Who to contact about issues in the village such as fly-tipping, potholes, and overgrown vegetation.

The Parish Council is aware that it can be difficult to know who you should contact when you notice an issue in the village such as fly-tipping, potholes, broken grit bins, damaged road signs, and overgrown vegetation.  Unfortunately, there isn’t a single point of contact for such issues as they are all owned or managed by different organisations but the Parish Council would like to try to offer some guidance to help make the reporting of issues simpler.

Assets that the Parish Council own and are therefore responsible for:

Playing Field and all its contents

Streetlights

3 noticeboards (outside playing field, outside the pub, on Village Hall)

Grit bins

Bench opposite The Kitchen

Bench on Walnut Bank

Bench near Sourlands Pool

Bench outside Village Hall

Old Water Pump near ‘The Little House’

Dog waste bins

Defibrillator and defib housing (old telephone box at entrance to ‘The Kitchen’)

 

Services that the Parish Council arrange/are responsible for:

Emptying of dog waste bins

Grass cutting of all areas owned by the Parish Council

Grass cutting of all areas that are the responsibility of the County Council

Streetlighting

Maintaining sufficient access space on the permissive path from Walnut Bank to Dassett Road

If you notice an issue with any assets or services managed by the Parish Council (lists below) please contact the Parish Clerk on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or Tel: 07419 126 206.

Most issues that aren’t the responsibility of the Parish Council fall to the County Council and should be reported using their online reporting system - https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/reportit or if you have problems using the online system call them on 01926 410 410. If the issue you are reporting is not the responsibility of the County Council (for example waste collections, and fly-tipping) then their reporting system should direct you to the appropriate place – using the example of waste collections, and fly-tipping this would be Stratford District Council.

Any concerns about Orbit owned land or property should be sent directly to Orbit Housing.

Process for raising items with the parish council

It has come to the attention of the parish council that some parishioners (and councillors!) find it frustrating how long it can take for projects to be completed and concerns discussed by the parish council. Unfortunately the parish council is restricted by many rules and regulations that slow things down and the frustration is felt by all.

The parish council would like to try to reduce this frustration for everyone and the best way we can do this is to try to ensure that parishioners and councillors are aware of the basic rules we have to follow and try to work with them.
