Improved rail connectivity

The proposal to open the Maid Marion line to Toton offers an opportunity to introduce tram train technology. Having a tram connection from the town centre to Sutton Parkway would improve connectivity from the town centre, instead of having to drive to Sutton Parkway.

Cycleways

If Toton Strategic Location for Growth (TSLFG) is developed broadly as envisaged in https://www.emcouncils.gov.uk/write/East_Midlands_HS2_Growth_Strategy_-_September_2017.pdf, residents of Stapleford will need to travel to TSLFG to work, and residents of TSLFG will want to travel to (regenerated) Stapleford to shop. If developments within both TSLFG and Stapleford comply with Broxtowe’s Policies 14 & 15 – as published […]

Secure cycle-parking

Residents should be able to cycle to Stapleford’s shops, and then park their bikes where they won’t be stolen, while they do their shopping. How about putting some secure cycle-parking facilities near Stapleford’s shops? This could be done, for example, by extending the https://www.transportnottingham.com/cycling/park-your-bike/ system into Stapleford town-centre.

We need a centre

The town needs a central place, square or some such. High streets are changing. I don’t think people will use things like butchers and veg shops unless they can compete price wise. What does work is creating a space people can wander in. A destination space. Food, drinks, leisure.

Green corridor nature reserve

Let’s take the opportunity to be ambitious. I’d like to see use made of the green corridor which runs parallel and to the west of the high street from Mill Rd down to the railway bridge at Sandiacre. We could have a nature reserve, a couple of bridges over the Erewash to access land on […]

Town centre

Pedestrianise the high street this would hopefully encourage people to linger longer while shopping with not having to keep crossing a busy road. It would also cut down on air pollution in the area.

Park.

Maybe a splash pad for children to enjoy in stapleford instead of having to go to long Eaton or where ever. Bring people to stapleford.

Bins.

More rubbish bins in stapleford and more dog poop bins for all the dog poop around. Maybe put poop bags out on lampposts for those who haven’t got any bags to pick it up, as it’s getting really bad.

Suggestion

A place for children/teens with additional needs. Although we already have youth groups a lot of them don’t feel like they can go down to bullying they get for being different. I believe it’ll encourage them to be independent as well as getting them out of the house to be able to enjoy themselves

Suggestions

Make Hickings Lane a better place for all to use and not just a place for playing football, sort out the parking on Hickings Lane too. A bigger pavilion come community centre is needed and let everyone use it.

Music Celebration

Work with other towns in Broxtowe like Beeston to perhaps extend events such as Oxjam into other high streets to showcase local musical talent and to attract in visitors

Stapleford Arts and Crafts Forum

Invest in the community spaces to pull together the wider arts and crafts community to deliver an event or two each year showcasing the local cultural talent. Perhaps a small unit to be used as a gallery (allowing sales of art work?) alongside a temporary annual event (running for a couple of weeks) that could […]

Mini Market

A mini market would be ideal for Stapleford. It will really bring that community spirt back and improve footfall for other businesses. Along with entertainment (music/shows/dancing) nothing brightens up your shopping experience more with some good old fashioned entertainment.

Pub/restaurant

A good local British pub/restaurant/wine bar. As a young married couple we are constantly travelling to eat with friends and would love a great place to eat and go for drinks locally. This is a very popular way people are spending their money in today’s society. A good social hub with great food and a […]

Town centre

Narrow the road around the square, move the bus stop. Make the walter parker as big as it can be for public events etc. Use the poundstretcher and adjacent Victoria st car park to build an anchor store supermarket with roof top carpark from Eaton road

Buses

A bus that doesn’t stop at 7pm at night so people from top end of stapleford can actually get to beeston at night would be fantastic

There are currently no buses in the evening from Stapleford Town to Beeston Town , leaving Stapleford isolated and not able to take advantage of the facilities Beeston has to offer or to encourage Beeston residents to visit the restaurants clubs and bars in stapleford. In this day and age this is terrible , Stapleford […]
