Matters Arising

Manorial Deed

Cllr. P. Payne has collected £80 from parishioners, being their donations towards the purchase of the Manorial Deed. This money to be paid into the Council's bank account.


Yorkshire Water

The site of the pumping station has been moved after objections from a resident. It is now being placed next to the bus shelter in Chapel Lane.


Great crested newts have been found on the work site.  It is believed to be their breeding ground.  This will not cause a problem to the work.


Annual Audit

The Audit for 2001/2002 has been approved.  We have been advised that we must have an internal auditor for the next audit.   Cllr. M. Turnbull will approach Mr Bill MacDougal to act as external auditor.  Next years Audit papers have been received and will be completed and put before the Council at the next meeting. They must be returned by 28 July.


Village Hall

Planning permission might be needed before the work to the walls and windows is carried out.  All the  relevant  details have been sent to the Council.  No response has yet been received and Cllr. M. Turnbull will chase this up.  When a decision has been made a further meeting of the Council and Village Hall Committee will be held.


Church - Dyke Repairs

Mr. Meadley has dug out his side of the dyke.  Highways are to renew the broken pipes.


Any Other Business

Following a query by a councillor whether planning permission had been sought for a conservatory at Yew Tree Cottage, Out Newton Road, Mr Fox of the planning department investigated.  The building was found to be 6 cubic feet larger than the size covered by Building Regulations, and, therefore, planning permission must be sought.  This has now been done.


Medieval connections have been discovered by Yorkshire Water at the site of the filtration plant. The Council will ask for a report.


Cllr. S. Rollinson reported that rubbish has been dumped at various sites in the village.  It was agreed this be removed by the Council.


The meeting closed at  8.20 p.m.


Date of next meeting:     1st July 2003
