Stow Surgery – Revised Planning Application

A revised planning application, for the provision of a new doctor’s surgery on the land known locally as the Gypsy Field, has been validated by Cotswold District Council (CDC) and the window for public comment is now open.

We have been overwhelmed by the response from patients, past and present regarding the refusal of the planning application back in April. This has spurred us onto continue the fight to provide modern, contemporary medical facilities for Stow and the surrounding villages.

We are pleased to report that revised application for the development of a new surgery on the Gypsy Field Site has been submitted to Cotswold district Council (CDC).

The Council have now opened the case for public consultation and we would b every grateful if you could make comment on the proposal. You can do this by either logging onto the CDC website or by writing, se details at the bottom of the page.

Finally, we feel honoured to be part of this community and like some of the local politicians have indicated, we hope to see diggers in Stow in the not too distant future.

Dr T.J.G. Healy

CDC – Litter Awareness

Cotswold District Council is preparing for an upturn in activities which generate waste. As well as promoting the composting of garden waste through the garden waste collection service, the Council is urging residents and visitors to follow some simple steps which will HELP ensure that the area is free of unsightly litter.

Hold onto your carrier bag, use it to collect up your Empty cans and bottles and other Litter such as sandwich packets and snack wrappers then Put the contents in an appropriate recycling or waste bin.

Posters based on this HELP theme have been sent to Parish and Town Clerks for display across the District, and the Council will be reinforcing the message through its website and social media.

Head of Environment at the Council, Claire Locke, comments:

“Nobody likes to see our beautiful Cotswold towns and villages marred by unnecessary and thoughtless littering – it spoils the landscape and it also poses potential dangers for a wide range of wildlife. It only takes a few moments to dispose of litter sensibly. The Council provides waste bins across the whole District, and we are ensured that they are emptied on a more regular basis during Spring and Summer.

“If we catch people littering in the District we will not hesitate to take action against them. If found guilty of a littering offence, the penalty can be high – a maximum of £2,500 for persistent offenders – and the damage to a person’s reputation can be very costly in many ways when we name and shame them in public. The message is clear – if you have litter, please take responsibility for its safe disposal.”
