Communications received (E.g. on ).

  • We received a poster about the provision in the new "Localism Act" for Parish Councils to (subject to referendum) create a forum for preparing a "neighbourhood plan", choose where they want new homes, shops and offices to be built, and grant planning permission (subject to local and national planning policies). There is a free workshop on this at the Magacentre, Sheffield on 2012-03-21.
  • We have received a couple of enquiries from Students of Hallam University. I have already replied to one, and unless anybody objects or wants to take it on, will give some reply to the others.
  • We have been asked if we are interested in a "form of service"  for the dedication of the war memorial on 24/09/1921, marked James Beever. If anybody is interested, just let JP or RT know, and they will give you details of the email.
