December 2017

1) Giltbrook traffic congestion

I am grateful to all of you living in Kimberley & Giltbrook who have been in touch during the past month about increasing traffic congestion in and around the approach to and from the Giltbrook (IKEA) Retail Park – and especially relating to the IKEA roundabout.
Nottinghamshire County Council – have been contacted about this and engineers visited the junction and found some issues with the existing signals equipment.  The junction was installed 10 years ago and some of the equipment needs to be renewed.
They have duly carried out a temporary fix and will be returning over the next few weeks to do a comprehensive check and replacement of any defective cabling they find.
More information available from:
Chris Gough
Traffic Systems Network Manager (South)
Tel: 0115 9774366 –

Please do contact me again with any specific problems.

 

2) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

Following concerns from local residents I am going to launch a major campaign in January to and improve road crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.  So many people try and cross the road either to get to Kettlebrook Lodge, Holy Trinity Church and of course to then cross back and walk up to Hardy Street and experience many difficulties.  Thank you to all who have been in touch.

If you would like to be involved in this in any way please let me know.

I’ll touch on this more in January – and will make lots of literature available.

3) Moonlight Cinema returns to Giltbrook Retail Park (GRP)

We are not there yet with a permanent cinema at GRP – however I am pleased that following a successful trial a number of months ago
further showings are planned for January 2018.  Showings include Notting Hill, Tangled, Pretty Woman, Moulin Rouge, Moana & The Notebook.  A full list of showings & how to book is shown at the following link:
Previous press coverage about this is shown here:

4)   Broxtowe Women’s Project – job vacancy

A job vacancy currently exists for a Domestic Abuse Outreach worker.  This is a part time post 30 hour per week £24,500 pro rata.

5)  Tram extension to Kimberley & Eastwood & into Amber Valley

Many of you will know that I am a passionate supporter of regeneration, reducing traffic congestion, job creation, public transport and providing a major boost to our local communities.

I am working alongside KENTAG (Kimberley, Eastwood & Nuthall Tram Action Group) to support the tram extension from Phoenix Park.

I am indebted to Cllr Chris Emmas-Williams – Labour Group Leader Amber Valley and MP for Ashfield Gloria De Piero for their work recently on this campaign.

In early 2018 we are taking the campaign up a level and have a meeting planned with key stakeholders covering the whole of the Midlands region.

The tram campaign will be a major focus of activity throughout 2018.

7)   Christians Against Poverty – Ilkeston Debt Centre

I have been asked by Ian Robertson, Centre Manager for Christians Against Poverty in Ilkeston to relay the following information:

Christians against Poverty (CAP) have recently opened a new debt centre in Ilkeston which offers free debt help to those struggling with debt. Their service is not only available to those living in Ilkeston and Heanor but also to anyone in the NG16 sub-postcodes 1-4 (an area stretching from Nuthall to Langley Mill).

A CAP debt centre is not a place but a process.  People telephone CAP on 0800 3280006 requesting help.  The local centre manager with a support worker visits the enquirer in the privacy of their home and collects all the financial information.  On receipt of all details CAP analyse the problems and recommend a way forward.That may be a debt repayment plan and/or an insolvency option.  Budgeting advice is always given and CAP seek to support their clients through the whole process of them becoming debt free.

CAP helps over 20,000 clients a year and handles over £45 million of client debt.It works with hundreds of finance and utility companies and saw over 2500 clients become debt free last year.  Ian Robertson manager of the new centre at Ilkeston says; “Typically debts can build up when a relationship breaks down,someone loses their job,or through bereavement–so often when people are least able to cope with a financial headache.  We hope over the next few years to help countless local people and families,regardless of their age,gender,faith or background to put their debt nightmares behind them and start a new life.”

Some of the most interesting articles I have come across recently.  It does not mean necessarily I endorse everything that is written, but they do provoke thought:

 

1) A new poem by Ben Okri, on Brexit and our times
2) Christmas – a time for family and generosity – a place for justice and freedom:
3) 2017 – a year of darkness and light

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – November 2017

Hi all

 

A warm welcome to November’s update and especially to those who have joined during the last few weeks.

As it is officially December tomorrow can I take this opportunity to wish all readers a very Happy Christmas.

As ever there is a plenty to update you about, so straight down to business.  I trust that you find the information below informative.

Feedback as always is welcome.  Likewise if you need help with any personal casework please get in touch.

Best regards

Richard

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – November 2017

1) The Hidden Bakery, 232 Nottingham Road, Eastwood NG16 3GR

The official opening of the Hidden Bakery on Hilltop Eastwood is to take place next Friday 8 December at 12 noon with the Mayor of Broxtowe – Councillor Halimah Khaled MBE.  I do hope as many of you as possible will be able to come along.

Offering fresh handmade bread, artisan teas, cakes, pastries, breakfast, brunch, lunch and Sunday lunches and much more I am absolutely delighted for the owners Heidi and Andrew who experienced a torrid time in Kimberley.  In Eastwood this represents a new start for them and their perseverance has certainly paid off.  The loss for Kimberley is most definitely a gain for Eastwood.

The quality of the goods they produce and service they offer is second to none.

The Hidden Bakery is actually open from tomorrow – 1 December – with next Friday being the ‘official opening’ “with the Mayor”.

More information on The Hidden Bakery available at:

https://www.facebook.com/thehiddenbakeryuk/

or by emailing: heidimather1@gmail.com

 

2) Campaign for greater road safety for pedestrians Nine Corners, Kimberley

Following concerns from local residents I am going to launch a major campaign in January to and improve road crossing for pedestrians near Nine Corners in Kimberley.  So many people try and cross the road either to get to Kettlebrook Lodge, Holy Trinity Church and of course to then cross back and walk up to Hardy Street and experience many difficulties.  Thank you to all who have been in touch.

If you would like to be involved in this in any way please let me know.

I’ll touch on this more in January – and will make lots of literature available.

3) Refuse collection in Broxtowe

If you reside within the borough of Broxtowe you should have already been sent information about the changes in refuse collection.    New bin calendars have already been sent to every household ahead of the changes, which start on Monday 4 December.

Whilst not all residents will have a new collection day, some could see their collection day change by up to 4 days or see their black or green lidded bin collection week swap.  Anyone affected will receive additional information in the post about how the Council will help them manage their waste during the transition weeks.
Residents are also reminded of the new bin collection start time of 630am, which also starts next Monday.

If anyone has any questions please email: recycling@broxtowe.gov.uk

If there are any problems at all, please let me know.

 

4) £200 the price of a cover up?

 

Many of you will now be familiar with the incredible problems that Stephanie Hather has experienced trying to legitimately trade in Kimberley with her Jacket Potato business.  I have covered this matter comprehensively before – especially in my September edition, and with slighly less detail in October’s newsletter (both referenced below). 

 

In particular I wrote last month that at that time the complaint made by Steph was at the Stage 2 of Broxtowe’s complaint process with a formal investigation taking place.

Both Steph and myself specifically asked to be interviewed as part of this process so we could give verbal evidence and explanations to supplement the written representations already made.

So now the council’s response has come back.  It offers Steph £200 in total for the errors that “the council have acknowledged” (which has taken one year to conclude).

The report that the council has written is very weak:

a) it supplies no answers as to why Steph and myself were not invited to be interviewed.

b) it contains wholly inaccurate information where for example it denies a meeting took place between the Deputy Chief Executive, another member of staff and myself on Wednesday 2 August 2017.  It did take place, I have documents to prove this.

c) the report completely ignores the true reasons why the trial that was agreed with Steph last year was cancelled right at the last minute.

Last Friday 24 November I made a robust further submission to the Chief Executive in addition to comments that Steph has made, asking for further and specific explanations as to inaccuracies and omissions in the council’s report.  To date no response has been received.

In my submission I was careful to state from the outset that council officers do a tremendous job, week in, week out for the residents of the borough and that my criticisms are not of them.  The fault here clearly lies with those councillors who have put extraordinary pressure on members of staff to implement their own parochial wishes.

The real reason the trial was cancelled and Steph has endured so many problems is that Kimberley Conservative Borough Councillors, together with some members of Kimberley Town Council don’t want her to trade.

So the real message is this – Broxtowe is open for business (but only if you are friends with the Tories).

I take my council work extremely seriously and I am determined to ensure that justice prevails in this case, together with the utmost transparency in every instance.

I would be pleased to receive any further comments you have on this.

 

5)  Tram extension to Kimberley & Eastwood & into Amber Valley

I attended an excellent summit on Monday this week at Leicester City Hall, organised by East Midlands Councils – click on the following link: adScan

This meeting was well attended from across the East Midlands Region including MPs council leaders and senior local government officers.

A key objective of the summit was to look at the East Midlands region’s transport projects and see how local business growth can be maximised through their delivery.

The East Midlands is registered as one of the worst geographical regions to live as measured by social mobility and employment opportunities for people in former coalfield/industrial areas.  Poor public transport links is seen as one of route causes.  I am a passionate supporter of public transport and supporting regeneration – with new jobs and opportunities – particularly in and around Broxtowe, Ashfield and Amber Valley.

I met at the summit both Sir John Peace, (Chair of Midlands Engine) and Maria Machancoses (Programme Director at Midlands Connect Project Team) and discussed the opportunities for the Amber Valley, Eastwood, Kimberley Tram extension as part of the Hs2 Growth Strategy.

A follow up meeting is now being planned for January next year with colleagues at Midlands Connect as to how to take the tram extension forward.

I’ll update on progress in due course.

Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood & into Amber Valley

 

6)   Labour selects its parliamentary candidate in Broxtowe

Earlier this month the Labour party selected its parliamentary candidate to fight the next General Election (which is set for 2022) – however with politics both at home and abroad being somewhat unpredictable, an election could happen of course at any time before then.
Labour’s candidate is Greg Marshall (who successfully narrowed the Conservative majority from over 4000 to under 1000 in June this year).  If you would like to help Greg campaign please contact Nina Douglas – nina.douglas@gmail.com
7)   Christians Against Poverty – Ilkeston Debt Centre

I have been asked by Ian Robertson, Centre Manager for Christians Against Poverty in Ilkeston to relay the following information:

Christians against Poverty (CAP) have recently opened a new debt centre in Ilkeston which offers free debt help to those struggling with debt. Their service is not only available to those living in Ilkeston and Heanor but also to anyone in the NG16 sub-postcodes 1-4 (an area stretching from Nuthall to Langley Mill).

A CAP debt centre is not a place but a process.  People telephone CAP on 0800 3280006 requesting help.  The local centre manager with a support worker visits the enquirer in the privacy of their home and collects all the financial information.  On receipt of all details CAP analyse the problems and recommend a way forward.That may be a debt repayment plan and/or an insolvency option.  Budgeting advice is always given and CAP seek to support their clients through the whole process of them becoming debt free.

CAP helps over 20,000 clients a year and handles over £45 million of client debt.It works with hundreds of finance and utility companies and saw over 2500 clients become debt free last year.  Ian Robertson manager of the new centre at Ilkeston says; “Typically debts can build up when a relationship breaks down,someone loses their job,or through bereavement–so often when people are least able to cope with a financial headache.  We hope over the next few years to help countless local people and families,regardless of their age,gender,faith or background to put their debt nightmares behind them and start a new life.”

Hi my name is Katerina Sykes the proprietor of Pet Walk & Stay home comfortI am devoted to providing the best possible pet service for you and your pet/s.

We often find ourselves in an increasing demanding lifestyle which distracts to carrying out the undivided attention we give our pets.

My home is a special place that’s cool for pets to stay, reducing stress and anxiety from alternative lodgings, giving you the freedom to enjoy your time away while I provide the loving care for your pets.

Choose from a range of care options;

In addition, I can use my experience of caring for my own pets as I understand how they form an integral part of the family. The feedback from pet owners have been how relaxed their pets are and grateful for the regular walks and company.

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – October 2017

Hi all

A warm welcome to October’s update and especially to those who have joined during the last few weeks.

It’s an extraordinarily busy time currently and there is a lot to update you about, so straight down to business.  I trust that you find the information below informative.

Feedback as always is welcome.  Likewise if you need help with any personal casework please get in touch.

Best regards

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – October 2017

1) Policing in Kimberley & Nuthall – what do you think?

Last week I was alerted to two meetings that were taking place regarding “sudden closure” of Community Police Beat Team rooms affecting both Nuthall & Kimberley   One meeting was last Thursday evening 19 October in Nuthall (which I attended), and the other was last Friday 20 October evening in Kimberley (which I couldn’t attend due to clashing with a long-standing prior engagement with Sir Keir Starmer the Shadow Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union).

At the meeting in Nuthall last Thursday much concern was expressed by local councillors about the manner in which they had been informed of the closures.  A letter was also read out from Anna Soubry (Broxtowe MP) who had contacted the policing minister about the closures.

To try and get a better understanding and clarification on the situation from the perspective of the police, I contacted the Police & Crime Commissioner for Nottinghamshire Paddy Tipping.  I did raise concerns too about the way that communications had been handled.  He confirmed that the police “drop in” rooms in both Nuthall and Kimberley had not been used since the beginning of 2017, and that they were never public facing.  Whilst they will now be closed permanently the same officers and staff will still police the area, with mobile technology enabling officers to be present within the local community for longer periods (which to me appears reasonable).

Then very strangely and completely out of the blue on Tuesday this week 24 October 2017 I received through the post at home an anonymous letter which is shown here: EPSON013

I have subsequently written to the Chair of Kimberley Town Council asking for comments on the points raised in the letter.  I received a telephone a telephone call from Cllr Trevor Rood today at lunch time refuting the inference made in the letter that Kimberley Town Council had any prior knowledge or notice of the closure.

Their written response is as follows – as copied directly from their email to me:

From: Trevor Rood [trevor.rood4@gmail.com]
Sent: 26 October 2017 13:19
To: Robinson, Richard
Subject: Police office

Kimberley Town Council where given not notification that the police where moving out of their office in Kimberley after clearing their office at Nuthall they came to Kimberley and said we have come to clear the Police office and will not be coming back in, Kimberley Town Council are appealing for them to reverse their decision if we are successful we can reinstate the the entrance door which has been removed and stored at the Parish Hall

Trevor Rood
Kimberley Town Council

So, I am very interested to know your thoughts on all of this.  In particular I’d like to know your views on local policing, including your experiences on response times, police visibility and any improvements you would like to see.  What do you think also about the actual closures of the rooms in Kimberley & Nuthall – do you think this will make any significant difference?

I’ll feedback in due course to the police so that they are aware of the range of local public feelings.

2) Refuse collection in Broxtowe

Changes to bin collections throughout the Broxtowe Borough are due to come into effect shortly.

New bin calendars will be sent to every household in the Borough in November ahead of the changes, which commence on 4 December.

You should continue to use your existing calendars until 1 December.

 

Whilst not all residents will have a new collection day, some could see their collection day change by up to 4 days or see their black or green lidded bin collection week swap.  Anyone affected will receive additional information in the post about how the Council will help them manage their waste during the transition weeks.

Residents are also reminded of the new bin collection start time of 630am, which also starts on 4 December.

I am attending a meeting about this next Wednesday 1 November and if there’s any more useful public information available I’ll publish this in next month’s newsletter.

More information available at:

https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/recycling 

 

3) Stephanie Hather – application to trade in Kimberley – mobile Jacket Potato van

Thank you to everyone who responded following last month’s newsletter.  I’ve passed onto Steph the many supportive comments that were received, all of which are very much appreciated.

I met with the Chief Executive of Broxtowe Borough Council on Tuesday this week to discuss a number of issues including this matter.

So where does this case stand now?

a) the complaint made by Stephanie is now at Stage 2 of the Broxtowe Borough Council complaints process (a formal investigation is now taking place) with a range of additional specific questions and points by Stephanie submitted.  Both Stephanie and myself have specifically requested that we are able to present in person and elucidate verbally on a series of events that took place as part of the formal investigation.

b) a Subject Data Access submission by Stephanie under Sections 7-9a of the Data Protection Act 1998 requiring all information to be released between specific dates during 2016-17 on emails, file notes, minutes and meeting notes between councillors and officers concerning her business is currently being collated.

c) a separate complaint against Kimberley Town Council is currently with the Interim Monitoring Officer at Broxtowe who will determine whether there has been a breach in the Code of Conduct.

I’ll update further as progress ensues in November’s newsletter.

If you want to offer Steph your support you can contact her at:  stephanie_louise_h@hotmail.com

 

4) The Hidden Bakery
 
Over the past few months I’ve got to know the owners Andrew & Heidi quite well.  They live on Eastwood Road in Kimberley next door to old Miners Welfare.  They are two of the of most hard working, very straightforward, straight talking and genuine people I’ve come across.

Andrew & Heidi’s business – Hidden Bakery have a Mission Statement – “To make our community a happier place with fresh bread, tarts, cakes and great baking”.  The range and quality of products they make are absolutely fantastic and hugely popular – wedding cakes, bread and other goodies.  Many of you will be familiar with their business.

As a way of brief background (I’ve covered this matter before in previous newsletters) –

 

  • they used to have premises on James Street in Kimberley, but for various reasons that did not work out.
  • they then had numerous problems with the Broxtowe Borough Council Planning Department and other people when seeking correct permission to be trade from their premises at home, and this being adapted.
  • a very unfortunate serious of events transpired – which ended up with Andrew being in hospital due to stress, and they were both thinking of leaving this area – (home and business) due to anxiety they were placed under.

I raised this matter at Broxtowe Borough Council full meeting last Wednesday 18 October 2017 and I would again like to place on record my thanks to Ruth Hyde Chief Executive (we met with Heidi and Andrew and went through a whole range of issues earlier this year).  The support shown from the Chief Executive and professionalism shown – in trying to win back some balance and fairness was very much appreciated.

On this occasion there is good news to report in that Hidden Bakery are staying within the borough of Broxtowe – with new premises secured on Hill Top in Eastwood where they will be able to offer much enhanced facilities, opening the end of November this year.

Tributes should be paid to Heidi and Andrew and this is a story of of perseverance and diligence, over many obstacles and bureaucracy put in their way.  I am personally delighted for Heidi and Andrew.

I’m naturally sorry that their business is not still in Kimberley, as we need more businesses like their’s here, however it’s still within the borough – which of course is good news.  The loss for Kimberley is definitely Eastwood’s gain.

You can find out more details about Hidden Bakery at: on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/thehiddenbakeryuk/ 

 

5)   Should Kettlebrook Lodge, Kimberley home to 2nd Kimberley Scouts (and many other activities) be demolished?

I’ve been made aware of a document that shows that Kettlebrook Lodge could be demolished should housing transpire in this vicinity.  Please see:

https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/media/3805/opun-design-review-kimberley-rev-e.pdf

I’ve received a number of concerns about this from local residents including Ellis Tansley the Scout Group Scout Leader, and Darren Seaton, Chairman of Kettlebrook Lodge.

 

Kettlebrook Lodge was built back in 1986 to be the new home of Kimberley’s Scout Group and is host to nearly 200 young people every week, in addition to a social hub of diverse users like a play group, Woman’s Institute, Girl Guiding, a drama group, a keep fit group and all the people who hold parties there.   It’s the only place in Kimberley that can cater for large groups (180 max).

I oppose the demolition of Kettlebrook Lodge emphatically, without qualification and will be making my views known to Broxtowe Borough Council.

You can do this also by writing by Friday 3 November 2017 to:
steffan.saunders@broxtowe.gov.uk

&

7)  Tram extension to Kimberley & Eastwood

I raised this matter again at Broxtowe Borough Council full meeting last Wednesday 18 October 2017, in particular the importance of protecting the route out to Kimberley against encroachment from housing development.  I stated specifically that provision of new housing and transport investment is something that goes hand in hand and is not one at the expense of the other.  Especially with the advent of Hs2 in Toton in the most southern part of Broxtowe – it is vital that increased investment in public transport in the north of the borough – Nuthall, Kimberley, and Eastwood ensues.

I have made separate submissions to Broxtowe as part of local plan consultation as has Labour MP for Ashfield Gloria De Piero – and her submission is shown at the following link:

Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood & into Amber Valley

8)   Review of parliamentary boundaries

https://boundarycommissionforengland.independent.gov.uk/2018-review/rp-england/ 

 

By clicking on the above link you will find revised proposals for parliamentary constituencies have been published by the Boundary Commission for England.  The enclosed document lists the wards which are intended to make-up the proposed Broxtowe and Hucknall Constituency and also shows where the remainder of the Borough wards have been placed.  Further information on the review, including a map showing the proposed boundaries, can be found at:
The proposals are open for consultation until 11 December 2017.

 

 

9)   Could you volunteer for Nottinghamshire Neighbourhood Watch?

I’ve been asked by my colleague Sue Sambells – current Chair of Nottinghamshire Neighbourhood Watch to mention their work.

I am aware that they do a really important job, but they do need more people to volunteer and there a lots of changes and challenges ahead.

You can find out more about Notts Watch at:

10)   Overgrown hedges, Coronation Road Cossall, opposite the industrial estate

I have been contacted about Coronation Road, Cossall, opposite the Cossall industrial estate and a path from the roundabout (New Rail Station) down only one side of the road.  Because of the overgrown hedges it is impossible to push a pram or use a wheelchair on the footpath.  People need to use the busy road to navigate the obstacle.
I duly got in touch with the County Council and they have advised that the landowner is arranging to have the hedge in question cut back.

11)   Christians Against Poverty – Ilkeston Debt Centre

 

I have been asked by Ian Robertson, Centre Manager for Christians Against Poverty in Ilkeston to relay the following information:

Christians against Poverty (CAP) have recently opened a new debt centre in Ilkeston which offers free debt help to those struggling with debt. Their service is not only available to those living in Ilkeston and Heanor but also to anyone in the NG16 sub-postcodes 1-4 (an area stretching from Nuthall to Langley Mill).

A CAP debt centre is not a place but a process.  People telephone CAP on 0800 3280006 requesting help.  The local centre manager with a support worker visits the enquirer in the privacy of their home and collects all the financial information.  On receipt of all details CAP analyse the problems and recommend a way forward.That may be a debt repayment plan and/or an insolvency option.  Budgeting advice is always given and CAP seek to support their clients through the whole process of them becoming debt free.

CAP helps over 20,000 clients a year and handles over £45 million of client debt.It works with hundreds of finance and utility companies and saw over 2500 clients become debt free last year.  Ian Robertson manager of the new centre at Ilkeston says; “Typically debts can build up when a relationship breaks down,someone loses their job,or through bereavement–so often when people are least able to cope with a financial headache.  We hope over the next few years to help countless local people and families,regardless of their age,gender,faith or background to put their debt nightmares behind them and start a new life.”

This is the same day as the Kimberley Christmas light switch on.

 

14)  Nine Corners Kimberley – should we have a zebra crossing?

 

A number of years ago I approached the County Council with regards to the possibility of a zebra crossing by Nine Corners, Kimberley.  It’s very difficult to cross as Rev Barbara Holbrook (and Baggins) and I experienced last week.  I know that a number of people previously said they would like a crossing in this area – due to the amount of people trying to get to the church, Kettlebrook Lodge etc.

Unfortunately at the time the County Council did not look favourably on the request.

Is have a crossing something that you are still concerned about and would like to see happen? Please let me know and I’m happy to try and coordinate a further approach.

 

15) Maws Lane/Eastwood Road, Kimberley junction

……And finally for this month a couple of points regarding Maws Lane.

Far from the £25,000 scheme (which I wholly opposed) preventing accidents, there was a collision there this week with a number of the new bollards being ripped out of place.

I just wish that the County Council would have listened to the constructive comments that Kimberley residents raised as part of the consultation exercise we undertook two years ago.

Additionally I am aware that the Passenger Transport team at Nottinghamshire County Council arranged for monitoring of the impact of the bus stop on Eastwood Road (next to crossing) was having on Maws Lane.

Happy to take more feedback on this with the hope that one day the County Council will listen rather than react.

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – September 2017

Hi all

A warm welcome to September’s update and especially to those who have joined during the last few weeks.

The content shown below is distinctly different to my normal way of writing and updating you all on a variety of local issues. I concentrate this month mainly on one issue the formal complaint now made by Kimberley resident Stephanie Hather against both Broxtowe Borough Council and Kimberley Town Council.  This concerns the obstructions that have been put in place of her trying to trade with her Jacket Potato Van in Kimberley, appalling behaviour she has been subjected to & the mismanagement of Steph’s business application.

The implications of various actions taken by some Members of both Kimberley Town Council & Broxtowe Borough Council – unduly and unfairly influencing staff at Broxtowe Borough Council are far reaching.  At the heart of all of this is integrity and transparency. It simply is not good enough for poor decisions to be swept under the carpet and for the buck to be passed to someone else to take the blame.

I should point out too, as many people in Kimberley in particular will be aware, Steph’s Jacket Potato stall is not the only local business to have suffered recently from both inappropriate and disproportionate attention.

What affects Kimberley affects the whole of Broxtowe.

During past 26 years as a Labour councillor I have witnessed many political twists and turns.  What is described below goes against everything I stand for by way of justice, accountability, transparency and integrity.

Kimberley (and indeed the whole of Broxtowe) deserves better than this.   As Council tax payers you certainly deserve better than this.

Duprey’s first law in politics is attributed to the former boss of the New Hampshire Republicans Steve Duprey.  He states “In politics before considering malevolence, always assume incompetence” http://www.newstatesman.com/2017/07/tim-shipmans-diary

I’ll leave it to you all to decide how exactly Duprey’s first law applies in this case..

Best regards

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – September 2017

What exactly is Steph so cross about?  

 

  • Bullying and intimidation from Kimberley Town councillor(s), including foul language being used against her.
  • Double standards being applied in Broxtowe. She is allowed to trade in Stapleford and is welcomed there. In Kimberley there have been numerous covert plans to prevent her trading.
  • Back in November 2016 she arranged in conjunction with Broxtowe Borough Council officers to trial her business once a week in Kimberley – bringing diversity to the town, offering an extra service and providing extra revenue to Broxtowe by way of rental she would pay.
  • Following intervention from Conservative councillors placing undue influence on Broxtowe officers this arrangement was then cancelled at the last minute in November last year.
  • Eventually in June 2017 following a range of representations being made for over six months a twelve week trial in Kimberley was agreed from 3 July 2017.
  • Having received confirmation in writing of this, and having started trading, a weekend’s notice to suspend activity (breach of contract) was then received by Steph later in July resulting from further interference by some local councillors.
  • Despite permission being given by Broxtowe to trade – padlocks were put on bollards by Kimberley Town Council – trying to hinder her.
  • She was told that her van was resting on the mosaic tiles on Toll Bar Square in Kimberley (not true), and that there was a need for a dropped kerb (one already exists).
  • Without communicating with Steph – local businesses in Kimberley are visited including Greg’s and Subway asking whether she is “taking away any trade”.  She was only trading one day a week (Monday) from 830-1400 but her permit stated she could be there between 0800-1800.
  • Whilst Steph was trading in Kimberley before she was “suspended” she was subjected to foul and abusive language.

 

Key Facts

 

  • Broxtowe Borough Council became a Conservative controlled administration in May 2015.
  • Kimberley currently has 3 Borough Councillors (from May 2015), two Conservatives plus myself.
  • Kimberley Town Council also had a change of administration also in May 2015. Since then there have been at least seven resignations (none of which have been reported by the local press), despite copious publicity given to the resignations prior to May 2015 in the run up to the General Election and local elections.
  • Stephanie Hather is a single parent, having lived in Kimberley all her life.  She has traded within the borough of Broxtowe with a Jacket Potato Stall in Stapleford since 24 January 2017 to date. She pays in Stapleford £96 (Inc VAT) per month rent to Broxtowe Borough Council for trading.
  • In October 2016 she applied to trade in Kimberley.
  • Independent Cllr Richard MacRae in Stapleford strongly supports her business in Stapleford Town Centre and acknowledges that she is a real benefit to the town and stimulates extra footfall.
  • On 27 July 2017 Anny Soubry (Conservative MP for Broxtowe) wrote to me stating “I know Broxtowe Borough Council has always been pro-business and understands the importance of encouraging people to start their own business in Broxtowe”.

 

Newspaper articles

 

  • Not available on line but available by hard copy – Friday 17 March 2017 Eastwood & Kimberley Advertiser (letter from Kimberley resident Ellis Tansley) highlighting his dismay at the way Steph was being treated, and the way in which Conservative politics was being conducted locally.

 

Timeline of events

 

1) On 8 November 2016 the three Kimberley Borough Councillors for Kimberley are asked for their views by council officers on a using Kimberley square from a jacket potato stall, trialling on a Wednesday, and in conjunction with local traders.

2) On 8 November 2016 I give the scheme my support.

3) On 8 November 2016 Opposition to the scheme is received from Kimberley Conservative councillor(s).

4) On 9 November 2016 whilst at the council offices in Beeston I am advised by officers that the scheme has been “pulled” due to the pressure applied Kimberley Conservative Cllrs opposition.

5) In my November 2016 newsletter –  http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2016/11/broxtowe-news-update-information-service-november-2016/ (item 4 – I covered the details).

6) I meet Steph in Sainsbury’s café in Kimberley on Wednesday 25 January 2017 to discuss her displeasure with how she was being treated by Broxtowe Borough Council.   She asked me to help her with the grievances she had. I agreed to this.

7) On Wednesday 15 February 2017 – Steph and I meet with Ruth Hyde, Chief Executive of Broxtowe Borough Council to discuss her case.

8) The matter is then covered again in my March newsletter: http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2017/03/broxtowe-news-update-information-service-march-2017/ (item 3).

9) Then in my June newsletter http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2017/06/broxtowe-news-update-information-service-june-2017/ I report (item 2) that all seems well and that Steph has been given permission to trade by Broxtowe Borough Council in Kimberley on a trial basis from 3 July 2017.

10) Whilst I was on holiday in Greece in July I start to receive multiple angry Facebook notifications from Kimberley residents asking why Steph had been forced to suspend her Jacket Potato stall. On Monday 24 July I ring the Chief Executive of Broxtowe (from Greece) to try and find out exactly what is happening.

11) On 27 July I receive an email from the Chief Executive of Broxtowe Borough Council acknowledging that a trial had been granted to Steph but because of “concerns raised” the matter would be referred to the Jobs & Economy Committee at Broxtowe Borough Council set for Thursday 14 September, for a decision on whether the trial could continue.

12) On Wednesday 2 August at 12 noon I have a meeting with the Deputy Chief Executive and Complaints Officer at Broxtowe to try and get to the bottom of whom actually is intervening to try and stop Steph trading.

13) I am promised a response to my questions at the meeting above. No one came back to me.

14) On Wednesday 23 August at 1645 I meet with the Chief Executive to try (again) to get to the bottom of everything. I am advised that the matter is being referred to the Jobs & Economy Committee for Thursday 14 September 2017.

15) On 30 August 2017 Steph makes a formal complaint to Broxtowe Borough Council.  She also asks for the matter to be removed from the Jobs & Economy Committee.   She additionally makes a Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act for all relevant information held by Broxtowe to be released to her.

16) On 31 August 2017 Steph makes a separate complaint to Kimberley Town Council regarding the way she has been treated. She is told in ensuing correspondence by Kimberley Town Council that it is for Broxtowe Borough Council to deal with and not Kimberley Town Council.

17) On Wednesday 19 September I contact Broxtowe Borough Council to find out what is happening with Steph’s complaint. I am told that the relevant paperwork regarding Subject Access had not been sent by Steph (confidential items including copies of passports). On checking with Steph I am told that the information was sent First Class by Steph a week ago (with a stipulation to be sent via post) by the council.

18) I am then advised by the council that it would not be reasonable to visit Steph at home to collect the information, as it had been lost/not received. However if she called at the council in Beeston, she could be seen.

19) Steph is reluctant to send the information again (having already complied with every single request). I complain about this to the council.

20) Thursday 21 September 2017 Steph and myself receive confirmation from Broxtowe that the Subject Access request now has in fact been received.

 

What can we conclude from all of this thus far?

In my 26 years as a Labour councillor in Broxtowe, never, ever have I witnessed anything quite remotely like this.

For a single parent, having lived in Kimberley all of her life to be treated in such a manner has she has is nothing short of appalling. She has long dreamt of trading in her own town.

I will continue supporting Steph in obtaining explanation and answers from both Broxtowe Borough council and Kimberley Town Council, and for her also to be able to trade in Kimberley without intimidation or fear.

I’ll leave it up to you to draw your own conclusions. If you have any questions, feedback or would like to support Steph in her efforts to trade in Kimberley please let me know.

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service August (& July) 2017

Hi all

A very warm welcome to August (and July’s) update and a special greeting to people who have joined recently.

Apologies for not being able to write last month, following holidays two pressing matters particularly in Kimberley are taking up a lot of my time currently, both as I write remain regretfully unresolved.  In my next update in September I will be devoting the whole newsletter to The Hidden Bakery and Stephanie Hather’s Jacket Potato stall (both in Kimberley).  If anyone has any questions before then please contact me.

I trust that information below provided is useful.

If anyone needs assistance with casework, or any feedback please get in touch.

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service August (and July) 2017

1)  Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood & into Amber Valley

Work continues behind the scenes with various bodies in Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire in order to continue progress on this very important scheme.

The Nottingham Post picked up the story on 30 July and the key point to take on board is that a more in depth study is being called for:

Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood & into Amber Valley

2)  Aldi Store, Stapleford

I have been asked recently about the latest position on the Aldi Store in Stapleford.  The information that I received on 24 July is that it has all gone very quiet from Aldi’s perspective.  They do have have planning permission for their store and the matter is firmly with them regarding timescales.

More information available from Steffan Saunders – Planning Policy Manager at Broxtowe Borough Council:

steffan.saunders@broxtowe.gov.uk

3) Consultation on Double Yellow Lines for Cornfield Road, Kimberley

A consultation letter to affected residents has been sent out by Derwent Living.  The expiry date for making your comments was 16 June 2017.   I have now received the feedback from Derwent.

There were nine responses that I have been sent by Derwent, which represented in turn 5 residents being in favour of double yellow lines being placed with four people opposed.  I am currently liaising with Derwent as to how best take this matter forward.

Please contact Lisa Gregory or myself for further information

Lisa.Gregory@DerwentLiving.com

 

4)  Eastwood Road/Maws Lane junction, Kimberley

The Local Government Ombudsman is considering representations against Nottinghamshire County Council in respect of the process they have followed leading up to the recent works taking place.   I have received documents from the Ombudsman to say that their investigations (and notification of outcome) have been delayed.  When a final response is received I will let you know.

 

 

5)  Anti social behaviour – Sainsbury’s car park Kimberley

I was alerted last month to bouts of anti social behaviour reoccurring (after several years of improvements) at the rear of Sainsbury’s car park in Kimberley (affecting residents who live close by on Chapter Drive).  I have been in touch with the Anti Social Behaviour Team at Broxtowe and the local police – PC Paul Toon to try and work out some long term solutions.  This may in turn involve Sainsbury’s of course as well.

If you have any questions please contact PC Paul Toon – paul.toon@nottinghamshire.pnn.police.uk – PC2446 or myself.

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service June 2017

 

1)  Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood & into Amber Valley

Work continues behind the scenes with various bodies in Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire in order to continue progress on this very important scheme.   I hope to have more detailed information in October once discussions between councillors from across the political spectrum locally have taken place.  If anyone wants any more information in the meantime please get in touch.  A more detailed summary of previous and recent activity is shown at the following link:

Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood & into Amber Valley

2)  Jacket Potato Stall is coming to Kimberley (a victory for justice and common sense)

I reported in some detail (some very localised) political problems that Steph Hather was experiencing in trying to legitimately set up a Jacket Potato stall in Kimberley – please see http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2017/03/broxtowe-news-update-information-service-march-2017/ – for full details.

Over the past couple of months I have worked closely with Steph to try and get matters resolved.

I am very pleased to say that all the previous outstanding issues appear to have been resolved and that she is now to start trading on Toll Bar Square, Kimberley every Monday (on an initial trail period) starting from this coming Monday 3 July.  Times are between 830am and 2pm – selling jacket potatoes, breakfast cobs and burgers.

I would like to thank in particular Mrs Ruth Hyde (Chief Executive), assisted by officers John Delaney and Matthew Batterham – who have all worked tirelessly to bring about a positive outcome.

All the best to Steph too in her endeavours and I hope she is really successful.

3) Consultation on Double Yellow Lines for Cornfield Road, Kimberley

A consultation letter to affected residents has been sent out by Derwent Living.  The expiry date for making your comments was 16 June 2017.   I have now received the feedback from Derwent – Donna Gilmore – Donna.Gilmore@DerwentLiving.com

I will be scrutinising the responses alongside Donna during the next six weeks and we will you know what the majority of residents have said.

 

 

4)  Eastwood Road/Maws Lane junction

The Local Government Ombudsman is considering representations against Nottinghamshire County Council in respect of the process they have followed leading up to the recent works taking place.   I have received documents from the Ombudsman to say that their investigations (and notification of outcome) have been delayed.  When a final response is received I will let you know.

 

5)  National Garden Scheme – garden opening – 7 Collygate, Kimberley, Nottingham, NG16 2PJ

The beautiful garden of Doreen Fahey will be open this coming Sunday 2 July – 1pm-5pm.  Admission £3 for adults and free for children.

For more details contact Doreen: 0115 9192690

 

6) Stapleford Community Centre

There is a lot of work being undertaken in Stapleford to try and rescue the local community centre from closing.

For more information please contact:

Robert Aldred
Trustee
Stapleford Community Association
or Cllr Richard Macrae

Richard.Macrae@broxtowe.gov.uk

8)  Part 2 Local Plan Update – Broxtowe Borough Council

The Council will publish its Part 2 Local Plan shortly, following on from the Core Strategy which was adopted in 2014.

The Part 2 Local Plan is the detailed plan which includes the specific sites for allocated development (up until 2028) to meet the needs set in the Core Strategy. It also details the policies against which planning applications will be assessed. When the Plan is published, a 6 week consultation will take place inviting you to have your say.

The draft allocations are necessary to ensure the Council can demonstrate a five year housing land supply and to meet the Core Strategy development requirements. These allocations will put the Council in a much stronger position in protecting its Green Belt and other open spaces.

9)   East Midlands councils (policy briefing)

If you are interested in policy work being undertaken and affecting councils across the East Midlands region – there is a lot of information contained in the link below, ranging from Hs2 latest, to announcements from the last weeks 2017 Queens Speech:

http://www.emcouncils.gov.uk/write/EMC_Policy_Brief_-_23_June_2017.pdf

 

10)  Suggested recommended reading (current national issues)

I introduced this item a few months ago, and feedback is that people do like it.  I may not agree with everything that is written – but the views are stimulating and thought provoking – here’s a couple of the latest articles I’ve read:

 

  • Deal or No Deal – what Theresa May could have done for the good of the country – but singularly failed:

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/jun/27/hung-parliament-dup-may-old-rules-collaboration?CMP=share_btn_tw

 

  • A single lesson from the last year in politics “emotional connection is a precondition of success”

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service May 2017 – General Election (June 8 special)

Hi all

I write this newsletter in very sombre times.  I had planned to send this newsletter originally some days ago, but in view of the abhorrent events in Manchester on Monday – all political campaigning was temporarily suspended.

In one sense the General Election on Thursday 8 June now seems an unwelcome distraction from the grief, unity and compassion now indelibly etched in the hearts and minds of all of us towards those who are grieving and for those who so tragically lost their lives.

It is my hope that whatever the result of the General Election we can perhaps in a sense as not experienced before come together in our local communities with a sense of hope and determination against the dark evil will not prevail.  That we would once again in our prayers rediscover a sense of inspiration, and in our tears understand that in some way goodness and mercy will prevail.

If you live in the Broxtowe area you can offer your thoughts of condolences here:

https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/book-of-condolence/book-of-condolence-manchester/

Moving onto the General Election on 8 June – I’ve included some specific details below, alongside a shorter update on other issues.

I’ll be back next month in June with a comprehensive community update.

If you need help with any casework before, please get in touch.

Best regards

2)  General Election Thursday 8 June 2017

Broxtowe

All the candidates standing for election in the Broxtowe parliamentary constituency are shown here: statement-of-persons-nominated-broxtowe-constituency

I’m going to focus my thoughts on the Labour candidate Greg Marshall.

I’ve known Greg for six years and have served alongside him in his role as a borough councillor in Broxtowe.  Greg is a very passionate person, especially about Broxtowe and he is a strong public speaker.  He shares my rather dry sense of humour, and whilst we admittedly don’t always agree on the way that the Labour Party leadership currently concentrates its focus, we most definitely share the same values of solidarity, a sense of compassion for the vulnerable and for robust local communities.   We remain strong friends also despite of our sharp differences on choice of football teams.

I would be very proud to see Greg win on 8 June 2017 and I know he would be an excellent ambassador for all of the residents across Broxtowe. I unreservedly endorse him for this election in Broxtowe and would urge all residents to vote for him.

A statement directly from Greg is shown immediately below & his latest leaflet is shown here: DMK2238553

Introducing your Labour candidate Greg Marshall  

I am standing to be your next MP because I am from Broxtowe and I am for Broxtowe in everything I do. I was raised in Attenborough and have lived locally for most of my life. I currently live in Beeston with my wife Jane and our two daughters. 

I have worked for the Environment Agency for over twenty years, protecting our water environment. I am a school governor, a Borough Councillor, and a staunch defender of public services. I will stand up for our local area, and for local people, jobs and services.

 

The things I stand for 

In this election, we have a choice: we can pick a fairer society based on principles of equality or we can take a divisive approach which sets people in our communities against each other. I stand for a fair society, where we have a fully funded NHS without privatisation, where our children can access comprehensive education, where our pensions are protected and where we all benefit from the proceeds of a strong, sustainable economy.

 

My pledges to you 

1. I am from Broxtowe, and I promise to stand up for Broxtowe. I will always do what is best for our community. I will listen to local residents and I will speak up for the things that matter to us. 

2. I will fight to keep our NHS public, and well funded. We can and will care for everyone especially the elderly, sick and vulnerable. I want increased investment and to end privatisation. 

3. A Brexit that works for everyone. I will represent all views in getting the

best deal for our community and I will oppose strongly any deal that is not right for the people of Broxtowe. 

4. Investing in jobs and the economy is a top priority. I will support measures that create the environment for economic growth, giving hope and opportunity to the many not the few. 

5. I will work hard for better homes and better schools. We need to bring about long term investment in housing and schools, to deliver for current and future generations.

 

A positive plan for North Broxtowe

In North Broxtowe, the only change that we have seen under the Tories is things getting significantly worse. 

Some things are clear: we have seen an increase in traffic congestion across the whole area: at Nuthall Island, in Kimberley town centre, and in Trowell as a result of the Stanton developments. Air quality is getting worse in Trowell too, and the threat of open casting looms ever closer. In Kimberley, we are seeing shops moving into the high street and then moving straight back out again as they struggle to keep up with their business rates. 

Something has to give. It is time for an MP that has a clear vision for North Broxtowe. These issues are being treated in isolation but they are not separate. We need a joined up plan for the North of the borough, looking at how we foster economic development, how we support small businesses, and how we do that in the context of having a joined up approach to transport. 

If elected as your MP, one of my first tasks will be to set about promoting a positive vision for the future of North Broxtowe. My plan for the North of the constituency will focus on supporting local economic growth, along with practical solutions to the transport issues we are facing. 

 

Ashfield

The Labour candidate is Gloria De Piero.  Gloria has been a brilliant constituency MP fighting for local residents on pensions for former miners, securing broadband in Selston, supporting local schools and campaigning on road safety amongst many other issues.

I will be voting for Gloria.

Projects throughout the UKhave included energy monitoring and data/billing analysis to assist companies to improve efficient use of energy. This has included disputes with electricity suppliers and distributors and site surveys, installation of temporary monitoring equipment and recommendations to install suitable power factor correction equipment. Site surveys for the installation of a M&T at major sites, have been undertaken and with the recent advances in remote monitoring technologies surveys and installation of GSM smart meters have been undertaken at distribution centres of a leading logistics company. A request by a leading UKenergy supplier has resulted in the installation of remote data collection technology, including planning and installation of remote data logging equipment to monitor and analyse usage data from geothermal sites within theUK. This work is ongoing in the development of renewable energy and low carbon technology.

Projects throughout the UKhave included energy monitoring and data/billing analysis to assist companies to improve efficient use of energy. This has included disputes with electricity suppliers and distributors and site surveys, installation of temporary monitoring equipment and recommendations to install suitable power factor correction equipment. Site surveys for the installation of a M&T at major sites, have been undertaken and with the recent advances in remote monitoring technologies surveys and installation of GSM smart meters have been undertaken at distribution centres of a leading logistics company. A request by a leading UKenergy supplier has resulted in the installation of remote data collection technology, including planning and installation of remote data logging equipment to monitor and analyse usage data from geothermal sites within theUK. This work is ongoing in the development of renewable energy and low carbon technology.

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – April 2017

Hi all

A warm welcome to my April newsletter and a special welcome to all those who have joined so far during 2017.

Due to the imminent General Election called last week for Thursday 8 June, as you can imagine my already busy work load has now as they say “gone through the roof”!  This update is therefore much briefer than it is usually.  Incidentally if you are going to be away on holiday in June and will require a postal vote and are not already registered for one please see: https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/for-you/elections-voting/parliamentary-election-8th-june/

If you have feedback on any issue or require assistance with personal casework, please give me a shout, I’m more than happy to help if I can.

Best regards

Richard

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – April 2017

1)  Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood & into Amber Valley

I am very pleased to report that Eastwood Town Council are making a very positive contribution towards the development of the Tram extension from Phoenix Park.  As part of the council’s Neighbourhood Plan – they held some public open sessions last month and I attended one of them on Saturday 18 March.  The full updated details regarding the tram extension are provided at the link below.

Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood & into Amber Valley

There remains very important work in the background towards the tram development with ongoing discussion between various local authorities.  I will continue to keep you updated with progress.

 

2)  Double yellow lines – Cornfield Road, Kimberley (opposite the new Coop on Maws Lane)

Thank you to everyone who has been in touch about this matter.  I have received lots of feedback via email, telephone and Facebook.

The background to this issue can be found for example in my March newsletter which you can view: http://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2017/03/broxtowe-news-update-information-service-march-2017/

– so I won’t repeat it all here.

What I can update you on is a very productive meeting I held with Donna Gilmore
Housing Officer at Derwent Living.  We met yesterday 27 April in Rumbletums Café in Kimberley and discussed in great detail the proposals to be put to the County Council for double yellow lines on Cornfield Road (opposite the Coop entrance).  We went through the requests I had received for the double yellow lines and also those who were opposing the idea.  We also talked about other matters relating to CCTV and lighting in the area.

We decided that at this stage it would be prudent for Donna to consult with all affected residents on Cornfield as to the suggested double yellow lines and see what response is obtained from all residents affected.  The last thing we wanted to was submit a joint bid to the County Council, then only to find that this then causes different problems elsewhere.  Residents on Cornfield Road will also be asked for alternative views on how road safety can be improved if there is a widespread opposition to the yellow lines.

When the responses come back Donna & I will meet again and work out a way forward that is agreeable to the majority of residents.  I will update you in due course and if you have any questions in the meantime please get in touch.

 

3)  Ombudsman Complaint – against Nottinghamshire County Council regarding works undertaken at Maws Lane Junction

I have received this week information from the Ombudsman regarding a complaint that was sent by local residents to the Ombudsman regarding the works that have been undertaken.

The Ombudsman has asked the County Council a series of very detailed questions including how the work that has now been completed came about in the first instance, how the consultation process was followed, the evidence that was (and was not taken into account) and various other matters.

When the final investigation is complete I will let you know.

 

4)   National Garden Scheme – Kimberley

The beautiful garden at 7 Colly Gate, Kimberley NG16 2PJ – is open to the public on Monday 1st May (bank holiday) – 1pm until 5pm.

For more information please contact Doreen Fahey: dfahey456@hotmail.com

 

5)   D H Lawrence Museum, Eastwood

This coming Sunday 30 April, visitors can enjoy free taster tours of the museum with costumed guides and demonstrations of the Victorian Wash-house in Eastwood – more details are available at:

https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/news-events/news/press-releases-2017/april/free-entry-to-dh-lawrence-museum-for-the-big-day-out/?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term=

 

6)  Refuse collection Noel Street, Kimberley

I have received reports recently of residents’ bins that have been missed for collection and left unemptied for a while.  I have reported this matter to Broxtowe.  If anyone has experienced any specific problems please do let me know.

 

7)   Nottinghamshire County Council Elections – Thursday 4 May 2017

Next Thursday there are elections for Nottinghamshire County Council (as there are elsewhere too in the East Midlands – for example Derbyshire and Leicestershire).

The full list of candidates standing throughout Nottinghamshire is shown here:

http://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/elections/nottinghamshire-county-council-elections

The nominated candidates within Broxtowe can be viewed at:

http://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/elections/nottinghamshire-county-council-elections/broxtowe-candidates

Across Derbyshire the candidates for the County Council are listed at:

http://derbyshire.gov.uk/council/elections/local-elections/candidates-by-electoral-division/default.asp

 

There are some significant boundary changes in Nottinghamshire which will mean that you may well find yourself in a new ward for the County Council to that which you are used to.  I’ll concentrate predominantly on the issues in Kimberley (as I know that area best), but in the spirit of openness I have provided details above of all candidates who are standing.

Kimberley will now be combined with Nuthall (whereas previously Kimberley was grouped together with Kimberley, Awsworth, Cossall & Trowell).

By way of brief history (Kimberley & Trowell as it then was) had Labour representation from 1993 – 1997 (Robert Pettitt), and then from 1997 through to 2005 when I held the seat.  I stood down from the County Council in 2005 as I was Labour parliamentary candidate in Charnwood (Leicestershire).  The Liberal Democrats – Ken Rigby from Trowell took the seat in 2005 and is the current incumbent.  He is retiring.  The list of candidates for Kimberley & Nuthall are shown below as follows:

  • Boettge, Kat (Green Party)
  • Cullen, Teresa Ann (Labour Party)
  • Jones, Graham Andrew (UK Independence Party (UKIP))
  • Owen, Philip John (The Conservative Party Candidate)

I have been working for and will be supporting Teresa Cullen on 4 May.  Teresa is the only candidate who has openly committed to supporting the tram extension to Kimberley and through to Eastwood (and into Amber Valley).

One key question I think is really worth considering is this before voting next Thursday – we already have in Broxtowe a Conservative controlled Borough Council and a Conservative MP.  Do you really want a one party state?  The Conservatives controlling the County Council too would be really unhealthy for democracy and would mean our precious public services already decimated by current  government policies, would be basically wiped out and completely replaced by a vastly inferior private system.  In turn then accountable to no one and run purely for the sake of profit.

Gerry Hargreaves has a background of electrical installation and maintenance followed by considerable experience of energy monitoring providing technical support to the marketing division of East Midlands Electricity.

Projects throughout the UKhave included energy monitoring and data/billing analysis to assist companies to improve efficient use of energy. This has included disputes with electricity suppliers and distributors and site surveys, installation of temporary monitoring equipment and recommendations to install suitable power factor correction equipment. Site surveys for the installation of a M&T at major sites, have been undertaken and with the recent advances in remote monitoring technologies surveys and installation of GSM smart meters have been undertaken at distribution centres of a leading logistics company. A request by a leading UKenergy supplier has resulted in the installation of remote data collection technology, including planning and installation of remote data logging equipment to monitor and analyse usage data from geothermal sites within theUK. This work is ongoing in the development of renewable energy and low carbon technology.

Site visits and travel are significant reduced with the application of t-mac technology.
