Javelin Park Incinerator

Monday, August 19th, 2013 by barker77

Here is a copy and paste from a recent email from Glosvain if you are interested in fighting against the incinerator in Javelin Park.

The fight against the Javelin Park Incinerator goes on

A 5-week long Public Inquiry into the Javelin Park Incinerator application has been agreed and will start on 19th November. An Inspector has been appointed to hear the case.   We now urgently need your support again.  You can be part of the Inquiry and help make sure that this application is thrown out for good by taking the following actions:


Please write again saying why you object to this Incinerator by 3rd Sept’ to: Helen Skinner, Case Officer (Quoting ref.: APP/T1600/A/13/2200210)
Email:  Helen.skinner@pins.gsi.gov.uk   OR
Send To: The Planning Inspectorate, Room 3/02, Kite Wing, Temple Quay House, 2 The Square, Temple Quay, Bristol, BS1 6PN

Your original planning objection will be forwarded to the Inspector, but this is your chance to add more views about why this incinerator should be stopped.

Please copy us in on your written representation/submission by emailing pr@glosvain.inf. You can also contact us by email if you would like help with your submission.


There will be a special Public Session when members of the public can speak at the Inquiry.  We hope that as many of you as possible will chose to do this.  Please write to Helen Skinner (contact info above) to register your interest, and please let us know too at pr@glosvain.info.

While there is no deadline for this, it would be helpful if you can do it as soon as possible.

If you are unable to attend in the day time, NOTIFY THE CASE OFFICER THAT YOU WOULD LIKE AN EVENING INQUIRY, if sufficient residents request this, one (or more) is usually arranged.


Can you help deliver or hand out leaflets in your area? Do you have any ideas on how to raise public awareness about the incinerator and the Public Inquiry?

If yes, do please email: Diana.Shirley@virgin.net  (or tel': 01452 810979)

4. Finally: MONEY, MONEY, MONEY!

Glosvain needs to raise at least £25,000.00 to cover Inquiry costs for their Advocate and witness etc. The good news is that we have already received over £7,000 in the last couple of weeks so we’re over a quarter of the way there!  Please help the campaign and make a donation:

  • By Paypal via the Glosvain websitewww.glosvain.info OR
  • By Bank Transfer to Gloucestershire Vale Against Incineration: A/C:41283111, Sort Code:40-43-42, OR
  • By Cheque made payable to “Gloucestershire Vale Against Incineration”. Please send to: FAO Graham Smith, Quedgeley Parish Council, 9C The Old School House, School Lane, Quedgeley, Gloucester GL2 4PJ.

Many, many thanks to all the supporters who have already sent donations.

Road and Pavement Surfacing

Monday, July 9th, 2012 by barker77


Here is a bit of an update with regards to Road and pavement surfacing from QUVL:

  • Tuesday 10 July – Carriageway Surfacing between Brize Avenue and Ruscoe Way
  • Wednesday 11 July  – Footway surfacing
  • Thursday and Friday – Carriageway surfacing between School and Brize Avneue, along with Ruscoe Way.

QUVL have requested that cars are not parked in the road on these days.

There is one vehicle – Blue BMW reg N316 MHR which is proving difficult to locate the owner. Should it remain in the way, we will have to ask The Police if they can help.

Thanks for your co-operation.

BT Infinity in Kingsway

BT Infinity

Hi All,

Sorry for the slight duplication to the Virgin/Infinity thread, but I wanted to seperate this one out.

Having spoken to BT it seems that some cabinets within Kingsway were deemed not to be financially viable to upgrade to Infinity. This appears to be due to the fact that hardly any houses were connected to them at the time. This of course has changed now, with a large proportion of the estate now built. To try and get BT to move and upgrade these we need people to register to prove that interest is high.

There is no commitment to buy, just that you might be interested.

If you are interested then please visit this link and input your details, (forwards to BT Openreach site).

As a Residents Association, we are hoping to push BT into investigating upgrading these cabinets ASAP.

Have your say : Recycling in Gloucester

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012 by barker77

Taken from the Gloucester Council Website:

“We are currently asking residents and businesses in Gloucester about what they think about the waste and recycling service they receive. This includes your fortnightly black bin collection, your weekly recycling collection as well as other “away from home” recycling services. This is something that affects us all, so have your say and influence a key service for the City.”

Local Bands Needed

Sunday, April 29th, 2012 by barker77

Queens Jubilee Event 3rd June

Hi All,

The Residents Association is holding a Queens Jubilee Celebration on the 3rd June in the park land near Manor Farm.

Music is going to be central to this year’s event and as such we would like to include as many local bands as possible.

Unfortunately we are unable to pay any bands who play, however we will supply lunch and it’s some great exposure.

This is being made possible by Gloucester College so a big thanks to them.

If you are interested in playing then please contact paul@kingsway-villagers.co.uk

More information regarding the event, times etc will be posted shortly.

Also if you are interested in volunteering to help out on the day, we require people to help set up the area and also clear up afterwards. Please email the above address should you wish to help.

Any help is appreciated!
