A member of the public supported the provision of a bus shelter on Main Street, requesting that the Parish Council puts pressure on East Riding of Yorkshire Council to move quickly and asked the Parish Council to consider purchasing an additional salt bin for Churchfields.



Resolved –The minutes of 10 December 2012 are signed as a true and correct record.




Red and Green Cottages

The Empty Property Officer has now stated that the long term empty properties including these cottages on Weel Road will be re-assessed at a later date.


As the property is post 1840 there are insufficient grounds for Red and Green Cottages to be listed but the Conservation Officer did find an entry in a renowned series of architectural guides – and most buildings mentioned in the guides should qualify as undesignated heritage assets.


Parking on Green Lane

Patrick Wharam the Countryside Access Manager has been asked to advise on measures that can be taken to prevent parking at the entrance to the public right of way.


Resurfacing of A1035


The request for a review of the speed limit has been added to those investigations pending but will probably be undertaken within the next 3 months.  However if it transpires that the situation does not warrant immediate action it may be deferred until finance is available.


A response from Service Manager for ERYC Highway Maintenance quotes research that determined that residents should see a noticeable improvement in road noise when the new surface is laid.





Due to adverse weather conditions a ward councillor was unable to attend this meeting but Cllr Pollard will be contacted and asked to put pressure on East Riding of Yorkshire Council regarding the provision of a bus shelter on Main Street.  Feedback had been received that no Parish bus shelters were being purchased by ERYC at present (and had been for all of the current year) as the policy of transferring ownership was under scrutiny.  There was a danger if this was not resolved that the budget for Parish shelters in 2013/4 would be allocated elsewhere.




The information received from the Police and Neighbourhood Watch was noted.

107  2013/4 PRECEPT 


Notification had been received from East Riding of Yorkshire Council that an amount of £1632.21 council tax support would be paid to the parish.  This money could be used to fund any expenditure lawfully incurred by the Parish Council.  There is no guarantee that this support funding would be available in future years.  In 2013/14 Parish Councils will be exempt from the principle that an increase of more than 2% in precept amounts for Band D properties will be required to hold a referendum.  This may not be the case in 2014/15.


Resolved – The level of precept for 2013/4 is at £24,700 which enables the Band D council tax to be retained at the current level.
