Parish Council 15th June 2017 at 7.00 pm Methodist Church Hall
😒 PARISH COUNCIL (part only) STRONG OBJECTION TO NEW ESTATE AT SCHOOL ROAD FOR SAFETY REASONS TO BE IGNORED BY PLANNERS?
North Yorkshire County Council will NOT pay for a roundabout.
😒 SELBY DISTRICT COUNCIL PLANNING COMMITTEE MEETS WEDNESDAY AT 2.00PM (Open to the public) to decide Application for up to 21 Dwellings at School Road location “with all matters reserved”. (i.e. We’ll tell you later!)
😐 This Application could set Precedents for future Planning Applications around Mill Lane and Orchard End. At least one Parish Councillor should be there so residents can be briefed at Thursday’s Parish Council where residents can have their say in the Open Public Forum promptly at 7.00pm.
😑 WILL VICE-CHAIRMAN COUNCILLOR BOB PROCTER TELL RESIDENTS ON THURSDAY IF HIS PLANNED ‘REGIONAL COMMUNITY CENTRE’ WILL BE CLOSE TO THIS NEW ESTATE SITE NEAR THE DODGY VILLAGE ENTRANCE JUNCTION WITH THE A63?
(“Hemingbrough is within the Eastern Community Engagement Forum area and we intend to involve all residents within that area and beyond in our project” for a “State of the Art Community/Leisure Centre for Hemingbrough and the surrounding area” – Grant Application)
Only a part of the Parish Council was in the Meeting to renew its strong opposition to this New Estate Application as a quarter of the Council, Bob Procter, Liz Carstairs and Forbes Davidson walked out of the Parish Council Meeting when it was discussed.
😓 WILL THE PARISH CHAIRMAN STRELCZENIE TRY TO RUSH THE PARISH HISTORY SOCIETY MEMORIAL GARDEN INTO PARISH COUNCIL OWNERSHIP DESPITE NO FINANCIAL OR TECHNICAL RISK ANALYSIS BY THE COUNCIL OF THE FUTURE OF FLOODED 30,000 LITRES DIESEL TANKS BENEATH IT, AND INTERNAL DISPUTES ABOUT A LATE-NIGHT VOTE AND COUNCILLOR ACCUSATION OF DOING THINGS BEHIND RESIDENTS’ BACKS?
The Parish Council Chairman is also a Parish History Society Director. The Society failed with a grant application and has to look around for Money.
😁RESIDENTS CAN DECIDE BETWEEN TWO CANDIDATES IN A PARISH ELECTION ON 27TH JUNE AT THE VILLAGE INSTITUTE TO FILL THE VACANT SEAT ON THE COUNCIL.
The Council Leaders Chairman Strelczenie (Parish History Society) and Vice-Council Procter (Hall for Hemingbrough) were surprised by a residents’ election call to avoid the ‘Mate’s Co-option’ by Councillors.
Village elders Councillors Chilvers and Terry backed the call for candidates independent of other village interests. The two independent Candidates are Vic Parkin of Back Lane, who has regularly observed Council meetings for the past two years, and Mark Allitt of Orchard End, who has not.
