Matters Arising

Planning Application, Southfield Farm, Out Newton Road

We have received an email from Easington Parish Council regarding the above planning application, whose views broadly agree with ours.  Cllr. M. Turnbull proposed: ...that Skeffling Parish Council support the views of Easington Parish Council in the matter of the erection of a wind turbine at Out Newton Road and thereby increasing the industrialisation and changing the land use from agricultural to industrial land.

Seconded: Cllr. P. Payne

Vote: For - 4,  Against - 2


Declaration of Interest

Following a discussion It was decided that due to the present financial situation in the country the Precept for the year 2012/13 remain unchanged.  This will be the fourth year the Precept has been set at £1,320.

Proposed:  Cllr. M. Turnbull

Seconded: Cllr. J. F. Robinson

Vote: carried unanimously


BT Wind Farm - Update

Mr. Bob Swainson had arranged with the Parish Clerk to give a presentation to the Council before the meeting, updating us on BTs current position regarding the proposed Planning Application. He found he was unable to do this and would send a written report instead.  The Clerk did not receive the report and has not heard from Mr. Swainson.  This matter, therefore, is still pending.


Queen's Diamond Jubilee Celebrations 2012

A brochure has been received regarding promotional material for next year's celebrations.  This was put in the folder.


Archive Material

The Clerk is currently holding 4 boxes of Council papers and felt these should be sorted out and any necessary material stored with other archive documents.  It was agreed that a date be found for all councillors to see the material and decide which are to be kept.  This item will be put on the Agenda for December where a suitable date will be agreed.



All relevant correspondence was dealt with during the meeting.


Public Speaking

There was no public speaking.


Meeting closed at 8.30 pm


Date of next meeting:   6th December 2011
