Parish Precept

posted 18 Feb 2017, 04:57 by Thurgoland Parish Council

The Parish Council resolved to set  a Parish Precept for the next financial year at 2% higher than the current year. The increase is to cover additional costs of insurance, the salary costs of the clerk, and a small increase in the cost of printing the community newsletter. It will also enable a contribution to be made towards the cost of road safety measures to slow traffic down in the centre of Thurgoland, if an acceptable scheme can be agreed with Barnsley MBC.
The impact of the 2% increased precept for the Parish will be that Council Tax for a Band D property will increase by 29 pence for the whole year 2017-18.

Super Fast South Yorkshire

posted 10 Feb 2017, 02:01 by Thurgoland Parish Council   [ updated 10 Feb 2017, 02:02 ]

In September 2014, South Yorkshire joined forces with BT in a multi-million pound deal to extend the availability of high-speed, fibre broadband to around 98 per cent of homes and businesses.

So many aspects of peoples’ modern home and working lives are dependent on a fast and reliable internet connection.

From home working to internet banking, watching TV online to social media usage, keeping in touch with friends and relatives, home shopping and gaming, having a good connection is vital.

Following some technical difficulties with the previous organisation hosting our website it has been decided to use the skill and knowledge of our new volunteer webmaster Dean Hughes. And the outcome is a new look website with a much lower annual maintenance cost.

You are currently looking at the basic version, and over the next few weeks and months many of the favourite elements of the old site will return. So we hope our many community groups will take stock and update their pages as they are uploaded back onto the site. Please contact our webmaster Dean if you need some assistance with this.
Please let us know what you think!

Did you know that Crane Moor is within the Licence area granted to INEOS to explore for Shale gas to be extracted by hydraulic fracturing ('Fracking')? See below for some information provided to the Parish Council by INEOS and also for an information leaflet from 'Frack Free South Yorkshire'. There is no more specific information from INEOS at the moment but watch this space and we will update as soon as we know anything more.
