New County bridge A6006 Zouch documents from Leicestershire County Council.
Parishioners may remember that last year Rushcliffe Borough Council held a special public consultation meeting in the village hall, to seek views on their local plan part 2. This was because land in the village, namely the field at the end of Park lane and behind Charnwood fields had been marked for possible inclusion in the new plan.
The recent large fire at Hathernware industrial estate raised a few questions. The Parish Council does have in place a detailed and comprehensive emergency plan, with contingencies to deal with localised emergency situations. The plan can only be triggered however at the request of the main emergency services and the environment agency, generally in the scenario that for whatever reason the village may become isolated.
The large amount of fire fighters at the fire required sustenance and Councillor Andrew Brown in his role as a NCC member of The Fire and Rescue Services Authority was requested to source food and beverage. The Parish Council would like to pass on their thanks to Caroline Scriven of The Kings Head for providing food and drink at cost for 60 emergency personal within 30 minutes of being asked, and to clear up any rumours that maybe circulating - refused to accept payment for it ! Of course that was inappropriate and payment was made by Notts Fire & Rescue. Pasture Lane Stores also re-opened to provide items as needed by the emergency services, and the Baptist Church opened in case any villagers needed a place of refuge. In all the village responded in a fantastic way and again the Parish Council wishes to thanks all those that did their neighbourly bit to help.
