Brook Lane crossing proposal

Residents may be aware that we have been campaigning for some time to secure improved pedestrian crossing facilities on Brook Lane at Bramley. Residents in the Gaunt Road area in particular had told us that they were worried about crossing this busy stretch of road as traffic heads to and from the ‘Elton’ roundabout. We are pleased therefore that after some consideration the council has brought forward a proposal for a new pedestrian refuge. We’ve copied the detail of the plan above (click on the image for a larger version).

Raising awareness of suicide prevention

Through our local Area Assembly, Wickersley ward councillors have been supporting the “Don’t let silence kill you” campaign over the last few months. The campaign aims to encourage people to speak out and seek help when they need it, and to be more confident in supporting others. Towards the end of last year, through the Area Assembly we organised a training event for people who may come into contact with people needing mental health “first aid”.

Do you love where you live?

We were out in Bramley recently with a number of volunteers, cleaning litter along Bawtry Road for our Bramley Big Spring Clean.

The day was one of dozens across the Rotherham borough as people joined in with the Great British Spring Clean. If you’re able to spare an hour every now and again to help keep our area looking its best, or you would like to organise your own litter pick, you can join the council’s Love Where You Live team.

Markfield Drive estate improvements & Fleming Way park


The on-going improvements to the Markfield Drive estate in Flanderwell have reached the next milestone with the completion of the additional parking spaces that tenants and residents asked for.

Small scale environmental improvements, the removal of some small walls, new foot rails, new paths and trees, had already been undertaken. The latest works have also seen changes to the disused “triangle” at the end of Mark Grove (pictured above).

The next stage of the works includes improvements to the children’s play area – the proposal below is open for comments until the end of this week.

UPDATE: There will be a drop in session at Flanderwell School for anyone who wishes to see and comment on the park proposals on Tuesday April 4th, between 2.45pm and 4.30pm.

Council tenants on the estate will also benefit in future from new fencing.

The works are funded from council housing rents in order to ensure that the estate meets the standard set out in the council’s policy.
