A Cumberland Close Compromise?

New proposals to resolve access issues for residents in a Ruddington cul-de-sac, whilst still enabling some parking there for those who need it, have been put out for consultation. As RUDDINGTON.info reported in August, after numerous complaints about inconsiderate parking and damage to vehicles, there was a previous consultation by Via East Midlands (on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council) which proposed prohibiting all parking on Cumberland Close between 9am and 5pm every day. This caused dismay among some residents and businesses along Easthorpe Street who have no off-street parking of their own…

Good News for Ruddington Recyclers?

Village residents who need to visit Ruddington’s nearest household waste and recycling centre will no longer have to book beforehand to do so as of next month. Now that wider COVID-19 restrictions having been eased, Nottinghamshire County Council has announced the advance booking system at its West Bridgford facility on Rugby Road will be removed from Monday November 1st. It was way back in September 2020 that the Council introduced a “trial” system whereby people needed to secure a slot to visit the site. This requirement has stayed in place for…

No Traffic Lights for our Village Centre

Ruddington residents and village Councillors are expressing dismay that one of the key planning conditions for the approval of 175 houses down Asher Lane has now been abandoned by Rushcliffe Borough Council without a clear alternative. At a meeting of its Planning Committee yesterday, Councillors voted 7 to 2 in favour of allowing Avant Homes  to continue letting residents move into its ‘Wilbur Chase’ development – despite not all the stipulated highway improvements having yet been completed. The original planning conditions were imposed to avoid worsening the peak-time traffic congestion through our village…

Pay Parking Plans Rejected

Ruddington Parish Councillors have again said “no” to imposing a time restriction or long stay parking charges in their Church Street Car Park. As we reported earlier this week, following an approach from Ruddington Co-op, the idea was revisited at last night’s full Parish Council Meeting (October 12th). Although parking would have remained free for up to two hours (with the two options put forward either making that the maximum stay or imposing parking charges after that) Councillors voted unanimously against both parking proposals by Horizon Parking Ltd which it had made…

Ruddington Co-op’s Pay Parking Proposal

Village Councillors are to revisit the possibility of charging for parking in their Church Street Car Park following an approach from our Co-op. Whilst parking there is currently free and unlimited, the foodstore’s proposal – suggesting two possible options – is on the agenda for Tuesday night’s Ruddington Parish Council Meeting (12th October). It comes after the retailer noticed that the turnover of cars in the 39 marked car park bays is very low, with some vehicles appearing to remain there all day. Although all the spaces in front of…
