Public Consultation on Draft Part V (Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation) of the Development Requirements Supplementary Planning Document

Stratford-on-Avon District Council is undertaking a six-week public consultation on Draft Part V (Climate Change Adaptation and Mitigation) of the Development Requirements Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).

This document is a key and significant piece of work to accompany the Core Strategy. It provides detailed advice and guidance to applicants when submitting planning applications and is designed to ensure that new development and extensions to existing property meets our emerging requirement of achieving a climate change goal of net zero emissions by 2030. When adopted, it will be used by the District Council to ensure that planning decisions reflect as far as possible our aspiration to achieve that goal.

The consultation runs from Thursday 9 January to 5pm on Friday 21 February 2020

The consultation document can be viewed on the District Council’s website at www.stratford.gov.uk/climatechangespd 

It is also available to inspect at the District Council offices – Elizabeth House, Church Street, Stratford-upon-Avon CV37 6HX and at public libraries across the District. 

The District Council is also hosting a drop-in day when Officers will be available to answer questions and provide more information. This will take place at Elizabeth House on Tuesday 4 February 2020 from 3pm to 7pm.

Smart gadgets on pharmacy bags across Warwickshire this Christmas

Pharmacies across Warwickshire have received an early Christmas delivery of brightly coloured pharmacy bags covered in smart gadgets!

The gadgets are pictures of smart technology such as automatic pill dispensers, fall detectors and reminder clocks that could provide simple solutions to make daily tasks easier for people at home.

AskSARA printed pharmacy bags

The pharmacy bags are the latest way that Warwickshire County Council is raising awareness of its easy-to-use AskSARA website (www.warwickshire.gov.uk/asksara) which helps to improve people’s access to a range of ‘self-help’ smart technology and services in Warwickshire so they can stay well for longer.

The AskSARA website has been launched in the county by Warwickshire County Council as part of their commitment, through the Warwickshire Cares Better Together programme, to give people improved access to Assistive Technology and to help them focus on their strengths.

From cooking and washing to taking medicines, or doing pastimes and day-to-day errands, AskSARA provides information, advice and guidance on smart gadgets and solutions that can enable people to help themselves.

The website signposts people to a choice of gadgets and solutions based on their own requirements and produces an individual report with suggested ideas, based on the responses to some simple, multiple-choice questions.

For instance, if a person needs help remembering to take their tablets, it might recommend an automatic pill dispenser or a digital reminder clock; or if someone needs help with remaining hydrated or has mobility problems as a consequence of a health condition, AskSARA may advise the use of a special ‘hand steady’ mug, a fall detector ‘watch’, or a personal alarm.

This could lessen their dependence on friends, family and professional carers, and help them to stay healthy in their own home. 

The County Council is hoping that pharmacists across Warwickshire, who play an important role in providing front-line health advice, will help to raise awareness of the website and the gadgets and services available.
