95  PLANNING

 

Further Consultation on  East Riding Development Framework:

 

The core strategy was further discussed.

 

Resolved – The Parish  Council believe that Tickton is more suited to being a rural village than the  proposed hinterland village.  The  existing sewage, drainage and electricity infrastructure would not be adequate  to sustain hinterland development as it is described in the document and concern is expressed at a potential redefining of the village’s development  limits.  The problems in absorbing the  increase in the numbers of schoolchildren in the short term would put undue  pressure on key stage 2 numbers, which are already over capacity; even if in  the long term the school admitted only children from within the Parish.  Hinterland development in Tickton would
require substantial investment in infrastructure.  In general terms, the level of development  for a hinterland village needs to be more clearly defined than at present. 

 

 

96  FINANCE

 

Financial Statement:

 

The  financial statement for the year to the end of November and a forecast outturn  for the year were presented to the Parish Council.

 

Payments:

 

Mr Little

Resolved – To pay £30.02 for salary

 

Mr  Brice

Resolved – To pay £136.78 for salary

 

Mrs Lloyd

ResolvedTo  pay £ 897.60 for salary and £9.36 for expenses

 

HMRC

Resolved – To pay £344.40 for PAYE

 

ERYC

Resolved – To pay £138.92 for election  expenses

 

Nat  West Bank

Resolved – To pay £25.00 for safe deposit

 

Setting 2012/13  Precept:

The  level of budgeted expenditure predicted for 2012/13, the level of predicted  underspend for the current year and the existing general reserve to carry  forward were all discussed.

 

Resolved – In line  with the policy of ERYC the level of precept will remain at the same level as  it has been for the last 2 years at £26,400.  This would require most developments for the year to be funded from a  reduction in reserves.

 

 

97   SEVERE  WEATHER PLANNING AND GRANT ASSISTANCE:

 

A  snow plan and application for grant assistance had been circulated based on the  resolution made at the previous meeting.  A further breakdown of the equipment funding was required by East Riding  of Yorkshire Council.

 

Resolved – Another  salt bin and 6 refills of salt is to be added to the plan.  This bin is to be placed on the grass verge  of Hull Bridge Road near the bus stop.  Funding for three wheelbarrows and six builders shovels is requested.  Subject to these additions the draft snow  plan was approved.  To be finalised  automatically if the appropriate funding is received. 

 

98     LAT  VISIT TO WEEL

 

A  number of issues had been raised by Weel residents when the LAT visited.  A number of these would be dealt with by the  Police and East Riding of Yorkshire Council.  The items for the Parish Council were the dog stencils (which was  already in hand) and the playground equipment. Ms Bolton would write to all residents  making them all aware of the resulting actions

 

Resolved – Ms Bolton and the LAT are thanked for their visit.

 

 

99     MOTIONS PROPOSED BY COUNCILLORS

 

Cllr  Hardy proposed the following motions:-

 

‘That  the Parish Council pay for a Land Registry enquiry to ascertain the ownership  of three areas of “common land” within Weel at a cost of £50 per search,  allowing the Parish Council to determine where the proposed play equipment is  to be sited’.

Resolved – The motion is rejected but it is agreed that  enquiries will be made re the siting of additional play equipment on the common  subject to all safety considerations being met
