Some people think that flooding will never happen to them. The fact is – it could. The Environment Agency’s flood action campaign is being held in early November to encourage people to prepare for flooding. The campaign will promote the simple steps that people can take to protect themselves, their family and homes from flooding, from checking their flood risk to preparing a personal flood plan.

Top Politician Set To Decide Rolleston Planning App

It has been announced that the Secretary of State for communities and local government will now decide the fate of this controversial planning appeal. Andrew Griffiths MP has received written confirmation that Eric Pickles would now have the final say on the College Fields application in Rolleston, after a four-day hearing decided to uphold East Staffordshire Borough Council’s decision to refuse the planning application. Read more in the Burton Mail article (24 March) here.

Update: The Secretary of State will not be in a position to reach a decision on this application by 26 August 2014 as previously notified. However, the case remains under careful consideration and the Secretary of State hopes to be in a position to write again to parties as soon as possible. Read more in the Burton Mail articles 'College fields decision delay leaves Rolleston residents in limbo over village development' and 'Burton and South Derbyshire College faces finance issues over Rolleston plan delay'.

Both the threat and the reality of large scale developments within the village and surrounding areas is never far away. Read more about it in the planning section pages.
