 Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – January 2021 edition
 
 
  • COVID-19 UPDATE
  • New defibrillator provision for Kimberley
  • Request for provision of new pedestrian pathway between new industrial site Panattoni Park (Amazon & Hermes), Eastwood, Nottingham NG16 3UA 
  • Footpath from Broomhill Road through to Chapter Drive, Kimberley
  • Business grants in Broxtowe
  • Various highway related issues

 

1. COVID-19 Update 

One of the most frequent questions I have been asked over the past few weeks surrounds why there is currently no Vaccination Centre in Broxtowe.

I am not happy with lack of provision in the borough particularly bearing in mind the numbers of elderly who are having to travel some distance for their vaccinations.

For example one Kimberley resident told me on Wednesday this week, that he took his 80 year old neighbour to Gamston for her vaccination (by public transport and uber), which took several hours altogether.  This was fantastic act of goodwill by a good neighbour – however it is not acceptable that people should have to travel this far.  Not everyone has neighbours who are able to help out in a similar manner.

I have contacted Nottinghamshire Clinicial Commissioning Group (NCCG) and asked them to urgently look at Vaccination Centre provision in Broxtowe.  I have suggested that Kimberley Leisure Centre be considered as a venue.  When I have more information I will let you know.

Some of the most up to date key information surrounding the current vaccination programme is from NCCG is shown immediately below, and I have also added the  he latest COVID rates for Nottinghamshire:

 

·       Over 75s and 80s can book their vaccine now

·       Over 70s will be receiving an invitation letter from yesterday (28 January) inviting them for a vaccine

·       Please don’t contact the NHS to seek a vaccine, we will send out a letter inviting individuals to book an appointment

·       When you receive your letter, please act quickly to book your appointment

·       Please continue to follow all the guidance to stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives 

 

NCCG are currently asking for all over 75s and over 80s to book their appointments. They will have details of how to do this in their invitation letter.

Letters to the 70-74 cohort have been dispatched and we will open the booking system to include this age group from yesterday Thursday 28 January.

Please urge relatives, members of the public, friends and family who fit into these priority cohorts to book by using the appropriate web link (below) or by calling

0115 883 4640.

 

Covid-19 Vaccination Letters

Two types of letters are being sent out to those who are eligible – one from the local NHS and one from the NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service.

The local letter – sent out by  NCCG – will direct patients to Local Vaccination Services.  In Nottingham and Nottinghamshire there are now seven Local Vaccination Services offering vaccinations to the public alongside three Hospital Hubs. 

The national letter – from the NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service – will give the public the option of having the vaccine at a large Vaccination Centre, or potentially a community pharmacy depending on whether these are available locally.

It is important to note that the public will only receive a letter from the national NHS Covid-19 Vaccination Booking Service if they live within 30-45 minutes drive of one of these sites. Therefore, very few Nottinghamshire residents will have received one of these letters previously. However, now we have a large site in our patch we expect more people to receive these letters which has the potential to cause some confusion. Please see attached a simple graphic that you can use to explain the difference between the two types of letters.

Care Homes and the Housebound

The Covid-19 vaccination programme in care homes is successfully underway across the county and city.  Nearly all older persons care homes have now received the vaccine and the few that haven’t have been due to clinical reasons. Over the weekend GPs from a number of practices supported this collaborative work in a final push to vaccinate and protect our most vulnerable as quickly as possible.

The national directive is that we start to vaccinate homes for those with Learning Disabilities after 15 February, unless residents have specifically been flagged as Clinically Extremely Vulnerable which puts them in Cohort 4.  Our roving team and GPs are ready to start the process for Learning Disability homes in line with the national timetable.  

The NHS is contacting those who are housebound by letter. This letter, which has been dispatched, will have details on how they can receive a Covid-19 vaccine. Our dedicated ‘roving team’ will be delivering the vaccinations. Please find latest information on this service, including a detailed FAQ here

Pharmacies

This week we will see our first pharmacy go live in a positive step forward for our county.  NCCG are working with NHS England and Improvement to support the roll out of the Covid-19 vaccination programme in more pharmacies across the city and county.  More details will be available and duly updated in the coming weeks.

2.  New defibrillator provision for Kimberley

An application for grant aid made by Kimberley Town Council towards the purchase of a new defibrillator to be installed in a reconditioned former telephone kiosk and located in the Kimberley area, was considered by the Finance and Resources Committee at Broxtowe Borough Council on 7 January 2021.

A grant of up to £1,200 was duly awarded to this extent.

More information is available from Martin Paine, Chief Audit and Control Officer Broxtowe Borough Council – grantaid@broxtowe.gov.uk

 

 

3.  Request for Provision of new pedestrian pathway between new industrial site Panattoni Park (Amazon & Hermes) Nottingham NG16 3UA, & Eastwood

 

I have been approached by a number of people living locally who are concerned about the lack of footpath for people working at the new industrial site (on the A610) just after Eastwood going towards Langley Mill & Ripley (where new the little roundabout is).  A number of workers on the site (home to Amazon and Hermes) walk to and from Eastwood Town Centre (and further afield) and to do that they have to walk alongside the very busy A610.

The information that Nottinghamshire County Council (VIAem) has provided indicates that a Feasibility Study was carried out which concluded that the cost of providing a footway would be extremely high (around £350,000). The added complication is that the A610 north of the brook is owned and managed by Derbyshire County Council.

Further enquiries are being undertaken to find out what possibly can be done to make the area safer for pedestrians.

This matter has been raised with Lee Anderson MP for Eastwood & Ashfield – lee.anderson.mp@parliament.uk – & also County Councillor Alex Stevenson (Greator Heanor) – stevenson93@msn.com 

If anyone needs any more information please let me know.

 

4.   Footpath from Broomhill Road through to Chapter Drive, Kimberley

Thank you to everyone who’s got in touch about the newly resurfaced foopath – completed before Christmas.  Seems to have had a positive impact all around.

5.    Business grants – COVID19
This month Broxtowe Borough Council has thus far made business grants payments to 800 businesses throughout the borough including 59 of those in the Kimberley area.  More information on business support in Broxtowe is available at: https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/for-you/crime-safety-emergencies/coronavirus-covid-19/support-for-businesses/#apply 
 
 
6.   Various highway related matters 
 
  • There seem to be intermittent problems with bin collections due to parking on Noel Street.  Anyone affected – please let me know.
  • Bellway Homes Limited – finally – after several months of trying – Bellway Homes (BH) have accepted land ownership of problem fencing and overgrown shrubbery affecting residents near Hillcrest Close, Kimberley.  They have promised to come back to me on what action they are prepared to take to improve matters.
  • Potholes – High Street, near Dale Road and Leslie Avenue Kimberley- I have contacted Nottinghamshire County Council this week regarding the state of road and the number of potholes in this area and have asked for resurfacing to be undertaken.  When there is more information I will let you know.IMG_7156

 

  • Parking problems – junction of Valley Road and Awsworth Lane Kimberley – I have received a request from local residents for white lines in this area.  There have been problems recently with cars parking over tactiles.  I have made contact with Nottinghamshire County Council.  When there is more information I will let you know.

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 – November and December edition

Hi all

Trust you are keeping well, still in these continuing very challenging times.

Can I take this opportunity to wish you all a restful Christmas and healthy New Year.

Thanks to everyone who has been in touch over the past few weeks – there’s a wide variety of matters to report on, and it’s been crazily busy of late, so much so that I simply ran out of time in November to issue a newsletter so this is a combined one covering the last two months.  I’ve been dealing for example with a large amount of planning applications, appeals, disputes and complaints, all of which can be quite time consuming.

However I am approaching 2021 with an optimistic mind set, looking forward to plenty of new challenges, as well as trying to work through some long standing problems in Kimberley and nearby on traffic flow, together with a major campaign to regenerate and boost local business – not just in Kimberley town centre, but at the outskirts too.

Feedback is always welcome and if ever you need help with anything, please let me know.

Together, we can and will get through this COVID-19 pandemic.

Best regards

 

Richard

 Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – November and December edition 
 
 
  • COVID-19 UPDATE
  • Footpath from Broomhill Road through to Chapter Drive, Kimberley
  • Request for Provision of new pedestrian pathway between new industrial site Panattoni, Park, Nottingham NG16 3UA – & Eastwood
  • Langley Mill Super Hub (incorporating Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood, & into Amber Valley
  • New market in Kimberley March 2021
  • Various highway related issues

 

1. COVID-19 Update 

It has been announced earlier today that the whole of Nottinghamshire remains under Tier 3 restrictions.

Current guidance on what can and can’t be done in this tier and covering the Christmas period next week is shown here: https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/for-you/crime-safety-emergencies/coronavirus-covid-19/

To give you some idea of the sheer scale of work undertaken by Broxtowe Borough Council regarding supporting local businesses I am enclosing a report from Full Council last night – click on: Leader’s Report Council 16 December 2020 (1) which proves an extremely interesting read. 

If anyone has any questions or comments please let me know.

 

2.  Footpath from Broomhill Road through to Chapter Drive, Kimberley

After 18 months of site visits, meetings & numerous emails – the footpath resurfacing between Broomhill Road & Chapter Drive Kimberley has been completed last week. Not quite has hard going as the Brexit negotiations, although it felt like it at times. A good job done hopefully!  Thank you to local residents who originally got in touch about this.  I should pay a big tribute Helen Spencer at VIAEM (Nottinghamshire County Council) who supervised this project and did a brilliant job.131204958_10159137909183969_6027584951368754766_n 131391212_10159137909103969_7655381284582672272_n

 

 

3. Request for Provision of new pedestrian pathway between new industrial site Panattoni, Park, Nottingham NG16 3UA – & Eastwood

I have been approached by a number of people living locally who are concerned about the lack of footpath for people working at the new industrial site (on the A610) just after Eastwood going towards Langley Mill & Ripley (where new the little roundabout is).  A number of workers on the site walk to and from Eastwood Town Centre (and further afield) and to do that they have to walk alongside the very busy A610.

The information that Nottinghamshire County Council (VIAem) has provided indicates that a Feasibility Study was carried out which concluded that the cost of providing a footway would be extremely high (around £350,000). The added complication is that the A610 north of the brook is owned and managed by Derbyshire County Council.

Further enquiries are being undertaken to find out what possibly can be done to make the area safer for pedestrians.

If anyone needs any more information please get in touch.

 

4)   Langley Mill Super Hub (incorporating Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood, & into Amber Valley)

 

A  (virtual) meeting took place on Friday 30 October with Nottingham City Council, senior officers and cllrs from Broxtowe meeting to discuss (then as we anticipated) the next steps in this project with regards to tram extension from Phoenix Park.  Following on from the meeting we are now planning to work together with a Economic and Transport Consultant, alongside Nottingham City Council in order to make the strongest case possible for significant investment in the Kimberley, Eastwood Langley Mill area in terms of improving public transport links.

We were all set to launch a further in depth Feasibility Study and environmental and economic assessment in January next month.
 
This week though we have received a major set back with our plans.  One of the biggest body blows during the past 11 years this campaign has been running.
You may have seen on the news reports indicating that the proposed Hs2 station at Toton will be recommended to be scrapped, with termination at East Midlands Parkway.  Thousands of additional jobs which were expected in the East Midlands and the transformation of rail connections between East Midlands, Birmingham, Leeds, the North East and Scotland are all in jeopardy.
 
For us locally in Kimberley, Eastwood (areas that always miss out from major investment) – this means that the plans to link in the tram extension from Phoenix Park, through Kimberley and Eastwood to Langley Mill (with then a fast train link to Hs2 at Toton) are at risk.  So much of the work that has been put in thus far has centred around attracting the £165m needed for the tram extension – to fit in with the Hs2 station at Toton, via the Langley Mill transport exchange and super hub.  
 
As I mention above I’ve been battling for this for last 11 years.  I’ve lost count of the number of hours put in – early morning and late at night, writing reports, meeting with MPs, talking with constituents.  We’ve had many ups and down, some mistakes have been made along the way, but I can’t conceal the fact that it looks like a mountain to climb now, in order to realise the aim – huge improvement in public transport, major investment and jobs, growth and the environment affecting Kimberley, Eastwood and the surrounding areas.
 
Only last month I had a request from a resident of Kimberley who is taking his final engineering degree at Nottingham Trent University to talk through the project with him.  He is doing his finals and basing his dissertation on the tram extension.  We will need some creative and ambitious ideas now!
 
Is this as one might call it the End of the Line – so to speak?  Many of you would have never even dreamt of me writing these words!
Well we will find out definitely (I say definitely – according to the latest government announcement) in February next year, when the “final” decision on Hs2 will be made.  I have written yesterday to the Treasury, Secretary of State for Transport and Broxtowe’s MP Darren Henry, urging the government to not accept the recommendation to scrap Hs2 at Toton and the whole Eastern Leg.
 
I certainly have not given up the fight at this point, however – should Hs2 at Toton and the Eastern Leg be scrapped we will need some very creative ideas how to improve public transport locally!
 
I accept that Hs2 is probably seen to be as controversial as Brexit!  What has not been appreciated in my opinion is how important Hs2 was to the whole of Broxtowe (not just the south), there are huge benefits for us in the northern part, and also of course into Amber Valley & Ashfield.
 
Views, comments, feedback and questions, very welcome!
   
 
 

5)   New market in Kimberley

 

I’ve reported in previous newsletters that we are planning to have a new market in Kimberley – hopefully from March next year.  The sites we are looking at is near the chippy and Miners Return on Eastwood Road and Toll Bar Square.

Broxtowe Borough Council has a new markets officer looking to stimulate activity – Clair Storey, and she is investigating what stall holders will be available to come.

I’ll report more information in due course.  Any questions in the meantime, please let me know.

 

6.   Various highway related matters – Kimberley

  • Problem with bin emptying Noel Street.  There seem to be intermittent problems with bin collections due to parking on Noel Street.  This is something I intend looking at in 2021.  Anyone affected – please let me know.
  • Broxtowe Avenue (area), Kimberley have had their roads resurfaced recently.
  • I am currently awaiting a response on various highway related matters including resurfacing of Ruislip Close car park, and the scrap metal vans on Gilt Hill.
  • Faulty lighting on Maws Lane, Kimberley has been fixed!
  • Bellway Homes Limited – finally – after several months of trying – Bellway Homes (BH) have accepted land ownership of problem fencing and overgrown shrubbery affecting residents near Hillcrest Close, Kimberley.  They have promised to come back to me on what action they are prepared to take to improve matters.
  • Dog fouling – Hardy Street, Kimberley – following requests from local residents I have asked Broxtowe’s Neighbourhood Wardens to inspect this area more regularly.  If you notice any problems please let me know.

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.

Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – October edition

Hi all

Trust you are keeping well, still in these continuing very challenging times.

Thanks to everyone who has been in touch over the past few weeks – there’s a wide variety of matters to report on, and it’s been crazily busy of late – so straight down to business.

A good deal of my work locally is on hold or being delayed due to COVID, however I’m trying to make progress wherever is practically possible.  I’m aware that I’ve still got some enquiries to come back on from some of you on a range of issues including parking, bins and vehicles obstructing the highway.  I’ll get onto these asap.

Feedback is always welcome and if ever you need help with anything, please let me know.

Together, we can and will get through this COVID-19 pandemic.

Best regards

 

Richard

 Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – October edition 
 
 
  • COVID-19 UPDATE
  • Western Power Distribution
  • Kimberley Leisure Centre
  • Request for Provision of new pedestrian pathway between new industrial site Panattoni, Park, Nottingham NG16 3UA – & Eastwood
  • Langley Mill Super Hub (incorporating Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood, & into Amber Valley
  • Various highway related issues
  • Remembrance Day

 

1. COVID-19 Update 

Earlier this week Broxtowe Council was promised a comprehensive set of specific guidance for local business support and also rules for residents with Nottinghamshire going into the very highest tier of restrictions. It has been delayed on several occasions due to the confusion surrounding what parts of Nottinghamshire were going into this, and when from (as I write the information has still not been received) – safe to say we are all in Nottinghamshire in the higher tier from one minute from midnight Friday this week.  I have taken lots of messages from local business on what they can and can’t do and what support is available. As soon as I have it – I will send the information out.

For now some of the best information on a wide range of subjects including hospitality, what constitutes a support bubble, what constitutes a main meal in a cafe etc are available at the following links: 

https://www.local.gov.uk/our-support/coronavirus-information-councils/covid-19-service-information – see also: Tier 3 guidance note (1)

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

https://www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/

https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus 

If anyone has any questions please let me know and I will endeavour to find out the correct answers.

 

2.   Western Power Distribution

Following on from the major disruption in and around Swingate and Greens Lane last Christmas, Western Power were due to undertake further major roadworks in Kimberley (the post office) during the summer (replacement of underground pipes). This has now been postponed until Spring next year.

Please let me know if you require further information.

3.  Kimberley Leisure Centre
I attended a recent meeting of the Leisure Strategy Task and Finish Group (Broxtowe Borough Council).  The council’s negotiations with EMET/Kimberley School are progressing well, and Broxtowe BC hope to agree a new Community Use Agreement within the next couple of months.

When there is more publicly available information I will let you know.

 

4. Request for Provision of new pedestrian pathway between new industrial site Panattoni, Park, Nottingham NG16 3UA – & Eastwood

I have been approached by a number of people living locally who are concerned about the lack of footpath for people working at the new industrial site (on the A610) just after Eastwood going towards Langley Mill & Ripley (where new the little roundabout is).  A number of workers on the site walk to and from Eastwood Town Centre (and further afield) and to do that they have to walk alongside the very busy A610.

The information that Nottinghamshire County Council (VIAem) has provided indicates that a Feasibility Study was carried out which concluded that the cost of providing a footway would be extremely high (around £350,000). The added complication is that the A610 north of the brook is owned and managed by Derbyshire County Council.

Further enquiries are being undertaken to find out what possibly can be done to make the area safer for pedestrians.

If anyone needs any more information please get in touch.

 

5)   Langley Mill Super Hub (incorporating Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood, & into Amber Valley) – A further (virtual) meeting took place today Friday 30 October with Nottingham City Council, senior officers and cllrs from Broxtowe meeting to discuss the next steps in this project with regards to tram extension from Phoenix Park.  Following on from the meeting we are now planning to work together with a Economic and Transport Consultant, alongside Nottingham City Council in order to make the strongest case possible for significant investment in the Kimberley, Eastwood Langley Mill area in terms of improving public transport links.

We are continually making the point that with regards to HS2 – it is absolutely imperative that the forgotten parts of Broxtowe ie Kimberley and Awsworth  (and indeed places like Ashfield and Amber Valley) do not get left behind further, whilst all the major infrastructure investment goes to the south of the borough of Broxtowe – in and around Toton.
 
We are demonstrating how from this area – the north of Broxtowe, and with the New Super Hub in Langley Mill – connection could be made to the new HS2 station in Toton in less than seven minutes: PDFReport A-240718
 
I’ve now released within the link below detailed new documents (aLangley Mill Hub 07 02 19 draft 2 doc) click on link in first paragraph:     
Nottingham City Council have agreed to work alongside Broxtowe Borough Council, who will in turn commission an in depth Feasibility Study, looking at the economic case, final route, environmental assessment and benefits, links to other public transport initiatives and so on. 
 
The Feasibility Study (FS) will be undertaken in conjunction with Amber Valley Borough Council.  The Feasibility Study was originally due to commence before 31 December this year and will then then take six months to complete.  The actual date of the commencement of the FS should be clarified at the meeting on 30 October (as above) – taking into account upon a number of factors including how the COVID-19 pandemic pans out during the next few weeks.  
 
The MP for Ashfield – Lee Anderson has agreed to discuss in detail how the tram extension could specifically be of benefit to Eastwood.
 
Any questions, as ever please get in touch.

 

6.   Various highway related matters – Kimberley

  • Orchard Street, Kimberley is shortly due to have its Residents Parking Scheme implemented.  To give you some indication of how long things in local government take to materialise, I raised this matter directly with the County Council in the summer of 2018.  Wheels don’t half turn slow in local government!
  • Broxtowe Avenue (area), Kimberley is due to have its roads resurfaced during November.
  • I am currently awaiting a response on various highway related matters including resurfacing of Ruislip Close car park, and the scrap metal vans on Gilt Hill.
  • I have reported to the County Council faulty lighting on Maws Lane, Kimberley

 

7.   Remembrance Day 

 

There will be no parade and services around the War Memorial in Kimberley this year.  For more information on what the Town Council is doing (virtually) please contact their Chairman Cllr Trevor Rood:

Hi all

Trust you are keeping well, still in these continuing very challenging times.

Thanks to everyone who has been in touch over the past few weeks – there’s a wide variety of matters to report on – so straight down to business.

Feedback is always welcome and if ever you need help with anything, please let me know.

Together, we can and will get through this COVID-19 pandemic.

Best regards

 Broxtowe News Update & Information Service – September edition 
 
 
  • Anti-social behaviour in Kimberley Town Centre
  • Langley Mill Super Hub (incorporating Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood, & into Amber Valley
  • Public wi-fi in Kimberley
  • Housing on former Kimberley brewery site and Nine Corners
  • A new outdoor market for Kimberley?
  • Various highway related issues

 

1. Anti-social behaviour – I reported in August that I had received lots of complaints surrounding incidents largely relating to the Queens Head Pub, Main Street in Kimberley.  Lots of work was undertaken behind the scenes and as many of you will now be aware this establishment is currently closed.

A Direction was served on Friday afternoon, 25 September, under Coronavirus regulations on the Queen’s Head preventing members of the public from entering the premises (which includes the land outside) from 6.00pm on 25 September. This is as a result of public health concerns and the action has been taken by the County Council (as the relevant authority for this legislation) following extensive discussions between officers of the district and county councils and the police. Evidence provided by officers of the district council, along with those of Nottinghamshire Police, has been key in securing the Direction. Reviews of the Direction will take place to ensure the public health concerns are addressed.      

More information is available from:

2)   Langley Mill Super Hub (incorporating Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood, & into Amber Valley) – A further (virtual) meeting is to take place on Friday 30 October with Nottingham City Council, senior officers and cllrs from Broxtowe to discuss the next steps in this project with regards to tram extension from Phoenix Park.  We will be looking at setting a date for an in depth Feasibility Study, economic and environment assessment – looking at a range of transport options covering Nuthall, Eastwood, Kimberley & Langley Mill.

We are continually making the point that with regards to HS2 – it is absolutely imperative that the forgotten parts of Broxtowe ie Kimberley and Awsworth  (and indeed places like Ashfield and Amber Valley) do not get left behind further, whilst all the major infrastructure investment goes to the south of the borough of Broxtowe – in and around Toton.
 
We are demonstrating how from this area – the north of Broxtowe, and with the New Super Hub in Langley Mill – connection could be made to the new HS2 station in Toton in less than seven minutes: PDFReport A-240718
 
I’ve now released within the link below detailed new documents (aLangley Mill Hub 07 02 19 draft 2 doc) click on link in first paragraph:     
Nottingham City Council have agreed to work alongside Broxtowe Borough Council, who will in turn commission an in depth Feasibility Study, looking at the economic case, final route, environmental assessment and benefits, links to other public transport initiatives and so on. 
 
The Feasibility Study (FS) will be undertaken in conjunction with Amber Valley Borough Council.  The Feasibility Study was originally due to commence before 31 December this year and will then then take six months to complete.  The actual date of the commencement of the FS should be clarified at the meeting on 30 October (as above) – taking into account upon a number of factors including how the COVID-19 pandemic pans out during the next few weeks.  
 
The MP for Ashfield – Lee Anderson has agreed to discuss in detail how the tram extension could specifically be of benefit to Eastwood.
 
Any questions, as ever please get in touch.

 

 

3.   Public Wi-FI in Kimberley Town Centre – Free Wi-Fi should now be fully operational in Kimberley town centre. Many people around here suffer with poor or no phone signal, in a time when we use our phones to  check availability, pay for goods and now to check  into  venues internet access has never been more important. In addition, businesses have highlighted the limited phone signal means customers struggle to collect items using click and collect an invaluable resource to the modern high street. Free Wi-Fi will change this.

The  Wi-Fi will help support Kimberley as we look to navigate the high street through covid-19 and into a full recovery and we will be able to monitor this with GeoSense which gathers footfall data and dwell time, letting us know where we need to improve and what helps drive visitors into the town.
 
GEOSense
 
There is also a GEOSense system that has also been installed in Kimberley Town Centre.  GEOSense will allow the council to securely collect footfall data for Kimberley, using the same system which is also installed in Beeston, Eastwood and Stapleford. By using this system the council can now properly benchmark our town centres footfall results against each other, whereas before the Beeston footfall counting solution used a different system, method for counting etc – so fair comparisons couldn’t be made.
 
There are two counting points:
 
·         Bottom of steps up to Greens Lane shopping precinct from Main street 
·         On the junction on main street, James Street, Newdigate Street; outside The Gate Inn.

More information is also available from Luke Cairney Town Centre & Regeneration Officer Broxtowe Borough Council – luke.cairney@broxtowe.gov.uk 

 

4.   Housing on former Kimberley brewery site and Nine Corners – a number of people have asked what exactly what the position i with development and building.

The latest information I have received, on the number of properties still to be built is as follows:

10 new townhouses
2 kiln store cottages
8 Kilns apartments
1 Maltings apartment
7 old offices apartments
4 tower apartments
55 new homes at Nine Corners

 

The developers – Fairgrove have experienced a number of issues with getting various conditions approved (Nine Corners), funding finalised for other properties (Help to buy) and other various delays due to COVID-19.

If anyone needs further information you can drop me a line, or contact directly:

Steve Midgley

Managing Director
Fairgrove Group of Companies
t: 0115 944 6700

 

5.   A new outdoor market for Kimberley?

Last night the Personnel Committee at Broxtowe BC debated the merits of appointing a Markets Officer for the borough, see item  7: https://democracy.broxtowe.gov.uk/documents/g498/Public%20reports%20pack%20Tuesday%2029-Sep-2020%2019.00%20Personnel%20Committee.pdf?T=10

I am very pleased to report that the item was passed.  I have already received enquiries regarding how and where we could operate a new market in Kimberley, maybe in a new location to that we held previously on Toll Bar Square.

I am meeting (virtually) with the Business Growth Manager for Broxtowe tomorrow, as I want to make sure we can try and hit the ground running on this, as I would like to (COVID permitting) see this up and running next year.

If anyone would like further information you can drop me a line or contact:

6.   Various highway related matters – Kimberley

 

I am currently awaiting a response on various highway related matters including resurfacing of Ruislip Close car park, and the scrap metal vans on Gilt Hill.

I’m also in touch with Western Power as they were due to undertake major road works in Kimberley in July/August – see item 2: https://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2020/01/broxtowe-news-update-information-january-2020/

I was informed last month that the work had inevitably been delayed to COVID-19. 
 
I’ll report back on all these highway issues (and others) in October’s newsletter.

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 – August edition

Hi all

Trust you are keeping well, still in these continuing very challenging times.

Thanks to everyone who has been in touch over the past few weeks – there’s a wide variety of matters to report on – so straight down to business.

Feedback is always welcome and if ever you need help with anything, please let me know.

Together, we can and will get through this COVID-19 pandemic.

Best regards

 Broxtowe News Update & Information – August edition 
 
 
  • Anti-social behaviour in Kimberley Town Centre
  • Public wi fi in Kimberley
  • Additional Christmas lights in Kimberley
  • Scrap Metal van on Gilthill
  • Housing improvements – Ruislip Close and Bassett Close Kimberley
  • Miscellaneous – residents suggestions for Kimberley ie Boxing Club, various highways and traffic related matters, possible return of a monthly market 
  • Langley Mill Super Hub
  • New Town Fund Eastwood

 

1. Anti-social behaviour – I have received many complaints from local residents living near the town centre during the past few weeks – largely concerning incidents relating to the Queens Head Pub, Main Street. On Tuesday this week I had a detailed conversation with the new Police Inspector for Eastwood & Kimberley Alison Bryan.  Since lockdown was lifted on 4 July the police informed the pub that they should serve drinks only in plastic cups and have door staff on at weekends.  These measures have only been partly followed by the pub.  The police are watching this position very carefully – they have regular patrols and will be looking to take stronger action during the next few weeks if problems continue.  If anyone experiences any problems please let me know.

 

2. Public Wi-FI in Kimberley Town Centre – the equipment required to run then public WiFi network has now been installed. All the issues around gaining access to the Library building and installing the primary internet connection which provides web access to the connected devices, have now been resolved.  The WiFi is technically on and is undergoing testing, to ensure the coverage and connection speeds are as per the Council’s agreement with Elephants WiFi.

There is also a GEOSense system that has also been installed in Kimberley Town Centre. GEOSense will allow the council to securely collect footfall data for Kimberley, using the same system which is also installed in Beeston, Eastwood and Stapleford.  By using this system we can now properly benchmark our town centres footfall results against each other, whereas before the Beeston footfall counting solution used a different system, method for counting etc – so fair comparisons couldn’t be made.

There are two counting points:

  • Bottom of steps up to greens lane shopping precinct from Main Street
  • On the junction on Main Street, James Street, Newdigate street; outside the Gate Inn.

The GEOSensors essentially count the MAC addresses from mobile phone devices as people pass through the counting zones. This isn’t affected by the phone signal being poor (as it is in Kimberley) and is pretty accurate, as most people now have a mobile phone with them. There are also algorithms to remove double counting and counting from those passing in cars and busses. The data is fully anonymised.

More information from Luke Cairney Town Centre & Regeneration Officer Broxtowe Borough Council – luke.cairney@broxtowe.gov.uk 

 

3. Additional Christmas lights in Kimberley – between Maws Lane and the Miners Return – this area will have Christmas lights this year.  This was asked for last year, and the bid was unsuccessful, however I am pleased that residents in this area will see some illumination over November/December 2020.

 

4. Scrap Metal Vans – Gilthill – I have received many complaints during the past year or so about this matter. The parking by the vans in this vicinity has served to add to the traffic congestion when leaving Kimberley and going towards IKEA and the A610.  Broxtowe Borough Council are now taking specific action now to try remedy these problems – more information available from Mrs Christine Danby – Senior Planning Enforcement Officer  –  christine.danby@broxtowe.gov.uk 

 

5. Housing improvements – Ruislip Close and Bassett Close, Kimberley – there are a number elderly and disabled residents who live in this area, apart from young families. I had a site meeting there this week to address some of the issues including disabled handrails, cutting back of weeds, disabled ramps, improvements in appearance for the area.  A number of actions are planned over the coming weeks.  I will keep you updated with progress.

 

6. Miscellaneous –  I have received a number of requests for local improvements and initiatives in Kimberley during the past six weeks – including the possibility of a new monthly market in Kimberley, a Boxing Club and various traffic and highway related matters. I will report on progress with these issues in subsequent meetings.  Relating to the possible new market in Kimberley – there is a meeting of the Jobs & Economy Committee at Broxtowe Borough Council on Thursday 3 September, that will decide on the post of a Markets Officer for the whole borough (this person would in turn help facilitate activity in Kimberley) – see:

https://democracy.broxtowe.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=149&MId=489&Ver=4 

Any questions in the meantime on any of the miscellaneous items and more information required – please get in touch.

 
7.  Langley Mill Super Hub – Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood, & into Amber Valley – a virtual meeting with Nottingham City Council, senior officers and cllrs at Broxtowe took place on Wednesday 29 July to discuss the next steps in this project with regards to tram extension from Phoenix Park.
 
We made a key point that with regards to HS2 – it is absolutely imperative that the forgotten parts of Broxtowe ie Kimberley and Awsworth  (and indeed places like Ashfield and Amber Valley) do not get left behind further, whilst all the major infrastructure investment goes to the south of the borough of Broxtowe – in and around Toton.
 
We demonstrated how from this area – the north of Broxtowe, and with the New Super Hub in Langley Mill – connection could be made to the new HS2 station in Toton in less than seven minutes: PDFReport A-240718
 
I’ve now released within the link below detailed new documents (aLangley Mill Hub 07 02 19 draft 2 doc) click on link in first paragraph:     
Nottingham City Council have agreed to work alongside Broxtowe Borough Council, who will in turn commission an in depth Feasibility Study, looking at the economic case, final route, environmental assessment and benefits, links to other public transport initiatives and so on.  The Feasibility Study (FS) will be undertaken in conjunction with Amber Valley Borough Council.  The Feasibility Study was originally due to take place by 31 December this year and will then then take six months to complete.  The actual date of the commencement of the FS is yet to be decided – dependent upon a number of factors including how the COVID-19 pandemic pans out during the next few weeks.  When there is more information I will let you know.
 
The MP for Ashfield – Lee Anderson has agreed to discuss in detail how the tram extension could specifically be of benefit to Eastwood.
 
8.  New Towns Fund, Eastwood – I was asked Cllr Milan Radulovic – Leader of Broxtowe Borough Council to arrange a meeting with Lee Anderson MP for Ashfield, to see what funding can particularly be reached for Eastwood. By way of background Eastwood has some of the highest childhood poverty rates in the East Midlands, in Eastwood St Marys ward childhood poverty rates are a staggering 34% and unemployment rates are also very high. The area of Eastwood also has some of the worst health statistics too as well as crime and premature deaths.

The aim is to get Eastwood included in the monetary allocations for the New Towns Fund https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/towns-fund-prospectus

The meeting between Milan & Lee took place on Thursday 23 July.  

Representations have now been made to the appropriate government minister to see how not only Eastwood, but places like Kimberley can also benefit from new funding rounds during the next year, to help regenerate and boost growth in the respective areas.

Broxtowe News Update & Information – June & July 2020 edition

Hi all

Trust you are keeping well, still in these very challenging times.

I wasn’t able to issue a newsletter in June, simply to the sheer volume of ongoing work I have – so this is a sort of bumper summer edition – covering both June and July.

You’ll notice below that I’ve reinstated the advertising for local businesses.  I’ve refrained from this since March, but as lockdown is gradually being lifted, I wanted to start promoting our local businesses again.

 Broxtowe News Update & Information – June & July 2020 edition 
   
 

1) Public wifi availability – Kimberley Town Centre

Before lockdown commenced a date was provisionally agreed for Monday 30 March 2020 for final installation and completion in Kimberley of all the technical equipment necessary for free wifi to operate in the town centre.

Due to COVID-19 the asbestos checks from ARC the contractor in this instance have had to be delayed during the last few months.  

I have subsequently chased this again today and asked to be informed of a new date this is taking place.

For more information on this please contact myself or Matthew Batterham – Town Centre Manager – Broxtowe – matthew.batterham@broxtowe.gov.uk 

 

2)  Broken fence – adjacent to Cloverlands Drive & Hillcrest Close, Kimberley

Last year I did an estate tour to look at some of the council properties with housing officers from Broxtowe Borough Council.  We came across a broken fence that was quite dangerous and protruding along a footpath that people regularly use to get through to Hillcrest Close.  It’s taken ages to try and find ownership of the land in question (so the fence can be repaired).  

We believe this now to be under the jurisdiction of Bellway Homes Limited.  

I have duly contacted them about this, and when I have more information I will let you know.

 

3) Kimberley Leisure Centre

I covered the background to this in great detail in my previous May newsletter at item 4: https://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2020/05/broxtowe-news-update-information-may-2020-edition/ 

Last month on 23 June an Extraordinary meeting of the Policy and Performance Committee Tuesday, 23 June 2020 was held virtually. The meeting was Chaired by Milan Radulovic – who is the Leader of the Council. The meeting was specifically called to deal the matter of the future of Leisure Services in Kimberley, following the notice of terminations of the joint use agreements at Kimberley School, from Chief Executive of the East Midlands Trust, on 23 April 2020.

I am not a member of the Policy & Performance committee, but attended (as I am entitled to do) as Ward member for Kimberley.

I have been asked over the past few weeks, why the papers presented at the meeting were confidential. This is because there were confidential items contained relating to staffing, personnel and budget matters.

Before the meeting Ellis Tansley – Vice Chair of Events at Kimberley Town Council gave me some useful feedback in terms of comments he had received from members of the public. I was able to use these at the meeting.

My comments made were not lengthy but focused mainly on the need to ensure that leisure provision is maintained, and to ensure that Kimberley does not get left behind.

The main outcome of the meeting (and this was unanimous) was that discussions would start promptly in terms of securing a long term future for leisure facilities in our area.

The Deputy Chief Executive of Broxtowe – Zulfiqar Darr, & the Leader of the Council Milan Radulovic & the Leader of the Opposition (Conservatives) will form the main negotiating group from Broxtowe BC. The East Mids Trust met Broxtowe representatives Friday 26 June.

As soon as more substantive public information is available, I will let you know.

 

4) Hall om Wong Park – Kimberley

Two years ago I was asked by a number of residents for various improvements to the play area, and I duly made the appropriate representations.

  • The play area has now been extended with new equipment and over fifty per cent of the area changed from a bark chip surface to a new rubber surface.  The new equipment includes a play unit specifically for toddlers. 
  • Work is also being being carried out involving surfacing paths and steps in the woodland at the top of the site. 
  • There will also be some new fencing and entrance gates along Eastwood Road.
  • Later this year the plan is to include volunteers planting woodland wildflowers and bluebells in the woodland.

For more information please let me know.

5) Backlog of work on various issues in Kimberley – delayed due to COVID-19
 
There’s a range of projects I have been working on that have inevitably been delayed due to the pandemic including negotiations on the cinema proposal at Giltbrook Retail Park, transport specifically for elderly people in north Broxtowe, possible return of Kimberley Farmers Market, demolition of a wall on Ruislip Close and a number of footpath issues in and around the area.
Again, now as lockdown is gradually easing, I’m starting to find out how these matters can be taken forward.  I’ll update you in August on each of these matters – it’s not easy at this point to say which projects will survive, as the landscape ahead is somewhat uncertain, however I’ll be doing my best to ensure real progress is made wherever possible.
 
Some of you have also been in touch over the past few weeks with new projects and ideas, including range of matters around Hardy Street – again – I’ll cover this next month.
 
6)   Meeting with Darren Henry MP for Broxtowe
 
On Friday 12 June I had a virtual meeting with Darren – he wanted to learn more about Kimberley and specific areas he could help with.
We discussed the tram extension, issues surrounding Hs2 and Kimberley Leisure Centre.  I’ve sent Darren very detailed background reports relating to the tram.
He was especially keen to know about was any “quick wins” – where there are existing smaller projects and requests that he could apply to the government for to help on pressing matters during the next few years.  I mentioned in particular the need for extra funding to help with existing traffic problems in two specific parts of Kimberley.  I touched upon much of the consultation work that had been done in previous years – especially around Maws Lane, Hardy Street and also Swingate Kimberley – that regretfully the County Council had largely disregarded: https://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2016/08/submission-to-nottinghamshire-council-regarding-suggested-highways-improvements-in-kimberley-swingate-and-maws-lane-areas/
 
So I’ve  duly asked him for help for funding to the County Council for funding in both areas above.
I also mentioned the requests for more Zebra Crossings in Kimberley (especially near Gilthill Primary School).
I’m currently awaiting a response from Darren – and when I have more information I will let you know.
 
7)  Western Power – major work expected in Kimberley
 
Many of you may remember the serious traffic problems that occurred in Kimberley in the run up to Christmas last year.  I covered the details at item 2:
 
 
 

I reported at the time that Western Power were due to undertake further work this summer, this time in the vicinity of Main Street (near Orchard Street) Kimberley – regarding an underground pipe

that is 70 years old, and is in need of replacement.

I’ve been in touch with Western Power again – to try and find out when the intended work will now take place, and to try and ensure that adequate notice is given and much better traffic flow is achieved.

We can’t have the traffic chaos that previously brought Kimberley largely to a grinding halt.

They undertaken to come back to me as soon as their definite plans are known, and I’ll update you all as soon as I have more substantive information.

 

8)   Horse Fair Nuthall

I was contacted by some Kimberley residents earlier this week, following a social media post intimating a further Horse Fair may take place during the next few weeks.
I duly contacted Broxtowe Borough Council and the response I received is as follows:
 
___________________________________
From: North, Sarah
Sent: 06 July 2020 15:10
To: Robinson, Richard
Subject: Horse Fair

 
I am emailing in relation to your email to Zulf regarding the post on social media about a further horse fair and claims of a meeting this week with the Council.

I have seen this post today and have been liaising with other officers in Broxtowe to check if anyone has received contact from the organisers requesting any such meeting.  It would appear that no such meeting has been arranged and no contact from the organisers has been received.

Contact will be made via the Safety Advisory Group (SAG) to the organisers encouraging them to postpone any plans they may have for an event in July.  

Kind regards

9)  Langley Mill Super Hub – Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood, & into Amber Valley
 
A virtual meeting with Nottingham City Council, senior officers and cllrs at Broxtowe is taking place on Wednesday 29 July to discuss the next steps in this project with regards to tram extension from Phoenix Park.
We will be making a key point that with regards to HS2 – it is absolutely imperative that the forgotten parts of Broxtowe ie Kimberley and Awsworth  (and indeed places like Ashfield and Amber Valley) do not get left behind further, whilst all the major infrastructure investment goes to the south of the borough of Broxtowe – in and around Toton.
 
We will be demonstrating how from this area – the north of Broxtowe, and with the New Super Hub in Langley Mill – connection could be made to the new HS2 station in Toton in less than seven minutes: PDFReport A-240718
 
I’ve now released within the link below detailed new documents (aLangley Mill Hub 07 02 19 draft 2 doc) click on link in first paragraph:     
Nottingham City Council have agreed to work alongside Broxtowe Borough Council, who will in turn commission an in depth Feasibility Study, looking at the economic case, final route, environmental assessment and benefits, links to other public transport initiatives and so on.  The Feasibility Study will be undertaken in conjunction with Amber Valley Borough Council.  The Feasibility Study was due to take place by 31 December this year (having taken between 3 and 6 months to complete).  The timescales may have to change due to COVID-19 – we will know more after 29 July.
 
The MP for Ashfield – Lee Anderson has agreed to discuss in detail how the tram extension could specifically be of benefit to Eastwood.
 
10)   New Towns Fund, Eastwood
 
I have been asked Cllr Milan Radulovic – Leader of Broxtowe Borough Council to arrange a meeting with Lee Anderson MP for Ashfield, to see what funding can particularly be reached for Eastwood.

By way of background Eastwood has some of the highest childhood poverty rates in the East Midlands, in Eastwood St Marys ward childhood poverty rates are a staggering 34% and unemployment rates are also very high. The area of Eastwood also has some of the worst health statistics too as well as crime and premature deaths.

The aim is to get Eastwood included in the monetary allocations for the New Towns Fund https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/towns-fund-prospectus

The meeting between Milan & Lee is taking place on Thursday 23 July.  

I will update you of progress in August’s newsletter.

Broxtowe News Update & Information – May 2020 edition

Hi all

 

Trust you are all well in these continuing hugely challenging times.

This newsletter features details about much of the work I have been involved in regarding Kimberley Leisure Centre during recent weeks.  I endeavour to set out the facts, a timeline and clear account of what happened, with a statement as to where we are at now.  Some of you on social media, may have seen this information already, so please bear with me (item 4).

Thank you to all those who have been in touch over the past month on other issues, there’s been lots of comments about planning issues, fly tipping and good feedback about what a local recovery plan might look like in Kimberley and throughout Broxtowe.  Going back to fly tipping I have reported all of the areas mentioned to me to Broxtowe, if there are any ongoing matters that have not been resolved please let me know.

There’s some good news for business locally (please see item 1 Reopening High Streets Safely Fund).

If you need help with anything, of have any feedback please let me know.  

Together, we can and will get through this.

Best regards

 

Richard

 Broxtowe News Update & Information – May 2020 edition 
   
 

 

1)  Reopening High Streets fund – COVID-19

 

Broxtowe Borough Council have been awarded £101,458 under the Reopening High Streets Safely Fund. The Fund will help councils in England introduce a range of safety measures to kick-start local economies, get people back to work and customers back to the shops. It will also support a range of practical safety measures including new signs, street markings and temporary barriers.  Councils will also be able to use this money to develop local marketing campaigns to explain the changes to the public and reassure them that their high streets and other commercial areas are safe.  The council is  now developing an action plan as the money will imminently become available provided our requirements meet the government guidance.

If you are involved in a business in Broxtowe and want any more information, please let me know.

 

 

 

2)  When will Broxtowe Borough Council plan to re-open their doors to the public?

 

The council are aiming to re-open our offices (Beeston) to the public on a limited basis from Monday 14 June onwards 9am -12noon only – subject to further discussions with employees, unions, councillors and partners.

Comprehensive risk assessments will be produced and applied before opening takes place.

The council is working with partners CAB and Police to agree a comprehensive approach to cover:

  • Police drop-in service
  • Council appointment only
  • CAB aiming for appointment only but may well encounter those who need immediate help

Social distancing markers will be needed inside and outside.

The cash payment kiosk will remain closed for the foreseeable future (council)

There will be reduced toilet capacity on ground floor as only 1 person at a time in each toilet area (ie 1 male/1 female).

 

More information available from Chief Executive – Mrs Ruth Hyde

3)   Kimberley Recovery Plan

 
As we increasingly come out of lockdown, there will undoubtedly be a “new normal” that we will all have to adapt to.
 
What I am very keen to do though is to establish now what sort of initiatives you would like to see in a Kimberley Recovery Plan.  I feel this will be hugely important.
 
This might be in terms of support for businesses in Kimberley, health and community initiatives, support for individuals, local clubs, public transport and so on.  
 
The best ideas more often than not come from members of the public, so do send me your thoughts, comments and ideas.
 
I’m aware too that people outside of Kimberley and throughout the borough receive this email, so if you have ideas for your areas do let me know, and I can pass the details on.
 
 
4)  Kimberley Leisure Centre
 
This issue took up a huge amount of time this month, and I’ve tried to clarify things, exactly as they happened below.
I might add that I spoke today (Thursday 28 May) with the Deputy Chief Executive Officer at Broxtowe – Zulfiqar Darr – and he indicated that the date for the special council meeting (Kimberley Leisure Centre) next month has not been finalised yet, other than to say it should be the second or third week of June.   Any questions on anything do let me know.
 
Here’s the chronology – starting with the earliest occurrence first: 
 

(a) Friday 15 May – as soon as press release issued – I put this on social media.

Kimberley Leisure Centre: statement from Broxtowe Borough Council today:

15/05/20 – Broxtowe Borough Council has received notice from the East Midlands Education Trust (EMET) to end the current provision of leisure services at Kimberley Leisure Centre.
Leader of the Council, Councillor Milan Radulovic MBE said:
“The Council was shocked and disappointed to receive this notice. We will be working with the trust and our leisure company, LLeisure who operate the facility to come to a resolution amicably and consider options for the future.  Our Leisure and Health Committee will consider this matter on 10th June.
Supporting people to live well is one of the Council’s main priorities. I want to reassure residents that as part of work to develop our Leisure Facilities Strategy, we will be making sure that leisure provision is maintained, including the prospect of establishing a leisure facility in the north of the Borough.
-ends-

My comments – Cllr Robinson:
Obviously should this indeed go ahead – and the current Leisure Centre in Kimberley does close, this is massive loss for the area. I am hugely disappointed with attitude of the Education Trust which has left the council in a hugely difficult position.  There are however a number of significant possibilities presented now about how we can secure new facilities in the area, which albeit will be in a different format. I will be working tirelessly with Kimberley Town Council and members of the public to get the best deal for Kimberley. I will cover this topic in greater detail in my next newsletter out later this month

__________________________________________________________

(b) Sunday 17 May 2020 – I posted this on social media:

Kimberley Leisure Centre update:

This might be quite a long post, but I want to be ultimately transparent and candid, provide you a timeline and give some more context on everything related to the Kimberley Leisure Centre.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to answer a few of the questions that I’ve been asked publicly over the past couple of day’s and hopefully shed some light, rather than heat and provide some clarity.

I’ve had lots of people message me private message me on various technical matters regarding the leisure centre. I’ll respond individually and privately, once I have sought clarification from officials at Broxtowe tomorrow.

I was contacted by Darren Henry – Broxtowe MP yesterday afternoon – I had a long conversation with him, and will send him this information too.

Timeline

  • So a lot of people have asked (generally and privately) just how long Broxtowe Borough Council has known about this.
  • The council was first notified on 23 April – when the Chief Executive received an email from the school which was a termination under the joint use agreement, from Kimberley school relating to all the main aspects of the agreements effective from 31 August 2020 . The situation with regard to the running of the swimming pool was ambiguous.
  • I was notified of this later that day, as were other Broxtowe Borough councillors.
  • With regards to the 2nd bullet point above, this news was a complete shock to the council, came completely out of the blue – with absolutely no prior warning or heads up before.
    As there are 120 staff employed either directly or indirectly with the Leisure Centre, there were clearly important (and confidential) aspects of of staff contracts, employment issues, finance and legal procedures which the council need to look at in order to determine its own position.
  • *All* councillors were asked specifically to refrain on putting any information out in the public domain, as there were for example private and confidential matters relating to staff and their contracts that needed to be clarified, as well a complex legal position to define fully.
  • Some mention of the pending closure of the Leisure Centre was put on a social media in the meantime. It shouldn’t have been, but as is often said “we are where we are”.
    Last Thursday evening The Chief Executive held a virtual session with a group of councillors (of all political parties), senior officers, to inform us of the latest position, and to invite comment on the way forward and when the basic information was to be made public.
  • On Friday 15 May a letter was formally sent to EMET by the council. The council also issued a press notice (meaning this would now being the public domain).
    I wanted to be as transparent as possible and let people know what the press statement said straight away, so I simply copied & pasted the details as an information item to Facebook, to let people know, adding my own comments.
  • Not everyone reads the Broxtowe Borough Council website, or uses the social media platform Twitter where some press releases are issued, which is why I used Facebook to try and get to as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.

I’ve been sent by a number of people the rebuttal from EMET. Lots of people will have their own ideas and form their own opinions, on what has subsequently happened.
I will be seeking to clarify the latest & exact position tomorrow morning.

In terms of moving forward – I’d like to openly acknowledge that I am certainly not the font of all knowledge. Neither do I have the monopoly on the best ideas – *should* it be the case that the current Leisure Centre does not operate after the summer (when general lockdown restrictions may have been lifted) in the form it did prior to 23 March, I know that lots of people have good ideas. There are some industrious people on Kimberley Town Council, some members of the public i.e Pete Thomas – who think outside of the box and offer bold suggestions (and pose challenging questions)!

This will very much be a Team Effort by all residents in and around Kimberley pulling together.

I’ll come back later in the week – with a further update. In the meantime – any questions or comments please come back to me – email: richard.robinson@broxtowe.gov.uk
or if privately tel: 0775 1970 640 – or private message me on FB.

____________________________________________________________________

(c) Tuesday 19 5 20 – I put this on social media:

I spoke with the the Deputy Chief Executive at Broxtowe today at length, plus the Leader of the council to hopefully get some clarity on where things stand now.

I’ve received scores of messages, apologies for those I have not responded to yet.

The report by the Eastwood & Kimberley Advertiser out today is not wholly accurate: please lease see bullet point four below – it will be a special meeting of the Policy & Performance Committee (date to be decided), that will make the relevant decisions.

Here’s my summary:

  • Broxtowe Borough Council will not be rushed into a decision regarding the future of the Leisure Centre, following the original notification they received on 23 April terminating the joint use agreement from the school. It’s better to make the right decision for local people rather than a short sighted and incomplete one.
  • To clarify from previous comments the basic current arrangements at the Leisure Centre cover a Joint Use Agreement between the school and the council for use of gym, pool, 5 a side, dance studio etc. The gym pool etc are operated by Liberty Leisure.
  • Broxtowe Borough Council in this instance is a tenant with the asset belonging to the school.
  • Given the importance of this issue the and scale of the challenges for the whole of the borough and to ensure best deal for Kimberley, yesterday the Leader of Council & Chief Exec agreed at looking to hold a special Policy & Performance (most senior committee outside Full Council) next month. There will be a special report for the committee members to consider, aided by specialist leisure consultant, who will guide Members through all issues, looking at all of the fully costed options.
  • There are complex legal, financial and personnel matters that the council officers are working on now – in order to give the Members of the Council a complete picture in order that the best long term decisions can be taken.
  • Copious work is being undertaken now and will be up to the date of the meeting next month to cover all of the information required for Members of the committee.

 

I will be looking to speak as a Ward Member at the committee next month, representing the views of Kimberley residents and those outside the area who use the facilities.

This will be a virtual meeting of the council next month, and when the details are available I will let you know.

I am both determined to see and confident that we will get a good result for our area.

Any questions in the meantime please get in touch.

 

 
 
 
5)  Langley Mill Super Hub – Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood, & into Amber Valley
 
I had a virtual meeting with Nottingham City Council in April last month to understand the latest position (as much as is possible) with regards to tram extension from Phoenix Park.
 
A lot of work continues behind the scenes with the roll out of HS2 in the East Midlands set to develop further this year.
 
I’ve now released within the link below detailed new documents (aLangley Mill Hub 07 02 19 draft 2 doc) click on link in first paragraph:     
 
Nottingham City Council have agreed to work alongside Broxtowe Borough Council, who will in turn commission an in depth Feasibility Study, looking at the economic case, final route, environmental assessment and benefits, links to other public transport initiatives and so on.  The Feasibility Study will be undertaken in conjunction with Amber Valley Borough Council.  The Feasibility Study was due to take place by 31 December this year (having taken between 3 and 6 months to complete).
 
I am often asked about timescales for the tram (bearing in mind the campaign started in earnest in 2009).  I was advised this week, that if COVID-19 had not come about, we could have been looking for substantial work to be underway by 2030 (just over nine years from now).
 
The onset of COVID-19 naturally changes timescales in the short, medium and long-term.  We don’t know for example what work, leisure and travel will look like in the future, and there are other factors that will need to be taken into account post-COVID-19.
 
There is the hugely related matters of Hs2 at Toton, developments around East Midlands Airport and the whole “free port” concept”.  If you want any more information on the latter please let me know.
 
I have a further meeting planned for the first week of July this year to see what timescales – certainly in terms of the Feasibility Study might be.
 
This is the most up to date information I have at present.  Naturally any questions or comments- as always please do get in touch.
 
 

 

Broxtowe News Update & Information – April 2020 edition

Hi all

It appears like an absolute eternity since I sent out my last newsletter on 24 March.  I wrote at the time that there are massive challenges on a scale many of us will have never experienced before.  However at the same time there are brilliant opportunities when we can all come together and support one another.  There’s been some wonderful initiatives that I’ve seen during the past few weeks – for example Kimberley and District Mutual Aid Group and Kimberley Creatives (Rebecca Goldthorpe) – more about them both respectively below.

This newsletter concentrates mainly on COVID-19 – what’s happening locally in and around Broxtowe, but there are some important other updates below too.  For now I’ve taken the local business section off my newsletters, but will restore them as soon as businesses can reopen in whatever form this is.

If you need help with anything, of have any feedback please let me know.  

Together, we can and will get through this.

Best regards

 Broxtowe News Update & Information – April 2020 edition 
   
 
1)   Celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day on Friday 8th May (virtually)
 
I know that lots of people had events planned for next Friday, including Kimberley Town Council who of course, like other organisation have sadly had to cancel.
In Broxtowe however there are still five things that you can do.  Please see:
 
 
For more information please visit:
 
or contact Broxtowe Borough Council on 0115 917 3210
 
2)   Kimberley Recovery Plan
 
We will of course at some point come out of lockdown, partially, then on a gradually increased phased timescale  My own view and after talking with a number of leaders is that at stands currently there won’t be that many vastly significant easements from next Thursday and Friday when the government is due to review the end of the current period of stasis.
 
There will undoubtedly be a “new normal” that we will all have to adapt to.
 
What I am very keen to do though is to establish now what sort of initiatives you would like to see in a Kimberley Recovery Plan.  I feel this will be hugely important.
 
This might be in terms of support for businesses in Kimberley, health and community initiatives, support for individuals, local clubs, public transport and so on.  
 
The best ideas more often than not come from members of the public, so do send me your thoughts, comments and ideas.
 
I’m aware too that people outside of Kimberley and throughout the borough receive this email, so if you have ideas for your areas do let me know, and I can pass the details on.
 
3)  Fly tipping
 
I have dealt with a number of complaints regarding fly tipping during the past few weeks.  If you see any items dumped anywhere, please let me know, together with the location.
 
4)   Kimberley and District Mutual Aid Group (KADMAG)
 
I am in regular contact with Steve Robinson-Day – Founder of KADMAG.  Both he and they are doing an amazing job!

(KADMAG) is now into it’s 7th week of operations.  As a mutual Aid Group working across Kimberley, Watnall and Nuthall, they continue to help people who are shielding because of the Coronavirus with shopping, prescription pick ups, dog walking or lifts to GP appointments.

All of their services are free, with help coming from friendly people who live on your street.  To access their services simply ring: 0115 6480916

They also offer a listening service for those who want someone to have a friendly chat with during isolation. All their listeners are trained and the service is confidential. You can call that service at any time between 9am and 8pm on 0115 6480932.

 
5)  Langley Mill Super Hub – Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood, & into Amber Valley
 
I had a virtual meeting with Nottingham City Council earlier this week to understand the latest position (as much as is possible) with regards to tram extension from Phoenix Park.
 
I’ve now released within the link below detailed new documents (aLangley Mill Hub 07 02 19 draft 2 doc) click on link in first paragraph:     
 
Nottingham City Council have agreed to work alongside Broxtowe Borough Council, who will in turn commission an in depth Feasibility Study, looking at the economic case, final route, environmental assessment and benefits, links to other public transport initiatives and so on.  The Feasibility Study will be undertaken in conjunction with Amber Valley Borough Council.  The Feasibility Study was due to take place by 31 December this year (having taken between 3 and 6 months to complete).

I have a further meeting planned for the first week of July this year to see what timescales – certainly in terms of the Feasibility Study might be.
 
This is the most up to date information I have at present.  Naturally any questions or comments- as always please do get in touch.
 
 
6)   The Kimberley School, Newdigate Street, Kimberley
 
I was approached by the school this month to try and assist with a matter relating to the National Voucher Scheme, in lieu of Free School Meals, via Edenred (supermarket vouchers to their eligible families (117 students) or a food parcel (at the school). 
 
It’s probably fair to say that school meals families are the most vulnerable of a school community as it is essential that such a system works efficiently and effectively to support them at this critical time.
There were problems with The Kimberley School being able to receive the vouchers, so I got in touch with Edenred on the school’s behalf.
 
I’m pleased to say that there’s been a significant improvement of late that The Kimberley School have reported to me, and whilst it’s not perfect, at least some of our most vulnerable people are being looked after now in this way.  
 
If you are aware of problems in any other schools please let me know.
 
7)   Resurfacing – Little Lane, Kimberley
 
I was asked earlier this month about the completion of resurfacing for the area around Little Lane in Kimberley.  I approached VIA(East Mids) who undertake highways related work for Nottinghamshire Council – and their response was as follows:
 
“As you are aware, the nation currently finds itself in an unprecedented situation due to COVID19, particularly with the recent Government advice regarding mandatory self-isolation and social distancing. As I am sure you understand, we want everyone at Via to stay safe and well. As such, our Operations resources have been diverted from the programme of planned works and our Operations team will now concentrate on delivery of the essential site visits and highway asset inspections, to ensure the highway network is kept safe.
 
As a result, unfortunately the planned scheme listed above will not be delivered as planned and will be reprogrammed for delivery in the future”.
 
This will apply to other areas around Kimberley and also elsewhere where resurfacing work was due to be undertaken.

8)   Covid Creatives – Kimberley – on Facebook

https://www.facebook.com/rebecca.goldthorpe.7

Another fantastic initiative, this time set up by Rebecca Goldthorpe.

The place for all who fancy creating art and new friendships here in this wonderful community.

If you are not on Facebook and want information on this, please let me know.

 

9)    Bin Collection Day & rubbish for the household tip

A number of residents have been in touch to raise the issue of overflowing bins.  This apparently is because some people have put their bins out at night – the day before collection in the morning – only then to find in the morning the bins overflowing with rubbish that others have put in.  This is rubbish that would have normally gone to the tip, but because the recycling centres are shut, they are putting the stuff instead inside neighbours bins.   This causes extra problems for the refuse operatives – as the bins are then extremely heavy to manoeuvre.

I should state that this is not acceptable.

If anyone else experiences any problems with this please let me know.

 

10)   Former Kimberley Brewery Site – Hardy Street, Kimberley

I had a virtual meeting this week with Fairgrove managers following a range of concerns that had been raised with me by local residents living nearby.  I’ve responded individually to the general concerns regarding dust, drainage, health and safety etc.  

I’m advised that a team of bricklayers is planned to return to work next week.

Any points or questions, as always please let me know.

 

 11)  Blogs

I wrote 3 blogs earlier this month (will do some more when I get the chance).  I try to inject a sense of humour into what are extraordinary difficult times.

You can catch a read at the links below:

COVID-19 Blog – Day’s 3, 4 & 5 – The really good side of technology & social media, my good friend Bryan, turning 58, Labour’s new leaders, Sainsbury’s plastic bags & my Leeds United mug

Broxtowe News Update & Information – March 2020 edition

Good afternoon all

These are unprecedented times in the history of our country, and our communities, our streets and neighbourhoods.

Massive challenges on a scale many of us will have never experienced before.  However at the same time there are brilliant opportunities when we can all come together and support one another (and it’s already happening)!

Naturally this newsletter concentrates mainly on COVID-19 – what’s happening locally in and around Broxtowe.  

In Kimberley there is a fantastic on-line initiative been set up by Steve Robinson Day entitled Kimberley & District Mutual Aid Group.   Then another one by Rebecca Goldthorpe – Kimberley Creatives.  I cover both of these below.

For my part I’m working alongside the groups that have been set up, supporting them, passing on messages I have received for help.  Also I’m sharing official information I receive from Broxtowe, government agencies etc.

I’m aware of other groups been set up in different parts of the borough.  If you need any more information let me know.

I will keep you updated with all official information I receive from Broxtowe Borough Council, community groups and other government sources as I get them.  The frequency of my newsletters may therefore increase during the next few weeks.

If you need help with anything, please let me know.  I’ll pass you onto the right people to assist.

Together, we can and will get through this!

 Broxtowe News Update & Information – March 2020 edition 
 
 1)  Kimberley and District Mutual Aid Group
 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/KimberleyMutualAid/

A community group has emerged to help the those who are vulnerable or are self isolating.

The group is on Facebook and is called Kimberley and District Mutual Aid Group.  If you haven’t already joined and live in Kimberley, Nuthall or Watnall, then please consider joining so that you can provide much needed assistance to your vulnerable neighbours.

This is also a place where you can ask for help, whether for yourself or a relative or friend who may be isolated and could do with a bit of help.  They don’t need to be on Facebook, as long as you can give their details then the neighbourhood teams will do the rest.

Please check it out if you can help or need help during this crisis.

The key contact is Steve Robinson Day.  You can find him on Facebook.

If you are not on Facebook and you want to help out, or need assistance, please let me know and I can pass the details on.

 

2)  Covid Creatives – Kimberley – on Facebook

https://www.facebook.com/rebecca.goldthorpe.7

Another fantastic initiative, this time set up by Rebecca Goldthorpe.

The place for all who fancy creating art and new friendships here in this wonderful community.

If you are not on Facebook and want information on this, please let me know.

 

3)  Local information for Broxtowe businesses

 

As you will be aware, many business were recently told to close by Government until further notice, with a view to help reduce the further spread of Covid-19. This is to be reviewed on a monthly basis.

As a result some of the businesses have completely ceased trading indefinitely.

However, some are continuing to trade under revised opening hours, as well as variations to the goods and services regular customers may be used to and the way in which they are sold.

 

For example – some businesses have stopped customers entering their store, but are taking advance telephone orders for collection at the door. Others may be providing a delivery service, where they may not have previously.

 

What we are doing

The Council will shortly be listing details of all businesses in Broxtowe on it’s website. Here we will be sharing details of businesses and whether they are providing collection/delivery services, have reduced stock etc.

How you can help

We require a lot of detail from businesses across the entire Borough, as quickly as possible, to help keep residents informed of the goods and services they can still access safely and support the business during this tough time. We know you are often a first point of contact for businesses/people who need help, therefore if you are contacted please ask businesses to send details of:

 

  • are they still open,
  • are they offering a collection/delivery services,
  • current opening hours
  • reduced stock
  • what else they are doing to serve the community at this time

 

and send this to

towncentres@broxtowe.gov.uk

OR

Econmic.develpoment@broxtowe.gov.uk

 

This will allow us to collate all the information centrally. We can then post regular updates and you share this with the public.

As far as support and finances we are updating www.broxtowe.gov.uk/BusinessCovid19  with the most up to date Government guidance and would ask businesses are sign posted here initially.

4)  Latest official information received from Broxtowe Borough Council Chief Exeutive – COVID-19 as of 23 March 2020

 

We have made rapid progress with rolling out working from home. By Wednesday we will have almost full capability to work from home. We’re awaiting a final delivery of laptops but are enabling normally fixed desk employees to take desktops home, which should enable 100% of employees to work from home 100% of their time. This has been a massive logistical task but being achieved very successfully thanks to the ICT team’s brilliant work and a real “one team” effort by employees.

 Our offices will be closed for face to face public service from tomorrow – a general press release to the public was issued this afternoon. The offices will be checked daily despite being mainly empty for any risks or threats. Construction work on “new ways of working” will be paused from Friday. CAB will no longer need access to the building after this week. Police will require access which will be enabled. We will also channel any remaining need to access the building to Wednesday – hopefully a half day, to minimise the risk for any comings or goings and infection spread.

Our services are all still open for business by phone or online. Our website provides up to date information on which services are affected. https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/for-you/crime-safety-emergencies/coronavirus-covid-19/affected-council-services/

The main developments since the last daily update are as follows:

  • We will be closing and padlocking play areas from Wednesday. Parks owned by Broxtowe will remain open as in Broxtowe people seem to be respecting social distancing advice whilst using them. Notices regarding social distancing will be placed at the entrances to our parks.
  • Car parking charging; we are suspending the charging arrangements as this involves interacting with the car parking machines, which may help to spread infection. These will be covered up. The enforcement arrangements will move to very “light touch” to ensure the car parks are not abused.
  • Leisure centres have now closed completely. Staff from Liberty Leisure are being engaged in volunteer humanitarian relief and business continuity to support the response of the council to the Covid 19 outbreak. The Council intends to make up to 100% their salary, as the salary of compulsorily “furloughed” employees will be covered by an 80% government grant up to £2500 per month. There will therefore be a cost to the Council which will be reported to the next Policy Committee.
  • New taxi licensing applications will not be processed for the moment as the process involves a face to face interview which can’t happen at present.
  • Disabled facilities grants will continue to be processed as far as possible, and emergency grants will proceed normally,( eg to facilitate hospital discharge) but there may be some delay on processing non urgent new DFG requests because of the need for site visits.
  • Neighbourhood wardens: one employee is now self-isolating as he and his wife have both developed a cough. This means there will be a couple of days when there is no Warden provision. Babbington Kennels have been advised, as have our Call Centre, that on those days there will be no stray dog service and dogs will have to go directly to Babbington (as currently happens at weekend).
  • The licensing manager is writing to all premises involved in the requirement to close / not sell on the premises (pubs, clubs, restaurants, bingo halls, bookmakers, etc) to remind them of the new legislation.  He is also undertaking some checks to ensure compliance and following up on any reports that breaches have occurred. We will also do some media work on this warning people of the consequences of breaching the new rules.
  • Food hygiene inspections have been suspended on the basis of guidance from the Food Standards Agency
  • The only private sector housing inspections now being undertaken are in respect of emergencies. Inspection of HMOs for licensing has been suspended.
  • We are continuing our efforts to increase capacity and resilience at the crematorium by retraining employees to be able to operate at front and back of the operation. After a software upgrade over the weekend all services can be broadcast remotely. This means by Wednesday we will restrict attendance at cremations to 5 people to limit the risk of infection.
  • We are actively proceeding with plans to increase capacity for burials at Beeston cemetery by 80 plots by turning a narrow strip of land at the edge of the current site into useable space. This involves the felling of some self seeded saplings. Residents overlooking the area are being consulted by letter.
  • General Needs Housing –  We will not be undertaking home visits but will contact tenants by phone. We are contacting tenants who are over 70 or vulnerable to offer support. As at 4.30pm, we had contacted 268 households with over 70s in general needs (out of 544 households- 670 individuals). We will continue with this tomorrow.
  • Independent Living – Independent Living Coordinators will not be working on schemes but will contact tenants by phone- all 1700 tenants living in these schemes have already been contacted. All communal rooms, such as lounges, quiet rooms and hobby rooms will be closed. Activities in schemes have also been cancelled.
  • Housing Allocations – We will be contacting every applicant who has been offered a property to review their current situation and see if they are able to remain in their current accommodation at this time
  • Homelessness – The service will be offered via phone, anyone who needs to speak to the homeless team should contact 0115 917 7777.
  • Households that are self-isolating should follow the Government’s ‘Stay at home’ advice on waste disposal which states:
  • Store personal waste such as used tissues and disposable cleaning cloths securely within disposable rubbish bags.
  • Place these bags into another bag, tie securely and keep separate from other waste.
  • These bags should be put aside for at least 72 hours before being put in your usual external general waste bin.
  • Please do not take this waste to your local Recycling Centre.

           Other household waste will be disposed of as normal.

It is more important than ever to ensure that recycling is clean and dry, and that rubbish bags are all securely tied to help prevent spills and protect our collection teams and the public.

BUSINESS SUPPORT

  • Chancellor Rishi Sunak has announced that the Government will pay the wages of employees unable to work due to the coronavirus pandemic, paying 80% of the salary of staff retained by their employer up to £2,500 a month. The move, which covers gross pay, will be backdated to the start of March and last for three months. Mr Sunak said the coronavirus job retention scheme, which will be run by HMRC, would be extended “if necessary.” Mr Sunak also announced that VAT payments will be deferred until the end of June, while self-assessment income tax payments for July 2020 are to be deferred for six months. The Universal Credit standard allowance for the next 12 months has been increased by £1,000 a year, as has the Working Tax Credit basic element. The Chancellor said HMRC is working to ensure the first grants are available within weeks, with businesses able to apply for relief from Monday.
  • The software amendment enabling the retail business rates relief to be processed is now available and has been tested. We are looking to begin administering this tomorrow.
  • We’re awaiting the government guidance on the remaining grants and rates reliefs for business.

HUMANITARIAN RELIEF

  • Alex McLeish from the Communities team will be seconded into the effort led by the county to co-ordinate humanitarian relief in Notts. Information he has collated, made available last Friday on our website, will be made available to the Notts CC website. The County Council’s “hub” will be the main point of contact where all calls will be triaged and channelled to the right support in the community.
  • The Council’s economic development team is drawing together information from local businesses on their business offers in terms of home deliveries, meal delivery, takeaways etc. This information will be also added to our website and passed to the County Council.
  • The Council has agreed to make available immediate financial grants to key bodies working in covid 19 humanitarian relief. We’ll be making some press announcements over the next day or so about these. These include:
    • £10k each immediately to Hope; to Eastwood VB , to Eastwood Age concern, and to Middle Street.
    • £2,000 to each mutual aid group – we’re aware of groups operating in Beeston and Chilwell; Kimberley; Stapleford; Eastwood. We’ll be writing to these groups in the next day or two to make arrangements, and also contacting Parish Councils to see if they need any financial assistance in covid 19 response.

 

 

 

 

Broxtowe News Update & Information – February 2020 edition

Hi all

Welcome to my second newsletter of 2020.  A special greeting to all those who have joined over the past month or so.

It seems (well to me anyway) an absolute eternity since my last newsletter which I sent out on 9 January.   I went on holiday for two weeks last month, and during this time I was receiving multiple messages on local issues such as flooding in Kimberley near Kettlebrook Lodge, planning applications, and the widespread disquiet regarding tree felling on the former brewery site amongst other matters.

This newsletter is therefore probably longer than some of my most recent ones as there is a lot of information to relay following the amount of questions I’ve been asked on the above and other issues too.  So please bear with me.  

I’ve been tagged in various social media (Facebook) posts during the past few weeks, in addition to emails, ‘phone calls and other messages.  I’m going to endeavour to cover in this one newsletter as comprehensive an update as I can.  However if I have missed anything out – I’m sorry – please do come back to me!  Additionally I started a new job on 3 February (see item 10 below) – so it’s fair to see it’s been pretty full on during February.  

There are other issues I’m working on in Kimberley – particularly concerning highways matters – I’m not going to go into specific detail now, but will cover them in depth in subsequent newsletters later this year.

If you need help with personal casework or anything else, or have any feedback do get in touch.  I am just about up to date now, so responses should be reasonably prompt.

A reminder that all previous newsletters going back to 2007 can be found at: https://richardsrobinson.org.uk/work-in-broxtowe/

Feedback as always is very welcome.

Best regards

 Broxtowe News Update & Information – February 2020 edition 
 
 
1)  Petition to Broxtowe Borough Council regarding Ruilsip Close and Bassett Close car park
 
At the Full Council meeting at Broxtowe on 18 December 2019 I presented a petition to Broxtowe Borough Council on behalf of local residents, who are unhappy with the state of the adjacent car park.  Resurfacing has taken place elsewhere in this vicinity, but thus far this particular piece of land in question has been excluded.
 
As soon as I get an update with progress I will let you know.
 
2)    Severe disruption in Kimberley traffic flow in the run up to Christmas
 
I reported in January’s newsletter: https://richardsrobinson.org.uk/2020/01/broxtowe-news-update-information-january-2020/ – how i had met on
Monday 30 December 2019 at Sainsbury’s cafe in Kimberley two representatives of Western Power, after the recent severe traffic problems before Christmas on Main Street. They explained in details their roles and responsibility, that of their contractors Gallagher, and also the notification they had provided to the County Council.
 
Relating to this issue and in various subsequent conversations, I have received comments from local residents on how traffic flow could be possibly improved generally, when trying to exit Swingate.  One of the ideas I have received is to encourage the County Council to reverse the current One Way system on High Street (thereby allowing traffic to exit Swingate without being forced to come down Greens Lane past Sainsbury’s).
 
I am planning to write shortly to local residents in the immediate vicinity who would be affected by such a change, before putting any concrete proposals to the County Council.
 
If anyone has any comments or questions in the meantime, please get in touch.
 
3)   Flooding in Kimberley – Eastwood Road – water draining onto the highway – causing particular problems near Kettlebrook Lodge and the Broxtowe council depot
 
I have received much correspondence and much also concern about this matter.
 
I’m sure many of you in Kimberley will have seen the problems on a first hand basis.  I missed some of the worst occurrences whilst I was away in January.
 
I have arranged a meeting between several bodies including Severn Trent, Broxtowe Borough Council, and various community leaders who use Kettlebrook Lodge for Wednesday 11 March so we can get a joined up long-term solutions to the problems here.
 
If anyone has any questions or comments please let me know.
 
I will feedback the results of the meeting in my next newsletter.
 
 
4)  Free bulky waste collections in March for Broxtowe residents
 
Free bulky waste weeks will be taking place during next month for Broxtowe residents – please see: https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/for-you/waste-and-recycling/bulky-waste/ for dates.  Please note that in March for the northern part of Broxtowe – the locations will be Nuthall, Kimberley & Brinsley respectively.

5)   Former brewery site Kimberley
 
It’s undoubtedly fair to say that the shedding of the trees adjacent to Hardy Street, Nine Corners and Eastwood Road has caused much grief to many local residents, and I have received a stack of complaints and questions about this and generally about the former brewery site development during the past six weeks.
 
These are the questions (and subsequent answers) to the those raised: 
 
a) Have the owners of the brewery site paid proper rates on the empty buildings? – Answer: The Brewery was taken over by Greene King Brewing & Retailing Limited on 5 September 2006 and remained a fully operational concern, paying business rates, until it ceased operations until 24 April 2008.  From 25 April 2008 until 1 February 2018, when it was sold for housing development, no money was paid in business rates.  The property was put on a ‘Listed Exemption’ and no rates were payable. 
 
 
b) What are the S106 (developer contributions) going towards locally?  Answer: The only S106 monies from the development are those for affordable housing (£279,857). The S106 Agreement requires that these are paid prior to practical completion or occupation of 10 dwellings within ‘Area 1’ which forms part of the ‘woodlands’ area.
 
c)  Concerns were raised on the reports that were necessary concerning Arboricultural Assessment, Bats Amphibians, Breeding birds etc.  Residents in particular have commented on whether the reports were actually undertaken by the council and what the public access to them is?  Answer: The reports were submitted as part of the original planning application 13/00570/FUL and proposed mitigation measures which need to be adhered to. This includes bat and bird boxes. The Reserved Matters application only related to design, layout, scale and landscaping rather than the principle of the development.
 
d) What is happening with the Maltings and tower buildings?  Answer: The Maltings are being converted into 18 apartments (17/00825/FUL). The tower will also be converted into residential use (13/00570/FUL).
 
e)  What is the situation regarding the new houses that are sitting on a sheer wall of soil, and why is there no retainer wall?  Answer: The completed houses were subject to building control checks throughout the development. There is a drainage scheme for the houses on the former woodland area which will deal with existing or future drainage issues arising from the development.
 
f) A number of people have asked for dates of Planning Committees at Broxtowe that have sat over the past few years that have made key decisions pertinent to how the developments are taking shape now – please see immediately below:
 
There were two planning committees – 8 October 2014 and 7 October 2015 respectively where original decisions were made.  If anyone wants copies of the minutes please let me know.
 
Further points were raised about which decisions have been delegated to officers and which have gone to committee?
 
·       13/00570/FUL & 13/00571/LBC – ‘The original consents’ – this was a hybrid application, part ‘full’ (the brewery yard) and part outline (the woodland and former warehouse yard). All documents submitted can be found on the council’s website.
 
·       This application was determined by planning committee on 8 October 2014.  It was taken back to Committee on 7th October 2015 with the only alterations being to the wording/phasing of the conditions.
 
·       16/00333/REM – Reserved matters approval for phase 1 (of planning permission 13/00570/FUL) area of residential development to construct 25 dwellings including appearance, layout and landscaping. The application was taken to planning committee on 9th November 2016. It was determined to grant planning permission subject to minor amendments to the design and materials of some of the proposed dwellings.
 
·       17/00022/MMA – Minor material amendment of planning permission 16/00333/REM to allow for alterations to the design of plots 1-25. This was a delegated decision 13.3.17.
 
·       17/00118/ROC – Removal of condition 11 of planning permission ref: 13/00570/FUL. This was a delegated decision 12.01.18
 
·       17/00699/FUL (and corresponding listed building consent) – External alterations and conversion of Kiln Stores to two dwellings and associated parking. Delegated decision 28.1.19.
 
·       17/00700/FUL – Change of use from Kilns to create 8 duplex apartments and ancillary parking (and corresponding listed building consent). Delegated decision 28.1.19.
 
·       17/00701/FUL – Construct 14 four storey town houses. Committee decision. 21.3.18
 
·       17/00771/FUL – Revisions to the design of plots 9 and 10 approved under reference 17/00022/MMA and the construction of an additional dwelling to form a terrace. Delegated decision 23.3.18
 
·       17/00825/FUL (and corresponding listed building consent) – Change of use from Maltings building to 18 apartments with parking. Committee decision 21.03.2018
 
·       18/00857/REM – Construct 55 dwellings (approval of reserved matters relating to planning reference 13/00570/FUL). Delegated decision  28.11.19
 
 
If you have sent me a question, and it’s not been answered please come back to me.  Email is preferred or you can message me privately via Facebook, or ‘phone me.
Please note I don’t respond to every post I am tagged in on Facebook.  I do not believe it’s always the most judicious way to respond and have constructive dialogue.
Posts can be at times highly charged – generating more heat than light.  
 
Moving forward I am keen to take fully onboard the ongoing concerns that people have for the the coming months and years and into the forseeable future. I know some are concerned for example about the availability of school places, the immediate impact on the fragile roads and road systems in and around Kimberley – especially the problems in and around Hardy Street, Maws Lane & Cliff Boulevard for example.
 
I am happy to arrange a public meeting if you feel this will be both productive and constructive – I can invite Broxtowe Planners, Fairgroves, County Council – and other relevant bodies as appropriate.  
 
Please do come back to me with your views, and specifically state if you would be prepared to come to a public meeting.
 

6)   Penalty charges for charging in The Precinct, Kimberley

The arrangements for parking in The Precinct, Kimberley have changed, and now there is a limited free parking for a set amount of time.  I have received some complaints about people being charged excessive fees when they have overstayed  the limit – even when it is only for a matter of minutes.  If you have experienced any problems please let me know.

 

7)   Publicly available WI-FI in Kimberley

This is now set to be installed in the town centre next month after consultations with the various partners.

If anyone wants any more detailed information please let me know.

 

8)   Tram extension from Phoenix Park through Kimberley & Eastwood

 

Many of you will have heard the news that the Hs2 High Speed Rail link is now planned to go ahead.  The Government have confirmed this.   There is a major impact in Broxtowe – with the Hs2 station at Toton, with manifest opportunities for jobs, investment, growth and connectivity in the north of the borough.

I will be doing whatever I can working with colleagues from various bodies and from different political parties and local authorities to expedite the tram extension plans out from Phoenix Park, and to make sure that we are connected with Hs2 at Toton.

We have an internal meeting at Broxtowe Borough Council next week to look specifically at this, and I hope to report back in next month’s newsletter as to what timescales we might be looking at going forward.  An in depth and comprehensive Feasbility Study is due to take place later this year to help with the planning of this project – including other public transport options along the A610 corridor.

Langley Mill Super Hub – Tram extension Line 4 phase III to Kimberley, Eastwood & into Amber Valley

 

9)  Return of the Farmers Market in Kimberley?

I reported a while back that interest was being shown again in reinstating a monthly Farmers Market taking place in Kimberley.  I’ve been told that a local market operator is keen to explore some options, and I am due to meet with them next month.

I’ve also received interest from local traders who are willing to participate at the market with a stall.

As soon as there is any more information I will let you know.  

Please get in touch for any mor information.

 

10)   My new full-time job

Some of you will be aware that my full time job for a number of years has been working for a Member of Parliament – see https://richardsrobinson.org.uk/ for full details.  For seven years I worked for Gavin Shuker in Luton South and when he lost his seat at the General Election in December last year – I duly lost my job.

I was duly asked earlier this year by the new MP for Ashfield Lee Anderson to join his staff team – working for him in the constituency office helping with casework (based in Sutton in Ashfield).  I have been working here since 3 February this year.

My position as in Independent Cllr in Kimberley remains unchanged.

I am not a member of any political party.

 

11)   News in brief

 

a) I’m supporting Kimberley Bowls Club with regards to funding for a defibrillator.  More developments in future newsletters.

b) I’m looking at new possible options for a cinema and operator at Giltbrook Retail Park.  More developments in future newsletters.

Broxtowe News Update & Information – January 2020

Hi all

A very warm welcome to my first newsletter of 2020, and of course this decade.

I would like to take this opportunity of wishing you all a happy and healthy New Year.

Local politics will always bring its challenges with many competing interests.  I will continue to work hard for you all, and attempt to be an Ambassador not only for Kimberley, but for Broxtowe as well, with the different hats I wear from time to time.

There’s a number of things to update you on, so straight down to business.                       

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

Feedback as always is very welcome.

Best regards

 
 

Richard

 Broxtowe News Update & Information – January 2020 edition
 
 
 
1)  Petition to Broxtowe Borough Council regarding Ruilsip Close and Bassett Close car park
 
At the Full Council meeting at Broxtowe on 18 December 2019 I presented a petition to Broxtowe Borough Council on behalf of local residents, who are unhappy with the state of the adjacent car park.  Resurfacing has taken place elsewhere in this vicinity, but thus far this particular piece of land in question has been excluded.
 
As soon as I get an update with progress I will let you know.
 
2)    Severe disruption in Kimberley traffic flow in the run up to Christmas
 
Last Monday 30 December 2019 at Sainsbury’s cafe in Kimberley I met with two representatives of Western Power, after the recent severe traffic problems before Christmas on Main Street. They explained in details their roles and responsibility, that of their contractors Gallagher, and also the notification they had provided to the County Council.
 
I went through the particular many problems that people in and around Kimberley experienced, and we talked through how these could be avoided in future, and also the need to repair the pavements properly on Main Street (with the original surfacing). The latter is the responsibility of Gallagher, and they will be reminded about their obligations.
 

I am advised that further major work is planned in Kimberley in this year because a cable underneath Main Street (near Orchard Street) that is 70 years old, is in need of replacement.

I asked whether this work could be undertook within the 6 week holidays in summer 2020 (it will take around 4 weeks to complete) – to avoid as much congestion as possible. I have also suggested some proper diversions that could be formally consulted upon in Kimberley – (for example lifting one way restriction on High Street) on a temporary basis, to let cars come out of Swingate more swiftly). This would probably involve a temporary light control. Western Power will come back to me, and when I have this information I will liaise with the County Council and consult with the Town Council and get as much prior feedback as possible.

Residents have also put forward to me the idea of reversing the one way system on High Street as an alternative, so drivers would be able to get straight through to High Street on leaving Swingate, rather than having to go past Sainsbury’s and the precinct.

On Tuesday this week I met with the Head Teacher at Kimberley Primary School Lisa Turner-Rowe, to discuss in particular the problems that both the school and parents experienced before Christmas.  There’s some interesting proposals that she has for traffic improvement towards the bottom of Swingate and Greens Lane that I will be hoping to take forward in due course.

I’l be doing some consultations with local residents in the High Street area on the different One Way ideas to see if there is a consensus on a sensible way forward and I’ll publish these in due course.

It is of course really annoying that the County Council failed to take any action whatsoever before 4 years ago, after a lot of time and energy by local residents and myself was put into making a case for traffic flow improvements coming in and out of Swingate – click on:

 
Safe to say a more robust approach will be adopted this time.
 
I will report back further as the year unfolds with progress.  If you have any views, comments and suggestions I will be very pleased to hear from you.
 
3)   2020 priorities
 
Some of the other major work I will be involved in this year will involve the following projects and initiatives;
 
ensuring the public wi-fi for Kimberley Town Centre is fully implemented – the latest information I have been given, is that this should be up and running by the end of next month.
 
ensuring a range of highway & traffic related items in Kimberley is properly tackled – this includes a possible one-way Maws Lane system, Eastwood Road safety issues and community transport availability for older people in Kimberley.
 
supporting local businesses in Kimberley through networking events, taking action on ideas such as a local discount voucher scheme, grants for new businesses etc, improving parking facilities.
 
working further on plans for a cinema complex – in the Eastwood, Kimberley area.
 
taking the plans for the tram extension to Kimberley to Eastwood and Langley Mill Super Hub/link to Hs2 – to the next stage:
 
 All, in all I expect I shall be kept fairly busy.  If you have separate items you would want addressing please let me know.
 
 
4)  Free bulky waste collections in January for Broxtowe residents
 
Free bulky waste weeks will be taking place during w/c 27 January and w/c 3rd February 2020. 
Bookings for these weeks will start at 8.30am on  6 January 2020.

5)   State of road surfaces – Swingate and Knowle Lane, Kimberley
 
 Below is one of the ‘photos I took yesterday of the state of roads near Kimberley Primary school.  I have raised the matter with the County Council today.
If you have areas that need attention, please let me know.

Broxtowe News Update & Information December 2019 (General Election edition)

Hi all

Welcome to the December 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.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a Happy Christmas and peaceful 2020.

This newsletter content is somewhat different information to usual – as I will concentrate more on party politics, the candidates and the up and coming General Election next week – 12 December.  I’ll cover some brief non-election issues first, then get straight down to the main business.

I acknowledge that some of you will have already voted by now – due to having postal votes, so the information here maybe somewhat redundant!

However for those that are voting on 12 December, and still have to complete their postal votes – I hope the information provided below is useful.

I’ll be back in January with a full community news bulletin and update.

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

Feedback as always is very welcome.

Best regards

 
 

Richard

 Broxtowe News Update & Information December 2019 (General Election edition)
 
1)   News in brief
 
a) Kimberley business networking session – Wednesday 27 November, The Dog House.
We had our busiest session yet – with lots of local businesses attending – both new and old.
It was an excellent event with lots of suggestions as to how to try to make improvements for local businesses and boost trade in Kimberley.  These included the introduction of a loyalty card, completion of the broadband scheme for the town centre, reintroduction of a monthly market, looking at how parking restrictions could be eased, better signage for Free Parking, advertising and promotions, how to engage more business in Kimberley from shoppers at Giltbrook Retail Park.
 
I’ve got a meeting planned tomorrow with officers from Broxtowe’s Business Growth team to follow these items up, and I’ll update with progress in the New Year.
We’ll also have further networking sessions during 2020.
 
Any questions please contact myself or: 
 
 
Matt Batterham, Business Growth Manager

Council Offices, Foster Avenue
Beeston, Nottingham, NG9 1AB
Tel: 0115 917 7777 x 3043
matthew.batterham@broxtowe.gov.uk 
 
 b)  Tree planting in Broxtowe 
I’ve had a number of enquiries about tree planting recently.
The Council has a policy to plant 2,000 new trees in the Borough each year.  This follows on from our previous successful campaign over an eight year period to plant 100,000 trees in Broxtowe.
Last week 700 trees should hae been planted in one of our parks, however the weather and ground conditions has meant this has had to be rescheduled.  The trees will still be planted though.  In 2020 there will be 500 free fruit trees handed out to Broxtowe residents, and it is intended to continue this scheme into 2021.
 
More information is available from Tim Crawford – tim.crawford@broxtowe.gov.uk 
 
c)   Gilt Hill, Kimberley – parking
I have continued to receive a steady stream of complaints about obstructive parking (on the left hand side of the road – going down) towards Ikea.
This matter has been raised both with the County Council and Broxtowe.  The former have advised that they cannot take any action, however Broxtowe are specifically dealing with this matter now – from a nuisance/anti social behaviour perspective.
 
Please get in touch for more information.
 
 
2)  The General Election on Thursday 12 December
 
Important basic information.  Polls are open 7am until 10pm.  There is no voter ID scheme in Broxtowe this time, unlike the local elections in May this year – when you had to take personal identification with you.  I’m aware that some of you live in other nearby parliamentary constituencies like Amber Valley and Ashfield.  Again it’s the same voting times, and there is no other ID needed.  It’s always helpful to take your polling card with you to vote, but it’s not compulsory.
If you have a postal vote you can hand it in on 12 December at a polling station within your respective borough.
 
The General Election 2019 – a really simple guide – (source the BBC) https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-49826655
 
Amber Valley (parliamentary constituency) was Labour from 1997 to 2010 but has returned a Conservative MP in the 2010, 2015 and 2017 General Elections.
It currently has a Labour controlled borough council (this will not change as a result of the elections next Thursday).  Neither will this affect the borough council and county council leadership elsewhere throughout the country.
 
Ashfield parliamentary constituency (including Eastwood and Brinsley) has traditionally been a Labour stronghold – though its majority has weakened over recent years.
It is currently Labour – Gloria De Piero has been the MP since 2010 (and has worked extremely hard) but she has decided to stand down at this election.  Previous incumbents include Geoff Hoon and the late Frank Haynes.
 
So to Broxtowe – where the parliamentary constituency covers areas in the southern parts such as Beeston, Attenborough, Chilwell, Bramcote and Stapleford, through to the more northern hemisphere of Trowell, Cossall, Awsworth, Nuthall, Greasley and Kimberley.
 
Broxtowe was Labour from 1997-2010 when Nick Palmer was the MP, who many of you will remember.  Anna Soubry won the seat for the Conservative Party in 2010 and again in 2015 and 2017.  Earlier this year Anna resigned from the Conservative Party.  She is contesting this election as “The Independent Group for Change” candidate.
 
The full list of candidates standing in Broxtowe can be found here: https://www.broxtowe.gov.uk/media/7062/statement-of-persons-nominated-and-notice-of-poll.pdf
 
So in Broxtowe you can choose 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
 
I approached Anna, Greg, Kat and Darren Henry (via the Conservative Association in Broxtowe) to let me have 200 words stating why they they think they would make the best candidate for Broxtowe.  The Conservatives failed to respond.  The statements for Anna, Greg and Kat are shown below.
I did not ask the other candidates for statements primarily because I did not find it that easy to locate any contact details.
 
Kat Boettge – Green Party
Kat Boettge is originally from Germany but came to the UK 20 years ago. She has been working as a psychotherapist within NHS services.
Kat was the East Midlands lead candidate for the European elections in 2014 and 2019. You may recognise her from Wife Swap Brexit Special where she argued passionately to remain in the EU. “The Green Party want to remain in the EU to strengthen our fight on issues like climate change and social injustice.”
Kat has been Councillor in Kimberley and has successfully managed to protect the Chapel on the Hill by getting it listed. She has contributed to the neighbourhood plan in Kimberley which has helped to prevent development on Green Belt land.
“Climate catastrophe must be a priority. It is the greatest threat to humanity. We in the Green Party have been fighting to tackle climate change for decades now. We must act now.”
“A vote for the Greens is a vote for the reform of our broken political system. Currently the Conservatives and Labour are an embarrassment to our country. It’s time to move away from the two-party system, it’s time to do politics differently.
 
Greg Marshall – The Labour Party candidate
I’m standing to represent Broxtowe because I believe I am the truly local candidate who is best placed to represent our community.  I say this because I was born here, went to school here and now live in and serve on the local Borough Council. 
Representing the place I call home for nearly 10 years has been a vocation rather than a career opportunity and stepping-stone to parliament. I’m definitely not the kind of professional politician that is all too common in modern politics and we should be wary of anyone trying to use Broxtowe for their own ends. 
Throughout my life I have been involved in activities involving my visiting every part of Broxtowe.  Long before I got involved in politics I used to play local football regularly often playing against Kimberley Miners Welfare. But those days are gone.
Since I was first elected to Broxtowe Borough Council I have always enjoyed coming to and working hard for Kimberley.  It’s incredibly important that our towns gain there fair share of investment and that the whole of Broxtowe prospers rather than just the south of the Borough. A great example is The Kimberley Jam which has now become an unmissable event in our calendar. I love attending and hearing the many acts that perform at the great pubs and venues in the town. As your MP I will always support plans that put Kimberley firmly on the map.
 
 
Anna Soubry – The Independent Group for Change
I am standing on my record of hard work for everyone in Broxtowe and my long held principles and values.  Our country is divided, neither Boris Johnson or Jeremy Corbyn are fit to be our Prime Minister and both main parties are in the grip of the political extremes. I have stood up to the threats and abuse and stuck to my principles. I believe we need, more than ever, MPs in Parliament who will hold back the extremes and speak truth to power from the moderate, centre ground of British politics. I believe this is why people across Broxtowe of all political views are backing me in this election – even Leave voters who don’t share my views on Brexit.  The Lib Dems have stood aside for me and I have won the support of senior Conservatives like Ken Clarke and lifelong Labour voters. I will always be your voice in Parliament and continue to fight for Kimberley. I believe I have worked hard for the town, supporting the Town Council, traders and helping secure the future of the Chapel. There’s more to be done and I would be honoured if I were re-elected on December 12th.
 
Party manifestos
 
I’ve listed below links to the Conservative, Green, Labour, Lib Dem and SNP details as follows:
 
The Conservative Party manifesto – can be found by clicking on the following link: https://vote.conservatives.com/our-plan
The Green Party manifesto is at this link: https://campaigns.greenparty.org.uk/manifesto/
The Labour Party manifesto is here: https://labour.org.uk/manifesto/
The Liberal Democrat manifesto: https://www.libdems.org.uk/plan

The Scottish Nationalist Party manifesto: https://www.snp.org/general-election-2019/

 

For me personally this General Election (on my daughter Laura’s 28th birthday) seems mightily strange.  For every year since being able to vote I have campaigned vigorously for Labour – as an activist, cllr, and parliamentary candidate.  As many of you know I resigned from Labour in February this year – see link below:

1981 – 2019 – why 38 years in the Labour Party for me has today come to an end

I am not a member of any politcial party, and remain in Independent councillor in Broxtowe.

I have been asked to re-join Labour, join the Liberal Democrats and the Conservative Party.  I have politely declined all three requests.

I remain a member of the trade union GMB  and am supporter of trade union involvement and engagement to help achieve a more productive and safer workplace.

The national policy issues I am interested in include:

  1. Increasing power from Westminster to the most appropriate level, trusting and involving local communities
  2. Giving every child the best start in life through investment in early years provision
  3. Electoral Reform
  4. Fairer & genuinely re-distributive Taxation (looking at the idea of a Land Value Tax)
  5. Public transport investment
  6. Preventative measures to reduce health inequalities
  7. Promoting renewable energy
  8. Restorative Justice

Some of you have asked whether the result in Broxtowe on 12 December will affect me as an Independent Cllr.  I was re-elected in May this year, with the current term of office expiring in 2023.  My work and role as cllr therefore carries on regardless of the result.

 

3)   Interesting reading

And finally, some reading you may find thought provoking.    You might not agree with everything that’s written, but it may prompt some wider thinking and stimulate discussions:

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.
