Traffic in Parwich

Concerns about road safety in the village have been brought to the attention of the Parish Council. The Parish Council has no direct powers to address this sort of concern as the Highways Authority is Derbyshire County Council.

The Parish Council has decided to write again to its County Councilor asking for these concerns to be addressed. The text of this letter is below.

In order to provide substance to any future lobbying, residents are encouraged to note any “near misses” that concern them. These can be e-mailed to the Parish Clerk using clerk@parwichparishcouncil.org.uk

Text of e-mail to Councillor Spencer:

Dear Councillor Spencer,

Parwich Parish Council have asked me to write to you as their local councillor.
 Would you please bring the following matters to the attention of the relevant Cabinet member and Committee.
 
20 mph speed limits.
In 2020 the Parish Council was provided with a lengthy explanation of Derbyshire County Council’s reluctance to implement 20mph speed limits. Since that time residents and councillors have seen the widespread implementation of 20mph limits in other parts of the country. There is continued concern in the village about vehicle speeds. Especially where there are blind corners and no pavements. The Parish Council would like to place on record their continued disappointment that Derbyshire County Council remains unwilling to act to limit speeds in small villages like Parwich.
 
Playground sign.
In 2019 it had been agreed that it would be beneficial to install a ‘children playing’ warning sign on the main road through the village as it approaches our unfenced children’s playground on the village green. This was to be addressed when money became available. In 2020 in a reply addressing this (as well as the speed limits) Gill Turner again advised that

“this is something that is proposed commensurate with current priorities and workloads”
 
However the village is still waiting for this signage to appear.
 An update on both matters would be appreciated.

Regards

Andrew Martin

Bin collection

DON’T PANIC! If you have not yet had your scheduled bin collection this week, please leave your bin out.

Due to the high volumes of waste following the Christmas period, vehicles are filling up much more quickly than normal.

We will therefore be running a catch up service *this Saturday* to try to bring up to date any collections that have been missed or remain outstanding.

Dog friends wanted

We have received the following request from Ellie and Ben if you are interested please email them at eburt91@gmail.com…

My boyfriend and I live in Pikehall and we have a lovely (lively!) cocker spaniel called Gozo. We would love to have a few local ‘dog friends’ that we could do some mutual dog sitting duties for when we go away or the occasional night here and there. I wondered if anyone would be interested in meeting for a dog walk, seeing if the dogs get on and potentially chatting about how we could help each other with occasional dog care in the future? This is also open to someone who doesn’t have a dog and perhaps would like the odd occasion to care for one but we like the idea of being able to return the favour! Please do let me know if you’re interested at eburt91@gmail.com. It is probably also worth saying that Gozo has his bits – he’s very friendly, not aggressive/dominant at all but may be a problem if you have an un-neutered female around!

Thank you! Ellie and Ben B
