Parish Council update

Keep Baslow Beautiful

With Spring in the air, many of us are looking at our gardens and beginning a Spring tidy up.  Some important items to note:

  • Please ensure that any shrubs or trees that overhang your boundary do not block footpaths or the highway.  Hedges should be tight to the boundary wall with the road or pavement and there should be no overhang below 2.5m.
  • There are no byelaws in Derbyshire Dales prohibiting bonfires or limiting the times when a bonfire can be lit. Under the Environmental Protection Act 1990, a statutory nuisance includes “smoke, fumes or gases emitted from premises so as to be prejudicial to health or a nuisance.” In practice a fire would have to be a recurrent persistent problem, interfering substantially with neighbours’ well-being, com-fort or enjoyment of their property.If you are having a bonfire, we recommend the following to minimise the risk of causing a nuisance to your neighbours:
    – Advise your neighbours before you have a bonfire
    – Only burn dry material
    – Never burn household waste
    – Consider which direction the wind is blowing, to avoid smoking blowing into Neighbouring gardens
    – Never use oil, petrol or other accelerants to light a bonfire
  • Another regular issue in the Parish is dog poo. Please pick up your dog poo.  It can be discarded in any public waste bin.
