Do you know who to contact if you spot an issue? We all have the responsibility to notify someone if we see something that needs repairing or could be dangerous but finding the right contact can be a challenge and make a huge difference to the speed of the issue being addressed.
As a general rule:
Contact the County Council at www.staffordshire.gov.uk to report any issues with highways (e.g. potholes), pavements or flood prevention.
East Staffordshire Borough Council has responsibility for planning matters including planning applications and planning permission condition enforcement, refuse collection including dog waste bin emptying, some recreational facilities such as Brook Hollows and Forest School Street play area and will give advice if you have other concerns such as smoke or odour from bonfires and noise nuisance.
The Parish Council maintains our play parks, open spaces, footpaths and more local amenities such as the planters on Burnside and benches around the village. They can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org
New posts have now been installed to replace the very old rotten ones at the area next to the brook where the village sign is located (opposite the Spread Eagle). Thanks to the council contractor for this work which is part of ongoing maintenance ensuring our village assets are looked after and kept in good order.
The community library, set up by Rolleston Kindergarten and Youth Representatives from the Parish Council, opened in 2023 and is in great demand by children and adults. Located outside the Kindergarten it houses second hand books for all ages which may be borrowed or swapped. The stock changes regularly as the books are borrowed or returned and as fresh ones join them. Well worth a visit by all readers.
The new stile has now been installed at Craythorne field leading from the carpark onto the field by the council contractor. This work was part of the project to improve access onto the field, which last year saw the installation of a new kissing gate from the car park, and a replacement bridge and link path from the Forest School Street entrance to Tafflands.
