Waste Local Plan
Residents who support North Yorkshire County Council’s plan to remove
the Cridling Stubbs landfill site from the waste local plan are asked
to see a Parish Councillor in order to sign a form stating this.
Consultations are nearing the final stages and one more show of our
feelings on this matter is needed.
The telephone number to contact the local police for non-emergency
cases is 01904 631321. There are
improvements taking place to the telephone system at the moment and so
please be patient when calling. Obviously,
for emergencies and to report crimes in progress, the number is still 999.
The farmer who cultivates the land at the back of the houses on Croft Lea
has asked that the gates from some of the houses into the field are
blocked up. This is to
prevent trespassing into the field and to stop damage to his crops.
message from our new District Councillors, Gillian Ivey and David Peart:
If any resident has a query or problem, please give one of us a call, and
see if we can help.

At the request of residents,
enquiries have been made about setting up a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme.
PC Mike Welsh will attend the Parish Council meeting on July 1st to
explain what this would involve. A
village co-ordinator has already volunteered her services and others have
expressed an interest in helping with the scheme but more will be needed.
If you are interested in joining or helping with the scheme, which
can play an important role in crime reduction, please contact Moira
Broadband Internet Access
It appears that some houses in the village can be connected to the
internet via Broadband and others cannot.
This is due to the distance from the Knottingley exchange.
The village is a border-line case for this distance.
However, this cut-off point for activation is to be increased in
the next few weeks and so if you have been refused for activation, try
again in the middle of July.
The telephone number to report anyone seen fly tipping is 0800 807060
which is the Environment Agency Hotline.
To report rubbish already tipped illegally, the telephone numbers
to get it removed are 01757 292113 or 292047 which is Selby District
