Broughton and Old Dalby Parish Neighbourhood Plan Referendum

Thu, 15 Mar 2018 21:41 by Lucy Flavin

The date for the Neighbourhood Plan referendum has been set for 12th April 2018

What is the Neighbourhood Plan?

In simple terms it is a document that:

  • Sets out policies that are to be used by Melton Borough Council when deciding on planning applications so carries real legal weight
  • Has been developed by the local community, rather than the Local Planning Authority (Melton Borough Council), and therefore reflects the priorities and wishes of people living and working in the Parish as far as possible within the context of planning regulations and requirements.

What would a YES vote mean? More »

If a simple majority vote YES to the Plan in the Referendum, it will become part of the statutory Development Plan for the Borough. Any planning decisions and conditions eg. environmental, within our Parish must be made with reference to our Neighbourhood Plan.

What would a NO vote mean?

If a simple majority vote NO to the Plan, the local protections and conditions stated in the Policies will not apply and MBC will make planning decisions based upon national policies and Borough priorities.

You can view a copy of the Plan by clicking on the link below or read a paper copy of the Plan, available in: Old Dalby Village Hall, Nether Broughton Village Hall, Queensway Scout Hut, The Crown Inn Old Dalby and The Anchor Inn Nether Broughton

Fraud against the Elderly and Vulnerable

Mon, 26 Feb 2018 12:27 by Lucy Flavin

The Parish Council has received the following information from Leicestershire Police;

A Fraud MO is being conducted against elderly vulnerable people involving a male caller, described by various victims as having an Indian or foreign accent, contacting the vulnerable person knowing their name, address and bank in order to try to get them to withdraw money from the bank. More »

Offences have continued across the force with a potential further 14 incidents being called into the Police over the last few weeks. This is likely to be higher in number due to some incidents being reported directly to Action Fraud and others being unreported.

A couple of variations to the method have been observed, these being the victim being persuaded to transfer their money into the suspects bank account and also where the scam initially began as a BT/TalkTalk representative rather than from the Police/bank.

If you have any concerns the Parish Council would urge you not to share any information and contact the police. » Less
