Water Leak Disrupts High Street

Ruddington drivers, traders and shoppers are being warned they may face unexpected disruption in our village centre – following a burst water main today. ‘No Parking’ restrictions and four-way temporary traffic signals have been put in place at the junction of Church Street and Easthorpe Street whilst Severn Trent Water identifies and repairs the leak. It’s being anticipated the problem could take until this Wednesday 18th May*, to fix – although Severn Trent is hoping to complete its work sooner. Meantime, residents and visitors can expect the disruption to continue…

Beware Ruddington Road Restrictions

A weekend of parking prohibition along Mere Way, a morning of temporary traffic lights on High Street and a further complete closure of Dutton’s Hill are among the scheduled works liable to cause disruption over the coming days and weeks in and around Ruddington.

Benwell Daykin’s Housing Market Update

The BBC recently reported that the average UK house price hit a fresh record in April but that growth is set to slow this year as inflation and interest rates rise, writes Nick Aston of Ruddington’s Benwell Daykin Estate & Letting Agents. The Halifax said house prices rose 1.1% in April compared with March. While it said prices had grown for 10 months in a row – the longest run since 2016 – it said “the headwinds facing the wider economy cannot be ignored.” Hikes in the cost of living and higher interest rates will squeeze…

More Village Centre Road Closures

Further complete closures of Ruddington’s main shopping street and Dutton’s Hill are among the roadworks liable to cause disruption over the next few months in and around our village. Firstly, there’s Easter Day work (Sunday 17th April) by Severn Trent for repair and maintenance on High Street, meaning the road will be closed throughout the day with diversions in operation. Nottingham City Transport says between 08:00-17:00 its Green 10/C service will divert: turning left onto Easthorpe St, right on the A60 and right onto Kirk Lane (10) or straight on…

Easter Roadworks on Loughborough Road

After a number of roadworks around Ruddington at the start of the year, there’s another ‘lull’ in scheduled highway work around our village until this spring. Find details of temporary traffic lights due to emergency gas work on Clifton Road >>HERE<<. However, those of us who access Ruddington or the Business Park via the A60 are likely to be dismayed at the prospect of yet more disruptive roadworks starting near the Mere Way junction from the beginning of April and lasting right through the Easter holidays!

Symmetry for Ruddington’s High Street

For the past couple of years there have been rather more businesses on one side of Ruddington’s main shopping street than the other, thanks to one or two departing traders and some major shop redevelopment work at the former Barclay & Cook store. Now that the last vacant shop unit on the eastern side of High Street is filled – the one previously occupied by Nottingham Building Society – we will get some ‘Symmetry’: not least because that’s the name of the Chiropractic business which will be starting there soon,…

Happy New Year from Team Benwell Daykin

The last twelve months have seen unprecedented times for many of us – and estate agents are no different says Benwell Daykin. This year has seen the property market flourish like never before. A continued increase in house prices and demand far outstripping that of supply are considered to be the main reasons for the continued robust price growth. Average UK house prices defied expectations and continued to climb over the last few months despite the phasing out of the government’s stamp duty holiday at the end of September. Nationwide,…
