14 February 2020'MyNotts' Phone App

From Councillor Kay Cutts MBE, Leader Nottinghamshire County Council:

I am pleased to share with you the news that Nottinghamshire County Council’s mobile phone app - ‘MyNotts’ - is now available for residents to download.

The MyNotts app will make it quicker, easier, and more convenient for local people to access council services. Residents can use the app to:

  • Receive updates on school closures, check when school holidays are, and apply for school places
  • Report highways issues, including potholes, faulty streetlights, and overgrown vegetation
  • Find their closest Household Waste & Recycling Centre, and see what can be taken there
  • Access information about care services offered by Nottinghamshire County Council
  • See which events are happening in their local area and our three country parks
  • Keep up to date with news from across Nottinghamshire

This is only the first phase of the app’s development. We would welcome feedback on areas of improvement, which you can provide directly via the app’s ‘Feedback’ section.

If you have an iPhone, you can download the app here. If you have an Android phone (including Samsung, LG, Google, Nokia, and other models), you can download the app here.

03 December 2019Upgrades to the Midland Main Line this Christmas

From: Bethanie Hayton, Public Affairs Executive, Network Rail

This Christmas, engineers on the Midland Main Line will be working around the clock on the construction of a fourth track between Bedford and Kettering. The rail network will be closed over Christmas Day and Boxing Day, and in total there will be eight days which will see service alterations in the region.

To allow work to take place safely, no trains will be able to run between Market Harborough and Bedford or between Bedford and Corby from 22:00 on Christmas Eve to 08:00 on 2 January 2020. A bus replacement service will be in operation on these routes, and a near-full train service will resume on Thursday 2 January.

Thereafter, buses will replace trains between Bedford and Market Harborough and between Bedford and Corby before 08:00 and after 21:30 from Thursday 2 until Saturday 4 January, whilst further work is carried out ahead of the full reopening of the line.

There will be no train services on Christmas Day or Boxing Day as engineers use this time to undertake hundreds of maintenance and upgrade projects across the country. There will be no bus replacement service in operation over these two days.

These extended service alterations over the Christmas period represent a key step in our work to enable increased capacity on the line Midland Main Line, ultimately allowing more services to run in the future and connecting more passengers to jobs, education and leisure opportunities.

Please accept my apologies in advance for the impact that these changes will have for passengers in the East Midlands. Anybody planning on travelling over Christmas is advised to allow additional time for their journeys and check before they travel via National Rail Enquiries or with their train operator.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch should you require any further information about service alterations on the Midland Main Line this Christmas.
