VACANCIES FOR SAPPERTON PARISH COUNCILLORS
Would you like to be a Parish Councillor? Due to several recent resignations, we only had 4 Councillors in the lead up to the Election date of 2nd May. Only three nominations were received from current Councillors willing to continue to serve, which luckily maintains the Council as quarate, As less nominations were received than places available, Sapperton Parish Council is uncontested and no formal Election process is required. We are now advertising to fill the other 4 positions by co-option where interested parties can apply without the need for a formal Election.
If you would like to put yourself forward, please feel free to contact any of the current Councillors or the Parish Clerk to have a chat about the role.
Even if you have only vaguely thought about it in the past, NOW is a great time to act!
HOW TO PREPARE FOR EMERGENCIES

Across the District communities are always looking to improve their resilience in the event of an emergency, and a booklet has been produced by the Gloucestershire Local Resilience Forum to make the task easier.
The ‘Are You Ready?’ booklet provides clear practical advice to help people prepare for and respond to an emergency. Advice includes: devising a family emergency plan; looking out for neighbours; establishing ‘emergency friends; community alarm systems; and coping with severe weather, security incidents and loss of power.

ACCESSING THE COTSWOLD DISTRICT LOCAL PLAN 2011-31
Following the adoption of the Cotswold District Local Plan (2011-31) on 3 August 2018 the District Council has published an online interactive version of the Local Plan on its website.
The interactive Local Plan can be accessed via the District Council’s Local Plan webpage using the following link:
The interactive Local Plan contains the same policies and supporting text that were adopted by the District Council. These are presented in online format and are supplemented with illustrations and an interactive policies map.
Users of the policies map can zoom into their area to see any land that is allocated for development; is protected for a particular use; or is covered by another policy designation. The policy layers can be switched on and off and different base maps can be applied, including aerial photography and Ordnance Survey.
It is also hoped that this new interactive tool will assist public involvement and policy presentation.
Members of the public can buy a hard copy of the Local Plan for £15 (not including postage and packing). Alternatively, they can download the PDF version of the Local Plan or view the interactive Local Plan for free.
Anyone wishing to purchase the Local Plan can do so by contacting the District Council’s Customer Services team on 01285 623551 or by visiting Cotswold District Council at:
