Flood Defences

After a detailed discussion it was agreed that the condition of dykes and drains in the village was a priority matter.  Following further flooding in Church Lane at the weekend, urgent action must be taken to rectify the situation.  Specific details of problems in the village will be gathered and a special meeting, to include Yorkshire Water, East Riding Council and the Environment Agency, be arranged.  This will take the form of a Public Meeting.


The Council will convene a special meeting on 20th February at 7 p.m. in the Village Hall to collate the information and decide on a date for the Public Meeting.


Speed Limit on Main Road, Skeffling

Following a serious car accident at the junction of Chapel Lane and Main Road, it was suggested that a reduction in the speed limit would be of benefit to the village.  A draft letter is to be written, and support has been offered by Paula Danby of Traffic Management Section of OSD.


It was also agreed that a letter of thanks be written to Mr Mike Peak of the Highways Department, for his prompt action in replacing street signs following the accident.


Acceptance Forms

The Acceptance Forms were duly signed and witnessed by councillors.  These will be forwarded to the Returning Officer.


Any Other Business

Cllr. S. Rollinson brought up the matter of The Piggeries, Winsetts Road.  Three residential caravans have been introduced to this address, and there is some dispute as to whether the owners of the land have the necessary licence for this as the land is not a residential caravan site.  It has proved impossible to approach the caravans as dogs keep visitors away.  It was suggested that a letter be sent to the Borough Council informing them of the situation.


It was also raised that barns have been erected on Connor's farm without planning permission being applied for.  The farm also covers a local carriageway thereby denying right of use to the public.


Date of next meeting:  6th March 2001
