Matters Arising

Re-Cycling Bins

A cheque for £45.60 has been received for the recycling of paper and glass for the period April to June 2004.  Cllr. J. F. Robinson has contacted the recycling department to enquire about the possibility of recycling aluminium.  If we do qualify for this scheme it will not be until the new year.


2 Fair View, Skeffling

Planning permission for the development of this site has been refused.


Local Development Framework

Cllr. J. F. Robinson and R. Newsam attended the meeting in Hornsea.  The meeting was regarding the up dating of planning laws.  We will be contacted for feed-back in due course.  There is a time limit on producing the reports, so a quick response will be appreciated.  There will be further meetings.  These will include new housing development sites.


Jackson's 'laptops'

The clerk has written to Jackson's asking to be considered for one of the laptops. No response has yet been received.


Declaration of Interest

There were no declarations of interest


Annual Audit Fee

An Invoice for £141 has been received from the Audit Commission being the Audit fee for 2003/2004.  The clerk has written to Ms. Julie Talbot the Audit Manager querying this amount, as it is almost three times previous fees.  No response has yet been received.


Yorkshire Water

We  are  waiting  for  a  quote  from  Mick  Wilkin  to  clean  the  dykes.    When  this is received

Cllr. M. Turnbull will contact Trevor Smith of Yorkshire Water to arrange for the work to be done. The Land Registry made a mistake when registering Poor Green as Parish Land.  They had not marked the Parish Land boundary accurately. Cllr. J. F. Robinson has now had this omission rectified, and we are waiting for the final paperwork.


Set Back

Cllr. J. F. Robinson  has  contacted  Paull  Parish  Council.   He was advised to speak to Mr. Hume.  An informal meeting will be arranged by the secretary who will contact us with the details.


Bonfire Night

Everything has been arranged.  A donation box will be available at the Village Hall. The bonfire will be sited at the Village Hall, and the fireworks let off in Mr. Meadley's field.



The Precept will be set at the December meeting.



A Training Seminar on 'Meetings Procedure' is to take place at Thorngumbald Village Hall on Wednesday, 1 December 2004 at a cost of £15 per person.  This seminar is open to councillors and clerks.  It was agreed that Cllr. M. Turnbull and the Clerk, Mrs. Toni Cornford attend.  A cheque was raised in the sum of £30. Proposed:   Cllr M. Turnbull

Seconded:  Cllr. P. Payne

Humber and Wolds Rural Community Council

A letter and questionnaire was received titled Leader+.  This is a project inviting organisations to apply for EU grants to develop heritage/history and environment projects.  It was agreed that Cllrs. M. Turnbull and J. F. Robinson liaise on this with a view to finding out more, and possibly applying for a grant to restore various local historical sites.
