Chairman's Report


Following three very active years, this has been a relatively quiet year of consolidation.

The  Parish  Plan  has  received  compliments  from  various  organisations  on its professionalism.

Along  with  representatives  of  other  Councils, Cllr. P. Payne and Cllr. R. Newsam were asked to represent Skeffling at a reception to recognise their work.  There the Parish Plan was promoted as being a first class presentation of the village and the community.


Later  in  the  year  Skeffling  Parish  Council  was  nominated  for  a  Microgeneration Award and

Cllr. J. F. Robinson   and   Mrs.   Cornford   attended   the   award   ceremony   in   York   where

Cllr. J. F. Robinson accepted the Award on behalf of the village.  It was to recognise the village's growing green credentials in its recycling efforts and the production of green energy from the wind turbine.


The northern boundary of the village green was fenced and the land registration was completed.


The re-routing of the path at Winsett's Farm is about to be finalised and, hopefully, the new restricted bridleway will be in use very shortly.


This year we have continued to address the problem of flooding in the village.  A close watch is being kept on tide levels at the Humber Bank and the Council are continuing to debate the excess water problem coming from the gas site in Easington.  This particular problem has not been resolved but will be constantly reviewed.


Earlier in the year Skeffling Community Website was launched by Thomas Hessell of Swanland Cottage, Skeffling.  As the website expanded a section for Skeffling Parish Council was added. This includes Agendas and Minutes, the Parish Plan and information on Councils past and present. The website is constantly changing and being updated and has a large following with visitors from all over the world.  It is informative, interesting, and a worthy vehicle to promote Skeffling and the surrounding area.  The Council would like to congratulate Mr. Hessell on his initiative and enterprise in creating the website.


Whilst it has been a quiet year the Council will continue with their plans to improve the facilities and quality of life in Skeffling.


The meeting was closed at 7.20 p.m.
