Dog owners across Bolsover District and North East Derbyshire District are being given the chance to get their dog microchipped and receive pet health advice for free as a mobile pet checking unit is touring the area in April.

The two councils have joined forces with the PDSA Petcheck Roadshow again to offer dog wellbeing check-ups, nail clipping and ear cleaning and advice – all free of charge and undertaken by an experienced veterinary nurse.

In addition to the veterinary nurse, the Councils Dog Warden will also be on hand to provide free microchipping to dogs - something which has been compulsory for all dogs since 2016.

Our Dog Warden will also be offering responsible dog ownership advice, canine behavioural advice and giving out free poop scoop bags at each of the roadshows.

The Roadshows will take place at:

  • The Hub, Shiners Way, South Normanton DE55 2AA on 24 April 2018 - 9am to 4pm
  • Kenning Park, Holmgate Road, Clay Cross S45 9PH on 25 April 2018 - 9am to 4pm
  • Hornthorpe Road, Eckington S21 4DS on 26 April 2018 - 9am to 4pm
  • Shirebrook Market Place, Market Street, Shirebrook NG20 8AA on 27 April 2018 - 9am to 4pm

We have been running the roadshows for a number of years now and an average of 200 dogs receive free microchips and 120 receive free pet health checks during the course of the four days.

The Petcheck roadshow would also over to see any puppies for their first wellbeing check, but if they are younger than eight-weeks old, leave them at home with their mum and pop along for advice.

Updated 16:23 (06/03/2018)

We aim to complete all missed black bins from last week by end of play on Wednesday 7 March 2018. Please leave your bin at the edge of your property for collection and no side waste will be taken. If your bin has not been collected by then please complete our missed bin form and we can investigate it.

We have received updated information from our burgundy bin contractors that they will aim to complete all missed burgundy bins from last week by end of play on Friday 9 March 2018. Please leave your bin at the edge of your property for collection. If your bin has not been collected by then please complete our missed bin form and we can investigate it.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.


Updated 14:52 (02/03/2018) 

Our bin crews have been working hard over the past couple of days, despite treacherous weather and road conditions. They have collected as many bins as possible on their scheduled collections, where it has been safe to do so.

However, for some of the days we had to temporarily suspended our waste collection. This is not a decision that was made lightly but the working conditions deteriatored and the safety of the public and our workforce was our priority.

We understand that many of the main roads are clear but the majority of our work takes place on side streets which are unsafe for us to drive upon. Our collection vehicles weigh up to 32 tonnes and if this vehicle starts to skid on a crowded residential street lives would, undoubtedly, be put at risk.

Missed bins

If the forecast is correct and the thaw comes this weekend any missed black bins from 28 February – 2 March that have not already been collected by the end of today, then we would advise you to please leave it in an accessible place at the edge of your property from 6am on Monday (5 March) and we will collect it as soon as the road and weather conditions improve. All scheduled collections for w/c 5 March will take place as normal.

For any missed burgundy bins from 28 February – 2 March that have not already been collected by the end of today, please leave your bin in a safe position at the edge of your property and this will be collected as soon as possible.

Green bin collections are due to start again w/c 5 March 2018. To help us catch up with missed black bin collections we are diverting some of our crews from green bin collections. Figures from previous years have indicated that collection rates are low so if your green bin is not collected on your scheduled date please take this back to your property and present it on your next scheduled collection date, as our priority is to collect missed black bins.

All the above is of course weather dependent and we hope you appreciate and understand why some collections have been missed and we are working hard to collect any missed bins as soon as possible.

The forecast for tomorrow at present is currently a low probability for further significant snow, but the issue we have is the cold weather and a possibility of ice and strong cold winds.

Our Go! Active facility is now closed to allow staff the chance to drive home safely. All classes and swimming lessons have been cancelled for today. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Our Contact Centres at Bolsover, Clowne and Shirebrook are currently open but we are operating on a skeleton staff basis, so we advise people unless they have an emergency not to come to the buildings or telephone us.

All bin collections (black and burgundy) have been cancelled and we are working on plans on how we will pick up those bins we have missed due to the weather.


Updated 08:45 (01/03/2018)

We have had over 200+ call outs regarding heating systems not working with the majority due to freezing condensates. 

The majority of combination boilers are fitted with a buoy system which allows residents to bypass the frozen condensate until it unfreezes. However in most cases residents seem to have forgotten they have them or how to operate them.

If you contacts us regarding their heating/hot water not working please refer to your Repairs Handbook (that all tenants should have) as there is a script within the keyfax repairs diagnostic system that explains this in more detail.


Updated 07:37 (01/03/2018)

Bin collections will not take place today due to the ongoing severe weather conditions and the forecast for more snow this morning. We will try and pick up any missed bins as soon as we are able and it is safe to do so. Our Go! Active leisure facility is open as normal.

With the Government’s ambition to see a new generation of council housing built, we are ahead of the game and tackling this issue head on by investing millions of pounds into building new properties.

In excess of £12 million is being spent on two projects aimed at reducing the housing problem and providing good quality, modern council houses and family homes for market sale.

In 2015, we embarked upon our B@Home project with Robert Woodhead Ltd to build 100 council houses over four-years, a 2% increase on their overall housing stock. The programme has already seen 33 new homes built in Creswell, Shirebrook, Tibshelf and Blackwell with a further 37 under construction in Shirebrook.

We are well on our way to achieving a target of 100 new homes by March 2019 and are now looking at potential sites to ensure future generations have the ability to live in good quality affordable homes within the District.

Cabinet Member for Housing Councillor Mary Dooley said, “Instead of sitting back and not dealing with the problem, we did something about it. We have always been bold in putting our money where our mouth is and the delivery of 33 homes already shows that.

“These homes are not the ‘shoeboxes’ delivered by some housebuilders in recent years. But are large, high quality, family homes which meet the lifetime homes standard meaning they’ll be suitable for all stages of a tenant’s life.”

These new Council houses are all let on secure tenancies, at an affordable rent and for the first time include one bedroom houses, large four bedroom houses and fully adapted bungalows to directly meet the housing need in the District.

We also agreed to build a further 28 new homes across eight sites, including for the first time, the delivery of high quality family homes for sale on the open market, through Dragonfly Development Ltd.

We established Dragonfly Development Ltd in 2017 to enable it to become more financially self-sufficient by developing commercial opportunities which make it less reliant on government funding.

The company’s first developments have received planning permission and use council land at South Normanton and Pinxton, with work due to start soon. The developments will see 10 properties at Meadow Lane, South Normanton and 10 properties at Park Lane, Pinxton which will be available to buy towards the end of 2018.

Cabinet Member for Social Enterprise, Councillor John Ritchie said, “Council funding is drying up and the private sector are not delivering at present. They buy up areas and land bank it for the future, but this does not help our local communities. So, we have to think outside the box, be imaginative and more business-minded, that’s why we have set up this company.

“Not only are we building good quality homes that we can then sell on the open market, but any profit that is made can then be re-invested to provide more high-quality developments and help secure the Council’s financial future.”

 

Passengers using taxi’s licensed by Bolsover and North East Derbyshire District Councils can be safe in the knowledge that all their drivers must now undertake mandatory safeguarding training.

The training is to improve public safety and identify potential risks to vulnerable adults and children. The training covers the following key areas: 

  • Understanding the need to protect vulnerable adults, young people and children
  • Identifying possible victims of abuse and exploitation by understanding indicators of risk
  • Identifying sources of advice and how to report concerns
  • Understanding responsibilities in relation to personal safety and security

Cabinet Member for Community Safety and Street services, Councillor Brian-Murray-Carr said, “Drivers need to command the highest level of confidence before they transport passengers – especially those who may be vulnerable. It is essential that we take seriously our responsibility to determine whether someone is a ‘fit and proper’ person to hold a licence.” 

In addition, Councillor Michael Gordon, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Licensing at North East Derbyshire District Council said, “Everyone is becoming aware of the well-publicised issues relating to Child Sexual Exploitation. These are awful crimes, and we have a duty to assist the Taxi and Private Hire Trade and the public in tackling this issue and to protect those who are vulnerable. We need the help of taxi and private hire drivers and operators to identify those who commit these crimes and to identify vulnerable people who are at risk.”

The decision to introduce the training was made following the publication of the Jay report into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham and the subsequent Casey report into Rotherham Council’s exercise of its functions on governance, children and young people, and taxi and private hire licensing. 

Both reports indicated that licensed vehicles played a prominent role in the issues in Rotherham. As a key element of the local transport system, taxi and private hire drivers are well placed to identify vulnerable people who may need support.

The feedback received from the taxi trade so far has been overwhelmingly positive.

A taxi driver attending one of the sessions, said, “I welcome this training which will help me to identify signs that someone may be vulnerable and in need of help.”
