Langwith views wanted

Residents in Langwith, Whaley Thorns, Upper Langwith and Langwith Junction are being given the opportunity to make comments on proposals to create a new parish council for their villages.

A petition – signed by over 300 residents – was received by Bolsover District Council to undertake a Community Governance Review into whether or not to establish a new council.

The villages are currently served by Scarcliffe Parish Council and after reviewing the request the district authority is proposing to create a new Parish of Langwith with three wards electing four councillors per ward, and to change the warding arrangements for Scarcliffe Parish with two wards electing four councillors per ward.

l Residents have until 30th April to comment at www.askderbyshire.gov.uk/bolsover/ComGovRevScarcliffe2
