College Fields Update

At the ESBC Planning Committee meeting on the 14th Aug 2018 the College Fields application was given approval. The construction management plan is still to be agreed and for all those at the public meeting on Monday (13th) all of the concerns and actions will still have to be addressed. The Parish Council will continue to monitor the progress on this matter and provide updates as they become available.

Notice to dog walkers

East Staffordshire Borough Council enforcement officers have been in and around the village recently and produced the following disturbing report. Whilst the Parish Council acknowledges that the majority of dog owners dispose of litter responsibly, this kind of behaviour from a minority is unacceptable. Please report offenders to the number below.

Disposing of a dog bag in the bushes is a Littering offence. Our officers have recently cleared 116 bags just from the Jinny Trail, Rolleston. Contact us on 01283 508036 if you know who the culprits are.

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.

Rollestonian of the year!

Congratulations to Richard Bush, Rollestonian of the year 2018. Following his decision to step down as village webmaster after 20 years of stirling service, Richard received many nominations and was justly awarded this honour.

Richard is pictured here receiving his award from Jason Wyatt, chair of The Parish Council.
