Consultation on the Closure of Lydney and Dilke Hospitals

NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group and NHS Gloucestershire Care Services have produced a consultation booklet outlining the plan to replace Lydney and Dilke hospitals with a more modern facility in a location to be decided. NHS Gloucestershire are asking for feedback on the plans from Forest of Dean residents. You can give your feedback on the following link.

Smell from Castleford Hill Care Home.

Have you noticed, or been affected by, the sewerage smell from Castleford Hill Care Home?
The Parish Council has received complaints over a long period of time and duly reported them to the Environment Regulatory Service (ERS) at the Forest of Dean District Council. The service has been in contact with the care home over a period of time and small improvements have been made. However, to progress the issue further ERS has to react to complaints from members of the public who are affected by the nuisance. So, if you are one of those, you can complete a nuisance log sheet and send it to ERS. Alternatively, you can complain directly to ERS at the forest of Dean District Council 01594 810000.

Monthly Financial Sheet

The Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government has requested that all local authorities publish on their web site details of all payments made in excess of £500.  In order for complete transparency Tidenham Parish Council will, from January 2011, publish the Monthly Financial Sheet issued at each full Council meeting.  This sheet identifies monies held at the beginning of the financial year (1st April), income and expenditure for the year together with the current balances in the Council accounts.  Each individual sheet identifies the payments which are being authorised in that month and for which approval is being sought.

Quality Parish Council status

Tidenham Parish Council was proud to be one of only four parishes in Gloucestershire and only one of five hundred and fifty parishes in the country to have been awarded Quality Parish Council status in 2008.
In order to achieve this status, a portfolio of the Council’s procedures, aims and ambitions had to be compiled and then approved by the Gloucestershire Association of Parish and Town Councils under guidelines set by the National Association of Local Councils and the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA).
The status is held for four years when a further portfolio has to be approved to ensure that all procedures continue to fulfill the stringent guidelines set by legislation.  The Council decided not to proceed to apply for re-accreditation in 2012 as the perceived benefits to QPS Councils had not materialized and also due to the quite substantial costs involved.  However the procedures adopted by Council continue to conform as closely as possible to the standards required for such status.
