Parish Council / Creech Neighbourhood Plan

Following CSM submission to SWTC for further consultation and then Independent Examination  the CSM Neighbourhood Plan has finally reached the Referendum stage.  

The delay was as a result of a decision by the European Court which impacted on all NH Plans under development; this necessitated a UK Govt decision and redoing of the environmental assessment aspects of all NH Plans under development.

The CSM Neighbourhood Plan referendum will take place on 10th Oct. Please do vote.

The Parish Councils contractors will arrive on site w/b 2nd Sept and be on site for 2/3 months.

The contractors will be erecting site safety fencing around much of the park - leaving where ever and when ever possible the play equipment, MUGA and pavilion accessible to the public to use. The field area will be blocked off however as will the small carpark.

The work will provide a second MUGA (with lighting for both), a running track with gym equipment around the perimeter of the Park, several pieces of additional play equipment (incl two centrepiece items) and more safety surfacing.

Self-harming Adrian Birch 2018-12-06 13:57:32

The Director of Public Health, has used her annual report to highlight rising levels of self-harm in Somerset. Hospital admissions for self-harming show increasing numbers, particularly for girls and young women aged 10-24, with a peak around the age of 15. These are mostly one-off rather than repeat admissions but Somerset levels are higher than both the regional and national averages. The survey carried out this spring, found 28 per cent of girls and 19 per cent of boys reporting that they sometimes hurt themselves in some way when they felt stressed or worried. The report highlights the need for open and honest conversations with young people and promotion of more positive responses to stressful situations. Lots of useful information, for children, parents and carers is available on the Somerset Children & Young People Health & Wellbeing website https://www.cypsomersethealth.org/sh or by visiting www.kooth.com
