Chapel and Hill Chorlton Parish Council

Nominate your Favourite Building

You may be aware that the Borough Council has a Register of Locally Important Buildings and Structures and reviews the list every 2 years.
The Council would like to now invite nominations for consideration of this year’s review.  Please visit
www.newcastle-staffs.gov.uk/localregister<http://www.newcastle-staffs.gov.uk/localregister> for more information on the list, how to nominate and the buildings and structures that are already on the list and the criteria.   The deadline for nominations this year will be 7th September
2020.

You will need to apply for a building to be considered online and the form can be found on the local register page – see above link.   If
you have one, please give as much information as possible so your nomination can be properly considered against the criteria.  Buildings
should be historic,  authentic, have some architectural merit and have value to the local community.

The Borough hope to review the nominations early October with a view to Planning Committee considering the revised list for publication by the
end of the year.

Post Office Help Scheme

A new initiative introduced by the Post Office is being rolled out to banks.  Anyone who cannot leave home may be able to ask a trusted friend or volunteer to withdraw cash at any Post Office using a single-use voucher. The Post Office scheme is being extended and offered to all banks, building societies and credit unions. If the bank allows it, someone can ask for a one-time barcode sent via text, email or post for a stipulated amount. A trusted friend or volunteer can exchange the voucher for the cash requested. Previously, only a named individual, such as a carer, could collect cash in this way on someone’s behalf. Now any trusted neighbour or volunteer can do so.

The idea of the Payout Now scheme is to allow people who are shielded or self-isolating, mainly elderly, to maintain access to cash without having to hand over a debit card and Pin to somebody else.
