PACAC holds one-off session examining constitutional implications of Commons procedure ahead of votes on Brexit ‘Plan B’

Parliament News - 9 hours 15 min ago
The Brexit process has shone fresh spotlight on how Parliament and Government interact, inside the Commons chamber and beyond. Amendments seeking to direct the Government, such as that which compelled the Prime Minister to return to the Commons with her Brexit ‘Plan B’ on Monday 21 January, are one reason why the level of interest in parliamentary procedure has never been higher.

Further grants for local community projects in North Dorset

Dorset Council News Feed - 9 hours 25 min ago
Cllr Sherry Jespersen, North Dorset District Council’s portfolio holder for community and regeneration, said: “There are some really exciting community projects underway across North Dorset. It gives me great pleasure to support these initiatives which will all bring long and short term community and economic benefits  to our area.” Stalbridge Hub extension project

An agreed grant of £70,000 will go to Stalbridge Town Council. The project will enhance the current multi-purpose centre. This currently has a community run library, community office, meeting rooms  and Town Council office.  The extension will provide a larger multi-use room, improved catering facilities and smaller rooms. These will allow for outreach medical consultations and other support work.

This extension will also enable a current space in the existing building to create a heritage centre space. This would be for exhibition and museum archive purposes. Estimated costs of the project stand at £300,000-£350,000. A grant of £70,000 from the District Council would be a significant contribution. This grant would also help the Town Council to secure other funding. Cllr Graham Carr-Jones, leader of North Dorset District Council, said: “This extension will make sure the Stalbridge Hub can really expand the services and support the Hub provides for the people in Stalbridge and the surrounding villages. I am very pleased that the District Council has supported this project.” Gillingham Town Gateway project An agreed grant of £70,000 will go to Gillingham Town Council. Gillingham is the largest town in North Dorset and growing. It is home to many businesses, and has a vibrant community. The money will contribute to improvements at the gateways into the town and help attract future investment. The project comprises improvements to a total of 7 locations. This includes one project at the station, which is also an important Gateway. Estimated total project costs are £97,000. Blandford Market Place enhancement An agreed grant of £70,000 will go to Blandford Forum Town Council. The Town Council are developing the weekly markets, to bring more people into the town centre. The area used by the market provides a space for the twice weekly markets as well as being an important venue for open air events. It also provides a valuable frontspace to the historic Corn Exchange and adjoining Georgian facades.  This project would improve this area. Anticipated total cost of the project is likely to be between £220,000 and £340,000. The grant of £70,000 from the District Council would be a significant contribution. It will also act as match funding for other grants. Redundant supermarket Feasibility Study in Shaftesbury An agreed grant of £70,000 will go to Shaftesbury Town Council. The Town Council has placed a bid to buy a redundant supermarket in the town.  The aim is to develop this space with a mix of retail, commercial offices, start-up offices, commercial leisure and affordable flats. This would be in partnership with a local community enterprise organisation. This is an ambitious project backed up by sound business planning. Financial support will contribute towards the redevelopment costs. If Shaftesbury Town Council is not the favoured bidder then a grant of £50,000 will be allocated to a tourism signage improvement project in the town.

Appeal for dashcam footage after fatal collision on M1

Officers investigating a fatal collision on the M1 motorway yesterday morning (Monday 21 January) are appealing for motorists who were travelling along the northbound carriageway at junction 23 to get in touch.

The collision occurred just before 9.30am and involved a pedestrian and HGV. The pedestrian, a man, sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Following the initial collision a second HGV collided with the HGV involved in the fatal collision. No one else was injured.

The northbound carriageway of the M1 motorway was closed until the early afternoon to allow emergency services to deal with the incident.

Detective Constable Pete Davies from the serious collision investigation unit, said: “We’d like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or saw either the pedestrian or HGV beforehand. If you have a dashcam camera fitted in your vehicle can you check the footage and contact us if you have anything that may help us?

“The M1 motorway was understandably busy at the time of the collision and a number of vehicles were caught up in the tailbacks.

“We’d like to thank those who were delayed for their patience while we dealt with the incident.”

Anyone with any information is asked to contact DC 1761 Pete Davies on 101, quoting incident number 148 of 21 January.
