anna-soubry-mpHello again,   There is a lot to report on – so stand by for a lengthy newsletter!   With all good wishes as ever,   Anna 

Planning Inspector overturns (another)  democratic, local decision 

The Planning Inspector has over turned a decision by Broxtowe Borough Council to refuse planning permission for development on Bramcote Golf Course – a supposedly specially protected green open space. The decision has been condemned by the Borough Council leader, Richard Jackson. Richard rightly points out that in refusing the application for a retirement village, the planning committee of the Council took into account the views of local residents and the adverse impact the development will have on Bramcote Ridge and Bramcote Hills. The Council will now consider if they can in effect appeal the Inspectors decision by way of a Judicial Review, but that would be very expensive.  Continue reading

Press Release from Broxtowe Borough Council relating to Former Golf Course

A Government Inspector has overturned Broxtowe Borough Council’s decision to refuse a planning application at the former Bramcote Hills Golf Course site.   

The Council’s Planning Committee felt that proposed development would have an adverse impact on the open and undeveloped nature of the site, which would detract from the picturesque surroundings of Bramcote Ridge and Bramcote Hills as a whole and the application was refused in July 2016.   Continue reading

Press Release from Anna Soubry MP

ao9rBroxtowe MP Anna Soubry will tomorrow (Tuesday 28th February) present a petition in Parliament calling for anti-speeding measures on the A52 in Bramcote. Local campaigner Tony Smith organised the petition which has attracted over 1,600 names in just a few weeks. Tony will be in the House of Commons to see the petition being presented by Anna in the Chamber.

tonyTony Smith started the petition late last year after two men died in a crash on the A52 between the Bramcote roundabout and Priory Island. It’s believed excessive speed caused the accident and residents complained that racing along the dual carriageway is a frequent problem.

Anna said “the police have recognised there is a very real problem with cars racing along the A52. Mobile cameras are not sufficient to stop this dangerous practise. The road has got a reputation that speeding cars will not be detected and reported for prosecution. Permanent cameras could well solve the problem.”

Highways England is reviewing safety on the A52. Tony Smith said “Getting the petition presented in Parliament indicates how important this is to people in Bramcote and Beeston. Highways England must now take action”.
