Declaration of Interest
There were no declarations of interest.
Cllr. J. F. Robinson has been in contact with CE Electrics regarding the disconnection of the streetlight and was told it would cost £400. He is continuing to negotiate with them about reducing this figure. He has also contacted East Riding of Yorkshire Council regarding an annual contract to supply and service the light. This plan would cost £71 per annum. Until Cllr. J. F. Robinson has completed negotiations with CE Electrics the matter will remain pending.
WSEHP Parish Sub Group
The next meeting of the Partnership Parish Sub Group will be on 3rd March at 7pm at Skeffling Village Hall. Cold weather plans were discussed and the Councils' views and ideas will be put forward at the meeting on 3rd March.
Three days after the pumping station and water levels were checked the pump broke down. This has now been replaced, and everything is working well.
The only correspondence was for information only and put in the folder.
There was no public speaking.
Cllr. M. Turnbull left the meeting at 8.35pm and took no part in the following item. In Cllr. M. Turnbull's absence Cllr. J. F. Robinson, Vice Chairman, took the Chair.
Comments letter to East Riding of Yorkshire Council
A lengthy discussion took place regarding the letter Skeffling Parish Council wrote to East Riding of Yorkshire Council supporting Cllr. M. Turnbull's application to have the local needs Clause on his planning application removed.
Our letter to East Riding of Yorkshire Council was altered before being put before the planning committee. As a result of this editing the salient points in the letter were omitted completely, thereby changing the meaning and tone of the letter. As a consequence Councillors felt very strongly that the 'revised version' of our letter did not effectively reflect Skeffling Parish Council's views.
Upon investigation it was discovered that East Riding of Yorkshire Council was entitled to alter comments letters "for the sake of brevity". Skeffling Parish Council are extremely dissatisfied with this 'rule', but are unable to change it.
Meeting closed at 8.45pm
Date of next meeting: 1st March 2011
