Stoke Mandeville Hospital is to get a new children's emergency department using 15 million pounds of government funding.
This is in addition to Stoke Mandeville’s share of 300 million that’s being given to NHS trusts across the country to upgrade facilities.
There’s also to be a pilot of a new way of accessing urgent care, using the NHS 111 number and building on the way it worked during the pandemic to direct patients to the most appropriate service.
A man from Uxbridge has been fined 3 thousand pounds for flytipping a builder’s bag of his own household waste in Chalfont St Peter in October last year.
He pleaded guilty after being caught on CCTV.
A council meeting’s heard that more than 40 fly-tippers were caught during lockdown, only five of them were from Bucks and around 60 per cent of what’s dumped was commercial waste.
Meanwhile, Civil Enforcement Officers could soon have powers to issue tickets for littering and several other offences as well as parking, if a planned council revamp of their role happens.
Logistics chief David Martin suggested to the meeting that was discussing fly-tipping, that the county’s wardens will be doing “rather more” in the future.
A report which triggered the discussion yesterday asked for more visible enforcement.
A man from Amersham has been arrested after an incident in Slough earlier this month, where a man was reportedly forced out of his car, which was then stopped from driving away by members of the public who blocked the road.
The arrested man has been released under investigation.
