Matters Arising

Yorkshire Water

A cheque has been received from Yorkshire Water in the sum of £238.47p. being full payment of our Invoice for hedging.  Yorkshire Water has, today, planted the hedging they had promised to do.  Cllr. J. F. Robinson has spoken to Dave Renshaw regarding the outstanding work.  Andy McLachlan is still proving difficult to contact regarding this work.  Cllr. J. F. Robinson will try to chase this up in a few weeks.



There has been no reply to our letter of 9th January agreeing that one caravan has been on site for more than 10 years.


Aluminium recycling bin

The aluminium recycling bin has been emptied and the contents sold for £19.20p.


Declaration of Interest

There were no declarations of interest.


Set Back

Emma Jasper has suggested we write to Phillip Wynn regarding our concerns over Set Back.  He will then forward our comments on to DEFRA.  If we do not do this it will be assumed we have no particular interest in the proposed plans for Set Back.  Cllr. J. F. Robinson proposed writing a letter in very general terms as to how Set Back will affect the village.  This will register our concerns with the Environment Agency and DEFRA.

Seconded:  Cllr. M. Turnbull

Vote:  carried unanimously


Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004

A letter has been received from ERYC asking for our comments regarding a move to electronic distribution of planning applications.  The questionnaire was filled in stating that Skeffling Parish Council currently does not have the necessary PC/laptop to receive planning applications via the Internet.  Only 50% of councillors have access to the Internet with broadband and email capacity.  It would not be possible for our Council to receive and comment on applications via email.  However, the Council was willing to move towards a system of electronic consultation on planning applications.  To achieve this the Council would need: a laptop, telephone line, a printer suitable for printing plans, mouse, overhead projector.  The Council would also require adequate training.  The Council would also require help with funding for peripherals, programmes, etc.



A reply has been received to our letter to Graham Stuart MP declining to provide the private addresses of councillors.  He accepted that the Council would prefer that any correspondence and communication be done through the clerk to the Parish Council as a body, and not as individuals.


The meeting closed at 8.30 p.m.


Date of next meeting:   7th March 2006
