Hi all, and a warm welcome to the April newsletter.

A special greetings to all those who have joined recently.

I apologise for not being able to write this April’s edition earlier this month. There was a big response earlier this month to the Maws Lane issue in Kimberley, which I am still wading through – more about this at item 5 below.

We’ve also moved house this month to Eastwood, and for any of you that have moved appreciate the stresses and strains this causes!

I hope that you find the contents in this newsletter useful.

If you need help with personal casework do let me know, and please free to send feedback and comments.


Best regards


Richard Robinson

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – April 2016

1)   National Garden Scheme in Kimberley


The beautiful garden of Doreen Fahey at 7 Colly Gate, Kimberley is open again this year on Bank holiday Monday 2 May.  Open from 1pm to 5pm There will be lovely tea and cake for Doreen’s chosen charity other days by appointment.

For more details contact Doreen – 0115 9192690 – dfahey456@hotmail.com

2)   New Deputy Leader of Broxtowe Borough Council


This week the ruling Conservative administration at Broxtowe elected a new Deputy Leader – Cllr Mel Crow (who is from Kimberley).

I would like to congratulate Mel on attaining this very senior position in such a short space of time, bearing in mind this time last year she was not a Cllr – this is a fast tracked promotion.

Despite our political differences, which on some issues are quite sharp, we get on well.  I wish her every success in her new role and I am sure that she will bring a new conciliatory, vibrant and positive dimension to council matters benefitting in turn residents throughout the whole of the Borough.


3)  Beeston Post Office

Cllr Janet Patrick – Labour councillor in Beeston has been leading the campaign against the closure of Beeston Post Office – see:


A petition of 3965 signatures has been presented to Richard Hall, Public Affairs Manager at the Post Office, against the closure.

The original idea is that the Post Office become part of the W H Smith franchise, however from the size of the petition above, it’s clear that there is much public disquiet about this.

A public consultation is mooted to take place on 24 and 25 May – venue to be confirmed.

For more information contact Cllr Janet Patrick – janet.patrick@broxtowe.gov.uk



4)   Police & Crime Commissioner Elections – Thursday 5 May 2016

Next Thursday 5 May in Broxtowe, whilst there are no local council elections, we do however have important elections for the Police and Crime Commissioner, as do 40 other police force areas in England & Wales, excluding London – http://www.apccs.police.uk/home/2016-police-crime-commissioner-elections/

The Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) is a relatively new role that replaced local police authorities in 2012.

Our PCC in Nottinghamshire is currently Paddy Tipping (Labour) – and he is standing for re-election on 5 May.  More details about Paddy here:


I know Paddy well, he is extremely conscientious and passionate about policing and I believe therefore  a good ambassador for Nottinghamshire.  He works hard to support our police force in Nottinghamshire, and continually looks at creative ways of preventing crime, supporting victims, whilst ensuring justice and fairness for Nottinghamshire’s residents.

You can find out more general information about the work of PCCs here: http://www.aboutmyvote.co.uk/what-can-i-vote-for/police-and-crime-commissioners


The full list of candidates for the PCC elections in Nottinghamshire next Thursday are as follows:


  • Tony BATES             – Independent
  • Tony HARPER          – Conservative
  • Fran LOI                  – UKIP
  • Paddy TIPPING        – Labour
  • Jason B ZADROZNY – Independent


Now, a number of people have asked me about the voting system as it is different to the General Election (where you can only place one cross against a candidate/party).

A good number of you may have voted by post already, but for those who are going to vote next Thursday (and I really hope you do vote) – it’s your chance to have your say, I’ll explain the procedure here:

You will be presented with a ballot paper with two columns – one for your first preference – and the other for your second preference.

How is the winner determined?

After voting has closed the following process then takes place to determine who has won:

If after the first count a candidate has got more than 50% of the votes cast, they are declared the winner.

If there is no candidate above 50% the vote then a second stage of counting takes place whereby the two candidates with the most first preferences go through.  Everyone else is eliminated.

The second preference votes on the papers for eliminated candidates are then counted for the top two candidates.

Whoever gets the most votes at this second stage is then declared the winner.

I hope this makes sense, I have tried to explain in as clear a way as possible.

Whilst this sounds complex on paper – it’s a system that works in many organisations throughout this country and in different parts of the world in various organisations.

This is a more proportional system of voting (which incidentally I favour as I believe the current First past the Post system for General Elections greatly distorts results and leaves lots of people’s views left both  unrepresented and unrecognised).


5)   Consultation on making Maws Lane & Hardy Street, Kimberley one way

In January of this year I published a report which looked in details at some of the traffic problems in the Hardy Street and Swingate areas of Kimberley:


Additionally two public meetings were held at Rumbletums where local residents came and gave their ideas on how some of the problems in both areas above could be addressed.

With regards to Hardy Street area a number of residents requested that consideration be given to making Maws Lane and Hardy Street a One Way system.  Particular issues were raised about traffic congestion in and around Hardy Street and also poor visibility at the Eastwood Road/Maws Lane Junction.

Additionally I was presented with a petition regarding the possible loss of two car parking spaces on Eastwood Road Kimberley, close to the Maws Lane Junction.  The feedback from local residents was that taking two car spaces away would only be a short-term solution and would not resolve the wider issue that needs to be addressed ie traffic congestion in and around the Maws Lane junction – that a more comprehensive solution was required.

After listening to the views put forward by local residents I submitted the petition to Broxtowe Borough Council, urging them to work with Nottinghamshire County Council to find a sustainable and acceptable solution to the traffic congestion problems, that takes into account the views of local residents.

I understand now that the petition is being presented to the County Council on Thursday 12 May.

In terms of the idea surrounding a proposed One Way system on Maws Lane – the ideas coming forward from a number of local residents supporting this emphasised:


  • Making Maws Lane and Hardy Street a One Way system: traffic would flow up Maws Lane and down Hardy Street.  It is envisaged that having this arrangement in place would reduce the congestion at the Maws Lane junction, and make traffic flow better overall. This would also have the added benefit of potentially keeping the 2 car parking spaces that were at risk.

In order to obtain the wider views of people in and around Kimberley – I designed a survey:


As mentioned in my introduction – I have received a big response to the Maws Lane topic with strong feelings on both sides of the arguments for and against a One Way system.

I am going to compile a full report and plan to present this to Kimberley Town Council and work with them during the summer.  I will also be talking with the emergency services to obtain their views, before referring to the County Council.

I will also be discussing the matter with Cllr Mel Crow – Deputy Leader Broxtowe Borough Council next Tuesday 3 May.

When the final papers are ready I will publicise these in a future newsletter and on my website.



6)    Consultation on possible improvements in and around Swingate, Kimberley

This is a summary of points raised by local residents at the January public meeting concerning the Swingate area of Kimberley:

Traffic exiting Greens Lane

  • Traffic needs to be able to exit Greens Lane more quickly; this would relieve congestion – this could be achieved by having traffic lights at the bottom of Greens Lane to replace the mini roundabout.
  • Make a wider exit at the bottom of Greens Lane having a left and right turning lane – this would enable traffic to exit Greens lane more quickly – this would involve taking some of the flowerbed away on the left of Greens Lane.
  • Pedestrian crossing too close to mini roundabout at bottom of Greens Lane.
  • Bus stops on Greens Lane – opposite each other, also bus timing point on Greens Lane – contributes to congestion – could timing point be moved to Knowle Lane?
  • Construct lay-bys for buses on Greens Lane to relieve congestion – Sainsbury’s to contribute to cost.  Acknowledged this would take space from car parks in both precinct and Sainsbury’s.

High Street

  • Possible escape road for Swingate residents from Sainsbury’s car park routed through old telephone exchange on High Street, Swingate. This would avoid need for Swingate residents to turn onto Greens Lane when exiting Sainsbury’s car park.
  • Cherubs Day Nursery – problem caused by vehicles exiting onto blind corner – suggested these vehicles could exit via road through old telephone exchange (see above).

Suggestions relating to both areas

  • 20mph limit through centre of Kimberley from Broomhill Rd to Nine Corners (Hardy Street)
  • 20mph limit along Maws Lane, Cliff Boulevard and Hardy Street..


Other unrelated issues also raised at same meeting

  • Drugs use in the water tower area of Swingate causing problems for residents.
  • Needles found in Swingate area.

6a)   Wider points made at the public meetings in January


  • There is a traffic light controlled pedestrian crossing and a bus stop very close to exit of Maws Lane.  It was suggested to lobby the County Council again that the bus stop is in the wrong place and should be moved further towards Gilthill.
  • Reinforce the weight limit on Maws Lane.
  • Consider opening up Parkham Road – currently residents of Dorchester Road and Tiptree Close use Norman Street and Cliff Boulevard as their only exit.  It was suggested that Cliff Boulevard traffic problems could be eased by adopting Parkham Road so these residents could turn left to exit on Parkham Road and onto Hardy Street therefore avoiding Cliff Boulevard.
  • Pedestrian crossing needed at Nine Corners (bottom of Hardy Street) for people getting to church and also Kettlebrook Lodge.


Other unrelated issues also raised at same meeting

  • Drugs use in the water tower area of Swingate causing problems for residents.
  • Needles found in Swingate area.

As an update to some of the matters raised above – I have since met with Dave Walker, Highways Manager at Nottinghamshire County Council for the Broxtowe area.  We discussed pedestrian crossings near Gilt Hill (Ikea), Nine Corners & Gill Hill School Kimberley, resurfacing of Alma Hill Bridleway, and moving the bus stop on Eastwood Road further away form the junction with Maws Lane. I need to now do some follow up work on these issues in order to try and get some real progress.  I’ll update you in future newsletters.

I am very pleased that Jubilee Street (resurfaced) and Church Hill (being resurfaced) – Kimberley – has finally transpired.  We have waited too long for this action to take place.

I remember walking up Church Hill Kimberley with a local resident several years ago, looking at every single pot hole in this area.

I then made strong representations to the County Council on these two roads (and many others too).

I will keep up the pressure to ensure that Kimberley in particular is not forgotten in future years.


7)   Friends of Bennerley Viaduct

Earlier this year I attended a meeting of the Friends of Bennerley group that met in Awsworth.
Some of main aims of the group are as follows:
– bringing the viaduct back into use, raise awareness of the viaduct
– contribute towards regeneration
– maintain a variety of habitats in order to encourage biodiversity
– work with Sustrans to improve the condition of the viaduct and its surrounds
– to improve the quality of the site and its facilities

Plans to restore and reopen Bennerley Viaduct have now received a significant boost thanks to a pledge by Broxtowe Borough Council to allocate up to £20,000 towards the project as part of a match funding arrangement.

Bennerley Viaduct is a grade II* listed structure dating from 1877. It has a 440 metre span across the Erewash Valley and the viaduct deck is some 18 metres (60 feet) above the River Erewash.

The viaduct will eventually be the key focal point of the Great Northern Greenway which aims to provide a traffic free cycling route along the line of the Great Northern Railway between Derby and Nottingham.

if you want to find out more about the project and/or get involved please contact Kieran Lee at kieran.lee@sustrans.org.uk 07823 536941
