NorthWarwickshire & Hinckley College is a large Further Education college in the heart of the Midlands. The college has five campuses in the two local authority areas of Warwickshire and Leicestershire. The largest campus is in Nuneaton serving a wide range of technical and service area programmes. The Hinckley campus specialises in Creative Arts, Media, Fashion & Computing.
2.14 NorthWarwickshire and Nuneaton and Bedworth sit to the north of Warwickshire County. Rugby sits to the south of Nuneaton and Bedworth whilst Tamworth and Lichfield are in the north. To the east of the county is Leicestershire and to the west, Birmingham. Rugby is currently developing their Allocations Development Plan as a next step from their ‘call for sites’ exercise as a means to meet the need for an additional 62 pitches between 2007 and 2016. Stratford-Upon-Avon (also to the south of the region) produced a guidance note in June 2012 to provide advice on the provision and design of sites in order to plan to meet the need for 44 additional pitches between 2008 and 2013. This guidance note will be replaced by a formal Core Strategy in due course. Warwick District Council, are currently running their site options consultation, which will work in line with their Local Plan process. The recently updated GTAA for the area demonstrated a need for a total of 31 permanent pitches over a 15 year period, 25 of which are required within the first five years of the Local Plan and a 12 pitch transit site to be delivered over the Plan period. The most recent published GTAA for Birmingham (2008) identified a need for an additional 19 pitches. The 2012 GTAA for Leicestershire, Leicester and Rutland in East Midlands identified a need for an additional 113 pitches between 2012 and 2017. Defining Gypsies and Travellers
1. There is evidence that the Council is putting in place the right building blocks to secure future improvement. These include numerous partnership initiatives (eg LSP and Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership), capacity-building measures, scrutiny arrangements, IT investment (eg the Warwickshire On-Line Partnership), community engagement (eg with parish councils and the Community Development Network Forum), staff training programmes that are linked to annual appraisals and corporate needs, a performance management framework, a Procurement Strategy , an Asset Management Plan and the development of risk management by deploying a Task and Finish Group.
Current housing strategy: All authorities except South Staffordshire and Rugby said specific reference is made to Gypsies and Travellers. In NorthWarwickshire the reference is to the need to gather more information about Gypsies and Travellers. The latest Housing Strategies of Cannock Chase, Lichfield and Tamworth all refer to the sub-regional Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation Assessment, stressing both the need for better information and increased collaborative working. Lichfield’s action point further refers to ensuring that the LDF reflects the future housing needs of the District’s Gypsies and Travellers. The Nuneaton & Bedworth Housing Strategy 2006– 2008 (May 2006) has the fullest reference and reads:
12% of survey respondents reported themselves as being current smokers. Of those who were smoking, a third were planning to stop, a fifth were concerned smokers, and 16% were in the process of stopping. However, just under a third stated that they were contented smokers. The highest smoking rates were amongst respondents from NorthWarwickshire and Nuneaton & Bedworth Boroughs. A higher proportion of females than males reported having never smoked, although males are more likely to be ex-smokers. For ex-smokers, nearly half gave up smoking at the first attempt. However, 29% took three or more times to give up. For current smokers, 87% had previously tried to give up smoking at least once, with 31% having tried on three or more occasions.
Four of the five licensing authorities were able to provide information on the number of new Premises Licences granted in 2009/10 (the data is not available for Stratford District). This follows a similar pattern to 2008/09, albeit in smaller numbers (the economic downturn may have had an impact on the number of applications made in 2009/10). The total number of applications for new Premises Licenses made in the NorthWarwickshire, Nuneaton and Bedworth, Rugby and Warwick in 2009/10 was 53. Of these, 51 were granted. The breakdown for these four areas is shown in the table below.
6. There are 2 socially rented sites in the Study Area (NorthWarwickshire and Nuneaton & Bedworth) together providing 38 pitches. These sites accommodate 103 individuals. All residents have access to amenity blocks, WC and a water supply. Having taken over management of the site in Nuneaton & Bedworth, Warwickshire County Council now manages both sites. Very few of the residents had positive views about these sites, with site facilities and design viewed
and Reserve Forces Compensation Scheme (AFCS) came into force on 6 April 2005 to pay compensation for injury, illness or death caused by Service on or after that date.
Individuals from Coventry and Warwickshire were identified using the ‘postcode’ field on the WPS and AFCS data. Please note that the contact addresses on the WPS and AFCS data are not fully populated and therefore the figures provided represent the minimum numbers in receipt of pensions or compensation in Coventry and Warwickshire. Also, the figures provided have been based on the contact address recorded by SPVA at the time a claim is made. Once a case is closed, the contact address is not always updated.

A possible hypothesis based on these observations is that there is an additional factor in ﬂ uencing the mor- bidity and mortality of heart failure not looked at in this study, namely the urban/rural nature of a patient ’ s living environment. It could be the case that living in an urban environment contributed risk and living in a rural area provided protection against heart failure morbidity and mortality. This would be an effect in addition to any increase in air pollution or social deprivation within urban settings compared to rural settings. This could certainly be plausible in principle, with people in rural areas perhaps doing more physical activity, eating more healthily, etc. If this were the case it would explain the excess deaths in urban centres found in this study. It could also be responsible for the unexpected protect- ive factor attributed to Pm air pollution in our analysis. Given that the Pm component of air pollution is relatively higher than the other components in rural areas, the protection that living in rural areas affords individuals could be misleadingly attributed (in our statistical ana- lysis) to the particulate matter component of air pollu- tion present in those areas. Further work will need to be carried out looking into this possible link between urban/rural living environments and heart failure mor- bidity and mortality. It could be very revealing to care- fully characterise this effect if it indeed exists, as it may be an indication of unrecognised cardiovascular risk/ protective factors associated with urban/rural living that exist within Warwickshire.
This might be developed in phases, but will require tunnelling and take time to build. It should allow for speeds of 125mph and our target of a 30 minute journey time between Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield city centres. The key to success is to ensure that the route is well connected to both the east and west and designed to dovetail with HS2, enhancing its benefits. On the eastern side it should link into the north-south HS2 line with a delta junction arrangement to allow fast services from northern centres such as Newcastle, York and Hull as well as centres in the Midlands and the south, such as Nottingham, to access the route. To the west, the line should serve Manchester Airport directly, and Liverpool/Chester as well as Manchester city centre. But we also need to see connections with the existing rail network for long distance railfreight. We will need to examine the case for purpose-designed terminals so that the corridor can offer a drive-on facility for road freight too, in the style of Eurotunnel. This could offer an all-weather trans Pennine freight capability, and in the longer term help transform the freight functionality of the North. We would anticipate cost levels of £5bn+ and a target delivery date of 2030. While this is a major investment, it should be realised that investments of this scale are now routinely contemplated for London and the south. The alternative of route improvements will not be capable of delivering the transformational change this proposition calls for, benefitting all parts of the North’s geography in a balanced way.
493. The Commissioner finds as a fact that there has been no highly significant, mostly unforeseen, intervening level of weather-related catastrophes – inclusive of hurricanes, tropical storms, tornadoes, etc. – in North Carolina in the short period of timesince the 2013 settlement of the 2012 homeowners insurance filing by the Rate Bureau. In fact, expert witnesses testified on several occasions as to how calm or uneventful the hurricane seasons have been in North Carolina in recent years, especially the most recent year. Without data to suggest a magnified level of claims and claims payouts by the companies within the last year or so – not to mention any data that indicates a threat to company solvency or reasonable profitability within the last year or so -- it is very difficult to see how any homeowners insurance increase statewide is warranted for this year or the very near-term. It is concerning to the Commissioner that the Rate Bureau entered into a voluntary settlement in 2013 for 7% and then filed again in 2014, this time for an increase of 25.6% overall statewide average without any intervening events to warrant it.

us to shoot scenes on the shoulder and with Canon Prime lenses two things that added to the “look” of the film. Another benefit to shooting on the GH2 was my post-production workflow was very simple. The same year that we shot North Star there were several other films at RIT shot on either the Arri Alexa or on a Red Camera. While working with these cameras may have some real world experience value, when it comes to your post- production they become a headache. Especially at RIT where that type of work was not planned for. I saw a lot of headache and wasted time with the people that chose to work with those cameras given the huge amount of data that they use. Never mind the fact that they were shooting in 4K or RAW resolution and the film would be screened at 720p.
All I can say about Cooktown is you must go; if you haven't been you haven't lived—and I don't mean this in any ironical sense. It looks like a perilously small country town, and so it is: it has a population of only 1400 or so. But like some Australian country towns, and unlike others, it has an atmosphere of almost utter serenity, intensified for us of course by the clamour of the drive and the sense that there is, in white man's terms at any rate, no further north than this. It's true the famous Cooktown south-easterly trade wind wasn't blowing that day, and that the weather was perfect in every other respect, too. ('Beautiful day', I overheard a guest at the motel say to the owner. 'You could call the Queen your aunt', he suavely replied.) It's also true that we arrived on the weekend, whereas it seems Thursday and Friday nights can be a little rowdy to say the least. True that we were there before the season really kicks off with the Cook landing re-enactment on the Queen's Birthday holiday weekend. (What a debauch that must be, for a patriotic pom!) But I'm sure none of that matters. Our motel was spotless and tranquil, and run by one of nature's gentlemen—who don't often run motels, be it said. (This was a short trip full of uncanny resemblances, and our host was the spitting image of Kingsley Amis.) The people we met, not that there were many, were
