Matters Arising

Listed Building Status

It was agreed that the Chairman contact Mr Edward Atkinson again to query the listed building status on various sites in the area.


Litter Bins

Karl Jeffs is looking for second hand litter bins for the village.  There will be one at the Village Hall, one at the church, and possibly two at the crossroads.  Emptying of the bins will be our responsibility.


Planning Permission

A letter has been received from Mr. S. Turnbull of Wilberforce Farm complaining about the proposed agricultural building to be sited there.


Recycling Bins

A letter has been received from Mr Ian Hodson, Environment Services Officer for Re-cycling outlining third party recycling credits.  These are as follows:- "This financial year, the recycling credit is worth £24.52 per tonne.  Glass recycling is free of charge, so we can pay the third party (e.g. Skeffling Parish Council) the full value of the credit.  Paper recycling costs us £16.34 per tonne.  We deduct this from the value of the credit and pay the third party the difference, which is £8.18 per tonne." He also asked that we confirm in writing how we would use the money for the benefit of the local community.  Cllr. M. Turnbull proposed that:  "…any monies would be used to advertise and inform the parishioners of the benefits to the community of recycling waste".

Proposed:   Cllr. M. Turnbull

Seconded:  Cllr. R. Newsam

Vote:  Carried unanimously


The Clerk was instructed to write to Mr Hodson asking for any information or literature which would help us advertise this scheme.


Any Other Business

Yorkshire Wildlife Trust

Mr. Steve Warburton has contacted the council as to whether the Village Hall could be used for educational facilities for the children in the area.  The Council agree to this.

Proposed:   Cllr. M. Turnbull

Seconded:  Cllr. M. Hall

Vote:  Carried unanimously


Household Fires

There has been a complaint about household fires being lit during the day and causing upset to neighbours.  The Council have asked that people be sensible about this and give due consideration to others when lighting fires.



There has been a complaint about caravans being parked in the village and it was queried whether these are being used as permanent residences.  It seems this is not the case. Therefore, the Council has no jurisdiction in this matter unless it can be proved otherwise.


Speed Limit

There have been several reports of cars still speeding through the village.  The Clerk was instructed to write to the Police asking if they can be present during 7 - 9 a.m. and again at 4 - 6 p.m. to monitor the situation.


Date of Council Meetings

It was agreed that the day of the monthly Council meetings be changed to the 2nd Monday of every month.


The meeting closed at 8.30 p.m.


Date of next meeting     11th November 2002
