Village Maintenance Day

We have been asked by the Parish Council to publicise the next Village Maintenance Day which will be held on Sunday the 8th of October.

The particular tasks to be tackled will be discussed and planned at the next Parish Council Meeting on the 20th of September.

The Parish Council hopes that by giving advance notice, more people will be able to take part. Even if you can only give an hour or two you will be very welcome. The more people we have the more we can get done on the day.

The Allotment Poll

A few weeks ago I ran a poll on here to coincide with  National Allotments Week

The poll attracted 30 responses (thank you all!) with 13 saying they would like to have an allotment in the village.

There were 2 comments that added some good information and ideas for thoses interested.

The Parish Council Clerk provided some valuable information for those interested in an allotment –

“If residents would like to rent an allotment they should write to the Parish Council. If six residents write to a Parish Council requesting provision of allotments the Council is required to formally assess the level of demand.”

Then this great suggestion came from Saskia T –

“I wondered whether a third option of a ‘Community Allotment’ should also be considered: i.e. a shared allotment that could be used by a group of residents who don’t have a veg plot and would share the produce. Other growers in the village could share excess seedlings and excess produce (especially runners beans and marrows…). And if there is enough space: a few fruit trees? Perhaps pie (or should that be ‘pumpkin’) in the sky? The suggestion originates from a visit to an amazing community allotment project in a small hamlet in Australia”

So in conclusion, anyone interested in allotments should write to the Parish Council.

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”.
