  Scam phone calls

These calls are taking place all the time. There have been recent scam phone calls received in the parish. The calls take the form of a recorded message alledgedly from a card provider such as VISA saying that there are concerns over a particular transaction. You may be asked to press a button on your phone if the card use was not yours. The advice is not to respond to anything in the phone call but to hang up and to call your own bank or card provider.

  Tewkesbury Borough Council - Ashchurch Concept Master Plan

There was a public meeting on the 10th December 2018 organised by Ashchurch Rural Parish Council to provide information to the parish residents and to get feedback on views in order for ARPC to make an informed response to TBC regarding the plan. Annette Roberts, Head of Development Services, TBC, was in attendance. The full report on this Question & Answer session can be viewed here. Clearly the responses have been ignored and so far as it is possible to tell none of them have been published by either TBC or the JCS team. Despite the obvious flaws with siting such a development at this location an announcement has been made that this plan has now been approved by the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government.

For continuing information on this topic see the Planning page.
