Does anyone know who owns the blue Audi that has been parked on Lyndon Road opposite Luffenham Court for a long time without moving?
There will be removals vans requiring access to Luffenham Court in the next few days and it would be appreciated if the car could be moved to prevent congestion during this period
Have you lost a rabbit?
UPDATE: 13/9/18 Two similar rabbits have now been spotted together at the same spot.
An obviously domestic rabbit has been spotted over the last 2-3wks on Pilton Rd. ‘in and around’ the small 180* shaped recently cleared field which is on the left going towards Pilton and on the opposite side of the road to the Equestrian Centre

Agenda: NLPC EGM 20 Sep 18 – Agenda
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: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.

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.

A parishioner recently had a phone call from a call centre – the number shown was 01332913168.
The caller tried to give the impression that they were from some sort of official ‘emergency services response’ organisation, with teams touring the area to ‘explain’ how the emergency services prioritise and respond to emergency calls. Ambulance and police were mentioned.
At first, the parishoner thought that it might have something to do with the area emergency response planning which the PC has had some involvement with, and so they did not immediately hang up. However, it quickly became apparent that this was a home alarm systems sales pitch.
Please be aware of this type of approach if you receive a similar call.
