Neighbourhood Development Plan Update

It has come to our attention that the draft neighbourhood plan May 2018 version requires some further consultation with statutory consultees.  As such, to ensure we are still compliant with the regulations, we shall be re-running Regulation 14 in June 2018.

We are withdrawing this current version for amendment and Regulation 14 on this version is closed.

The Parish Council would like to thank all those who have taken the time and effort to make comments and these will be fully considered in due course.

Bank holiday sun for the Transport Festival

Glorious May weather brought out the crowds for the 10th annual Transport Festival and Garage Sale. Vehicles and crowds packed The Croft and surrounding areas for another fantastic village event. Well done to all of the volunteers and organisers who again gave their time for the benefit of the community.

Annual Village Meeting

The annual village meeting will take place in The Old Grammar School at 1930 on Tue 22nd May 2018. Please join us to hear from a range of village groups about their activities of the past year and a view of their plans for the future.

Flood Update

Following recent flooding in village the Parish Council have collected all the road signs we were given to retain by ESBC and Environment Agency. There are now at least 2 road closed signs with each sand bin in the centre of the village (Brookside, Rolleston Garage and the Footpath which runs from Station Road to Meadow View).

At the April PC meeting we had a presentation from Hannah Hogan From the Staffordshire County Council to advise progress of a business case to invest in flood protection in the village. We will share more news in this as we near implementation.

The Parish Council have ordered 1,500 sand bags which will be distributed to properties at the greatest risk of flooding. Please note sandbags should be stored empty, in dry dark conditions. Once used sand bags must be disposed of as controlled waste due to the risk of contamination by foul waste. We are arranging this with ESBC who will collect all used sand bags in public areas and any that are close to footpaths to maintain public health and safety.

If you have used sandbags on private land please deposit them in the grass near the sand bin on the footpath between Station Road and Meadow View. Please avoid contact with this waste – it will be collected shortly.
