Message from Parish Chairman June 2017

Notes from the parish council meeting
26th June 2017

Work should start on the chicane in Nuneaton Lane on the 17th July. We can only hope that it does slow traffic down and perhaps deter some people from using the village as a "Rat Run"
Volunteers are still required if we are to run a Speed watch scheme in the village, please contact the Parish clerk if you are interested.
We have had reports that there are out of hours working in the units at Station Road, if you see anything please notify either our Parish clerk or HBBC and give details.
If you see large lorries passing through the village that you feel should not be there please take the egistration number and pass it on to the police telephone 101.
The parish council on behalf of the village have been offered land to the north of the new houses in Hilary Bevins, free of charge, by David Wilson Homes. It was proposed and passed at tonight's meeting that we accept this offer. All we have to do in return is to carry maintenance on the land and the balancing pond. We felt that this land will be a great asset to the village in many ways, from both an ecology and educational prospective, and we would like to involve the village in the future of running and maintaining of this land. We will keep you informed as soon as we have more details.
We have had complaints from residents in Station Road about rubbish being thrown into their back gardens from the recreation ground. There is completely no reason for this as we do provide many rubbish bins, so please use them or take your rubbish home.
There were many new faces at the parish council meeting tonight, which was good to see. Please remember it is your village, what happens to it and how it goes forward is really up to you. The parish council are only here to serve your interests.
From the parish council we wish you all a safe and happy summer.
Date of next meeting will be Monday 21st August 2017 7.30pm at the Methodist chapel. More »

Fly tipping

Thu, 11 May 2017 16:29 by Janet Robinson

Hinckley and Bosworth have been urged to help in the fight against fly-tipping after the number of incidents rose by 46 per cent in the Borough last year.

Along with the increase in the number of incidents, the cost of removing fly-tips increased by £12,000 to £34,000 in 2016/17, compared to 2015/16. More »

Most of the fly-tips consist of mixed household waste, which includes black bags, white goods, green waste and construction materials.

The increase, which follows a national trend, has persuaded the Borough Council to launch a new campaign to crack down on bogus waste collectors who offer to remove waste for free, or for a low price, and then fly-tip it.

By law, everyone has a duty of care to take reasonable measures to ensure that waste produced on their property is passed on to an authorised person who will dispose of the waste responsibly. According to the duty of care, if the waste can be traced back to its source and the individual hasn't taken reasonable measures then they may be liable for a fine of up to £5,000.

Businesses that carry waste should be registered with the Environment Agency as licensed waste carriers and they have to pay to dispose of waste, so householders are urged to always beware of being offered unusually low prices for this service and to check on the contractors they use to remove waste and carry out work at their properties.

Contractors should be questioned about how they plan to dispose of the waste and checks made to ensure they are registered waste carriers. This can be done by visiting the Environment Agency's website: https://environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/search-waste-carriers-brokers

Contractors should also be asked to provide a waste transfer note, which is a receipt showing where the waste is from and where they will be taking it to.

Checks will also be made by the council's Clean Neighbourhoods team with local trades companies to ensure that they are complying with their duty of care, meaning they have licences in place to dispose of waste produced through the work they complete.

Fly-tipping carries a Fixed Penalty Notice of £400 and an unlimited fine if prosecuted. In some case it can even carry a prison sentence.

The Clean Neighbourhoods Team issued 12 FPNs for fly-tipping offences during 2016/17. » Less

Church Roof

Tue, 04 Apr 2017 20:31 by Janet Robinson

Many churches still have lead on their roofs which makes them an easy target for thieves.

If you live, work or pass by a church on a regular basis please keep an eye out for anything that looks suspicious. More »

If something doesn't seem right then it probably isn't so please don't be afraid to call us.

If a crime is in progress, or in an emergency, please call us on 999. At all other times please call us on 101.

Thank you » Less
