Dated this thirteenth day of November 2013.
How you can help prevent unwanted telephone sales calls Nottinghamshire Police Pre Crime Unit would like to make residents aware of the Telephone Preference Service. We appreciate that some of you may already be aware of this service, however, for those that aren’t, please read the information below regarding the service below. The Telephone Preference Service (TPS) helps you to make sure your telephone number is no longer available to organisations who may telephone you with offers and information you do not wish to receive. Registration with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) is free. Under Government legislation introduced on 1 May 1999 it is unlawful to make direct marketing calls to individuals who have indicated that they do not want to receive such calls. You can either do this by contacting companies directly and asking them not to phone you or you can register with a central service such as the Telephone Preference Service to stop all such calls. Before you apply however, you may want to consider that registering could prevent you from receiving information which you would really like to have about relevant and worthwile opportunities. Registration will prevent organisations who regard you as a customer from contacting you again, unless you have previously told them that you have no objection to them calling you. Registering with the Telephone Preference Service will not stop calls from market research organisations. If you also wish to stop these calls or any other non direct marketing calls, you will need to contact each company directly. There are three ways to register with the Telephone Preference Service; The quickest way you can register is on the TPS website at www.tpsonline.org.uk and by clicking on the link to register. Alternatively you can call the registration line 0845 070 0707 (local call rate). You will be asked to record the telephone number you wish to register and the system will then confirm the registration. It will take up to 28 days for your registration to take effect. You will remain registered on file unless you change your telephone number.
At a meeting on the11th July 2012 at Trowell Parish hall a group was formed to oppose the proposed open casting at Shortwood Farm Trowell. Further details will be given as they become available, but so far the following has been agreed:
- An Action Group has formally been established and now has a Chair, A Secretary and a Treasurer.
- They have already been in touch with NCC (Jonathan Smith) and have been given up to 20th July to submit a plan of action, which will be considered as potential evidence for an extension of the consultation.
- Dr Doddy (A local GP and County Councillor) has agreed to follow up the Health Impact Appraisal and will also consult with the Nottm West Clinical Commissioning Group (soon to be commissioners of local healthcare).
- There will be a campaign to raise awareness about the health risks with parents via school – planned for early September.
- I have promised them space in the next Trowell Times and a link to their planned website on the Parish Council web site.
- They are planning their own e-mail account and facebook.
- Dr Doddy came up with the name SOCO – Shortwood (farm) Open Cast Opposition.
Despite what you may have heard or read, the Parish Council has been consistent over the years in opposing any new developments in the green belt. This policy was again reinforced with a vote at the full Parish Council meeting on the 10th January 2012 opposing the current proposition to build in Trowell. Please note that the Parish Council can only comment on planning applications, the decision on granting permission or otherwise rests with Broxtowe Borough Council. It is also the Borough Council that decides the core strategy, and any future local plans.
