The petition from St Mary’s PCC for the wreath holders has been presented to the Chancellor of the Diocese. The Chancellor is seeking confirmation from the PCC that the Historic England has been fully consulted about the final design. This means that the procedure will be delayed whilst this is established.

August 2016 marks the 90th Anniverssary of the founding of Stevensons Buses. The very first service operated on Saturday 11 September 1926 between Uttoxeter and Burton on Trent.

Diesel Power Station proposed for Tutbury Road
East Staffordshire Borough Council is currently in receipt of a planning application to construct a diesel power station at New Farm, Tutbury Road. The station would comprise twenty five 400KW generators, giving a total capacity of 10 Megawatts.

The power station would operate on Short Term Operating Reserve to provide power to the National Grid. At times of peak demand, the station could be running until 10:00PM.
According to the noise assessment study (6.1), the candidate generators would each produce a sound pressure of 94dB lower weighted average. This would equate to a sound intensity of between 55 and 60 d B A at 30 metres as heard by the human ear.  

The proposed development is actually across the parish border in Rolleston Parish, however this may be of interest to Tutbury residents. Further details can be found at  www.tutbury.org/planning. Tutbury Parish Council will be holding a meeting on Mon 3 October 16 at The Charity House to discuss this application. See Agenda
Best Kept Village 2016 Feedback  
Tutbury came third in the Large Village category of the Community Council Trophy. Judges said that Tutbury was generally a clean and tidy village with character and history. According to the judges there was an impressive absence of litter and dog mess. It was thought that there should be more publicity in the form of posters at the entrances to the village and around the village itself. The duke street telephone box came in for particular criticism , it was full of cobwebs when the judges visited - perhaps this is consequence of mobile telephony.  Read more at www.tutbury.org/bkv
