Council grant shines a light on Bugbrooke residents

A council grant of £12,000 has been awarded to Bugbrooke Parish Council to install environmentally-friendly street lights in the village.

After the parish council consulted with residents, they approached South Northamptonshire Council (SNC) with the project idea, which proposed to replace the existing bulbs with energy-efficient street lights that are more in keeping with the village.

The £12,000 SNC Community Grant will be used towards the installation of the new lights, which will help save electricity and maintenance costs, as well as reduce light pollution while providing a well-lit environment for longer hours. 

Cllr Peter Rawlinson, SNC’s portfolio holder for finance and procurement, said: “The council works very hard to ensure that villages and communities are preserved and enhanced for residents. The project was well supported by the village and an investment like this will have both economic and environmental benefits.

“Particularly with the darker mornings and nights drawing in, switching to energy-efficient lights will ensure they can keep the lights on from dusk to dawn, while still reducing energy costs at the same time – a win-win situation.”

SNC Community Grants are mainly funded by the New Homes Bonus (NHB), a grant paid to local authorities by central government for every new home built within the district.

They are available to any not-for-profit organisations located in or associated with the district.

A wide range of projects and activities may be eligible for help, including capital projects (buildings and infrastructure), as well as smaller projects such as supporting the purchase of much needed equipment or the delivery of local schemes.

The deadline for the current round of funding is 30 November 2016.

Event Organisation Advice from SNDC

Following a recent fatality involving a bouncy castle at a fair (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-essex-35906226) the Commercial & Business Support Team have produced the attached guidance to help organisers of village fetes and similar events. 

 These events are great community occasions and it is hoped the advice sheets and checklists will help organisers consider some of the key hazards at their event.  If the Parish or Town Council is not directly involved in organising these events, I would be grateful if you could forward the information to the relevant person.

 More detailed information can be found on the Health and Safety Executive website at www.hse.gov.uk/event-safety/index.htm.  or on the Northamptonshire Resilience Forum website under the Planning Events Tab https://www.northants.police.uk/lrf/

 Please contact us if you need any guidance or would like further information.
