 Broxtowe News Update & Information November 2019
 
 
1)   Business networking – boosting the high street: local shops and businesses in Kimberley
 
At the elections in May this year I made a clear commitment to trying to help boost trade in and around the area.
 
I’m pleased to say that we have a further business networking event for all local businesses and interested people in Kimberley.  This is to take place on
Wednesday 27 November – 5 30pm to 7 30pm at The Dog House pub 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: https://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/celebrate/find-a-venue/the-chapel-on-the-hill
 
The networking sessions allow established and new businesses to meet together, share experiences, problems, opportunities and good practice.

2)  Giltbrook Retail Park (GRP)
 
I reported in my last newsletter that a  major British multinational retailer is due to open on GRP in 2020 – next year.
More information can be found at both links below:
 
 
and the original planning application is shown here:
 
 On receipt of confirmation of a date of opening of a new store I will let you know. 
 
 
3)  The Rain or Shine Theatre Company
 
A performance of The Wind in the Willows will take place at Holy Trinity Church, Eastwood Road, Kimberley, NG16 2HX on Monday 30 December at 4pm.
I’m told that this particular theatre company is brilliant, and I am certainly hoping to get along.

4)   Thursday 12 December 2019

It’s my daughter Laura’s birthday on 12 December – you are probably not already aware of that.  I am sure however it will not have escaped your notice that this is also the date for the next General Election (so much for that Fixed Term Parliament Act that originally would have taken us to 2022).  By 12 December this year, we will have had three general elections since 2015.
 
I’m going to devote my the majority of my next newsletter in December to the General Election, who’s standing locally, Brexit, what the key policies of the different parties are on the major domestic issues.  Also I’ll look at the recent election results – and ask whether they are a good guide to what the outcome of 12 December will be.
 
For me personally  – many of you will know that I am no longer a member of any political party – having resigned from Labour earlier this year:
 
A number of people have asked whether I would stand in Broxtowe in December (as an Independent).  I’ve declined on this occasion for a number of reasons.  There will be another occasion for me in the future – I would not at all be surprised if there is indeed yet another General Election next year.  
 
For now there’s some important information on deadlines for postal votes and registering to vote – this is how it affects residents in Broxtowe:
 
Please don’t forget that because this election is going to be held during the Winter (and on 12 December 2019) it may well be dark from mid afternoon onwards, you may want to register for a Postal Vote (if you do not have one already).
 
a) The deadline for new applications to vote by post or to change existing postal or proxy arrangements e.g. cancellation or re-direction etc must reach the Electoral Registration Officer at Beeston by 5pm on Tuesday, 26 November 2019.
 
b) New applications to vote by proxy must be received by the Electoral Registration Officer by 5pm on Wednesday, 4 December 2019.
 
c) If you are not yet registered to vote you must do this by Tuesday 26 November 2019.
 
For more informaton please see:
 
 
In Broxtowe you can chose from one of 7 candidates:
 
MILITANT ELVIS: David Bishop
GRN: Kat Boettge
ENG DEM: Amy Dalla Mura
CON: Darren Henry
IND: Teck Khong
LAB: Greg Marshall
TIGFC: Anna Soubry
 
 
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.
 
 
 
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 recently 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 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)   Tree & Vegetation Management works A610 Kimberley
 
VIAEM (for Nottinghamshire County Council) are responsible for management of all trees, hedges and shrubs growing within the adopted highway. 
A scheme is due to start on 18 November for two weeks (between 8pm and 4am) whereby harzardous trees will be removed, crown lift trees to make clear the carriageway for high sided vehicles and to make clear the highway grass verge for annual mowing.
 
This work may well affect residents living in and around Swingate, Kimberley – especially around Angus Close.
 
If anyone has any questions they can get in touch with:
Kelly Douglas
Environmental Works Coordinator
Highways VIAEastMids (VIAEM)
0115 9773034
kelly.douglas@viaem.co.uk 
 
 
8)   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.
 
Whilst there is a current impasse with a section of Nottinghamshire County Council (blocking engagement with Borough Cllrs), I am hoping that there will be some  improvements and breakthrough in this next year.  If anyone wants more informaton on this please get in touch.  When there is finally a resolution I will let you know.
 
 
9)  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: https://richardsrobinson.org.uk/work-in-broxtowe/cinema-project-2013-giltbrook-retail-park/ – 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.
 
10)   Education Appeal Panel Members Needed
 

Nottinghamshire County Council are looking for people who are interested in supporting children’s education and can spare at least 10 days a year to serve as an Education Appeal Panel member.  If a child is refused a place at a school, they are entitled to an appeal against that decision through an independent appeals panel.

These panels are made up of volunteers who bring a range of experience, skills and views to the role. Panel members don’t need to have any legal qualifications  and they don’t always need a formal background in education. T raining is provided.  Applications need to be submitted by 22 November 2019.  For more informaton please see: 

11)    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) Christmas light switch on in Kimberley (organised by Kimberley Town Council) this takes place on Friday 29 November, starting at 6pm with a children’s dance and singing group at Hold Trinity Church.  There are then further activities at Toll Bar Sqaure until 7pm when the lights will be officially switched on.  There will be plenty of stalls both in the parish hall and at Toll Bar Square – for more information please contact Kimberley Town Council: http://www.kimberley-tc.gov.uk/
 
c) Stapleford Christmas light switch on is Saturday 23 November – taking place from 430pm – 630pm, you can expect to be delighted with festivities in Walter Parker VC Memorial Square, Victoria Street and within Victoria Street car park.
 
d) Eastwood Christmas Lights Switch On event taking place on Tuesday 26 November along Nottingham Road, Eastwood from 6-8pm.
 

e) Beeston Christmas Light Switch On event (sponsored by Arnold Clark Nottingham), is due to take place on Saturday 30 November from 430pm – 630pm  around Beeston Square and Foster Avenue.

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.
