DRAFT HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE PLAN FOR RUTLAND: Cllr Nebel reported on the RCC Health & Wellbeing Board public meeting on 5th Octo-ber 2021 which he attended and at which this plan was unveiled for public consultation. This is a three year health plan for Rutland 2022- 2025 and the 500 parishioners who are now patients at the Empingham Medical Centre may have an interest in commenting on the plan as they access health care in Rutland. The link is on the Parish Council website. 


Cllr Nebel noted that Rutland will be classified as a ‘Place’ within the Integrated Care System for Leicester, Leicestershire & Rutland which comes into force in April 2022. The intention is that this new structure will join up plan-ning and provision of both NHS led care and Social Care led by Rutland County Council. He reported on the updated situation with the Lincolnshire CQC and Lakeside Stamford and suggested that any residents wishing to share their current experience of the practice can do so via the CQC website or the PALS (Patient Advice and Liaison Service) pages on the Lincolnshire CCG website. Options include writing to MPs Alicia Kearns and Gareth Davies. 

As a member of the action group ‘Better Health for Stamford,’ Cllr Nebel announced that another survey is being planned to seek all local views on the broader issue of all areas of healthcare – it is intended this will be held at a Stamford Friday market stall on a future date yet to be decided. 

Correspondence received from Empingham PCG – Cllr Nebel offered to represent Ryhall Parish Council to ensure smooth transfer of information about Healthcare in Rutland back to the parish. He advised that he is now co-chair of Empingham PPG 

SCHOOL TRAVEL AMBASSADOR INITIATIVE & 20 MPH SCHEME: The Parish Council reviewed the decision to accept Rutland County Council ballpark costings for scheme implementation. It was agreed that the parish council remain supportive of the Ambassadors’ request for the 20 mph zone around the school access and within the village and are prepared to fund this. However, a consultation with the residents is required to progress this, in line with previous consultations. There is a need to demonstrate the level of resident support for funding this and to ensure that residents are fully aware of the amount of signage required to implement a 20mph zone. 

Rutland County Council to inform of the exact costs; to date the Parish Council have been provided with a ballpark sum based on last year’s figures of £3,570 plus legal fees – legal fees yet to be determined. It was agreed that this could be allocated from the budgeted monies which were ringfenced for possible works to the Library refurbishment – now not being progressed. In addition, the Parish Council could access the ringfenced CIL money £1,790 held for infrastructure projects which must be spent within a time frame of five years. It was agreed to proceed with the consultation as detailed above. Cllr Nebel offered to lead on this consultation process with a questionnaire directed to residents which would define the exact requirement of the scheme, the proposed zone and signage. Cllr Smith suggested the school users also be included although it is the responses of the resident parishioners that are required. 

THE HIGH SHERRIFF OF RUTLAND is visiting all the Rutland Villages and would like to visit Ryhall and Belmesthorpe. The Chairman will formulate an agenda for the visit. This will include a village walk, visit to the Church, looking at biodiversity and sustainability, and addressing rural poverty.

Final word from Caroline Adams 

‘This October meeting was the last meeting for me as Clerk as I am retiring. I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone I have had the pleasure of working with in the twenty-six years that I have been Clerk, I have worked with a total of thirty-eight Councillors. In particular, I would like to recognise the four Chairmen. 

Len Laybourn was at the helm in 1994, followed by Chris Parsons and Paul Huddleston and now Dave Amies. It has been a pleasure to work with just four Chairs over the decades – this is a testament to the longevity and com-mitment of the Chairmen who have served this parish. I thank them all for their huge support over the years .
