Garden waste collections

June 1st, 2020 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News - (Comments Off on Garden waste collections)

28 May 2020

Background

Garden Waste collections were suspended in March at the start of the coronavirus pandemic lockdown as staff sickness levels in the workforce increased, and this decision ensured the domestic waste and recycling service could continue to operate as normal

Staff sickness levels have fallen in recent weeks and more staff are now available to collect residents’ garden waste in addition to providing the usual service.

What is happening

Collections will return to the previously advertised schedule and we will continue to monitor the national Covid risk rating, infection rate, and the continued availability of staff in the weeks to come to ensure we can continue to run all services while ensuring staff safety.

Residents will be asked not to overfill their bins or to leave additional garden waste next to their bin, as crews will not be able to collect any side waste and they will be asked to put their green bin out by 7am on their normal scheduled collection day.

We will only be able to empty garden waste containers once on the scheduled collection day.  Excess garden waste can be composted, taken to the nearest recycling centre or placed into the garden waste container ready for the next scheduled collection.

Household waste and recycling collections will continue as normal.

Re-introduction of garden waste collections

The garden waste collection will re-commence from 4 June 2020. Garden waste will be collected:

  • On the residents normal scheduled collection day.
  • Waste must be contained within the correct garden container provided.
  • Additional garden waste not placed in the container will not be collected. ( see FAQs)
  • Bins must be out by 7am on scheduled collection days.
  • Residents must leave the containers out if not collected as collections times may vary.
  • If the container is not emptied on the scheduled day – residents must report a missed collection.
  • The container  will not be emptied if it is too heavy ( see FAQs)

Coronavirus Scam Warning

March 25th, 2020 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News - (Comments Off on Coronavirus Scam Warning)
Residents across Cheshire are being urged to be vigilant following an emerging national trend of fraudsters taking advantage of the current Coronavirus pandemic.

Nationally, there have been reports of people visiting homes posing as police officers and health officials in a bid to gain entry to homes of the elderly and vulnerable.

Some reports suggest scammers are even promising fake coronavirus tests or offering to deliver shopping and other essentials in exchange for money to assist those who are self-isolating.

Whilst there have been no specific reports within the county residents are urged to remain vigilant and be on their guard.

Police and crime commissioner David Keane said: “It is despicable that fraudsters are exploiting this public health emergency and targeting the most vulnerable people in our communities at a time when they are more vulnerable than ever.

“Police in Cheshire are continuing to work hard to keep us safe in these uncertain times and I would urge you to follow the key scam advice below to help you stay safe in your homes.”

Key advice
•Police officers will never approach you to take a Coronavirus test.
•If someone knocks at your door, always examine and check their identification. If you are unsure please call the organisation or company they are claiming to work for. If they are genuine they will not mind.
•You do not have to let them in and they must leave if you tell them to.
•Never let anyone in your house unless they are someone you know and trust.
•If someone is trying to rush you into doing something, handing over money or taking a test it is likely that they are involved in a scam.
•Never give money or your card and pin number to anyone.
•Be aware that scammers can be clever, they will have done their homework and will often know a lot of information about people they target. Often they are very organised.
•If you believe that you have been victim of fraud call us on 101 or report it to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040.

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.

Commemorating 750 years of St Oswald’s Church

March 25th, 2019 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in Events | News - (Comments Off on Commemorating 750 years of St Oswald’s Church)

In July, Lower Peover is celebrating 750 years since St Oswald’s church was founded with a four day ‘Celebration with Flowers’.

Throughout the festival, the church will be decorated by Knutsford Floral Design Club, who will be creating magnificent flower arrangements depicting significant dates in the history of the church.

On Friday, 5th July 2019 at 7.30pm, a concert will be held inside St Oswald’s Church. Entertainment will be provided by soprano, Linda Richardson. Linda was born in Cheshire and studied at the Royal Northern College of Music. She completed her studies at the National Opera Studio. Warrington Male Voice Choir, one of England’s oldest choirs, will be singing a selection of songs at the concert.

Fifty years ago, when Lower Peover celebrated 700 years since St Oswald’s Church was founded, a 7th centenary pageant about the history of the church and the village, known as the Peover Saga, was held in the grounds. Many local people will still remember watching and being involved with the pageant. A film of the Peover Saga will be projected on screen during the events.

On Saturday 6th July, St Oswald’s Church will be holding the annual church fete at 12pm.

On the morning of Sunday 7th  July there will be a special service at St Oswald’s Church, where there will be a notable speaker.

Fundraising events for a ‘Celebration with Flowers’ are also taking place in advance of the main events:-

– A pudding and quiz evening on the 28th March 2019, 7.30pm at Plumley Village Hall.

– A walk between St Oswald’s Church, Lower Peover and St Lawrence’s Church, Over Peover, and back again, on the morning of the 11th May 2019, followed by refreshments. The walk will commence at St Oswald’s Church. Further details will be made available in the near future.

Council calls for stronger action by Cheshire West and Chester against housing developer

January 26th, 2019 | Posted by Sarah Morgan in News | Uncategorized - (Comments Off on Council calls for stronger action by Cheshire West and Chester against housing developer)

Lower Peover Parish Council are calling for Cheshire West and Chester Council (CWAC) to take stronger action following months of misery for residents living adjacent to the new development.

 

Having initially been refused planning permission by CWAC, with strong local opposition which was supported by Cllr Mark Stocks, the developer Harvey Homes won an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate to build 30 homes at a site adjacent to Holly Tree Drive, with a new entrance to be built on Middlewich Road.

 

From the start of the building early in September 2018, when earthworks were started by contractor Westshield, the site has solely been accessed via Holly Tree Drive, with HGVs driving up and down Holly Tree Drive on a daily basis ever since. On some days residents have logged up to 50 truck movements a day consisting of mostly 30 ton tippers carrying hard core, articulated trucks delivering huge concrete drains and ready mix concrete deliveries. Due to the limited width of Holly Tree Drive, trucks have been seen mounting the kerb to pass, unloading onto the residential street and blocking residents’ driveways and pavements. This has led to resident concerns about pedestrian safety.

 

Cheshire West and Chester Planning Enforcement Department issued a Breach of Condition Notice on September 21 to Harvey Homes, giving the builders 28 days to stop using Holly Tree Drive as a construction site access, but this has been challenged by the developer and an additional application to vary the condition was submitted and subsequently refused.

 

With the builders now blaming delays on the Highways department to give the go ahead for the new access, CWAC state that they are awaiting action from the Westshield before signing off the agreement. The action from the Planning Enforcement department now lies with the legal team and the timeframe for action is unlikely to provide an outcome before the access to Middlewich Road is completed.  The stalemate between the contractors and the Borough Council now leads to increasing frustrations for residents caught in between.

 

Cllr Louise Corlett, Chairperson of Lower Peover Parish Council said: ‘’The Parish Council are extremely concerned about the use of Holly Tree Drive by Westshield to gain access to the building site. We are unhappy that residents are being subjected to daily inconvenience with over 50 articulated lorries going down their narrow street every day. This was a quiet, calm and safe residential area of Lower Peover but, since September, the neighbourhood peace and the safety of residents has been put at risk. Residents’ driveways have often been blocked, access by car or on foot is often disrupted by lorries and the size, noise and weight of these lorries mean that there is considerable concern about the health and safety of the residents. This situation needs to be addressed urgently ‘’

 

Cllr Mark Stocks adds ‘’ I completely support the residents in Lower Peover and their concerns regarding access to the new housing development in Lower Peover. The council should be taking enforcement action against the developer and ensuring access to the site is via Middlewich Road only. the council should with immediate effect put a stop notice on the site until the completion of the new access. It is unacceptable to use Holly Tree Drive and Birchwood Drive to access site it both dangerous an unsafe for all residents’’
