County Council Highways Repairs Website: - NCC highways website was launched in 2023 The site allows residents to search across the county to find where resurfacing and patching schemes have taken place or are planned; just enter the area, postcode or street address to see works in any location. The site gives details of the various works and, in many cases, includes an image of the completed works. As a newly developed site, it covers improvements delivered since spring 2022 only; these include full resurfacing works, the ongoing programme of mechanised patching and other improvements such as microasphalt works. The site is also accessible through the MyNotts App, and is planned to be updated weekly.

Residents can continue to report highways issues for inspection and repair, by telephone to the NCC contact centre 0300 500 8080 or online at or by using the MyNotts app for mobile phones (download free). These three routes all create an immediate report for investigation by the highways teams. Members of the public should report all highways matters direct to the County Council this way, as soon as possible, not channel them in the first instance, via the parish council or wait and bring them up verbally at parish council meetings, all this does is delay matters, add extra levels of admin, when in many cases the item could have been sorted asap by the County Council.

National Grid Pylons Consultation

  • National Grid Consultation – North Humber to High Marnham Power Lines - National Grid Electricity Transmission is consulting on proposals for upgrading the electricity network between the North Humber and High Marnham. The existing power lines do not have sufficient capacity for all the new sources of electricity that National Grid expect to connect to the network over the next ten years and beyond. proposals include building approximately 90 kilometres (km) of new 400 kilovolt (kV) overhead electricity transmission line between two new substations – one to the north of Hull near Creyke Beck and one at High Marnham.

Between 1 June 2023 and 27 July 2023 National Grid are holding our first stage of public consultation on their early proposals. More »

New pylons and conductors (electrical wires) would be located along the route of the proposed new overhead line. National Grid are considering the use of traditional 400 kV lattice steel pylons, which are typically 50 metres in height, with approximately three pylons located per kilometre on a straight section of the route. The aim is for the proposed upgrade to be operational by 2031.

National Grid have already have carried out engineering and environmental assessments to identify an emerging preferred corridor, within which the new reinforcement could be located. They have also considered aspects such as residential properties, existing overhead lines and sensitive features from a biodiversity and ecology, historical

environment and heritage, and landscape and visual impact perspective.

National Grid want to hear directly from the public on their views, Feedback from this consultation, along with technical work and our ongoing environmental assessment, will help to shape their plans. National Grid will share updated proposals at a second stage of consultation planned for autumn 2024, where we will present more developed plans. Following this, they will finalise proposals and will report all feedback and on responses to your comments in a Consultation Report which will be submitted with National Grid's application for development consent. The consultation runs until 27th July. The public and Parish Councils alike are encouraged to send all their views and ask questions by contacting National Grid at:


Postal Address: send a letter to Freepost NH TO HM (no stamp or further address details are required)

Phone: You can also get in touch to speak with a member of their team by telephone on 0800 051 4430. Lines are open Monday to Friday 9:00am – 5:30pm.

If you feel your land may be affected by these proposals, National Grid's dedicated Land Team will be pleased to speak with you.

Police Neighbourhood Alert System

Police Neighbourhood Alert System

The Police wish to share this with as many residents as possible:

Rural communities are being encouraged to form a united front against crime – by signing up to a new local email alert system.

In response to local feedback, Nottinghamshire Police is adopting a bespoke rural Neighbourhood Alert email platform, which sends regular warnings about the latest offences and emerging criminal trends. More »

We are encouraging residents, farmers and other business owners to learn more about what is happening in their area by signing up for updates.

The software, already used by thousands of people in the county, provides hyper-local, street-level updates to residents about what is happening in their area.

I am asking as many people as possible to sign up as we will be using the system as our main method of sending updates.

Can I also urge residents to continue to immediately report all offences and suspicious activity by phone or on-line in order to build up a clearer local picture about current activities and trends.

For example, if you are a farmer who uses a quadbike for work and a similar devices has been stolen from another farm nearby, we'll issue a bespoke warning to you so you can safeguard your investment.

All you need to do is sign up to Neighbourhood Alerts using the link below and ensure you have selected "rural matters" in the dropdown menu for specific trend updates.

"If you are already registered, you can also select specific trend updates you want to see by clicking on the 'messages' option and selecting 'which type of messages'."

If you require any help or advice regarding this let me know.

  • A totally free service - no incoming text or phone charges.
  • Member area where they have total control of their message settings – they can choose to receive alerts via email, text message or voice message and why types of message they wish to receive e.g. burglary alerts and general crime prevention messages.
  • They can unsubscribe at any time, there are no contracts or obligations.
  • Members receive information about crime trends, incidents and appeals from authorised police officers and staff.
  • They can report suspicious behaviour (not crime) and receive updates and responses about their information report.

Many thanks for your anticipated support and understanding,

If anyone does not feel confident in signing themselves up to this service but would like to receive the updates then please ask that they get in touch with me and I can provide the support which would usually entail me visiting the house as I cannot complete this by telephone.
