Minutes of the Ordinary Meeting of Tickton and Routh Parish Council held in Tickton Village Hall, on Monday 19 November 2012



Councillor Morris (in the Chair)

Councillors Caley, Dobson, Hardy, Oliver, Sinkler, A Walker, N Walker, Webster



Councillors Harbidge, Wells


In Attendance:

Mrs Lloyd – Clerk (minute taker)

Ward Councillor Pollard (to agenda item 6 [minute 81 refers])



There was one member of the public present.





Prior to the meeting all Councillors present were handed letters showing they had been granted dispensations to enable them to participate in the discussion of and participate in any vote on the setting of the precept for the Parish in 2013/14 despite having a pecuniary interest for the reason that without the dispensation the number of persons prohibited would be so great a proportion of the Council as to impede the transaction of business (S31 (4) of the Localism Act 2011 refers).  As a result no such pecuniary interests were declared.


Councillor Morris declared a non-pecuniary interest in agenda item 9b (minute 84 refers) as Chairman of the Village Hall Management Committee; Councillor Oliver declared a non-pecuniary interest in agenda item 9b (minute 84 refers) as a member of the Village Hall Management Committee.





A member of the public updated the Parish Council about a petition that has been circulated in Tickton to request that when the A1035 is next resurfaced a quieter surfacing is used to eliminate some of the noise of the traffic.  At present this petition has been restricted to those householders whose property is on the A1035 side of Main Street, Tickton.  The A1035 is scheduled to be resurfaced early next year, so this was seen as a good opportunity to make this request.  Over the next few weeks the opportunity to sign the petition will be extended to all those residing in the village, and on Hull Bridge Road and those residing on either side of the A1035 in Routh.



Resolved –The minutes of 15 October 2012 are signed as a true and correct record.




Upgrade of Cycle Paths


East Riding have responded to our concerns about the safety of cyclists crossing the A1035 with a proposal that a central island is constructed which allows the road to be crossed in 2 stages.  Bids for central funding have to be in by the end of November but are likely to be oversubscribed.



Public Rights of Way


A response from Albanwise regarding their support was expected soon.



War Memorial


Mr Dodds thanked the PC for attending to the trees around the memorial and informed the PC that work to repair his wall and erection of fencing would soon commence ensuring privacy for the site.





Issues raised included the ditches on Butt Lane and an overgrown hedge on Meaux Lane.  Cllr Pollard also agreed to speak to the Highways Department regarding the request to resurface the A1035 with a quieter surfacing.





The information received from the Police and Neighbourhood Watch was noted.  It was stressed that Neighbourhood Watch cannot inform the police about potential crimes or investigate crimes.  Those suspecting/knowing a crime has taken place must make direct contact with the Police themselves.
