Borough Council’s Grant Scheme for Young People

Telford & Wrekin Council’s grant scheme for young people is now open and seeking applicants looking for financial support up to the maximum value of £1,000. 

The grant aims to support children and young people living in the Borough of Telford and Wrekin up to the age of 25 years old who fall into one of three categories – education, training and/or employment, performing arts and culture or sport programmes. 

The panel is particularly interested in children and young people who have overcome adversity to reach their aspirations and goals, not just those competing or achieving at the highest levels. 

The application needs a 500 word statement by a tutor, mentor or coach, visit http://bit.ly/Youthfunding
Closing date 5pm, Friday November 30

We’d like as many young people to apply as possible and appreciate your support in helping to promote this scheme for the borough’s young people.

Best regards,

Maria

Wrockwardine Parish Council is NOT the Planning Authority; this is the function of The Borough Council. The view of the Parish Council does not carry any extra weight (over and above any other resident) nor is it guaranteed to be taken into account when any decision is made by the Borough Council. The Parish Council is simply invited, by the Borough Council, to give its views on planning applications. If a planning application affects you, or you have a view which you wish to be taken into consideration by the Planning Officers of the Borough Council then it is important that you convey that opinion directly to the relevant authority (which is Telford and Wrekin Council). The Parish Council is unable to “pass on” the views of others to the Planning Authority but it may take into account the views of residents of the Parish when deciding upon its own position on any particular application.

Civil Parking Enforcement

The Borough Council is undertaking a new consultation about Civil Parking Enforcement (CPE). They think it will affect the people of the parish of Wrockwardine. You can find a full overview online at www.telford.gov.uk/parkingenforcement

Overview

Currently, West Mercia Police has the power to enforce illegal parking penalties but they often don’t have the resources to do so. The Borough Council want to know what you think of inconsiderate and illegal parking in the borough, what the problems are and where they are likely to be.

The Borough Council want to take over the enforcement role, known as CPE for both parking on roads, pavements and in council owned car parks.

To do that, they must apply to the Department for Transport to have these powers transferred from West Mercia Police to the Borough Council. As part of that application, the Borough Council must prepare a business case that incorporates the views of local councils, residents, workers, visitors and businesses in the borough.

Get involved

The Borough Council want as many views as possible during the consultation which starts today, Monday 17 September 2018. It will run over four weeks ending 23:59 Sunday 14 October 2018.

Please tell them your views by completing the online survey. View more information about the key milestones and FAQs.

Please also share with as many people as you can www.telford.gov.uk/parkingenforcement.

Questions

You may have particular views about the implementation. Whilst the Borough Council welcome those via the survey and FAQ you may also want to speak to someone. Please let them know if that is the case – yourviewsmatter@telford.gov.uk – 01952 382104.

Assuming the application passes the necessary legal hurdles and is approved by the Department for Transport, Civil Parking Enforcement could go live in Telford and Wrekin around the Autumn of 2019.

Kind regards,

All the best,
