Major IT issue

Thank you for your patience whilst IT have been resolving the problems. The majority of our systems are now back online and IT are working hard to resolve the final few.

Nearly all problems have been resolved, although customers may still get a "delivery failure" reply if emailing a Council department.

You can still carry out most transactions on our website. If you need to contact us by phone and your call is urgent we will try to help you. If your call is not urgent please contact us in the latter half of next week as we anticipate the first half of the week to be extremely busy.

We apologise for any inconvenience while we work to resolve this problem.

Recreation and open space study (July 2013)

The Recreation and Open Space Study July 2013 investigates current quantity and quality of recreation and open space provision in the district, how this is meeting local need, and reviews the standards for open space necessary to ensure that new spaces are provided to meet the needs generated by new development.

The study is one of a number of evidence base and supporting studies produced or commissioned by the Council to inform the preparation of the new Local Plan. The evidence collected will also inform the Council, its Parish Councils and other bodies, where and how to improve facilities and will assist in both targeting and obtaining grant funding to provide new and improved open space and recreation facilities.
