Council gives its Support to Armed Forces

Posted: Tue, 11 Feb 2020 17:06 by Phillip Woodward

The Armed Forces Covenant

The Armed Forces Covenant is an enduring covenant between the people of the United Kingdom, Her Majesty's Government and all those who serve or have served in the Armed Forces of the Crown and their families. More »

At its meeting on 3rd February the Parish Council committed itself to honour the Armed Forces Covenant and to support the Armed Forces Community. To this end the Parish Council will endeavour in its business dealings to uphold the key principles of the Armed Forces Covenant, which are:-

* no member of the Armed Forces Community should face disadvantage in the provision of public and commercial services compared to any other citizen

* in some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate especially for the injured or bereaved.

The Parish Council has asked Councillor Geoff McNeice to be the Pilsley Armed Forces Champion to raise awareness of the Armed Forces Covenant and signpost the Armed Forces community when needing advice and guidance.

A copy of the Armed Forces Covenant signed by the Chairman of the Council is attached. » Less

Parish Precept 2020/21

Posted: Thu, 30 Jan 2020 10:44 by Phillip Woodward

The Parish Council has agreed a 5% increase in its 2020/21 precept from £99,990 to £104,990.

The Council provisionally agreed this increase in December 2019 but decided firstly to test public opinion by publicising its intentions on its Facebook page and on its website. No adverse comments were received so the increase was confirmed at the January 2020 Council meeting. More »

The increase will take the annual payment on a Band D property from £103.83 to £109.14 - a yearly increase of £5.31 or 10p per week.

Following our representations the Council has received a slight boost to its finances with the news that North East Derbyshire District Council has decided that its support grant to parish councils, which was due to finish at the end of the current financial year, will be continued for a further year. We will receive the sum of £2,750.66. » Less

No Change of Heart on Surgery Closure Proposal

Posted: Fri, 24 Jan 2020 16:07 by Phillip Woodward

The public outcry led by the Parish Council on Staffa Health's proposal to close Pilsley Surgery appears to have failed in its bid to get Staffa to have a change of heart.

The Practice has produced an eighty four page document on the consultation process and this can be seen on its website www.staffahealth.co.uk More »

The document indicates that having considered all the responses including letters from our County Councillor, Parish Councillors and a petition signed by patients, Staffa Health is still proposing to close the surgery but with twelve months notice to allow it to make some changes to its service provision.

During the twelve month notice period the Surgery will be open for one and a half days per week.

Staffa Health's proposals will be presented to the Primary Care Co-Commissioning Committee (PCCC) on 26th February 2020 and the Committee will then decide on the Surgery's fate.

The parish council has written again to members of the PCCC in a further attempt to prevent the closure - Copy attached. » Less
