Although we plan to continue posting information and encouraging discussion here at parwich.org, we also encourage anyone interested to look at the very helpful and well laid out information section on the Parwich Parish Council website

Thank you Jim for this reminder:
I would just like to make it clear that comments were invited by Pegasus, agents for Shared Access, in relation to the proposed mast application.
Comments are invited by Rachel Morrison, Planning Assistant, at the following email address:
Telephone comments were also invited on 01454 625 945
I would just like to make sure that any concerned residents of the village had this information to hand.
Pegasus have requested that comments are received by them by this coming Friday, 16/09/16 if possible, so that they can be taken into account during the design stage of the proposal. Whether such comments would help them amend their application to take into account any protests is not known by me at this moment.
The Blog Team added: This consultation is on behalf of the mobile phone company, and any proposed mast would need to be agreed by the landowner, and then go through the normal Peak Park planning procedure. Our Parish Council are sharing information promptly on this and [Ammended 12/9/16] “Once all the information is available an open session will also be set up in the Memorial Hall. Residents will be able to see the same information as the councillors. Councillors will be present so that residents can share their own views with them.”.
The Ashbourne News Telegraph reports that although you can get stamps or post parcels, there is not much else you can do at the Ashbourne Post Office at present:
The lack of full services at the post office inside the Co-op store in the Shawcroft Centre is now into its second week.
It is not known how quickly the difficulty will be resolved. Click here to see the full article. The nearest alternatives for us are Hartington and Winster, click here to find out more about local branches on the Post Office website.
Thank you to the Parish Council for this update:
Some members of the Parish Council have met with a representative of Shared Access to obtain more information about the potential for a mobile phone mast in the village. They will be receiving further information shortly and have requested it in electronic form so that it can be shared widely. The blog and the Parish Council website will be used to do this.
Once all the information is available an open session will also be set up in the Memorial Hall. Residents will be able to see the same information as the councillors. Councillors will be present so that residents can share their own views with them.
It is not the Parish Council that will decide whether a mast will be built. This will be done through the normal process of planning applications for the Peak District National Park. The Parish Council would be consulted as part of this process but would not be making the decision.
The Parish Council does have the opportunity to decide whether or not to offer to lease land for the mast to be built on. The purpose of sharing information with residents will be to try and give the best possible understanding of the advantages and disadvantages for residents of them doing this. If the Parish Council does not offer a site for a mast someone else might.
The Parish Council would like to encourage residents to learn as much about these proposals as possible and to feed back their views both for and against the lease of land.
Clerk RFO. Parwich Parish Council
The Derbyshire Dales DC online consultation about charging for replacement wheelie bins runs upto the 30th of September (click here to participate in their survey).
As well as the District Council consultation, the Blog Team thought it worth asking some additional questions here. (Click here to see our original post.) There have been some interesting results and comments to our poll which you can still participate in.
We feel that Derbyshire Dales offers an excellent waste collection and recycling service, which compares well with other Authorities, and they respond well to any disruption to collections. What do you think?
Replacement refuse and recycling containers cost the Council some £28,000 per year.
