Matters Arising

Parish Plan

Cllr. P. Payne said that Karen Wood had contacted him to ask if he and another member of the Steering Group could give a presentation to the Rural Development Partnership on the 11th June. Representatives from Welwick and Easington  have also been invited.  The purpose of the presentation is a debriefing on the work involved in creating the Parish Plan.


Declaration of Interest

There were no declaration of interests.



Cllr. J. F. Robinson has contacted the company regarding road surfacing and verges.  It was a questionnaire for the company to come up with ideas for the future.


Litter in the Village

Cllr. J. F. Robinson suggested that if people were walking their dogs or just going for a walk they pick up any litter.  With summer visitors to the village it would help to keep the roads, pathways and verges tidy.


Flood Defences

As  we   have   not  had   a  response   to  our   letter   Cllr. M. Turnbull  will  ring Andrew Barron to press him for answers to the problems we listed.



Mr and Mrs Allen of Ings Lodge have withdrawn their application for a wind turbine.


The Open Spaces Society have written to thank the Council for the donation of £50.


A letter has been received from Inspector Andy Woodhead of Humberside Police with the results of the speed check carried out on Monday 23rd March.  They felt this was a successful exercise and expressed their concern at the amount of drivers found speeding.  Speeds between 45mph and 50mph were recorded through the village during 6.45am and 7.45am.  All the drivers stopped were going to Centrica, Easington.  The police will continue to monitor speeding through the area and all drivers exceeding the speed limit will be positively dealt with.


There have been reports of stray dogs worrying lambs who have wandered onto the road.  If anyone sees an incident of this kind would they please let a councillor know.


The meeting closed at 8.10pm.


Date of next meeting:   5th May 2009
