News From Anna Soubry MP 23 July 2016

Anna Soubry MPIn the short time since my last email newsletter we have gained a new Prime Minister in Theresa May, who looks set to be a great leader of our country, we have a new Government and following my resignation as a Minister, I have returned to the back benches.

I can assure you that whatever the speculation – this was very much my decision. I am hugely looking forward to representing you from the back row of the chamber and to speaking with more freedom on my long held views on Britain’s place in the world and the positive benefits of immigration.

I will hold debates and question Ministers on important constituency matters and my priorities will be as follows. We need to learn the lessons of the tram works, protect our Green Belt whilst providing more new homes, regenerate our town centres, improve mental health services and continue to uphold the Armed Forces Covenant.

I will be taking a longer than usual break this summer (about three weeks) but be assured I will answering emails and in touch with the excellent constituency team – if my family allows me! So, unless there is important news, my next email newsletter will be in early September.

Enjoy the summer

As ever,

Anna

A610 – A Better Road and “Corridor for Growth”

AJU1I hosted a meeting yesterday to discuss improvements to the A610. The congestion at what I still call the Ikea roundabout, and the surrounding roads, gets worse, despite efforts by Notts County Council and local Borough Councillors.

There is no simple nor cheap solution, however, there is great potential for economic development and housing along the A610 especially at Eastwood and into Derbyshire. Unlocking the potential would go hand in hand with improving the access to and from the A610 at Giltbrook and Awsworth and reducing congestion at Nuthall roundabout. We are in the early stages and I will keep you updated.

Get on with it! Kimberley Brewery site and Barton’s Plans Update

My thanks to everyone who attended yesterday afternoon’s round table on housing. I brought together a group of developers who have planning permission for almost 1,000 new homes in Broxtowe and planners from the Borough Council. Council Leader Richard Jackson and Councillor Tony Harper also took part. It was a robust and frank meeting – a number of problems were highlighted; we resolved some and I will be taking up a number of matters with the new Government. I am confident we will soon see the much needed development of the Kimberley Brewery site and speed up the plans at Bartons in Beeston, where I have my constituency office.

Awsworth Primary in Parliament

I am always impressed by the children from Awsworth Primary - bright, engaged, enthusiastic, full of character and so smart! They are a real credit to their parents, carers and of course the great staff at Awsworth.

I am always impressed by the children from Awsworth Primary – bright, engaged, enthusiastic, full of character and so smart! They are a real credit to their parents, carers and of course the great staff at Awsworth.

I was delighted to meet pupils from Awsworth Primary School who visited Parliament this week. As usual the standard of questions was at the highest level and I was very proud to be their MP.

It was my first trip to the new Education Centre which is an outstanding facility next to the House of Lords. Parliament offers an excellent service to schools and colleges and I provide details to all our head teachers at the beginning of the school year. I know that those schools who have visited Parliament have thoroughly enjoyed it and found it well worth the effort.

Please urge your school to contact me and we will put them in touch with the Education Service at Parliament – or follow the link below

Bramcote Hills Golf Course Decision

I am very pleased that Broxtowe Borough Council’s Planning Committee has rejected plans for a development on Bramcote Hills Golf Course. This is an important and much valued green open space and the Committee faced a difficult decision given the owners sought permission for a new care home with 60 bungalows and flats for the elderly. I am pleased that Bramcote’s three Conservative Borough Councillors were tenacious in their opposition to the plans.

Toton Fly Tipping – Result

AJU3Earth banks and bridle gates are two measures that will help prevent further fly tipping at Toton Sidings and work to install them will begin shortly. The landowner has removed a huge amount of illegal waste dumped some months ago and discussions continue about how best to secure access at Bessell Lane.

My thanks to constituents who contacted me about fly tipping at the Sidings – I immediately contacted both Broxtowe Borough Council and the police. Please don’t hesitate to report similar incidents to me wherever ever you live in the constituency.
Campaign Emails

I have recently received a lot of emails from people who have signed up to on line campaigns. Unfortunately, they have not included their name or address so I don’t know if the sender is a constituent. Strict parliamentary protocol prevents MP’s from responding to non constituents when they should contact their own MP. So if you don’t include your name and address I am sorry you won’t get a reply but I do post responses to current campaigns on my web site annasoubry.org.uk.

Congratulations to Beeston Civic Society on their guide to the many Blue Plaques they have installed mainly in the south of the constituency. A tremendous amount of effort has been put into the preparation, production and instillation of all 34 Blue Plaques and you can view the booklet on line.
