31     COMMUNITY SAFETY

 

Crime Figures

The report on crime figures for May was noted.

 

It was confirmed that the abandoned car on Green Lane had now been removed.

 

32     PLANNING APPLICATION

 

 

Resolved – The application is refused for the reason that  having considered the application and listened to the applicant the Parish Council believe that there is insufficient validation for removing this clause and that the original planning permission for eleven month holiday accommodation should continue to apply.  An amendment to allow the phase 1 chalets to be occupied at any time of the year as holiday accommodation is not deemed to be justifiable.

Bench for GL Cullington Field

Three alternative suppliers for a new bench for the GL Cullington Field were considered.

 

Resolved – The Marmax Traditional Three Seat Bench is to be ordered in brown

 

34     GL CULLINGTON FIELD

 

The Parish Council considered a request from East Riding that responsibility for maintenance and insurance for the Play Pathfinder Equipment on the GL Cullington Field should now be handed over.  East Riding confirmed that they would address the outstanding issues, namely the strip between the end of the multi – use games area and the car park would be top soiled and seeded; bolts on the gyrospiral would be filed smooth; a cap on the interior of the supernova would be replaced; a cap on the back end of the ball court would be replaced and the basket swing would be re-hung with minimum ground clearance of 400mm

Additionally they will re-site the gyrospiral next winter at their expense subject to an appropriate location being found.

 

Resolved – The handover will take place as soon as the insurance cover can be put in place.  One additional item is to be added to the list, namely the strip at the opposite end of the multi-use games area should also be top soiled and seeded to eliminate the large drop off immediately after the edge of the court

 

35     GL CULLINGTON FIELD

 

Councillors considered the condition of the four areas of the activity trail/trim-track on the GL Cullington Field.

 

Resolved – The wooden posts to the side of the tennis court are to be removed.  A resolution on the other items is deferred until the next meeting in order to calculate fully the costs involved in renovating the equipment and providing a protective surface. 

 

(Cllr Morris and Cllr Oliver left the meeting at this stage.  Cllr Sinkler took over as Chairman)

 

36     REQUEST FROM VILLAGE HALL COMMITTEE

 

The Parish Council considered a request from the Village Hall  Committee that Tickton AFC are informed that the playing field will not be available for any matches or training on Saturday 24 September, 2011, until after 1.30 pm due to a event taking place in the village Hall that day.  They also requested use of the GL Cullington Car Park for overflow parking.

 

Resolved – Both requests from the Village Hall Committee are approved

 

37     MOBILE FISH AND CHIP VAN

 

The Parish Council considered a letter asking for approval to the siting of a mobile fish and chip van outside the Village Hall.  The Village Hall Committee had also received a similar letter.  A discussion with East Riding had established that no licence request had yet been received by them, and if in future they did receive a request the Parish Council would not be a statutory consultee.

 

Resolved – The Parish Council do not believe that it is appropriate for a mobile fish and chip van to be situated on the public highway outside the Village Hall due to the adverse effect on road safety and traffic congestion

 

(One member of the public left at this point)

 

(Cllr Oliver and Cllr Morris returned at his point and Cllr Morris resumed his role as Chairman)

 

38     ERYC OPEN SPACE REVIEW 2010 & PLAYING PITCH STRATEGY 2009

 

These documents and the accompanying Parish Audit and Supply reports had been circulated for consultation by East Riding.

 

Resolved – A letter is to be sent pointing out the inaccuracies in the audit data re the current situation in Tickton and Routh Parish

 

39     MOTIONS PROPOSED BY COUNCILLORS

That on a recurrent basis the PC employs contractors to cultivate the planters with the handy-persons being responsible for the day-to-day maintenance and watering.

 

Resolved – The motion is carried

 

Cllr Oliver proposed the following motion:-

That the PC considers removing all plants from the area behind the seat situated on Weel Road Tickton and replant with a tree (possibly cherry for spring interest to compliment the bulbs) and some low growing easy maintenance shrubs.

Resolved – The motion is deferred until after the handymen have cut back the existing foliage
