2021 Elections

LOOKING AHEAD TO THE 2021 ELECTIONS

Following the postponement of the 2020 Elections due to Covid-19 we would like to provide you with a brief update as we start to look ahead to Thursday May 6th 2021.

Planning is already underway and we would like to reassure you that our highest priority is the safety of our staff and our electorate. We are currently undertaking initial work with regard to all aspects of our Polling Stations.

AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET INVOLVED

In anticipation of a possible shortfall in our usual Polling Station staffing levels, coupled with the need to be able to offer short notice cover for last minute cases of self-isolation we would very much like to add new staff to our Team.

If you think you would enjoy the experience of being right at the heart of the democratic process and would like to find out more about the role and rates of pay, please get in touch direct via email: elections@stroud.gov.uk

 All applicants must be over 18, not a member of a political party, eligible to work in the UK and available for the whole day and evening of Thursday May 6th 2021.

Carbon Neutral 2030

Help Stroud District Become Carbon Neutral

Carbon Neural Commitment

To help meet the Stroud District Council Carbon Neutral Commitment by 2030, SDC has been working with Transition Stroud. Transition Stroud support community-based Climate Action Networks right across the District.  These Networks are working on local projects to reduce carbon emissions. From tree planting to transport, energy efficiency to renewables and waste reduction. 

A Carbon Neutral Mapping Team from the District’s Climate Action Networks are currently working on an  opens in a new windowonline map of existing community-based low carbon projects and would be very grateful for your help.

A short survey

Please fill in a short survey to understand people’s interest in community-based projects that help lower carbon emissions in our local area. 

They are asking as many people as possible to complete the 2 minute survey – using this website link.

Some members of the PC have already completed it. Is very quick and easy. Obviously, the higher number of responses the better able they will be to move forward. 

All responses are anonymous.  Please complete the survey by Monday 31 August.

The Draft Stroud District Climate Strategy and master plan will be published in September. Also a timetable of consultation and engagement events to allow interested groups and individuals to give their views. This will help shape the final document.

Pyke Quarry – Wednesday Openings

Open on Wednesday!

The Household Recycling Centre at Pyke Quarry will be temporarily opened on Wednesdays from 19th August to make more booking slots available.

news

To limit the number of people on-site pre-booking was introduced earlier this year at all five of the county’s Household Recycling Centres (HRCs) to enable social distancing, with measures in place to help keep visitors and staff safe.

Booking

The booking system has a limited number of timed slots available each day and visitors can book up to 21 days in advance. Bookings can be made online at  opens in a new windowwww.gloucestershirerecycles.com

Waiting times for a visit to Hempsted, Wingmoor Farm, Oak Quarry and Fosse Cross HRCs are currently less than a week, with next day availability on occasions at some sites. However, due to its popularity, the delay before a visit can be made to Pyke Quarry, Horsley is significantly longer.

To help reduce this wait, Pyke Quarry HRC will be opening on its normal Wednesday closure day from 19th August, as a temporary measure, until further notice.

Visitors to all sites are reminded that vehicles should only have drivers wherever possible. Site staff must socially distance and are unable to help with unloading so one passenger is permitted to assist. Crucially, anyone with covid-19 symptoms and those in self-isolating households MUST NOT visit.
