Matters Arising


Parking Outside Village Hall

The booking form for the Village Hall has been altered and a sign will be made to read Skeffling Village Hall Car Parking at Rear.

Cllr. M. Turnbull proposed that this be passed over to the Village Hall Committee and they will be responsible for the signage.

Seconded:  Cllr. S. Robinson

Vote: carried unanimously


Winsett's Road

The decision to alter Winsett's Road will be made in February 2010.  Cllr. M. Turnbull will continue to follow up this matter and report back to the Council when the decision has been made.


Emergency Planning

This will be discussed by the Parish Plan Steering Group meeting.  They will decide how to take this forward and report back to the Council.


Flood Defences

Cllr. M. Turnbull has been taking tidal levels to see how close we come to flooding. This information will go to the Liaison meeting at Easington to try and persuade them that we do have a problem with their excess water.  This will also justify our need to maintain the flapper door and keep it working.


Declaration of Interest

There were no Declarations of Interest.


Finances - Clerk's Salary

After  a detailed discussion it was agreed to increase the clerk's salary from £120 pa. to £350 pa. with a review next year.  This increase is the first for 10 years, and reflects the increased work done by the clerk.

Proposed:   Cllr. M. Turnbull

Seconded:  Cllr. J. Sizer

Vote:  carried unanimously


Awards Presentation

Cllr. J. F. Robinson and Toni Cornford will attend the Microgeneration Awards ceremony at the York Hotel, York.  Skeffling Parish Council have been shortlisted in the category Best Community Installation.



All correspondence was for information only and put into the folder.


Public Speaking

Mrs. Margaret Meadley said that a notice has been placed on the Church door regarding the refurbishment work.  This involves removing tree roots which are encroaching into the Church.


Meeting closed at 8.45pm


Date of next meeting:   2nd March 2010
