There were no declarations of interest.


Annual Audit

The Annual Audit has been completed and put before the Council.  The Audit figures were agreed as being an accurate account of the Council's financial dealings for the year 2010/2011. Proposed:   Cllr. J. F. Robinson

Seconded:  Cllr. M. Turnbull

Vote:  carried unanimously


Wayleave payment to Mr. Brian Meadley

A cheque in the sum of £150 was raised for the annual rental payment to Mr. Brian Meadley.  The clerk will check whether this be index linked annually or every 5 years.  Mr. Meadley has asked for a peppercorn rent of £1 per annum for the siting of the streetlight on his property. The peppercorn rent will be paid in advance each year and the cost of electricity used be paid in arrears each year.  A cheque was raised to the value of £1 being the peppercorn rent for 2011/2012.  In 2012/2013 the cost of the annual electricity used will be added to the peppercorn rent.


Flood Defences

The clough is now totally silted up, and the soak dyke has been drained.  The Environment Agency have not maintained anything properly and immediate action needs to be taken to correct this.  Cllr. M. Turnbull has spoken to the Environment Agency and told them they had polluted the drain with air.  He has also spoken to Arthur Hodgson, Chairman of the Flood Liaison Committee, about the matter.  We will write to the Environment Agency again with our concerns about maintenance.  Cllr. M. Turnbull has taken photographs which will be sent with the letter.



The clerk has signed the annual agreement with East Riding of Yorkshire Council for recycling payments to continue.


Public Speaking

There was no public speaking.
