Edward Timpson – The Eddisbury Report (No 5)

This is a link to the latest report by our MP and contains some interesting topics, not the least of which is ‘Pothole Mapping’.  You can open the report(s) through the link below

Dear Friends,

Welcome to the fifth edition of The Eddisbury Report! Particularly to my newest subscribers.

I hope you made the best of the summer and what Cheshire and the UK had to offer. For those who made it abroad, I hope you weren’t too troubled by the pandemic. Either way, thank you for supporting our hospitality and travel industries over the season.

This email newsletter has been designed to give you a quick and easy way of keeping in touch with what I’m doing on your behalf as your local Member of Parliament.

In this issue you’ll find information about more important funding announcements for Eddisbury to help with the pandemic recovery: a £2 billion Kickstart fund to help create jobs for young people in towns like Winsford, and more funding to tackle the scourge of potholes on Cheshire roads from the Government’s new £2.5 billion road safety fund.

You’ll also find a link to my speech on support for the weddings industry in Cheshire, which is in desperate need of financial support due to the necessary restrictions placed on large social gatherings where guests want to catch up with each other at close quarters. I am in touch with local business owners and Government ministers alike to try and find a way through this complex problem.

Please do forward this to others who you know would find it useful. They can sign up themselves on my website, which is also a great place to find all my latest news, advice and parliamentary activity.

You can also follow me on social media using the links below.

Stay safe,

Edward Timpson CBE MP

News from the Parish Council

We have a few bits of news to impart much of which will be good news;

Cotebrook Green – Community Orchard:  With the help of Councillor Moore-Dutton we have been able to arrange the Transfer of Title for the green immediately behind the garages on Woodlands Close from CWaC to the Parish Council.  This means that our goal of creating a ‘community orchard / space’ for the residents of Cotebrook can, at last, become a reality.  We will be asking your views of exactly what you would like to see there – orchard, seating, shrubbery, wild flowers etc. but if you have any ideas that you would like to put forward please let either Marian Atkinson (01829 760698‬ marian.atkinsonuk@gmail.com ) or Frank Tunney (07860 917446 utkintonpc@gmail.com ) Know and we will collate all the ideas.

Cotebrook Speed Reduction – We have agreed the works to be done to make the area shown here; a 30 mph Zone.  It comes at a cost (£1,200) which the Parish would have to fund.  But we hope the work can proceed quickly.

Utkinton Flashing Speed Sign – Quarry Bank; The Parish Council has persuaded CWaC to relocate the 30mph Solar Sign from outside ‘Southley’ on Quarry Bank to the north side of the bus shelter on John Street.  This will, we hope be undertaken soon.

Utkinton 20 mph Zone; The Parish Council petitioned CWaC for the Zone to be extended from the junction of Quarry Bank / John street to just above the junction between John Street and Big Field Lane for safety reasons.  This was turned down by both CWaC and Cheshire Police.  We could, if we so wished, extend the zone ourselves at the cost to the PC of around £2,000 but doing so would render the WHOLE of the 20mph zone unenforceable.

Utkinton and Cotebrook Draft Neighbourhood Plan: CWaC informed us that this is likely to proceed to Neighbourhood Plan publicity consultations (regulation 16) shortly. We are currently reviewing our procedures and considering how we can minimise any risks, regarding access to documents.  This is likely to happen during October and copies of the Consultation Papers will be made available locally and also on the Council and Parish Council Websites.

CWaC will be reviewing our submission documents over the next couple of weeks. Once done they will write to the Parish Council formally to confirm receipt and provide more information on the consultation. We are hoping to start the consultation early October 2020, depending on any additional measures we will put in place (we are aiming to do this will be in parallel with another NDP group who are at the same stage as yourselves).

New Covid Regulations

Yesterday Her Majesty’s Government announced a series of new measures and you can read them here; https://www.gov.uk/government/news/coronavirus-covid-19-what-has-changed-9-september   

If, however, you cannot access them, they are posted in full below;

“The government has a plan to control the virus and protect the public, as well as keeping the economy and society open. That plan is working: with great collective effort, we have reduced infections significantly from its peak, and enabled the return of more normality to our lives. This is not the time for complacency; we have seen big increases in the spread of the virus in Europe and other countries. With cases increasing in the UK, we all – businesses, individuals, and government – need to take action to suppress the virus.

It is critical that everybody observes the following key behaviours:

  • HANDS – Wash your hands regularly and for 20 seconds.
  • FACE – Wear a face covering in indoor settings where social distancing may be difficult and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
  • SPACE – Stay 2 metres apart from people you do not live with where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place.

The government has announced new measures to suppress the virus and keep the number of infections down:

  • From Monday 14 September, you must not meet with people from other households socially in groups of more than 6. This will apply indoors and outdoors, including in private homes. This change will simplify and clarify the rules on social gatherings, so they are easier to understand and easier for the police to enforce. There will be a limited number of exemptions. COVID-19 Secure venues, such as places of worship, restaurants and hospitality venues, can still host larger numbers in total but groups of up to 6 must not mix or form larger groups. This rule will not apply to individual households or support bubbles of more than 6 who will still be able to gather together. Education and work settings are unaffected, and organised team sports will still be able to proceed, as will weddings and funerals up to 30. From Monday, this limit will be enforceable in law.
  • Businesses will have a clear duty to support NHS Test and Trace. From 18 September, it will be mandatory for certain businesses to have a system to collect NHS Test and Trace data, and keep this for 21 days. Core COVID-19 Secure requirements will be mandated for hospitality businesses, and egregious breaches enforced. The government has also published simplified COVID-19 Secure guidance, available here.
  • The government will support Local Authorities and police forces to respond to breaches of COVID-19 Secure guidelines. We will launch a register of newly qualified and recently retired Environmental Health Officers (EHOs) so that Local Authorities can recruit more quickly and fill any gaps. In addition, we will introduce COVID-19 Secure Marshals to help local authorities support social distancing in towns and city centres.
  • The government will take steps to improve compliance with border requirements. We will simplify the Passenger Locator Form needed for travelling to the UK, and take measures to ensure passengers have filled out their form before departure. Border Force will step up and target their enforcement efforts at the border to ensure arrivals are complying with the rules.
  • The government will review plans to pilot larger audiences in venues this month. Planned sports pilot events will be limited to smaller, safer numbers, with strict conditions to ensure social distancing, and will not take place in areas where incidence is high. We will review our intention to return audiences to stadia and conference centres from 1 October.
  • The government will restrict the opening hours of premises, initially in local lockdown areas, with the option of national action in the future. This has been introduced in Bolton, following a steep rise in cases, and will seek to restrict activities that may lead to a spread in the virus.

These measures apply to England – but there may be different rules if you live in an area under local lockdown and you should check those rules here. If you are in WalesScotland and Northern Ireland, different rules may apply”.
