Stolen Sheep


We are appealing for information following a report of theft of three Greyface Dartmoor Sheep that were stolen from a property in Biggin. The theft is believed to have occurred overnight from 2200 hours on 25/8 and they were discovered missing the following morning.

The sheep are a unique breed and this has understandably caused some distress to the owner.

We are asking for anybody with any information that could assist us with locating the sheep or the person(s) responsible for the theft to contact us either:

– On 101
– On our dedicated email

The crime reference is: 17000366151

Many Thanks


PC 14013 Bowler

Update from the Police: these have now been returned

We have been asked by the Parish Council to publish the following –

Derbyshire Environmental Trust administer the Tarmac Landfill Communities Fund. This fund allows grants to be made for certain community projects that are near to landfill sites. It is funded by tax rebates available to land fill operators. Average grants are in the region of £20,000 though there is no specific limit.

The Parish Council has established that Parwich is located close enough to such a site to be able to apply for a grant. It has also been confirmed that playground improvements would be a suitable project.

At this stage the Parish Council is interested in hearing from residents about the sort of improvements they would like to see. Ideas from children would be particularly appreciated.

It is not possible to confirm if any particular suggestion would be implemented as costs and alternatives may have to be considered. The whole process may take many months due to the timetable for preparing and reviewing applications.

Depending on the proposals made permission from the Paek Parks Planning Authority may be required.

Please e-mail or write to the Parish Council, or contact the Clerk or any of the Councillors with your suggestions.

We have been asked by the Parish Council to publish the following –

The Peak District National Park Planning committee has rejected this Planning Application.

The reason given was that

“The proposed installation by reasons of its height and exposed position would appear as an intrusive feature in this open countryside location, detrimental to the visual amenities of the area.”

No further public consultation had taken place as the application was regarded as a “permitted development”.
