Black Lab on the Loose

There’s a black lab (I think) with a red collar loose near Roystone Grange, heading towards the quarry. It’s very frightened, and ran away when approached. We’re trying to get it on a lead to keep it safe. If anyone has lost their dog please call me (Ruth) on 07717846918

Last seen heading towards the High Peak trail, we have been unable to catch it.

Residents’ garden waste service questions answered

With garden waste collections now operating to schedule across the Derbyshire Dales during the continuing coronavirus pandemic, local residents are being reminded there will be a charge for the service from April next year.

More than half of all UK councils now charge residents for garden waste collections, including 39 of the 50 councils most similar to Derbyshire Dales District Council.

It will cost a discounted £35 for Dales households that subscribe to the garden waste service before the end of January 2021, generating funds to offset the increased cost of the District Council’s new waste and recycling contract, which starts next month.

The cost of the contract rises by £1-million a year after Dales residents made it clear they wanted the District Council to maintain current service levels, which are the best in Derbyshire. It means fortnightly collections of dry recycling and residual household waste continue as the new contract kicks in, together with weekly food waste collections.

A cheaper deal could have been struck by making household waste collections less frequent – but in resident surveys local people rejected this idea. Councillors voted by an overwhelming majority at a special council meeting at the end of last year for Serco to continue to deliver the waste and recycling contract for the district and also agreed to approve the new charge for collecting garden waste.

Subscriptions open from September this year and the cost will rise to £50 from February 2021 when the discount period ends. Free garden waste collections will continue for all 34,000 households across the Dales until April next year. Ahead of the new garden waste service launch, the District Council has prepared a comprehensive list of frequently asked questions online at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/gardenwasteFAQs

A District Council spokesperson said: “It’s important to stress this will be an opt-in service and charging for garden waste collections was a decision councillors took reluctantly, but we have to raise extra revenue to balance out the impact of the rising cost of the new waste and recycling contract. The reality is that we’ve had to set the garden waste charge so the waste and recycling service overall is affordable to the Council Tax payer.We appreciate residents will have many questions, including why the new contract is £1-million more expensive than the current one, which is why we have prepared the FAQs.Put simply, the market place was much more competitive when we struck the current deal eight years ago. That deal, which was exceptional value for money, simply does not exist in 2020, and this became clear during a rigorous tendering process. Vehicle prices have increased due in part to additional safety features and improved environmental standards, and staff wages have also increased significantly and are likely to continue to rise. In addition, we have specified new technologies such as 360 degree cameras and in-cab technology, which adds to the cost. At the same time, the price obtainable for recyclables has fallen substantially.”

The District Council invited all Dales residents to respond to two consultations during a waste service review period. The main survey closed in September 2018 with 2,629 responses. The spokesperson added: “Local people made it clear to us they wanted to maintain fortnightly collections of household waste and recycling, and weekly food waste collections. To keep the service at the same level in the face of rising costs, it is necessary for a charge for garden waste to offset some of the overall costs of the new service. Added to this, local government finances continue to be challenging and successive central government grant cuts mean we need more money to continue to provide the frontline services our residents expect. The level of government grant we receive will have reduced from £2.8m in 2013/14 to £1m by 2020/21. So even after making substantial savings in recent times, we have to find additional ongoing annual savings or additional income of £250,000 by 2023/24.”

Thanks to Karen R for spotting this:

Food waste collection returns to weekly from Monday

27 July.

Food waste collections in the Derbyshire Dales will return to weekly from Monday 27 July.

Since the end of March the collections have been fortnightly to enable reduced crews due to coronavirus impacts to prioritise household waste and recycling rounds.The usual annual delivery of caddy liners for 2020 has been postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak and will now take place in September.

In the current circumstances any biodegradable bag which conforms to the BS:EN13432 standard and which displays the compostable logo can be used. Food waste can also be placed directly in the food caddy.

Residents can check on their collection date using the online postcode calendar at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/whenismycollection

I believe still not food caddy tomorrow to give extra capacity for garden waste. Note no additional garden waste will be taken beyond the usual bin (or 5 bags if you don’t have a bin).

Sadly, but understandably, the organisers of the Parwich Panoramic Five have made the decision to cancel the PP5 for this year. It would have been on Tuesday 4 August but with the current Covid situation they felt it inappropriate to be inviting 100+ people in to the village unnecessarily.

FBF25C80-2C22-4991-8A46-7C20D86EC212
Update for Bradbourne & Parwich Heating Oil Club

Although many countries are lifting lockdowns and returning to some normality, any increase in demand has been offset by the stockpile of oil built up before production cuts. As a result Brent crude rates seem to have settled at around $42 a barrel. Delivery times are currently 5 to 10 working days.

NOTE Due to Covid-19 some suppliers are no longer leaving delivery dockets (PODs) at the time of delivery, they will be sending them via post after delivery instead. Due to current delays with the postal service in some areas, please allow a week or so for them to arrive.

Video: Please watch.

This weekend, a number of pubs across the county will re-open after almost 15 weeks of lockdown.

As much as we’d like it to be, the experience won’t be one we recognise.

Please remember that social distancing rules continue to apply. You may be expected to queue outside venues or at the bar once you are inside and provide your details at each premises you visit to assist with test and trace.

We all have a responsibility to stop the spread of Coronavirus so please maintain a distance of two metres from those around you.

In this short video, Chief Inspector Becky Webster and Mike Kay, Head of Licensing at Derby City Council, discuss the extra steps that licensed premises across Derbyshire have had to take.

Staff at the Holly Bush Inn in Makeney let us in for a glimpse behind the scenes, showing how the pub experience has massively changed to ensure people can visit safely – with new measures such as face shields for bar staff now in place.

Covid-19 still presents a significant and deadly threat to public health. People should continue to wash their hands regularly and maintain social distancing.

Please reconsider your plans if you arrive somewhere and establish that distancing isn’t achievable.

Be aware of how excess drinking and violent behaviour may impact the emergency services at this time.

Extra officers will be on patrol this weekend to make sure that people can enjoy the county’s pubs, clubs and restaurants safely.

We want everyone to have a good time, but please do so safely, responsibly, and with respect for the public health measures in place.
