Parish Council Newsletter

Starting in June 2017 the Parish Council plans to issue three electronic newsletters each year, replacing the original paper newsletter which was costly to produce and sometimes difficult to deliver to all households.

Smart Motorways Programme M1 Junctions 23a-25: Official start of works

The official start of works for the M1 J23a-25 Smart Motorway scheme was on 30 March 2017. Costain Galliford Try (CGT) Joint Venture, working on behalf of Highways England, will be carrying out the construction for this scheme.

To maximise efficiencies during construction and to minimise the overall scheme duration, construction activities will be taking place across the full length of the scheme. This will require traffic management and reduced speed limits between junctions 23a and 25 to ensure the safety of the workforce and the travelling public.

Environmental management during construction

The contractor is required to apply best practical means as defined in Section 72 of the Control of Pollution Act 1974 to reduce noise to a minimum. A Construction Environmental Management Plan (CEMP) and a Register of Environmental Actions and Commitments (REAC) have been produced to ensure construction works are appropriately managed to mitigate environmental impacts. In addition, in advance of certain work activities CGT will notify residents in close proximity.

TACKLING INVASIVE PLANTS IN OUR PARISH

 

Giant Hogweed has been reported in sites within Ockbrook & Borrowash.

The Parish Council is taking steps to eradicate the problem by digging out the offending plants and destroying them.

Please see the poster opposite which gives details of what damage can be caused to people who come into contact with this plant.

It has very rapid growth reaching 4 metres in height and contact with the skin can cause severe painful blisters which can last up to ten years and leaves the skin badly scarred.

Blindness can occur if it comes into contact with the eyes.

With the school holidays nearly upon us it is important that the public report any sightings to the Parish Office as soon as possible in order that it can be dealt with.
