Northfield Lane pavement works

Works have taken place over the last week to repair the damaged pavement along the far end of Northfield Lane, opposite the entrance to Fleming Way. Earlier this year much of the adjacent pavement had been treated with a surface treament tehcnique as part of a council trial intended to extend the life of the footpath, and subsequently we had heard from residents who were worried about this stretch – which was already more badly decayed. We were pleased to be able to facilitate these further works. Cllr Ellis is pictured on the site.

Consultation on changes to household bin collections


As the council faces up to yet another year of budget cuts imposed by the government, we continue to need to re-examine all services to ensure they are sustainable and efficient. At the same time, the government has a target to increase the level of recycling nationally to a level higher than we currently achieve in Rotherham.

As a result, we have brought forward proposals to change the way that household waste is collected and these are currently out to public consultation. The proposals have been summarised in the video above, produced by the council.

If they are introduced we expect these changes to save more than £1 million a year every year over the next decade.

You can read more about the proposals, have your say and feed back about your experiences by clicking here. You can also speak to council representatives at a number of face-to-face drop in sessions. The closest ones to our area will be:

  • Wednesday, 6th December, 2017 10am to 2pm at Riverside House, Main St, Rotherham town centre, S60 1QY
  • Friday, 22nd December, 2017 9am to 1pm at Maltby CDT Wesley Centre, 14 Blyth Rd, Maltby, S66 8JD
  • Wednesday, 3rd January, 2018 10am to 2pm at Riverside House ,Main St, Rotherham town centre, S60 1QY

Any changes to collections will not be introduced until the second half of 2018 at the earliest.

Proposal to change to taxi arrangements opposite the Tanyard

The council is considering experimental changes to allow taxis at certain times to use the service road outside the Three Horse Shoes pub and the bus stop outside the Olive Lounge following representations from both the police and taxi drivers.

The proposal would mean introducing hackney carriage stands as shown in the image above (click the image for a larger version):

– A taxi stand operating 10pm to 4am will be created on the Bawtry Road Service Road (outside the Three Horse Shoes)

The existing bus stop outside the Olive Lounge will be used solely by buses between 4am and 10pm, however:-

– The bay will be shared with 2 hackney carriage taxis that will be permitted to stand here between 10pm and 4am with buses still utilising the rest of the bay.

– From midnight to 4am the remainder of the bus stop lay by will be available to be used by hackney carriage taxis.

The proposal is to trial these arrangements for 18 months to evaluate their effectiveness in managing traffic in the area.

Please contact us if you have comments or concerns about the proposal.

Brook Lane pedestrian refuge

The long-awaited pedestrian refuge on Brook Lane at Bramley has now been installed, responding to the concerns that residents expressed about being able to cross this busy stretch of road.

Recent resident surveys have continued to report worries about the speed of vehicles heading towards the village and we are looking at what might be possible to further improve road safety.
