Rushcliffe Borough Council Labour Group

Members for Rushcliffe Borough Council were elected in 2019 and are the largest Labour Group in Rushcliffe for 20 years!

Who we are

Our History

We want a public site like this so we can share news of council events, our opinions on topical matters, and attempt to get more people interested in local politics. We’d love to connect to Rushcliffe residents, local Labour Party members, and anyone interested in making decision making an open and inclusive process.

We hope with the help of this site we can get more people to come forward at local elections, to stand as Councillors, and to engage with their community to make a difference.

Use of the site we created has been gifted to the constituency Labour Party to share views and grow our movement.

Changes at RBC

We had our Labour Group AGM last month and there have been some big changes in our group. Firstly we need to congratulate Penny on her election to Nottinghamshire County Council. She will be representing the people of West Bridgford North and we feel very lucky to have a county representative in our group making … Continue reading Changes at RBC

We Need Councillors to Represent What We Want for the Future

Nottinghamshire County Council is failing to deliver on targets for environment, and it’s not clear that the current Councillors really care about actually making things better. Councillors like to be seen planting a tree here, or opening an electric charging point there, but when it comes to it: these are just small, corporatised attempts of … Continue reading We Need Councillors to Represent What We Want for the Future

Radcliffe Needs a Councillor who Looks Ahead at what Residents will Need in the Future

Affordable housing is in short supply, and there are plans to build as many as 1000 homes in Radcliffe which will dramatically affect life in the village. Such a massive population influx is going to have a big impact on Radcliffe life over the next few years: but it is not clear that our Councillors … Continue reading Radcliffe Needs a Councillor who Looks Ahead at what Residents will Need in the Future

New Schools on Regatta Way

For many years the need for school places in Rushcliffe has been growing and schools have struggled to keep up. With so many new homes being built, it has got to the point that many children are now unable to get into their local school and are having to travel out-of-area, away from their friends. … Continue reading New Schools on Regatta Way

Our Council Should Support the NHS to Improve Radcliffe’s Health Centre

The Health Centre in Radcliffe is already too small, and with 1000 homes due to be built in the next few years, everybody agrees that we need an expanded facility. New, modern Health Centre facilities would be really great for Radcliffe but it is really important also to think about where it should be and … Continue reading Our Council Should Support the NHS to Improve Radcliffe’s Health Centre

Nottinghamshire Council Should do more to keep our National Cycle Routes Safe

Holme lane forms part of Nottinghamshire’s National Cycle Route 15 and if the condition of this road wasn’t so terrible it could have been a beautiful route away from the A52 for cyclists, and walkers who want to visit Skylarks Nature reserve and the National Watersports Centre. Unfortunately, many are prevented from being able to … Continue reading Nottinghamshire Council Should do more to keep our National Cycle Routes Safe

We Should Invest to Improve Radcliffe’s Library

Even though Councils are required by law to provide “comprehensive” Library services, it is down to local decision makers what this actually means. Some of Nottinghamshire’s Libraries have received substantial investment to improve facilities, but our overall Library budget has been slashed over the last few years. This means that the strain of cuts has … Continue reading We Should Invest to Improve Radcliffe’s Library

Social Care

Last year showed that we can’t expect companies to cope with organizing social care on their own. We all know of carers who have to drive backwards and forwards across the county because of a lack of organization. This fragmentation is very wasteful- waste that we can’t afford when budgets have been decimated by central … Continue reading Social Care
