PCSO Community Awareness Report

July 19th, 2019 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News - (Comments Off on PCSO Community Awareness Report)

Please continue to phone the 101 number if you see or hear anything suspicious on 101.  We understand this can be rather frustrating at times for the waiting time during high volume times.

Over the past few months in the two wards we have had incidents in relation to dogs out of control and straying from either public footpaths or permitted access footpaths, Damage to footpath fences.  Furthermore we have had reports of livestock either being worried or killed by a small minority of irresponsible dog owners who are not keeping their dogs on leads. (Latest report this morning 08/05/19 at Henbury )

There has been an increase of Keyless cars and vans being stolen or entered  .

Our advice is:-

Switch your fob off at night

Store your fob out of sight and in a faraday bag

Update your vehicles software on a regular basis

Consider fitting a tracker

Consider fitting steering wheel lock

Do not leave any valuables in the vehicle or on show

Community Road watch new scheme to submit your dashcam to the Police to help keep roads safer

For more information then please go to the Cheshire Police website

Most areas are asking for more volunteers for their Community Speed Watch Schemes please volunteer for this there have been very positive results in reducing the speed of vehicles travelling through your villages and past your schools. 

Best Wishes

Chairman’s Report 2018-19

July 19th, 2019 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News - (Comments Off on Chairman’s Report 2018-19)

Lower Peover continues to be a great place to live with a friendly local community.

This report seems very similar to last year: life moves slowly – however the years 2018-19 have seen a few changes arising in the village itself:

  • Building has started for the new homes to come to the village. Despite a planning battle with the council and then a council battle with national bodies, the houses are being built to the builders’ scheme rather then to be more in fitting with village housing stock. Unfortunately, in addition to this, there was great inconvenience and angst caused to those who live on or near Holly Tree Drive as 100s of wagons illegally used the Holly Tree Drive access to the site. Thankfully after some affirmative action from local residents and the Parish council, with support from the media, this situation has been resolved.
  • We won the Best Kept Village Competition for last year!! The hard work by nearly 20 litter-pickers last year will have helped as we took over 20 overflowing bags of rubbish off our lanes. The welcoming appearance of both the Crown and the Bells of Peover were a positive element as well as was the Village shop. As we look towards 2019’s Best Kept Village competition the efforts of those who supported litter picking during the recent rather wet event  -and those that contributed over that weekend – will hopefully count in our favour as judges come, unannounced, to judge us this summer. We hope to do a litter pick again in early September and involve as many as possible to keep Lower Peover looking as good as it can. Keep an eye on the parish noticeboard (outside the Country Store)
  • and the Lower Peover Facebook page for details of new events and make sure that we have your email address but writing to the village clerk.
  • We have welcomed a new member of the Parish Council this year: Alison Painter, who has had connections to the village for generations, is a great addition. Alison, tother with George Dutton  supported the PC contribution to the WW! Commemorative event held at the church.
  • Two other new additions made by the PC this year are the addition of posts around the Tree of Imagination – to try to reduce the impact of cars parking on the grass verge and churning it up and to try to reduce the chance of incident on that corner. The other addition being a new phonebox to our portfolio of Parish Phone Boxes [!]
  • The PC would like to thank the Rev Dr Jane Lloyd for her many years of service as the Vicar of Lower Peover and wish her well as she takes up her new post in Haslington.
  • In Parish Council business we have seen a continuation of several items from previous years:
  1. The dumping of rubble on the land behind Brookfield Cottage, Foxcovert lane has upset a large number of locals as the once easy, green walk over towards the A50 has become a muddy, difficult and unpleasant route. Councillors have worked hard alongside Cheshire West Council but without resolution.
  2.  The once near derelict bridge/footway leading from Foxcovert Lane bridge towards the A50 is now fully repaired and plans are afoot to work with the council on repairing the path from Foxcovert Lane towards the church.
  3. Efforts to try to establish a Neighbourhood Plan have floundered sadly.  Such a plan would become a legally binding document that influences future village development. An locals who wish to become involved would be very welcome.
  4. The ‘Walk To School’ project has seen is explore a number of options – including scoping for a countryside walk way behind the school: but this proved extremely expensive and the Walk to School group continue their efforts to secure a solution but the Parish Council are struggling to support this with anything realistic.
  5. The Superfast Broadband Scheme has been a huge benefit for some residents but not for more outlying houses and we continue to raise this issue with BT.  
  6. We remind ourselves that the old telephone box from outside the Village shop has an AED installed – and If you would like to have training regular monthly training is held at Knutsford Methodist Church please contact Knutsford First Responders Community Trust for more details. In addition we now need to consider what we might use the other telephone Box for and this will be decided in parish meetings this year.
  7. Lower Peover Parish Council joined the ‘Operation Shield’ Project, being organized by the Cheshire Constabulary over 18 months ago: This is an initiative on their behalf to mark valuable items within the home which are frequently stolen when a burglary takes place.  We have held a few events for the release of information and packs for local residents – but we still have a number of packs for residents unclaimed. The police are happy to support with the distribution of these and we need to gain an idea of names and addresses where packs are yet to be delivered. Please do participate. The village has gained a number of signs to warn potential intruders that this is an Operation Shield area.

Please contact our Clerk or any member of the Parish Council if you have any comments relevant to Lower Peover or if you have any suggestions for future projects.
