Launch - Pitsford Neighbourhood Development Plan 20th Jan 2 - 6pm

Launch - Pitsford Neighbourhood Development Plan 20th Jan 2 - 6pm

All residents will be receiving an invitation to the launch of the Pitsford Neighbourhood Development Plan on Saturday 20th January, 2018 2pm to 6pm in the Village Hall.

This is the first Consultation with the residents of the parish. We need your views on what you like/don't like, want/don't want and how you think the parish should develop in the future. This is YOUR Plan.

A Neighbourhood Plan is a community-led framework for guiding the future development and growth of an area. It will contain a collective vision of aims, planning policies and proposals for improving the area or providing new facilities. It will deal with a wide range of issues including housing, local employment, education, heritage assets, transport and items of particular importance in the local area. More »

It will take quite some time to create this important Plan but once 'made' it will form part of the DDC Local Plan which is currently being consulted upon. This means that this Plan will be studied when planning applications are to be decided. This consultation is just the first rung on the ladder.

Please make the time to visit the launch this coming Saturday afternoon. There will also be more information on the history and heritage of Pitsford.

Following on from what we hear from you at this launch the next stage is a questionnaire which will be distributed to everyone in the parish over the age of 18.

Creating this Plan will require a range of skills. If you have particular interests/skills in planning, ecology, biodiversity, landscape history and archaeology, mapping, geology, writing, above average Word or Excel skills to help with analysis you could be of help. The ability to engage, communicate and negotiate with a diverse range of members of the public, local businesses and other key stakeholders is also helpful. If you think you could volunteer in any way, please contact at neighbourhoodplan@pitsfordvillage.co.uk » Less

Does anyone recognise this type of rubbish? Does anyone know of a similar dumping or source? If so please contact clerk@pitsfordparishcouncil.org.uk The problem is normally along the main road, why choose outside a house in a quiet road!

When should I use 999?

When should I use 999?

IF IT'S A CRIME AT THE TIME DIAL 999 IF NOT 101 OR GO ONLINE Report online here REMEMBER TO TAKE THE REGISTRATION NUMBER.

An example of a suspicious incident: One night a resident saw a car stopped, not properly parked, near the book exchange/telephone box at the top of Grange Lane junction with High Street. Engine running, lights on, for about 25 mins. Should they have reported it, with the registration number, to 101? The Police said yes! Do not delay. Let the operator decide the importance of the call. It will be logged and could be tied to other suspicious events reported locally. More »

Afternoon all
This was raised at the last NHW meeting and I hope that the below explains it a little clearer. The advice I would give would be...
When should I use 999 ?
999 is for reporting emergency situations only; below is a helpful mnemonic to remember when to use it.
P Phone 999 only if
O Offenders are nearby
L Life is at risk
I Injury is caused or threatened
C Crime or disorder is in progress
E Emergency situations

When should I use 101?

  • if you've had a minor traffic collision
  • if your property has been damaged
  • if your car has been stolen - not at time of offence
  • if you suspect drug dealing
  • if you've witnessed a crime - not crime in progress
  • if you have information about criminals in your local area
  • if you've seen a missing person
  • if you need crime prevention advice
  • if you want to speak to a local police officer/ your local Neighbourhood Policing Team
  • if you want to speak to the police about any other incident that doesn't require an immediate response
  • if you want to make us aware of any policing issues in your local area

What is 101?
101 is now the number to call when you want to get through to your local police when it's less urgent than 999.
It is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Calls to 101 from land lines and mobile networks cost 15 pence per call, no matter what time of day you call or how long you are on the phone.

Regards
