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 www.nottinghamshire.gov.uk/top-up or contact the team at enquiries.broadband@nottscc.gov.uk

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.
