Consultation: Strengthening police powers to tackle unauthorised encampments

If anyone has any comments to make on this issue please contact Westow parish council on: info@westow.org.uk

 The Home Office has issued a new consultation on strengthening police powers to tackle unauthorised encampments. The consultation document can be found here.   NALC has produced an accompanying briefing (attached) summarising the consultation, NALC’s previous views on the matter and the key questions NALC will be responding to.

If this is a matter that concerns your Council or Parish Meeting, please respond direct to the consultation and also please send a copy of your response to NALC as it can then incorporate your views into its submission.  Please send all responses to Jessica.Lancod-frost@nalc.gov.uk by Wednesday 19 February 2020.

 

Consultation: Tackling Loneliness

THE NORTH YORKSHIRE STRATEGY FOR TACKLING LONELINESS – A CONSULTATION

The draft Loneliness Strategy for North Yorkshire is now available for consultation.

Councils and parish meetings are invited to review and feedback on this strategic framework for preventing and tackling loneliness in North Yorkshire.  They are also invited to forward the details of this consultation to voluntary groups, charities and other organisations in their parish.

This is a county-wide framework which has been developed as part of The Loneliness Campaign, a project funded through the National Lottery Community Fund, North Yorkshire County Council and Defra to help support and inspire more local action to ‘turbo charge’ the county’s response to tackling loneliness.

The framework can be viewed and commented on by clicking the links below:

TLC County-Wide Strategic Framework Consultation

The consultation for this strategy is open until midnight on Sunday 1 December 2019.

If you have any questions about The Loneliness Campaign or experience any problems accessing the survey please email tlc@communityfirstyorkshire.org.uk.

 

Swift boxes

If anyone would like a nesting box for swifts there are two available. They need to be assembled (which is quite straightforward) and advice is available. Just email info@westow.org.uk.
