Where is the crossing that cost £40,000?


Last year it was agreed by the Planning Committee at Broxtowe Borough Council that as part of the new McCarthy and Stone Development on Hickings Lane a Pedestrian Crossing would be installed on Hickings Lane.


So where is it?


The agreement was that no one will be allowed to move into the development until the Pedestrian Crossing was installed. It was also agreed it would be installed between Washington Drive and Ewe Lamb Lane.

Now speaking to McCarthy and Stone they have said they have paid Broxtowe Borough Council over £40,000 to have the Pedestrian Crossing installed.

The first people are set to move into the excellent development tomorrow yet the crossing is not there.


Stapleford Councillor Richard MacRae who requested the Pedestrian Crossing has asked Broxtowe Borough Council numerous times about this Crossing and says all he gets told is that it is being discussed.

A major concern is why has this not been installed as agreed by the Planning Committee before residents move into the development as was the agreed requirement.

Nottinghamshire County Council who deal with Highways issues have also been asked about this as have both the County Councillors and neither of the County Councillors have responded to any emails they have been sent.

So where is the Pedestrian Crossing which has been paid for.

    Oh Dear! I have friends moving in this month, what will they do if told no one can move in because there isn’t a crossing, their house is sold!

    • Councillor Richard MacRae says:

      People have already started to move in. McCarthy and Stone have given the money to Broxtowe Borough Council to pay for the Pedestrian Crossing.

      So where is it?

      What is the point in having agreements made at Planning Committee if they are completely ignored.

      So is it now okay for Aldi to build the much needed Supermarket and ignore the agreed requirement to build 10 new Houses first as it seems agreements can be completely ignored.

      Both County Councillors have been made aware of this and neither has had the decency to respond to the me emails I have sent them. In fact they never reply.
