Minutes of meeting held on 1st August 2006


The minutes were accepted as an accurate account.

Proposed:   Cllr. M. Turnbull

Seconded:  Cllr. J. Sizer

Vote: carried unanimously


Matters Arising

Planning permission for 7 West View, Skeffling (06/05213/PLF)

Cllr. M. Turnbull has contacted the Planning Department and further information regarding the specifications of the wind turbine has been received from Mr. Houghton.   Some aspects of the planning proposal are still unclear and Cllr. M. Turnbull will have further discussions with Malcolm Jackson of the Planning Department before a decision is made.


Declaration of Interest

There were no declarations of interest.


Planning Application for Wind Turbine (06/07150/PLF)

We have received the Planning Application for the wind turbine at the Village Hall. As the Council has an interest in this matter it could not be discussed and the paperwork relevant to will be sent back to the Planning Department pointing this out.



The fencing has been erected on the south side boundary.  A gate has been hung on the Pinfold next to Wilberforce Farm in compliance with the public right of way. A 5ft gap has been left for access to the public footpath.  This was marked out by an independent surveyor and the two land owners.  Please see statement and map attached to these Minutes.


Energy Efficiency

The DTI grant has now been granted.  Provided planning permission is received, it is anticipated that the wind turbine will be up early in the new year.  All the preparatory work can been done before this.


Long Lane

It has been reported to the Council that Long Lane is not on a definitive map of the village, but it is on the East Riding of Yorkshire Council street plan.  Now the environment Agency is trying to get this off the street plan so as not to have to compensate anyone when the area is flooded. Cllr. J. F. Robinson would like the Council to write to Stuart Mumby asking when Long Lane will be put on the definitive map.  As Long Lane is a highway this should be on the definitive map. Proposed:   Cllr. J. F. Robinson

Seconded:  Cllr. M. Turnbull

Vote:  carried unanimously



Cllr. M. Turnbull and Cllr. J. Sizer will attend the ERNLLCA meeting at 7.30pm on the 17th October at the Municipal Buildings, Withernsea.


Public Speaking

Mrs.  Meadley  asked  the  Council  if  they  would buy a gas lamp for the Church.

Cllr. J. Sizer will make find prices for the lamp, and the item will be put on the Agenda for next month.


The meeting closed at 9.25 p.m.


Due to a liaison meeting between Skeffling Parish Council, Welwick Parish Council and the Environment Agency to discuss Set Back, the November meeting will be held on Thursday, 2nd November 2006.



Statement and map relating to Fencing


Fencing, Posts and Gate erected on the North and South boundaries of Poor Green 26.09.2006


South Side

After   a   meeting   in  September  2006  between  Mr  Brian  Meadley  and  Cllr.  M.  Turnbull  &

Cllr. J. F. Robinson of the Skeffling Parish Council. It was agreed to be of mutual benefit to both parties to straighten the boundary between the South side of 'Poor Green' and the North side of 'Collage Field' (which is a grass field presently owned by Mr. B. Meadley) by erecting a sturdy fence, constructed of Jarrow Railway sleepers and lined with weld mesh. All work to be undertaken by, and at the expense of, The Skeffling Parish Council.


This would mean that at the West end of the fence line a small portion of 'Poor Green' would now become part of 'Collage Field' and at the East end of the fence line a small portion of 'Collage Field' would now become part of 'Poor Green' this would straighten the boundary between the two properties and be an improvement on the existing 'S' shaped boundary.


The proposed fence was erected on the 26.09.2006 and deemed to be satisfactory by both parties. ( See part of Title Plan YEA32535 attached, showing the new fence line with indications of posts marked with green dots ).


North Side

A boundary between the North side of 'Poor Green' owned by the Skeffling Parish Council and the South Side of 'Major Acre' a property owned by Mr. A. J. Major, has been marked starting at the West end and running East from Church Rd for some 40 feet, by inserting Jarrow railway sleepers at 6 foot intervals.


A boundary between the North side of 'Poor Green' owned by the Skeffling Parish Council and the South Side of 'Major Acre' a property owned by Mr. A. J. Major, has been marked at the Eastern end, on the boundary between the two properties. North of an area of 'Poor Green' known as 'The Pinfold'. By inserting 2 Jarrow railway sleepers 12 foot apart and hanging a padlocked 12 foot galvanised gate between them. Another Jarrow railway sleeper was inserted on the 'Pinfold to act as a Clapping Post for the gate when opened.


A 5 foot gap has been left open to the West of the gate and before the first tree of the large and ancient hawthorn hedge that marks the rest of the boundary between 'Major Acre' and 'Poor Green', this is to allow access for pedestrians to the footpath which runs over the 'Pinfold' and into 'Major Acre' before turning East and crossing the dike via a footbridge and on towards Easington. The Gate was deemed necessary to allow access for machinery to clean the drain which serves the Village of Skeffling.

( See part of Title Plan YEA32535 attached, showing the boundary posts marked with green dots).
