  • Bingham Deserves Better
    Background: "Bingham deserves better" was the response of the Chair of Rushcliffe Borough Council's Standards Committee (Sep 2020) to numerous complaints made against Councillors at Bingham Town Council over the last year. So what has been going on? What we know:  * The Town Clerk was unfairly dismissed and subsequently reinstated, but 'Staff Issues' still repeatedly appear on the Agendas. * Excessive use of 'Private & Confidential' makes it impossible to follow key issues resulting in a lack of 'Openness and Accountability'. * Staffing review commissioned two years ago, at a cost of £4550, highlighted several concerning issues within the council. Recommendations of the report have not been implemented. * Correspondence between Human Resource consultants and two Councillors has been withheld from other Councillors by 'bloc' vote from the controlling group. * Human Resource Consultant expenses of £9000 in this financial year (based on Council's own estimate). The Consultants have declined to quote for a new contract. * Town Clerk's advice as 'Proper Officer' is regularly ignored by the controlling group. * Events have resulted in the use of no less than seven 'Extraordinary’ meetings in 2020. In Summary: Considerable time and money has been spent on Staff issues to the detriment of infrastructure projects. We also believe that progress on issues highlighted in the 2016 ‘Community Led Plan’ and the ‘Brilliant Bingham’ initiative for the future of Bingham have been stifled by these distractions and regrettably neither fully embraced. This has led to ineffective performance, a weakened non-inclusive community and Council, where civic values, responsibility, and pride have been undermined, resulting in a lack of efficiency and community cohesion where standard Governance rules have been broken. What we would like:  * Dissolve the Council and take over the operation until new elections can be held. * Reset the culture and strengthen the procedures at the Council so that the above mentioned concerns cannot continue. This petition is open to everyone on the Bingham electoral roll (see map below). (Covid restrictions have resulted in this being launched as an e-petition in the knowledge that RBC have the legal powers under this legislation to proactively undertake this review if they are so minded.)

  • Fix the pothole problem in Arbroath
    The pothole problem within Angus is costing the people who live there money with unnecessary car repairs that could easily be avoided if the council fixed the problem.

  • Stop Chelmsford City Council increasing bereavement charges by 12%
    Chelmsford City Council has proposed to raise bereavement charges from April 2021 by 12%, which equates to about £100 for cremations and £200 for burials. At this immensely difficult time, the City Council must think again and look for other savings, or indeed utilise reserves. It is simply immoral to hike up these charges during a pandemic. We believe the City Council should be caring for its local residents at this difficult time. Please lend us your support in this endeavour.

  • Youth Centre for Penzance
    Locally and nationally, young people's mental health is in crisis, made worse by the ongoing coronavirus crisis. But, the provision of a safe space for young people in Penzance could be the chance to support, guide and provide opportunities to those in need. The local councils needs to listen and respond to the needs of young people by providing a youth strategy and youth centre space for the people of Penzance

  • Save Ellar Ghyll recycling centre
    The new Otley East development will bring an extra 550 houses to Otley. This makes it even more important that we have adequate infrastructure. We realise that Leeds City Council have had severe budget cuts but Otley cannot afford to lose this vital resource.

  • Open a Post Office in Wollaton
    There was a Post Office at this site until December 2019 as part of the Waitrose shop. When it was sold to Lidl a commitment was made to open a PO as part of the complex. Agreement was reached between Lidl and a newsagent but the Post Office has blocked the plan. We want this changed.

  • Government must move 'Treasury North' to Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool
    If the Government are serious about levelling up then this project must come to Teesside, Darlington and Hartlepool. Swapping one metropolitan city, like London, for another, like Leeds, is not going to lead to more investment and better policy making for towns, villages and rural areas. The centre of power needs to reflect and be based in communities that are most affected by lack of investment and locating it here will lead to more investment and better outcomes for local people.

  • Keep Our Post Office and Co-op Shop in Headington

Within the shop is the Post Office. The Post Office is a service that is relied upon by many people in the communities both in and surrounding Headington.

  • Increase Safety on The Brent zebra crossing
    The Brent is highly built up - with residential housing, shops and 2 bus stops along this one small stretch of road. Earlier this month a woman was knocked down by a car and badly injured whilst walking across the zebra crossing, which simply isn't fit for purpose! This is not a one off incident, and since then many have shared their own experiences of near misses. We the undersigned ask Kent County Council for the zebra crossing lights to be installed, replaced and properly maintained & for railings to be installed along the ends of the crossing, to stop people parking alongside and obscuring pedestrians. We also ask Dartford Borough Council for increased parking enforcement along here, to deter people from parking dangerously and stop reckless behaviour. We have formed The Newtown Road Safety Group, in order to make our ward a safer place to live, and ask that both the local authority and Kent council start working together, before we see yet more injury and tragedies on our roads.

  • #KnighthoodForNigel
    Nigel Owens has presided over 100 international Rugby Union test matches. He has been a global icon in the sport and a beacon of fair play and honesty. He embodies all that is good in Rugby Union - he has passion, he wants to share his love of the sport and he wants to ensure fans enjoy a fair game. He is one of the first openly gay “famous” people in rugby and, as such, has shown that rugby has an inclusive and accepting culture to those who may fear exposing their own sexuality in what is still perceived by many as a game for “men’s men”. For giving millions of fans around the world the enjoyment of the best-refereed matches ever known, for being a beacon of decency and fairness that all other referees still struggle to match, for providing strong discipline with a light touch and a lot of humour and for acting as a pathfinder for non-heterosexuals to feel accepted in the sport, it is only fitting that Nigel Owens be recognised as one of the most important single participants in the sport of Rugby Union globally in the past decade or so.
