Popular Cut-Through Closed this Week

Motorists who enjoy shaving a little off their journey time by taking the estate route between Wilford Road and Loughborough Road in Ruddington may be disappointed this week. Gas work by Cadent on behalf of Nottinghamshire County Council means that St John’s Road will be closed to traffic from this Monday (23rd April) for up to five days. This closure is necessary because the gas main which needs to be disconnected runs right down the middle of the road from the former Bostock’s DIY shop at 70, Wilford Road – recently…

What About OUR Ruddy Road?

Residents in the Brookside Road area of Ruddington were left bewildered after Nottinghamshire County Council‘s contractors upped and left before completing the promised and desperately needed work on their crumbling roads. The bad weather had meant the planned pothole filling work on Camelot Street and repair and resurfacing of the rest of the estate was slightly behind schedule – with only Grange Avenue and Fairham Close being completed before the weekend. As the snow thawed on Monday morning, householders in the other streets obeyed the new signs; to keep their roads…

Ruddington’s Roads Resurfaced

The yellow signs are up heralding the long-awaited road repairs which are desperately needed throughout a couple of our village housing estates.

Revised Asher Lane Housing Plans

Last December we reported how Space Foods Ltd had decided to appeal to the Planning Inspectorate against Rushcliffe Borough Council’s refusal to allow it outline planning permission for 175 new homes on Green Belt land it owns south of Musters Road – with access off Asher Lane. Those proposals were lodged in January 2017 – after a previous application for 250 houses on the same site was withdrawn two years earlier. The Borough Council refused this second application on THREE main grounds: 1) Noise. The developers didn’t indicate how they would deal with the noise…

Camelot Construction Complaints

The name of a contractor building new homes in our village has recently become “mud” for some residents and traders on a Ruddington estate!

Two existing houses were cleared from the current site which otherwise used to be a green, open space.
