June 2020

Work  on the Gedling Access Road (GAR) now starts to gather pace. Lambley Lane will now be closed during 'working hours' for the next umpteen months (well, until Feb 2021, actually), and after that, for a shorter period, a total closure. There will be no vehicular or pedestrian access during the periods of closure.

Signs informing of closure to Lambley Lane from June 8 for GAR construction works


A diversion will be signposted, of course - along Spring Lane to Mapperley, and then down Arnold Lane into Gedling and vice versa. A mere 4.9 km one way, according to Google Maps. Please be careful driving in the area, especially around dawn or dusk, as more wild animals have been killed on Spring Lane since the GAR work began.

February 2020

The work on the Gedling Access Road has now started, with temporary traffic lights on Lambley Lane during working hours (08.00- 18.00 weekdays). There have been reports of deer straying onto the local roads, probably after being disturbed by the works. Please be careful when driving in the area around the Country Park.

There will be more speed camera sessions in the Village as the weather improves and the hours of daylight get longer.

The County Footpaths and Rights-of-Way Officer will be checking on the condition of the footpaths in the Village. FP1 is in a particularly poor condition.

A number of extra volunteers have joined the Flood Warden team. Soon it will be possible to legally close flooded roads in the Village.

Planning permission has been granted for a new Foundation unit at the Village Primary School. In association with this, the entrance to the School/Village Hall site will be widened and the stone gate pillars reinstated.

January 2020

Work on the Gedling Access Road (GAR) will begin early in the year. For residents who need access to Gedling via Lambley Lane, there will be two phases of closure of this road until May 2021.

From mid-June 2020 to mid-February 2021, Lambley Lane will be closed to traffic weekdays (07.00-18.00, Monday-Friday).

From mid-February 2021 to mid-May 2021, the road will be fully closed.

Upon completion there will again be access to Gedling along Lambley Lane, but only by travelling part-way along the GAR.

December 2019

The drive up to Lambley Primary School will now be closed between 08.40 and 09.10 and between 15.15 and 15.40 for safety reasons. The public footpath to the Dumbles will remain open all day and the drive will be available outside these times.

The Village Bonfire and Fireworks Party raised over 3000, to be donated to the Reed Pond Fund (1000) and Lambley Primary School (2000).

Dog fouling is again a problem around the footpath from Orchard Rise to the Church.

Recent flooding to Main Street was found to be caused by laurel hedge cuttings blocking the trash screen on Park Lane. Owners of property bordering a water course have a riparian responsibility to ensure that they do not cause blockage of a waterway.

A petition about vehicles speeding through the Village has been passed on to the County Council through our Councillor, Boyd Elliott.
