DUNHOLME PARISH COUNCIL

 

 The monthly Parish Council meeting took place on Wednesday 19th March 2014.  Nine Parish Councillors and 3 members of the public were in attendance.

 

 Planning Applications Received:-

131052 – The Rowans, 19 Market Rasen Road – Extensions and alterations to existing dwelling

130961 – 16 Kennington Close - first floor extension over garage and single storey extensions to front, including front porch        

 

 Annual Parish Meeting – Wednesday 16th April 2014

This year’s Annual Parish Meeting will be taking place on Wednesday 16th April 2014 at 8pm.  Before the meeting a short presentation will be given from DIG (Dunholme Improvement Group) and their aspirations for the future.  It is bound to be interesting to see how the village may be changing.  Following the meeting the Annual Community Award will be presented, the winner of this annual award has now been chosen.  A buffet, wine and soft drinks will be made available after the APM. A short report will be given from the council Chairman about the projects undertaken within the last year and the hopes for the coming year, followed by a report from the Responsible Financial Officer who will give a brief report on the income and expenditure of the Parish Council Please put the date in your diary and join us.

 

 Help Wanted

The Parish Councillors had new planters put in around the war memorial and church bridges last year.  Whilst we get them planted up, we do struggle to keep them maintained as no councillors live around that area.  Is there anyone who lives near to this part of the village that is willing to pop down on hot days and water these planters once they have been reflowered?  Water can be collected from the beck if you don’t want to walk with a heavy watering can.

 

 The Lord Nelson Site

The project on the old Lord Nelson site is now well under way.  A provisional date of mid August has been given the opening of the new Co-Op shop.  The Parish Council have secured a financial donation from the Lincolnshire Co-Op to purchase some new picnic seats which will hopefully be situated at Monks Wood. 

 

 The next meeting is on Wednesday 16th April 2014 at 7pm (Please note the change in time due to the APM following this months meeting)– so if you have any issues you wish to bring to Councillors attention or any ideas you would like to put forward, why not come along and join in. 

 

 The agenda is posted on the Notice Board at least three days prior to each meeting and the first 15 minutes of the meeting is an open public forum.

 

 If you wish to contact the Parish Council please write to The Clerk at 20 Monckton Way, Dunholme, Lincoln,LN2 3QL, e-mail on dunholmepc@btinternet.com or telephone 01673 862738.

 

 

Save money on your gas & electric bills with
Lincolnshire Energy Switch scheme

 

 Gas and electricity customers in Lincolnshire could save money on their home energy bills through the new collective Lincolnshire Energy Switch scheme (LESS).

 Seven authorities in the county have jointly launched the campaign that invites residents to join forces and potentially save hundreds of pounds on their bills.

 Energy suppliers can offer lower energy prices to a collective contract made up of thousands of customers. The more people that sign up, the lower the energy prices that could be offered. People who have never switched energy supplier and are on a standard tariff are likely to make the greatest savings.

 

 The scheme is easy to join by registering your details at:

www.west-lindsey.gov.uk/switch

 

 Alternatively residents can call 01522 782067 or register at their local council in West Lindsey, Boston, East Lindsey, Lincoln, North Kesteven and South Kesteven.

 In West Lindsey, residents can also visit the council offices to register. Opening times at the Guildhall, Gainsborough are Monday and Tuesday, 8.30am-5pm, Wednesday 8.30am-3.30pm, Thursday, 8.30am-6pm, Friday, 8.30am-4.30pm

 Once the registration deadline has passed on Monday February 17, the tariff of the lowest bidding energy supplier will be offered to residents. Residents are then able to choose to accept the offer or not.

 People on pre-payment meters can also choose to switch.   

 Once registered, there is no obligation to switch. When the auction has been completed customers will receive an offer letter by email or post if registration was made ‘offline’.

 Customers then have four weeks to confirm they wish to switch supplier by following the instructions in the offer email or returning a signed form by post.

 Cllr Jeff Summers, leader of West Lindsey District Council said: “We are encouraging as many residents to choose to make the change to the Lincolnshire Energy Switch scheme and to work with iChoosr for a community switch here in Lincolnshire.

 “We are always keen to look at new ways to help our residents reduce their monthly outgoings and start a process to help those most in need address real fuel poverty.

 “Remember registration closes on February 17 so register to switch as soon as possible.”
