The Rolleston on Dove Neighbourhood plan has now been submitted to ESBC to start the Regulation 16 process. This process will see the plan not only reviewed by ESBC but also submitted to an independent assessor for formal review. This submission follows months of work by the Neighbourhood plan committee, building on the work of the previous committee plus the valuable feedback from the Parish, statutory bodies and our external consultants. A huge thank you to all those who contributed.
Depending on the process now being undertaken, we anticipate that the plan will go to the village by referendum some time around June. A copy of the submission can be found below:
The vacancies for the school crossing patrols in Rolleston and Tutbury have still not been filled. The following article in the Burton Mail recently highlighted the challenge and also provides details of who to contact if you are interested.
There will be public enquiry on the 12th-14th March which will be chaired by an independent QC. The enquiry will be conducted to assess the validity of the application to turn the college fields site into a village green.
If you have any evidence to support the application or that you feel is relevant please complete the form below and drop it into Mr Liam Holmes at 9 Forest School St. Attached you will also find a map of the area which should be included with any returned evidence.
Due to budget pressures the County Council is having to consider cuts across a number of services. School crossing patrols are one of the services that may be impacted and as such the Council would like to hear from as many as possible to help inform the decision.
In addition to the wonderful displays around the village we were also honoured to be represented at The Cenotaph by Karen Wright who kindly gave us her recollections of the day – Rolleston at The Cenotaph
Below you will find images from around the village of some the wonderful tributes to the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War.
Please take some time this weekend to visit the incredible cascade of poppies from the church along with the displays on Spread Eagle island and along Brookside. This marks the culmination of the ‘paint the village red’ campaign to honour those that gave the ultimate sacrifice as we mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the first world war.
The Parish Council would like to thank the RoDSEC committee and all of the volunteers who have helped to make this so memorable.
