Matters Arising

Cllr. J. Sizer has been unable to purchase the strimmer because of harvesting.  He will have more free time later this month.  Cllr. M. Turnbull is still chasing Yorkshire Water regarding the remedial work.  Cllr. J. F. Robinson has received maps from Yorkshire Water outlining the sewerage system in Skeffling.  They had promised to give us an updated version to show the sewerage system following the work done when the filtration plant was installed.  The maps are not fully up to date as the new  pipe  work  has  not  yet  been put onto Yorkshire Water's computer system.

The cheque for the annual rent has not yet been received and the Clerk is to write to Yorkshire Water to remind them.



A questionnaire has been received regarding the work done by Streetscene this year.  This was passed to Cllr. P. Payne to complete.


Declaration of Interest

There were no declarations of interest.



Cllr. J. F. Robinson has seen iron bench sides at Marshall's Yard.  They were £80 for two sets, but needed seats and backrest.  It was suggested that these would be suitable for Skeffling as to buy them new would be very expensive.  It was decided that this item be discussed at a later date.



All letters and booklets have been put in the current folder for circulation among Councillors. A letter has been received from the Audit Commission passing the Annual Audit figures for 2004/2005.  They have also made suggestion on how to use any large funds which might be received in the future.  Any extra funds received by the Council must be used for a specific project which has been previously agreed. A reply has been received from ERM regarding the Offshore Windfarm.  They have answered our questions as best they can, but stressed they don't have all the answers yet.  They will keep us informed at each stage, and have assured us the work will not start until 2008.


Public Speaking

Mrs.   Meadley   said   that   stretch   of   road   outside   Elmfield   still  needs  to  be  repaired.

Cllr. J. F. Robinson suggested contacting Mike Peeke of Highways Department to try and get something done soon as the situation has now become dangerous. Traffic is still going too fast through Skeffling and this is making the problem worse.


The meeting closed at 8.30 p.m.


Date of next meeting:   4th October 2005
