Sue said: “I was approached by….”

HRH The Duke of Gloucester visits Chasewater

HRH The Duke of Gloucester visits his fifth venue of the day when he visited Staffordshire on 14 May. He is pictured with the Lord-Lieutenant arriving at Chasewater where he was enthusiastically greeted by pupils of Norton Canes Primary School.

Ten years ago on 4th November 2004 HRH The Duke of Gloucester KG GCVO officially opened the Innovation Centre. Initially the centre was planned as a base to deliver business support for the forest industry; these days it plays a greater role as a thriving conference and visitor centre for Chasewater Country Park. Much has happened in the area over the last ten years, including the discovery of the Staffordshire Hoard, the largest collection of Anglo-Saxon gold and silver metalwork ever found anywhere in the world, the discovery was made in a farmer’s field near to the village of Hammerwich on July 5th 2009.

Full council debates

If you want to start a petition for the County Council to consider then this is how you go about it.

If a petition contains more than 5,000 signatures it will be debated by the full council (unless it is a petition asking for a senior council officer to give evidence at a public meeting).  This means that the subject raised in the petition will be discussed at a meeting which all County Councillors can attend.

Sue Woodward The council will usually consider the petition at its next meeting, although on some occasions this may not be possible and consideration will then take place at the following meeting.  We will let you know about the specific arrangements for the debate and how you may be involved.  The council may decide the response to the petition at this meeting or suggest what other steps should be taken.  Where the council executive has to make the final decision on the response to the petition, the council may make recommendations to inform this decision.

The petition organiser will be notified of the council’s resolutions.

This notification will also be published on our website.
