Details of the Level 3 deal have been delayed for Nottingham, Gedling, Broxtowe and Rushcliffe as government ministers look to “extend it to other areas in Nottinghamshire”.
It was initially understood that the Ministry of Health and Welfare would issue an announcement detailing the exact details of what the Level 3 restrictions mean for these areas tonight (27 October).
But this was not going to be Where the confirmation and the precise wording of the government was delayed.
Council leaders say they felt “angry and betrayed” by the lack of clarity.
Now, according to Nottingham South Member of Parliament Lillian Greenwood, the delay is because ministers now “want to expand Level 3 to include other neighborhoods”.
Ashfield County Council Chairman Jason Zadrozny, along with Ms. Greenwood, also confirmed that the meeting will take place on Wednesday, October 28, at 9 am.
It is now known that this meeting will be to discuss the current situation in other areas of the governorate, especially since the infection rate continues to increase in the regions Like Ashfield and Mansfield.
Speaking to Nottinghamshire Live, Ms. Greenwood said: “It was an incredibly frustrating day for everyone in Nottingham.
“We were told yesterday that we are going to Level 3 on Thursday, after 24 hours and the public still doesn’t know what that means, companies are unable to plan, and people don’t know if they are going to work on Thursday.
“The government has not yet provided information explaining why the additional restrictions are needed or what they are. Public confidence is being undermined by their spam calls.
“The announcement appears to have been delayed because the ministers now want to expand Level 3 to other Notts neighborhoods – as I and others said days ago.
“Once again, this government is teetering and lagging – and our constituents, our hospitals, and the local companies in our city are paying the price.”
Counselor Zadrozhny added: “I had a phone call with Chris Pincher who asked all the leaders [of each council] To have a meeting at 9 AM tomorrow morning to share some health stats.
“I think something will come. By 10:30 pm, we should know. What I understand is that they might want to change it and add us all.”
“They have already negotiated the financial packages of the county council. All that remains to do is draw a map.”
It is still currently understood that Level 3 restrictions will still be in place on Thursday at 00.01, but it remains unclear how these restrictions will affect companies and residents at the local level.
A joint statement from local leaders in Nottingham, Giddling, Brookstow, Rushcliffe and the wider county said: “We value that our communities and our companies await clarity and certainty about how Level 3 measures will affect them.
“We await confirmation from the government about the progress it has made in drafting the necessary legislation for Nottingham, Proxto, Gidling and Rushcliffe.
“At the earliest opportunity, we will publish details of the measures and the support package.”
Local leaders, Including Board Member John Clark, The deal was described as “good” while the 28-day limit was said to be made for people’s mental health.
However, Rushcliffe Borough Council leader Simon Robinson says the restrictions are It probably doesn’t go far enough.
It also talks about the possibility of restricting alcohol sales from external licenses for the duration of the Level 3 insurance.
