The Chair has received a response from the Peninsula Practice to our letter expressing concerns raised by members about medical provision in Aldeburgh principally caused by the current crisis and the need for infection control. Things seem to be improving and appointments have resumed at the Aldeburgh surgery, Our letter, Dr Crockett’s video and the Practice's response are below along with the recent proposals to do more in Aldeburgh surgery.
Aldeburgh Society News-
The Aldeburgh Society Committee continues to hold meetings (virtually) and continues to monitor and comment on planning applications.
We are hoping to hold the AGM at some point but there is no regulatory problem with this being delayed. The annual accounts have been approved by the Committee and are now on our website.
We continue to update our members about Aldeburgh Services and information and to direct queries to the Town Council which is working hard to coordinate the response to Covid-19.
We corresponded with the Peninsula Practice about medical provision in Aldeburgh. We certainly think things are improving and will continue to improve as the Covid-19 restrictions are gradually removed. The correspondence and Dr Crockett’s video are on the website.
We await the decision of the Planning Inspectorate as to if and when it plans to hold virtual hearings into the Scottish Power EA1N and EA2 windfarm projects planning applications. We opposed the idea to move to virtual hearings as unworkable and inappropriate and responded accordingly.
EDF Sizewell CEDF has gone ahead (despite our objection and that of many others that a delay was needed because of the Covid-19 restrictions) and submitted its application for a development consent order (DCO). We will be formulating the Aldeburgh Society’s detailed response over the next month.
We are always looking for new members and people interested in joining our committee so please get in touch if you are interested.
We will come out of this. We are investigating how we can hold our talks later in the year with social distancing in place. This may involve "virtual lectures". We will be in touch about our plans.
