Sandbags

Today’s rain is a suitable reminder that the Flood Agency advise preparing in advance of any flooding rather than during it! The Parish Council has provided sand and sandbags in the store at the base of the Sycamore flagpole. These are available to anyone who feels they would be helpful. If you think you might need sandbags please feel free to fill and take some any at time. Then you will have them if you need them. They work best if they are about two thirds full.

The Clerk also has a small number of “floodsax’ provided as a free sample. These are easier and lighter to store. They can be quickly deployed at the base of a door where they swell up to reduce any ingress of water. These are also best collected in advance, so if you would like one please contact the Clerk on clerk@parwichparishcouncil.org.uk or 01335 216238 or call round at Fernlea.

The next meeting of Parwich Parish Council will be held on Wednesday the 18th May 2022 at 7:00 pm in the Memorial Hall.

The meeting will be adjourned at 8:00pm so that the Parish Annual Meeting can take place.

The previous minutes of the Parish Council indicated that we had hoped to present the results of the recent Housing needs Survey at the Parish Annual Meeting. However we have recently been advised by Derbyshire Dales District Council that this will not be available until the end of the month, so this will not be possible. The survey will be discussed at a future meeting of the Parish Council.

The agendas are here.

The Annual Meeting of the Parish Council and the Parish Annual Meeting will be held in the Memorial Hall from 7.00pm on Wednesday the 18th of May.

The Parish Council is required to hold a Parish Annual Meeting each year. This meeting is not a formal Parish Council meeting and has no set format.


As in the years before the pandemic the Parish Council will take the opportunity to provide summaries of activities and finances during the past year.

We will also be sharing the results of the recent housing needs survey.


Village organisations are also welcome to talk about their own past and planned activities if they wish.

Can you let me know if the Blog would like to be represented? You can make a statement or provide one to be read out if you prefer – or you can simply come and hear about other organisations.

If you wish, copies of any statement can be saved on the Parish Council website as well.

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.

Kiln Lane Corner. You can help!

We’ve been asked by the Parish Council to post the following-

On several occasions the Parish Council have been contacted by residents concerned about vehicles getting stuck on the corner between Kiln Lane and Creamery Lane.

The Council is aware of the hazard and inconvenience this causes. Unfortunately the Parish Council has no powers install signage or other measures to reduce the risk. Previous attempts to get the Highways Authority, Derbyshire County Council (DCC), to install suitable warning signs have been unsuccessful.

However they did suggest that a record be kept every time this happens. This could be used to try again to justify some action.

The Council are asking residents who observe problems on the corner to e-mail the parish Clerk on clerk@parwichparishcouncil.co.uk .

Please include as much information as you can. This could include, but not be limited to:

  • Date
  • Time of day
  • What type of vehicle was it?
  • How long any vehicle was stuck?
  • Was a recovery vehicle required to move it?
  • Was the road beyond the corner blocked?
  • Was the vehicle damaged?
  • Was any property damaged?
  • Was there any other damage?
  • A photo if possible.

Even if is quickly resolved please make a report to add to the evidence.

… and don’t assume someone else will report it!

The more reports we get, even of the same incident, the more impact we hope this will have with DCC .

The number of incidents reported will be logged in the Parish Council minutes. When this makes what the Council feels is a compelling case we will write to them again.
