Litter and Flytipping

For many people, litter is the most important issue on the local environmental agenda. And rightly so. Figures show that this is a widespread and growing problem.

But, what is litter and fly-tipping, and who is responsible for clearing it up? And what can your parish do to help influence and improve the quality of your local environment?

RSPB Briefing Statement on Urban Gulls for Local Authorities

The RSPB recognises that the presence of gulls in some urban areas may result in some conflicts with people, eg, some adult birds `dive-bombing' people or pets when they feel their young are threatened or gulls breaking open plastic rubbish bags in a search for food. We believe that gull problems in an urban environment are best tackled by reducing the availability of food and nest sites because, if the features that attract gulls remain, any`vacancies' created by controlling existing gulls will simply be filled by other gulls moving in.

Planning Partnership: Consultation on the Proposed Changes to the National Planning Policy Framework

The Localism Act 2011 created the opportunity for local communities to develop Neighbourhood Plans, giving consideration to local housing need, land allocation and sustainable development to address long term community need. Having been through a rigorous process including a local referendum, these plans become supplementary planning guidance and carry significant weight in the development process. It provides a bottom up approach to local development and takes account of national planning policy, encouraging developers and communities to work together to provide locally focussed and sustainable developments.

The Partnership is alarmed that the proposed changes to the NPPF not only negate the localism principles but prescribe a system which prevents ocal circumstances from shaping the criteria for development.

A Guide for Communicating during Extreme Weather

Welcome to this good practice guide for councils communicating during periods of extreme weather. We have produced this in response to councils asking us for examples of good practice, how to develop a communications strategy and where they can go for further help and support.

Even the very best reputations can be damaged by single incidents and the impact of extreme weather on local communities can shape views about councils and their partners.

This guide is designed to help you develop a council-wide communications strategy to help your council prepare for, and react to, extreme weather and to ensure that you are able to communicate effectively with your residents.
