Matters Arising

Hospital Closures

An email has been received from Graham Stuart's office saying the item on the PCT Board agenda to decide on the hospital closures has been delayed until 23 May because of overwhelming local objection to the plans.



Cllr. J. Sizer arranged a meeting with Mike Metcalfe.  Mr. Metcalfe has now seen the problems and taken photographs of the footpath outside Elmfield.  Cllr. J. Sizer has asked for a list of the remedial work Mr. Metcalfe has agreed must be done.


Out Newton Road

Cllr. J. F. Robinson has asked Mike Peeke of Highways to speak to the relevant people to try and sort out the problems with the road.  Centrica has already been contacted, but it is difficult to find out who is responsible and negotiate with them.


Declaration of Interest

There were no Declarations of Interest.



After a long discussion on the Council's involvement with ERNLLCA, Cllr. M. Turnbull proposed that the Council do not renew the subscription with ERNLLCA.

Seconded:  Cllr. J. F. Robinson

Vote:  carried unanimously

The subscription for this year would be £90.32p.  It was felt that the Council had insufficient need of ERNLLCA's services to warrant the increased subscription fee.


Zurich Insurance

The renewal premium for the annual insurance is due.  Cllr. M. Turnbull will ring Zurich's underwriting department to discuss adding the wind turbine to the cover. When the addition cost is known the premium will be paid.


Village Hall Refurbishment

As there is still money left from the grants a list has been made of work which would improve the facilities of the Village Hall.  Councillors have listed work still to be done. These will be prioritised and as much of the work as possible will be carried out.  There are further grants available for help to refurbish the Village  Hall, these could include additional kitchen units, flooring, etc. These grants must be claimed by the end of April.  The Council and Village Hall committee will hold a meeting on Thursday, 12th April, to prioritise needs with a view to applying for the additional grant by 30th April.



The Parish Council's Planning Liaison Meeting has sent a questionnaire.  This will be completed by Cllr. M. Turnbull.


Public Speaking

Mrs. Meadley thanked the Council for their support on objecting to the Hospital Closures.  It has now been announced that the Accident and Emergency Unit in Bridlington will be open 24 hours a day.  She also thanked the Council for bringing this matter to the attention of the villagers.


The meeting closed at 8.30 p.m.


Date of next meeting:   3rd May 2007
