Our Beautiful Village

Message from the Parish Council –

It is heart-warming to see how attractive the village is being kept. Everything from the mowing and Pump Hill in bloom to people picking up the odd bit of litter as they take their walks – it all adds up. Some great examples of people gardening and painting at their own homes too.

The Parish Council is aware that we have not been able to organise a tidying day to tackle some of the bigger jobs – though we are keeping this under review. In the mean time we know that some of you have been tackling jobs individually around the village. This is really appreciated, but we realise you are probably working alone and we do want you to be safe.

If you are working at land or premises managed by the Parish Council please only do so if you are confident that it is safe for you and for others. Not just observing government guidance on Covid-19, but also addressing any other hazards there may be. If you are not sure about this please contact the Parish Clerk for advice.

Ey up me duck!

Does anyone know of any ducks that need re homing? Investigations have suggested that one of the reasons that so much weed built up in the sheep-wash last year may have been that there are no longer any ducks there to eat it. As ducks have nested there in the past it may be possible to re introduce them. The remaining planting in the sheep-wash has been moved into a denser clump in the corner in the hope that it will create a safer and more attractive nesting space.

If anyone would like to try moving any ducks there please let the Parish Council know.

Pump Hill Southern Boundary

From the Parish Council-

For just over a year the Parish Council has been engaged in discussions regarding the location of the southern boundary of its land at Pump Hill. The title map for the land has been altered to reflect a new general boundary. An account of this process can been read here.

Managing Flood Water

The Parish Council has sent us the following useful information-

The recent rain and flow from springs has prompted the Parish Council to review the measures in place to manage the risk of flooding in the village.

Our lead flood authority is Derbyshire County Council and reports of flooding problems can be made to them here. Reporting flooding emergencies.

 

Useful information is also available available on the Parish Council’s own website here. Advice on flooding. This includes the availability of sand bags in the village.

 

Finally, like Derbyshire County Council, the Parish Council would like to take the opportunity to remind all land and property owners with watercourses of their responsibility for keeping them clear enough to allow the free flow of water. Watercourses include man made ditches as well as natural brooks and streams. Debris can be removed and bank vegetation cut back, but the watercourse should not be altered. If there is a watercourse on the boundary of your property you are responsible up to the middle of it. For more in formation see the government site Owning a watercourse.

Parking Near The Old Shop

The Parish Council has been approached by residents concerned about the number of cars that are sometimes parked in this area. The Clerk undertook to look into the possibility of using a residents’ parking scheme to address these concerns. These schemes are run by the Highways Authority (Derbyshire County Council) who provide details on their website. These schemes cover relatively large areas, do not guarantee parking in any particular place and come at a significant cost to residents.They do not seem suitable for Parwich.

The owner of the Old Shop has kindly allowed the Clerk to have sight of the marketing text for its letting and the advice for guests. This is consistent with trying to avoid inconvenience for residents, although it is not possible to guarantee that it is always followed.

The road is a public space and the Parish Council does not formally have either any authority, or responsibility, to control how it is used. Should vehicles be parked illegally (e.g. either obstructing emergency vehicles or not taxed) this can be reported to the relevant authority.

The Parish Council would therefore simply like to encourage residents and visitors to park considerately and continue to attempt to resolve any problems courteously.
