Local News – Haxey Parish Residents will be aware that the Parish Council took over the responsibility as Sole Trustee of the Westwoodside Playing Fields Association (WPFA) Charity in 2013 and the major improvements carried out over the last couple of years to the Foreman Carter Centre and the outdoor facilities funded by grants from North Lincolnshire Council and WPFA finances.  As part of the ongoing improvement plans, the next project is to upgrade the flooring in the Centre Function Room to a high quality wooden floor.  Local Contractors have been asked to quote for the replacement and will be used for any work carried out.  A new wooden floor will much improve the experience of the facility for all Centre users and will also enable the room to be kept clean more easily.  To help with the project, the Charity has been selected to receive funding from the Co-op Local Community Fund.  The Fund has begun raising money and this will be distributed in March 2017, which means that the Association will receive a contribution towards the floor replacement, but we need your help. The more support we get, the more funding we could receive.  So if you’re a Co-op Member log in to your Co-op Membership account and choose us.  If you’re not a member, please join and support us through the Coop Website.

General Information
The Nottinghamshire Minerals Local Plan Issues and Options consultation is now live. The consultation period runs for an 8 week period until the 14th January 2018.  The Issues and Options consultation is the first, but an important, stage in preparing the new Plan. The document will set out the key issues that are expected to arise over the plan period to 2036 and what reasonable options we think exist to meet them. A series of questions has been included in the consultation document to aid discussion, however we also want to hear about any other issues you may wish to raise regarding future minerals development in Nottinghamshire.  It is important to note that any comments made on the Nottinghamshire Minerals Local Plan withdrawn in May 2017 cannot be taken into account as part of the preparation of the new Minerals Local Plan.  The Issues and Options consultation document will not be considering or identifying new quarries. This process will be undertaken at a later stage in the Plan preparation process.

The County Council is encouraging responses to be made via its online consultation system. Details of how to use the online consultation system can be found on our website at Nottinghamshire.gov.uk/minerals. By using this system it will ensure that all comments are submitted and logged using a safe and secure method. Once the consultation has closed it will then enable the submitted comments to be processed and considered in an efficient manner. Comments submitted via email or letter will still be accepted subject to a name and email or address being provided, as we cannot accept anonymous comments.

Once the consultation event has finished we will consider all of the responses and where appropriate these will be used to inform the development of a draft Minerals Local Plan. Further public consultation will then be undertaken on a draft minerals plan before the final Minerals Local Plan is submitted to the Secretary of State for an Independent Examination. A timetable for the preparation of the Minerals Local Plan can be found on the County Council website.

Doncaster Sheffield Airport (DSA) are consulting on the introduction of aRea NAVigation (RNAV) Standard Instrument Departure (SID) procedures and RNAV Instrument Approach Procedures (IAPs). The adoption of the departure procedures (SIDs) requires an additional portion of controlled airspace for procedure containment to the east of DSA.

The East Riding and Northern Lincolnshire Local Councils Association, known as ERNLLCA, is an independent body which supports parish and town councils in the North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire and the East Riding of Yorkshire. There is an equivalent organisation for each “shire county” area or equivalent in the country and all of these bodies, which are known as County Associations, join together as members of the National Association of Local Councils, or as it is more commonly known, NALC.

ERNLLCA is funded wholly by its members and does not receive any support from any of Principal Authorities or from the Government and exists purely for the benefit of its member parish and town councils. It works closely with Principal Authorities, Government Departments, Professional Bodies, Government Agencies and the Voluntary Sector to promote and support the work of member councils.

ERNLLCA operates a bottom-up approach to its governance. All member councils have the opportunity to meet once a quarter through a system of District Committees. Each council may send any number of representatives to these meetings but only two may vote. Each District Committee elects representatives to serve on ERNLLCA’s Executive Committee and the Executive Committee elects a delegate to the meetings of the National Association of Local Councils. Cllr David Knowles is Haxey Parish Council’s District Committee Representative and is also a member of the Executive Committee.

ERNLLCA’s website can be viewed at www.ernllca.org.uk
