Message from RCC re Fraud Alert

The Council has taken a large number of calls from residents who say they’ve been contacted by scammers posing as Council officers and asking for bank details over the phone. In some cases they are also claiming to work for the resident’s bank to extract this information.

Our advice to resident’s is as follows and we would appreciate it if you could help to share these messages online, via social media or any other channels at your disposal:

  • Rutland County Council will never contact residents out of the blue to ask for their bank details
  • Anyone who does get a call from someone claiming to be from the Council and asking for bank details should hang up straight away – do not give out any personal information
  • They should then report the call to the national fraud reporting centre, Action Fraud on: 0300 123 2040 or online at: www.actionfraud.police.uk

We have already been in touch with our pool of local media and Leicestershire Police, who are supporting this.

Lastly, there is a news item on our website if you would like to link to this in your local communications: www.rutland.gov.uk/my-council/council-news/residents-warned-about-phone-scam.

Consultation Rutland Local Plan Sep 18

The Parish Council and its St George’s Barracks Working Group have prepared a briefing note about the Rutland Local Plan Consultation that is currently taking place. This will be delivered to all homes in the Village this weekend. The Briefing note is here:  PC Briefing – Sep 18  

The consultation documents are complex and require detailed analysis. A steering group set up by the Parish Council has reviewed the document, identified a number of key issues arising from it, and prepared a pro-forma to simplify the response process (attached: LOCAL PLAN CONSULTATION – SEP 18 RESPONSE V1 ).  If you wish to take advantage of this, please look at the comments on the attached pro-forma and indicate clearly each individual comment that you agree with, ensuring that you provide your name and address. (RCC have now agreed that responses can be submitted in any format.) Then place it in an envelope in the Red Box in The Fox or return to 11 Digby Drive or to any Parish Councillor. All returns are requested by Friday 21st Sep 18, after which they will be taken to Rutland County Council. Alternatively, RCC’s formal Consultation Response Form, this pro-forma or free-form comments can be submitted directly to RCC at: localplan@rutland.gov.uk. RCC require the consultation to be completed by 24th Sep. To count, all responses must contain the name and address of the individual concerned.
Drop In Session. To give you a chance to review a hard copy of the Local Plan document, to ask questions about it and should you wish, to have an opportunity to complete RCC Response Form or the attached survey form, we are holding a ‘Drop In’ session from 7pm – 9pm on Friday 14th Sep 18 in the School Hall.

CONSULTATION – LOCAL PLAN

You will have received today a note from Mr Gilman at Democracy HQ ?? in Pilton.  In it he enclosed a survey form for you to complete and return to him considering one single aspect of the RCC consultation, namely how many homes we would wish to see built at St George’s Barracks. I and the Parish Council and our SGB Working Group are working very hard to produce a sound response to the consultation on behalf of the Parish of North Luffenham. This will be produced in good time for consultation with the parishioners before the submission date of 24th September. A letter and pro forma will be circulated this week covering our response to the proposals in the plan. In addition we will be hosting a ‘Drop In’ session on Fri 14th from 7 – 9pm in the Village Hall. I am however concerned that should you choose to complete Mr Gilman’s form you may find that under the consultation rules, you are unable to respond fully to the RCC Consultation paper. Under these circumstances, parishioners of NL are recommended to ignore the circular sent by Mr Gilman and to take the lead from their elected Parish Councillors who are determined to protect the interests of NL Parishioners.
