Statement from Councillor Steve Carr, Deputy Leader of Broxtowe Borough Council

I am becoming more and more frustrated at how inept and indecisive our national Government are.

Many of you will know that the decision was announced on Monday that Nottingham, Broxtowe, Rushcliffe and Gedling were to be placed into Tier 3 from midnight on Wednesday. We were promised that we would be given the go ahead to advise people of the implications for them by Tuesday morning.

Broxtowe finally go that go-ahead earlier Tuesday evening. Broxtowe Council published them on their website at the agreed time of 7.30pm. 20 minutes later the council was contacted by the Government to advise us that they were having a rethink given the rising infection rates in Ashfield and Mansfield and there is to be further meeting on Wednesday Morning.

This is totally unacceptable to those individuals and business in the Borough who are waiting to find out how their lives will be affected.

These constant delays are putting local lives at risk as infection rates in Broxtowe continue to rise.
