Broxtowe News Update & Information Service September/October 2019

Hi all

Welcome to the September/October edition of my local newsletter.  A special welcome to all those who have joined during the past few weeks, and thank you to everyone who has been in touch recently.

You may have noticed that for the past couple of months, I have issued bi-monthly as opposed to monthly newsletters.  This simply reflects the sheer volume of work currently not only in my council role, but also in my day job working for an MP.

I hope to be able to issues newsletters every month again soon, but with the small matter of Brexit in the background (and whatever happens after then), it’s rather busy for now.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you need help with personal casework or anything else.

I hope that you find the content here both useful and stimulating.

Feedback as always is very welcome.

Best regards

 Broxtowe News Update & Information Service September/October 2019

2)  Business networking – boosting the high street: local shops and businesses in Kimberley
On August 28 we held our first business networking session at Rumbeltums in Kimberley.
This was a really positive event with various businesses coming together to showcase what they do.  We also heard from Rumbletums (and in particular their successful funding news and what this means for them in Kimberley).  All those there appreciated just much they are an integral part of the local community.  We also heard from Cllr Trevor Rood (Chair Kimberley Town Council) who talked about the facilities available at The Chapel on the Hill:
We are looking to hold a further networking opportunity for Kimberley businesses in November.  The date of this is subject to change (pending a possible General Election).  At the moment this is pencilled in for Wednesday 6 November 2019 (5 30pm to 7 30pm) – and we will be looking to hold this at The Doghouse, Kimberley.
I am very excited about this initiative – not the possible General Election 🙂 More on that subject below at item 4.
The networking sessions allow established and new businesses to meet together, share experiences, problems, opportunities and good practice.

4)   Have Your Say in Kimberley

At the local elections in May this year – click on: 65090 A4 4pp Councillor Leaflet – I made specific commitments to have regular sessions in Kimberley where residents can come and raise questions, share concerns and in turn I am able to held accountable on a face to face basis on local matters.  I’ve been consistent over many years in sending out newsletters via email, however several months ago a number of people said they would like more personal visible interaction as well.  This was a fair point – hence the move to starting “Have Your Say”.  I held the first session since the elections in May at the White Lion Pub in Kimberley on 25 July.  There was some really useful feedback from local residents on a range of subjects including arrangements for Christmas decorations in Kimberley, a real desire to see a cinema come to this area, and support for the tram extension.  Inevitably discussions turned to matters national regarding Brexit and it was good to have a robust conversation about how people were feeling.
The next Have Your Say Session is going to be held next Wednesday 9 October-  8pm at the Miners Return on Eastwood Road, Kimberley.  It’s a great venue and the people are lovely there, as well as being very straight-talking.  Do come along with any questions, concerns and points you would like to raise.  There’s lots to discuss!   I see that leaflets are arriving at people’s homes relating to a possible early General Election – I’d be suprised if we didn’t touch on that and Brexit too.
I’m hoping to have the next Have Your Say session early in the New Year, and this time at Rumbletums – details to follow closer to the time.
5)   Langley Mill Super Hub – tram extension Line 4, phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood & into Amber Valley
There continues to be huge amount of work being put into making sure that the Langley Mill Super Hub (incorporating the tram extension from Phoenix Park through Kimberley & Eastwood) comes to fruition.
The Jobs and Economy Committee at Broxtowe Borough Council dated 5 September 2019 supported the commissioning of an in-depth engineering study: – this is due to be ratified at the meeting of the Finance & Resources Committee at Broxtowe on 10 October 2019:
Please continue to keep in touch with questions, comments and feedback.
6)   Recent flooding in Kimberley   
The recent inclement weather in Kimberley has resulted in specific problems in various locations, for example parts of Eastwood Road and Main Street.  I reported last week the problems with the particular part of the pavement on Main Street due to the deluge of rain to the County Council – as below.IMG_3577 (1)
I’m pleased to say this has now been repaired this week under a VIA East Midlands Hams ref:  82758
Urgent enquiries in the future can be made directly by members of the public to 0300 5008080 so it can be logged and passed to the appropriate officer in the first instance.
VIA East Midlands are partners for the County Council in providing sustainable highway services in Nottinghamshire.
7)   Kimberley Farmers Market – should it return?
Many of you may remember the Farmers Market in Kimberley that used to be held on the first Saturday of the month on Toll Bar Square.  It ran for a number of years, before being taken over by a different organisation who are sadly now not in existence.
The Farmers Market started off really strongly and was originally very successful, it was also a good place to meet up with people and talk – see the photo below from
1 October 2011 – eight years ago!
As time went on however a number of problems arose and obstacles were put it in our way.
However I’ve now had a number of people enquire about whether the Farmers Market could return in some form.  
So I’d like to put the question out there: – is this something you are particularly interested in and would like to see again regularly in Kimberley again?  Do you think it would benefit the local area?  Please do come back to me with thoughts, suggestions and comments.
8)   Bennerley Viaduct – scheduled to be restored and re-opened summer 2020 – can you help though this month?  See below.
Planning consent was given in July this year for Bennerley Viaduct to be reopened.  It’s a very exciting year ahead for all those associated with this project.  The group Friends of Bennerley Viaduct (FBV) have done a brilliant job.

Tenders have been put out and contractors are currently being appointed.  Work should commence in early November.  Restoring and reopening the viaduct will be another historic milestone in the viaduct’s rich history.

A  project which involves a grade 2* listed  structure and protected wildlife will inevitably have a level of complexity.  The planning authorities have attached conditions to the project, some of which have to be met prior to the commencement of the work.  Help from volunteers is needed with one of the conditions which involves ensuring that the newts and reptiles are protected when the repair works to the pier bases are carried out. 

Beating the October 31 Deadline – A Deal for the Newts

The Great Crested Newts of Bennerley Viaduct have secured a deal (in the form of a planning condition) but it must be implemented by October 31st.   It’s exceptionally fortunate to have thousands of Great Crested Newts living around the viaduct. The newts are protected species. They breed in the settlement ponds in front of the structure but for most of the year, they hide under things and in crevices. The crumbling brickwork of the pier bases provide perfect newt shelters, so the intention to restore the bases is bad news from a newt perspective. 

It is important therefore to ensure that when removing all the crumbling brickwork, there are suitable shelters for them to be relocated to.  FBV still want them to have secure residency and settled status under the viaduct so they will be creating hibernaculae (bespoke newt shelters) on their next workdays under the supervision of a licensed ecologist.  They have a newt license, valid until October 31 to relocate the newts.  T his Oct 31 deadline cannot be extended.

October’s volunteer workday arrangements have therefore been changed and extended to enable the newts to be relocated.

 There will be four workdays in October. These will take place at the following dates and times.

  • Wednesday 23 Oct – Pier bases -Newt relocation
  • Thursday 24 Oct  – Pier Bases – Newt Relocation
  • Friday 25 Oct – Pier Bases –       Newt Relocation
  • Saturday 26 Oct – Pier bases –  Newt relocation

This work will involve the following.

  • Removing loose brickwork (strenuous)
  • Stacking and cleaning loose brickwork, (Moderate)
  • Digging out pathways around pier bases, Strenuous
  • Constructing  6 hibernacula  (Moderate)
  • Clearing all debris from pier bases.
  • Making all surfaces sound ready for contractors.
  • Clearing all vegetation from around the pier bases.

9)   The Ruislip Close wall, & traffic issues along Eastwood Road, Maws Lane and Hardy Street, Kimberley
I have reported on these separate issues often in the past. 
This year for example I’ve put a lot of work into trying to get some proper improvements on various matters for people who live in properties around Ruislip Close.  In July I met again with a number of residents who live in the Bassett Close, Ruislip Close area of Kimberley who clearly have long term issues they want resolving.
I met with the County Council in August to discuss various highways issues in Kimberley.
I am currently awaiting a response from the County Council and on receipt of more information I will let you know.
10  Cinema at Giltbrook Retail Park (GRP)
At the recent borough council elections in my election manifesto (see leaflet at 4 above) – I made a clear commitment to promoting leisure opportunities in the area. 
Several years ago I undertook a survey to find out local support for a cinema at GRP: – this demonstrated phenomenal public support.
On 17 July I met with the owners of owners of GRP to see what the latest position about the cinema is.  Originally it was planned to have a cinema in place by 2022, however various business priorities on the retail park have been subject to a few changes.
I am now undertaking further background work to see what now is a practical way to move forward to this project.  It may well take a few months, but I’m on the case again with seeing how we can actually make a cinema work here with a number of partners.   I wish these things could be achieved much quicker, and there’s lots challenges, but I’m in this for the long-term and I’ll come back when there is something concrete to report.
11)  New Young Children’s Play Area Knowle Park, Kimberley

This scheme is currently in progress and due to open in mid-October. The new area will be fenced with items of play equipment specifically for younger children.

The area will have rubber surfacing and self-closing gates to keep dogs out. Whilst the works are in progress the rest of the play area remains open for use.

The total project cost is just over £32,000 with £25,300 from Broxtowe Borough Council as part of The Pride in Parks Initiative and the balance of the funding from Kimberley Town Council.

12)    News in brief
a) Footpath improvement (KP35) – Broomhill Road to Chapter Drive, Kimberley – I am liaising with Broxtowe Borough Council and Nottinghamshire County Council with a view to securing funding for improvements and resurfacing of this footpath.  This follows on from requests I received from residents earlier this year to try and address various issues here.  The information I have received so far is that subject to the appropriate funding, the work here could be completed after April next year (2020) – with a report planned to be heard by appropriate committee at County Hall West Bridgford for consideration during the next six weeks.  Hopefully approval will then be granted so the work can be started within the timescales mentioned above.
b) Nottinghamshire County Council have carried out road resurfacing recently in two areas of Kimberley – the top of Swingate and also around Beverley Drive.
c) The City of Nottingham & Nottinghamshire Economic Prosperity Committee Nottingham City Council  – I am Broxtowe Borough Council’s representative on this committee.  It’s purpose can be found at the following link:

13)   Suggested reading

From time to time I find articles that may be of interest that I thought I would share.  It does not mean I necessarily agree with everything that’s written, but there are thought provoking themes and useful information contained in the links below:

Brexit – deal or no deal

If you want some real light bed time reading, try this:  As the possibility of the UK leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement – or ‘deal’ – has become more likely, the commentary on and analysis of a no-deal scenario have increased. This paper provides links to a selection of 2019 publications on a no-deal exit from the EU by private sector organisations, think tanks, research institutes and other academic institutions.


The UK is one of the most unequal countries in the developed world, and income inequality is rife – it does not have to be this way:
