Ball Hill Planning Application

The Parish Council are very pleased to announce that the planning application for an industrial development on the land east of the M1 Motorway and north of Ball Hill has been withdrawn.

The Parish Council were the first to object to the planning application in the strongest terms back in February 2018.

The Parish Council strongly objected on the grounds that: -

This would be building industrial units in what is a longstanding residential area. It raises issues of access with a large volume of traffic, especially HGV's entering the site then exiting on to Ball Hill, close to the brow of the hill. More »

The application is for two sheds each containing five units so this would incur increased noise, possibly during unsociable hours.

There are many disused mine shafts in the area which are not considered in the application and this may well prove a problem.

The application states that there is no amenity value but this is actually incorrect.

Bolsover District Council informed us on 13th December that: -

Please note that application 17/00657/FUL re-employment development at Ball Hill South Normanton has now been withdrawn by the applicant.

As always, the Parish Council acts with the best interests of the residents of the parish. » Less

South Normanton Parish Council Christmas Lights Switch On 2018

South Normanton Parish Council Christmas Lights Switch On 2018

For the very first time in South Normanton, the Parish Council decided to provide a Christmas Tree and hold a special event to switch the lights on which took place on Sunday 2nd December at 5pm in the Market Place adjacent to the Cyber Café. Considering the fact that it was raining the event was very well attended and drew a crowd of approximately 200 people of all ages.

Councillor and Alderman Ray Brooks did the light switch on honours which was followed by a firework display which brought a chorus of "Oo's and Aah's" from all the crowd. Hot soup was supplied by the Parish Council free of charge from under the market's fruit and vegetable stall provided by Sean McLaughlin. More »

There was a special visit from Mickey and Minnie Mouse to the absolute delight of all the children. There was also an opportunity for children and parents to have photographs taken with the popular Disney characters. The local Churches Together group sang Christmas Carols which helped create a lovely festive atmosphere.

Afterwards, Mickey and Minnie Mouse were escorted in a sleigh to the Post Mill Centre. The centre which had been decked out with its own Christmas lights, with this year's decorations being based on a "Strictly Christmas" theme. The Post Mill Centre also provide mulled wine and mince pies for adults and cookies, treats and soft drinks for the children, provided by the Parish Council. Many people stayed on afterwards to spend time with their family, friends and neighbours.

The Christmas lights have been extended to cover more streets this year than previously and really brighten up the village. As this event has proved so popular and successful the intention is to repeat it in future years. » Less
