Better Broadband for Nottinghamshire

Nottinghamshire County Council have invested £750,000 in order to help deliver high-speed broadband to the most rural parts of the county. The £750,000 investment is to support the government’s ‘Gigabit Broadband Voucher Scheme’ which delivers subsidy to rural homes and businesses without access to high-speed broadband to help deploy a full-fibre network. Under the scheme residential premises are eligible for up to £1,500 and small and medium sized businesses are eligible for up to £3,500 through a registered supplier when part of a group scheme. The Notts top-up doubles the value of the voucher, meaning rural residential premises are eligible for up to £3,000, and small and medium sized rural business are eligible for up to £7,000. For further details on the scheme and to see if your property is eligible please visit or contact the team at

Flooding Report by Ruth Edwards, MP

Last winter, Storm Dennis hit Rushcliffe hard. Our towns and villages were cut-off by flooding after being hit by the storm. Homes were damaged and lives disrupted.
Since then, we have met with local councils and residents across the constituency and have compiled a report outlining the action needed to tackle flooding in Rushcliffe.

Latest Covid -19 Restrictions – Alert Level High

Please see latest Covid-19 Restrictions – Alert Level High. There is a lot of confusion that residents think that because they have an LE postcode that they are in Leicestershire, this is not the case, the postcode is for Royal Mail use only. If you pay your rates to Rushcliffe then you are in Nottinghamshire.

Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan

Have your say on the future development of Greater Nottingham with the new Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan here
Many local residents will not have seen this yet.
It is Rushcliffe Council looking at options for future housing developments as part of the Greater Nottingham Strategic Plan and included in the plan as a possibility for a separate development of significant size is an area adjacent to NoS.
The area runs north of the railway line on its bottom side, bordered by the A6006 on the west and north sides and runs across pretty much to Stanford on Soar to the railway line on the east side. The area is significant and might be of a similar size to say East Leake.
The NoS Parish Council will be responding to the consultation document, but of course local residents can directly have your say as well.
The area in the plan is referred to as R17 in case you want to dig into the documents.
Closing date Monday 14th September 2020
