Parish Boundary Review

A Review of Sapcote Parish Boundary

At the request of Sapcote Parish Council, the location of the parish boundary between Sapcote and Stoney Stanton is being reviewed by Blaby District Council. At present. the parish boundary between the settlements runs through the middle of the Jelson development and this has resulted in part of Stoney Stanton's built environment being attached to Sapcote.

The Blaby District Local Plan 1999 confirmed the establishment of an Area of Separation between Sapcote and Stoney Stanton to ensure that the character and identity of the two settlements was maintained. In line with this policy, Blaby District Council refused planning permission for the Jelson development but this decision was overturned by a planning inspector on appeal. This decision has now resulted in a situation where the two villages are merged. More »

In order to redress this situation, Sapcote Parish Council has asked for a review so that the boundaries can be redrawn and a meaningful Area of Separation reinstated which would ensure the separation of the two villages and the protection of their individual identities. Hopefully, we can work with Stoney Stanton Parish Council to bring this about as the protection of the individual identities of our villages through a boundary change would be to the benefit of both communities.

In considering this matter, the Parish Council has taken into account the fact that the whole of the Jelson site now falls within the catchment area of All Saints primary school following a redrawing of school catchment areas by Leicestershire County Council. Clearly the County Council has recognised that the present situation is unsustainable and has taken action to address it.

Another factor was that all of the traffic from this site spills out into Sapcote not Stoney Stanton.

There is also confusion with addresses; there have been a number of emergency incidents in which the emergency services have been unable to find addresses or locations because of confusion over our parish boundary. A change in the boundary will help address this problem.

It is the view of Sapcote Parish Council that the whole of this site should now be incorporated into the parish of Sapcote and accordingly, the Parish Council is now preparing its formal response to this review.

Blaby District Council has said it will welcome representations from any person or body wishing to comment on the boundary arrangement and such representations should be sent to:

Community Governance Review, Corporate Services, Blaby District Council, Desford Road, Narborough LE19 2EP or by email to legalservicemailbox@blaby.gov.uk by 5 January 2018

Changes at Stoney Stanton Surgery

Improvements planned for patients at The Old School Surgery

The following statement has been provided by Stoney Stanton surgery to keep patients informed of impending changes.

For patients who are registered at The Old School Surgery in Stoney Stanton you will know that we provide services from our main building on Hinckley Road as well as a building that we refer to as Greencroft Annexe which is located on Carey Hill Road. More »

The team at The Old School Surgery has been reviewing the annexe building and whilst it has served our patients and staff well for a number of years we feel that we need to make some improvements so that we can enhance the quality of care we provide to our patients.

Unfortunately the annexe building is no longer fit for purpose. Access is very difficult via a path which is steep and can be slippery and unsafe for our vulnerable patients and pregnant ladies. It is also very isolated and has limited public lighting. The building itself is suffering from damp and is in need of major repairs.

The services that have been run from Greencroft Annexe include physiotherapy, counselling, health visitors, midwives and phlembotomy and INRs (a measurement of blood coagulation).

From the 1 February 2018 patients will see some changes and improvements to the environment in which they receive their care.

The phlembotomy /INR service will be run from our main surgery on Hinckley Road. Our Midwifery service will also be based in the main surgery enabling us to increase the number of appointments we provide. It will also mean that the easy access to our doctors will be really beneficial to our mums.

The Physiotherapist Service provided by Leicestershire Partnership Trust who are looking to streamline their services, but are committed to still providing this service in Hinckley.

The Health Visiting Service will also still be provided locally using the Living Rock Church as well as making home visits.

The counselling service call 'Lets' Talk Wellbeing' are centralising their service, but referrals from our GPs, if appropriate, will still be made and self-referrals are also possible by calling 0115 876 0157 or visiting https://www.nottinghamshirehealthcare.nhs.uk/leicestershire-county-and-rutland-service-

The team at The Old School Surgery is really excited about these improvements. We will be making the best use of our available space and providing services in a much improved setting which is safe, has much better parking facilities and has a doctor on site at all times.

Your feedback on the improvements

It is important to the team at The Old School Surgery to understand the impact of these changes and improvements on our patients. If you want to share your insight with us please visit our website and complete our short online form [insert web address]. » Less
