North Luffenham Parish Council General and Trust Meetings 20th June 2022 at 7.30pm in the Community Centre

The agendas and papers for the meeting are attached below.

How can we spend your money? Your ideas and suggestions wanted.

North Luffenham Parish Council (NLPC) has funds from Community Infrastructure Levies (CIL). These payments are made when developments, such as houses being built, and the monies can be used for a broad range of facilities such as play areas, parks and green spaces, cultural and sports facilities. CIL monies were used following the Rosewood development to fund the new play equipment on The Oval.

NLPC would would welcome your suggestions as to how the present funds could be used to enhance facilities within the parish. Please send any ideas to the parish clerk: clerk@northluffenham.org.uk

Further information on CIL can be found on: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/community-infrastructure-levy#spending-the-levy

Reminder – Garden Club Meeting this Wednesday 8th June @ 7pm

This month we welcome our local Bee Expert, Mike Wyatt. Mike has lived in the village for many years and you will have seen him walking the lanes in his bee overalls – well now’s the the opportunity to find all about what he does and how you can help our bee community 😊

In addition, there will be the popular Garden Club Lottery plus signing up for July trip to Oundle and the beautiful Foxtail Lilly Gardens (Cutting Flower Garden & Vintage Florist). Please remember to bring cash for both… £2 per ball & £10 for the Trip on 13th July.

Antisocial Behaviour

Unfortunately there has been more antisocial behaviour in the parish. The newly installed benchdown Moor Lane has had some infantile daubings scrawled on it:

There was recently damage to play equipment on The Oval and to the wooden field bridge over The Chater. Previoulsy there was vandalism of the wall lights on the wall leading down to the school and church. The repair to the play equipment is quite costly and these may result in an increase in the precept.

Please report any suspicious behaviour to the police, who have been informed of the incidents and our beat officer can be contacted: Peter.Icke@leics.police.uk

Reminder: Annual Parish Meeting: 11th April 2022

Damage to Play Equipment on The Oval

There has been damge to play equipment on The Oval and unfortunately it looks deliberate. There has also been damage to the wooden bridge over the River Chater on the footpath from the Church towards the railway bridge on Glebe Rd. It also looks as though it might have been deliberate.

If you do see any antisocial behaviour please contact the police. If you have information that might be helpful our beat officer, PC Icke, may be contacted by email: Peter.Icke@leics.police.uk

Draft Neighbourhood Plan

The draft North Luffenham Neighbourhood Plan, having been approved by North Luffenham Parich Council, has been submitted to Rutland County Council for screening to make sure it complies with various statutory reqiurments. This takes 4-6 weeks and if it meets these requirements there will be an extensive consultation, called Regulation 14, with residents of the parish.

Community Centre Fibre Broadband

The installation of Full Fibre broadband in the Community Centre has now been completed. The Wi-Fi is now powered by a fibre optic cable providing capacity for up to 1 Gigabit. Currently it is enabled for a stable 100Mb/Sec connection.

The Community Centre is available for any organisation or person to book, and so if you would like to take advantage of this new facility (maybe for an important Zoom meeting whilst the kids are playing games via your home Internet? ) please contact Charles Cade on 01780 720467

Bench News 2

With further exciting news on benches in North Luffenham (we know how to attract people to the web site…) a new bench was installed on the Oval today.

This was purchased by the Parish Council from the Men and Women in Sheds project in Oakham, and has a special space left free for pushchairs or wheelchair users.
