Matters Arising

Set Back

As Cllr. R. Newsam was absent this item will be put on the next agenda.


Major Acres

The Parish land has now been registered, so this matter will be discussed fully at a later date.


Insurance on Village Hall

The insurance has now been agreed with the Village Hall Committee   The Council has issued a cheque for £322.50 as per the quote from the Insurance Company. The paperwork is still to be received.


Yorkshire Water

As a result of the meeting with Yorkshire Water, the Chairman has received a letter from Trevor Smith which contained a list of our original complaints, but no indication of what will be done to rectify them.  Cllr. M. Turnbull has tried to contact him 7 times to discuss the matter, but he has been unavailable on each occasion. The original list contained about 30 problems.  Yorkshire Water have admitted 8 of them.



Cllrs. M. Turnbull and J. Sizer attended a meeting of ICZM regarding plans for the coastline.  80 wind turbines are to be sited off the coast at Kilnsea.  There will be 200 contractors involved, with the project taking approximately 2 years.  This will mean an increase in heavy traffic through the villages.  The new pipeline from Norway to Easington means that all the work will culminate at Easington, which could cause more problems for the villages.  ICZM will liaise with the Parishes affected by the increased movement of heavy traffic, and forward all information to the Council.


Declaration of Interest

Cllr. L. Payne declared an interest in the Village Hall item.



Cllr. J. F. Robinson has suggested fencing the area around the village hall.  As he was not present at the meeting it was agreed to defer this item until the entire Council was present.



Cllrs. M. Turnbull and S. Rollinson are to attend a meeting on the 9th June at a play park to see what equipment is available for a play area.  The meeting will discuss EEC regulations to find out what is needed.  The information will be put before the Council for a decision to be made on the viability of a small play area.  In addition, insurance for any play equipment is to be investigated and costed.  In the meantime it was agreed that a disclaimer notice be put on the swing.


Recycling Bins

There have been a few requests to move the recycling bins back to the Village Hall site.  It was decided to leave them where they are at the moment, with the option to move them at a later date.  This item to be put on the next Agenda for a full discussion.


Land Registry

The land has now been registered to the Parish Council.  It was decided to ask ERNLLCA to advise on the legal aspect of deeding the land, in perpetuity, to 'the people of Skeffling', and not to any individual body or person.  This will be to preserve and protect the land from being used for financial purposes in the future.


Any Other Business

Cllr. Lynda Payne brought up the subject of replacing the Village Hall flooring.  The Village Hall committee have decided on the type and quality of the flooring needed and have been quoted approximately £2,500, to include labour costs and all materials.


Meeting closed at 8.35 p.m.


Date of next meeting:  6th July 2004
