The Edgmond Defibrillator

Edgmond Automated External Defibrillator (AED) is situated in a cabinet on an external wall of the Village Hall.

It is for use by anyone. The machine will tell you what to do – you cannot hurt anyone.

If you think you need it in an emergency just follow the following steps:

First call 999 and if you can, continue basic first aid on the patient.

Send someone with a mobile phone to the village hall. When at the AED cabinet, ring 999, ask for the ambulance service and quote the number on the AED cabinet. The ambulance control will give you the code to open the cabinet if they consider use of the AED is suitable.

Take the AED to the patient and just follow the instructions.

TO DO SOMETHING IS BETTER THAN NOTHING.

YOU CANNOT MAKE THE PATIENT'S CONDITION WORSE – YOU MAY SAVE THEIR LIFE.

POLICE

Information on how to contact our local 'Safer Neighbourhood Team' and how to register with the Community Messaging Service is on the Parish Council page under the heading 'Working with the Council'.

If you have concerns or suspicions about anything relating to law enforcement please use the non-emergency number 101 immediately.

Do not worry about wasting police time - the police tell us that lots of small bits of local intelligence can help then build a bigger picture of illegal activity.   

HELICOPTER ACTIVITY

Edgmond falls within Low Flying Area (LFA) 9. You will routinely see and hear helicopters from RAF Shawbury undertaking exercises across our parish throughout the week. If you would like more information about this click here 

A member of the Parish Council sits on the Helicopter Liaison Group. We are told that you can inform the RAF if there is a funeral in the village and that the helicopters will avoid the area for the duration. Please contact the RAF directly.

Nightime flying takes place once in a while - a weekly diary is posted on the RAF Shawbury website.

For information regarding low flying activity call 01939 251510 (Daytime) or 01939 250351 Extn 7227 (Night Time).

Welcome from the Parish Council Chairman

I have to admit that I was not surprised when we received notification that both the Egremont Meadow Planning Application (for 22 homes) and the Shrewsbury Road Application (for 85 homes) had been subject to an appeal.

This is not unusual for such developers and Telford & Wrekin Council would have been aware of this when they REFUSED both applications.

Please be assured that your Parish Council will fight these applications with strength and vigour and we fully support Telford & Wrekin Council’s decision to refuse the proposals.

I am unsure if you understand the difference between a Hearing and an Inquiry (apologies if you do) but I thought I would explain. An Appeal Hearing will be a two-way discussion (it does not contain any cross examination) and it has no legal Advocate. We have successfully had the Shrewsbury Road Appeal Hearing postponed until September and Edgmond Parish Council has already registered to appear at the Hearing and has requested to speak in favour of the refusal in support of the Telford & Wrekin Council decision.

The Egremont Meadow application, however, is an Inquiry and the Inspector has requested that any further comments, modifications or updates be submitted by 12th July for his consideration. The Inspector will have already read and understood all the reasons why the Planning Authority refused this application. This will have included all your numerous representations and comments, therefore there is no requirement for you to repeat them. However, if you have NEW evidence or information that you wish to bring to his attention, then please do take up the offer and send it to the contact details included on the notification; please be sure to include the reference number TWC/2015/0454.

The Parish Council will formulate its response, which will remind the Inspector of the strength of feeling within the community against any large scale developments in the village. We will, of course, raise awareness of the Conservation Area and the proximity to Listed Buildings.

We will also be informing him of our Neighbourhood Plan, which is now at an advanced stage and will be subject to a referendum in the Autumn. This document is evidence of the views of the community and whilst it clearly opposes large scale housing estates, such as these, it does show that we are aware of our responsibilities and that we do support appropriate additional housing, on suitable infill sites within the boundary of our village. We fully appreciate the need for Edgmond to grow, but we also know that there is no identified need for large numbers of houses on new estates within this picturesque and beautiful rural settlement.

Kind regards

Robert Higginson
