The minutes of the last meeting did not make it clear that Councillor Oliver left the table for minute item 64 and returned upon its resolution.

Resolved – Subject to this amendment the minutes of 15 September 2014 are signed as a true and correct record.





The clerk updated on the following


Bollards for Cycle Path at Routh

East Riding of Yorkshire Council have responded to the request by re-iterating that neither the independent inspection nor the safety audit have raised any issue regarding the end of this route and therefore they do not see the need for bollards.


Road Surface on A1035

East Riding of Yorkshire Council have, as previously promise, resurfaced the road using materials that reduce surface noise although the benefit may take 3 to 6 months to be realised as the new chippings ‘bed in’.  They will undertake some road noise monitoring after 3 to 6 months and share the results with the Parish Council. 


Cycle Path Signage

A scheme is currently underway to improve the signing on the cycle path and the issue raised by the Parish Council regarding the lack of signage to show that the route continues along the old part of Hull Bridge Road and does not end at that point will be fed into those undertaking the review.


Emergency Planning

The Emergency Planning Team have agreed to present at our next Annual Parish meeting on 27 April 2015.  In the meantime they have asked for names of contacts to be forwarded to them who would be happy to be contacted in case of emergency.  All names to be sent via the clerk


Review of Polling Districts Polling Places and Polling Stations

The review of polling districts, polling places and polling stations is now complete, and the proposal for Tickton and Routh is as before with polling stations at Tickton Village Hall for Tickton Parish and at 2 Park Farm Cottages, Main Road for Routh Parish.





Councillor Birmingham was unable to attend and sent his apologies prior to the meeting





Recent reports from the police and neighbourhood watch were discussed.  There had been unconfirmed reports of a break in and a probable attempted break in in the area. The Parish Council also noted the information that a new inspector had been appointed for Beverley and the report from East Riding of Yorkshire Council on their concerns regarding changes to policing across the Humberside Police area.

Permission is granted


Planning Applications

Ref 14/03027 – Removal of condition 4 (agricultural occupancy) of application reference 308-28E at 242 Hull Bridge Road, Tickton for Mr & Mrs Bromby

Resolved – No observations are made


Ref 14/03061/PLF – Change of use of land to permit the siting of touring caravans and tents for holiday use together with the erection of  a shower/toilet amenity block at land south east of High Farm Main Road Routh for Mr P Northgrave

Resolved – an objection is raised.  The objection is not to the siting of touring caravans or tents on this site but to the plan presented as the entrance and road access are not fit for purpose.  Of particular concern is that the plan maintains a single access entrance even though a condition of the previous application (09/02123) was that his should be widened to incorporate two way vehicular traffic. Additionally, the plans for alterations to the busy A1035 at the entrance to the site which is already an accident black spot, do not seem sufficient for a number of touring caravans attempting to turn into the site, whilst vehicles are attempting to exit the site.  The Parish Council feel strongly that the current plan is inadequate and would like this referred to the appropriate Committee/sub- Committee if the planning officer is recommending approval.


If the scheme is approved the Parish Council feel that the following conditions should be imposed


Anaerobic Digester at Leven

A proposal to replace the current approved scheme had been put forward and comments had been invited.  A public exhibition had been held on 17 October to view the company’s plans which was attended by Councillor Oliver.  Leven Parish Council were organising a public meeting for residents of Leven and nearby villages on Friday 24th October 2014 from 6.45 pm at Leven Sports Hall. Councillor N Walker would attend on behalf of Tickton and Routh Parish Council.

Resolved – A response is to be sent to the company stating that the Parish Council are concerned about the proposed size of this development and the effect such a development would have on the roads, the sewage and drainage systems, the environment and the local ecology and the detrimental effect the smells would have on the villages in the area and especially on the business of the food manufacturer nearby.  This is the wrong place for such a development on this scale.

The clerk presented the outturn report at the end of September.

Resolved – The financial situation is noted.

Resolved – This scheme is approved in principle





Feedback was given on a recent Town and Parish Council Event which covered dog fouling and emergency planning.




The Joint Local Access Forum was aiming to develop the use of highway verges to link routes and asked for any issues regarding verges in the parishes either where verges were well used to enable pedestrians to proceed more safely than they would on the road where there was no footpath or where these verges were so overgrown that pedestrians had to use the road.  The Annual report of the Joint Local Access Forum and details of its forthcoming meeting had also been distributed.

Resolved – Attention is drawn to the following verges where problems occur

There being no further business the meeting closed at 9.30pm. The next ordinary meeting of the Parish Council was scheduled for 17 November 2014.
