Update from Parwich Parish Council Clerk.

Housing Needs Survey for Parwich is currently underway.

It is about halfway through and will run until the 22nd of March. 

Several questions have been raised by residents which I will try to answer for you.

Q. Will this result in new homes being built in the village?

A. Not necessarily. If there is a demonstrated local need then a housing association could apply for planning permission to build. If they did they would be subject to all the normal planning application processes. Without a demonstrated local need though a planning application would not succeed.

Q. How many homes might be built?

A. Developments are typically sized to address a third of the demonstrated local need.

Q. Will these homes be for those who identified their need in the survey?

A.  This is actually quite unlikely. Because of the time needed to develop new homes many people’s current needs may have been met some other way by the time they are built. Or unfortunately they may have found that they had to move elsewhere. The assumption is that if there is a need now, then there will still be a need when any homes are built. But it may not be the same people.

Q. Might these homes just end up becoming holiday lets?

A. Current legislation places restrictions on ownership and rental to prevent this. This restiction passess with the propoerty even if it is sold on. This was not the case in the past where ‘Right to Buy” legislation allowed some properties to end up in the rented holiday or second home sector.

Q. Would these just be starter homes for young people?

A.  No. They could be available to anyone will a suitable connection to the village who could not find housing here which was affordable. For example a relative who wanted to move to the village either to care for, or be cared for by, someone living here.

If you have any further questions please contact

clerk@parwichparishcouncil.org.uk

Please encourage anyone who might have, or has had, a housing need which they could not meet in the Parish to complete the survey.

Grey Bin Wednesday

NO food caddy. Put food waste in grey bin.

But sadly no food caddy.

The permanent closure today of the privately owned Vital Earth reprocessing facility in Ashbourne means residents are asked for the next four weeks to mix food waste in your domestic waste containers.

All food caddy collections are paused from tomorrow (1 March).

While Derbyshire Dales District Council remains one of the few councils locally to offer separate food waste collections, we apologise for the temporary inconvenience to our residents.

Vital Earth has for a number of years recycled food and garden waste from Derbyshire Dales collections into compost, used in horticulture and sold in bags at local garden centres.

The District Council has been negotiating with Serco on the new arrangements and has identified alternative recycling sites in the north and south of Derbyshire that will take the district’s garden waste, which means garden waste collections continue unchanged for residents on bin collections.

Unfortunately while one of the new sites will accept garden waste in compostable sacks, the other will not and we cannot split the Dales into separate collection areas. Residents on sack collection rounds who subscribe to our garden waste scheme have already received a direct communication from the Council about this.

We have identified an alternative option for food waste disposal and will update you on this in four weeks when operational details have been finalised with Serco.

Bins Update

This message received from Derbyshire Dales District Council-

While household waste and recycling collections currently remain a day later than usual this week due to Monday’s floods, Serco are catching up faster than expected with some garden, food and trade waste collections.

This means some garden, food and trade waste collections have happened on residents’ usual day today – we apologise on Serco’s behalf for the lack of communication on this.

However, Serco will go back for any garden waste and food collections missed yesterday and today if you were working to the revised day-late schedule and didn’t put your container out. Simply complete the missed bin form at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/missedbin

The new message for the rest of this week is to leave garden and food waste containers out for collection *on your usual collection day*, but household waste and recycling collections will continue to be a day later than usual. Serco’s crews will work on Saturday to catch up.

MARVELLOUS!

and perhaps food caddy…

as our council tells us –

Last week council staff emptied more than 2,200 caddies, equating to around 24 tonnes of food waste. Our own Clean & Green teams will again assist on Tuesday and Friday this week with food waste collections.

One can only dream that serco will be reimbursing the Council for this?

Bin Collection Update

Serco will restart separate weekly collections of food waste on Derbyshire Dales residents’ scheduled collection day from this coming Monday, 29 November.

Separate food waste collections were suspended at the end of July due to the national shortage of HGV drivers impacting the District Council’s waste and recycling service. This freed up teams to focus on domestic and recycling waste.

As promised, the three months suspension of excess recycling, which started from 30 August, will also be lifted from 29 November. We are appealing though to residents to please be mindful that putting out lots of excess at the first opportunity could lead to trucks filling up more quickly than usual and rounds not being completed.

Please therefore try to limit excess for the time being and see our advice on how to present excess recycling so it is easily identifiable at www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/excessrecycling

There has been some disruption to collections due to strike action by Serco crews however best information I have is that domestic waste (grey bin) is being prioritised so we should get a normal collection.

Have your say on council services

Derbyshire Dales District Council is undertaking a Resident Survey this month, asking for views on the services it delivers and how local people feel about the area. The information will help the District Council to improve the policies and services it delivers while finding out what matters most to local people. 

A randomly selected group of residents are receiving a copy of the survey through the post, which they can complete online if they wish. Members of the District Council’s online panel of residents will also receive a link to complete the survey.

Any resident can also complete the survey now at https://www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/residentsurvey21

A District Council spokesperson said: “This year’s survey has two new features. First, residents will be asked to record their views and the reasons for them, as well as selecting a graded response. Second, we are requesting postcodes information to assist us in identifying the areas where we need to focus our actions and to follow up on any points raised.”

For more information about the survey contact Derbyshire Dales District Council’s Policy Officer on 01629 761240 during office hours [Tuesday to Thursday].

The spokesperson added: “The Derbyshire Dales Online Panel is one of the ways in which we listen to residents and people who work in the Dales. Around 950 people have already joined the Panel and we’d love to have more.

“Panel members respond to online surveys on topics that are of interest to them and receive fewer than six surveys a year.” To join the Panel go to www.derbyshiredales.gov.uk/enewsreg

The interactive map in the consultation shows the current, previously proposed and latest proposals for changing Derbyshire District Council ward boundaries. “Dovedale & Parwich” and part of what was “Carsington Water” are merged into one ward. The previous proposal was to call this new ward “White Peak”. The revised proposals give the ward the name “Dovedale, Parwich & Brassington”. You can support this change (or not) by responding to the consultation.
