What's happening next week ?
The beginning of every month is particularly busy with both with Parish Council meetings , general Warwick District Council meetings and specialist meetings.
Next week we also have a visit by Sir Mark Worthington who is the Independent Construction Commissioner for HS2 and we will be discussing all of our local concerns whilst at the same time showing him the areas where we will have the most problems. This is part of the ongoing dialogue with HS2 and their contractor's to minimise any effect on our area facilitated by both Pam Redford & Trevor Wright.
In addition to this we will be attending the following :-
All our Parish Councils welcome residents so why not pop along and see what's happening in your area.

NHS Long Term Plan - survey
The NHS in Warwickshire is changing. With growing pressure on the NHS – people living longer, more people living with long-term conditions, and lifestyle choices affecting people’s health – changes are needed to make sure everybody gets the support they need.
The Government is investing an extra £20bn a year in the NHS. The NHS has produced a Long Term Plan, setting out all the things it wants health services to do better for people across the country, including making it easier for people to access support closer to home and via technology, doing more to help people stay well, and providing better support for people with cancer, mental health conditions, heart and lung diseases, long-term conditions, such as diabetes and arthritis, learning disabilities and autism, and for people as they get older and experience conditions such as dementia.
Now your local NHS needs to hear from you about what those changes should look like in your community.
Fill out this short survey:
And/or this survey if you have a long-term condition:
What work will they be doing?
They will be undertaking ground investigation surveys which will help us to finalise the detail design for the route to be constructed. The surveys will involve taking soil samples and bore holes in fields.
When will these works take place?
Working in line with the land owner’s requests, the ground investigations are planned to take place from April 2019 and will take around 7 weeks to complete.
Where will the surveys be taking place? The survey works will take place in multiple field locations adjacent to the Rugby Road near Cubbington.
Our ongoing workload
Most of the time we both work from home dealing with a variety of issues and problems from across all of our 6 wards, we deal with many different types of issues ranging from simple grass cutting issues to complex planning issues that have a major effect on our community. Sometimes our residents just need someone to talk through a local issue and that is what we are all about.
Out and about in our community
Pam Redford & Trevor Wright go around our community every week to make sure any problems that affect the community are acted upon. Below is a typical example a burst pipe /water leak on the Rugby road, apart from wasting water left to develop it will cause the road to deteriorate and degrade the pavement and road surface.
Meanwhile Trevor Wright comes across dumped rubbish near Stoneleigh.
