Kettlebrook Lodge is safe and always has been safe. It is not included in the Neighbourhood Plan.
Kimberley Town Council is working with Ken Mafham, Town Planning Consultant, on the Neighbourhood Plan for Kimberley to protect and sustain the best for the community.
The document that has been referred to recently in social media, is a year old study produced by outside consultants and whose contents were no more than suggestions.
The possible moving of Kettlebrook Lodge to a new building nearby “if required” was only ever a suggestion in that study, and this was not adopted by either Kimberley Town Council or Broxtowe Borough Council.
Trevor Rood, Chairman Kimberley Town Council
I am the planning consultant advising on the Neighbourhood Plan. I can confirm that there is no intention to demolish Kettlebrook Lodge.
The proposals for the site only show enough existing properties to enable people to see where the plan relates to. The fact that an existing property is not shown has no significance at all. It never was the intention to demolish Kettlebrook Lodge or any other properties that lies outside the area
Ken Mafham, Town Planning Consultant
We hope this has reassured all members of the community.
