been walking and cycling as part of their daily exercise.

Information update on Services
This contains which services are affected during the current
emergency and has been issued to all Parish Councillors - SEE
Tackling Anti Social Behaviour
The team has responsibility for the Safe and Sound
Grant, a scheme to help residents stay safe in their own home. It is
here to help those who suffer from anti social behaviour and our website
provides helpful information on anti social behaviour and what can be
done to tackle it: http://www2.eastriding.gov.uk/living/crime-and-community-safety/anti-social-behaviour/
We rely on information that residents pass on and we encourage you to
use our website and report anti social behaviour to Humberside Police
on 101 or your Anti Social Behaviour team on 01482 396 380.
A general reminder to all dog walkers that
they have to clean up after their dog, whatever the weather or
leaf or snow cover. The same applies to the hours of darkness
- you need a torch. There are plenty of litter bins throughout
the Parish, so please pick it up. When the children are encouraged
to walk to school it is only fair that dog mess is picked up.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council
has issued Fixed Penalty Notices in Kirk Ella for failure to clear
up after a dog has fouled. If any resident can
identify a dog walker who does not clean up, with the time and
place, they should report it to ERYC, and the dog warden will
try to visit the area. We have some stickers and will be affixing
these to the lamp posts around Pine. Meadows. If any resident
knows of other areas where more stickers are needed, please let
us know. When the pavement is dry, we will use the Parish Council
stencil and spray paint but it is not suitable in wet and cold
weather. Liz and Tom
to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Parish Council will not be holding
meetings until further notice
from your Chairman - October 2020
I thought you would like to know that your Parish
Council members are still working hard for you in spite of being handicapped
by the coronavirus restrictions. We recently had a meeting with Mr Paul
Butler and Mr Mark Ballentyne representing Lovell Builders and Cllrs.
Neil Oakes, Shaun Horton and myself from the Parish Council. The aim
of this meeting being a further consultation exercise regarding planning
and development on the former Wolfreton School site. We were given a
copy of the first plan and a more recent amended one with more open
spaces and more trees giving cover between the site and the dwellings
in White Walk, so slightly reducing the number of properties to be built.
We still feel Kirk Ella deserves better and have requested a second
look at a second entrance especially in case of an emergency and also
complete pavements so as not to have pedestrians and the disabled in
wheelchairs forced to share the road with large delivery vehicles. This
is a road safety issue. I doubt that we will get everything on our wish
list but we must try.
To add to the road traffic issues in our area, I can confirm that Beal
Development has been granted planning permission for the erection of
141 dwellings on land south of 21 Great Gutter Lane West. You can guess
at how many householders will have one of two cars and imagine what
the road to the A164 or Willerby Square will be like.
Our Clerk has recently received a communication from Chris Lawson,
a resident in the area, quote ‘regarding the quite dreadful smells
that have permeated some of our area over the past few weeks’.
He states that ‘on virtually every single occasion when there
is an unwelcome smell it appears that Biowise/Wastewise are automatically
blamed’. He says that he has ‘invested substantial time
and effort to investigate all the recent unpleasant smells at the actual
time that they occurred’. The Environment Agency has sent officers
to monitor the level of smell and the E.A. is totally unbiased. He then
states that a licence has been granted for the ‘disposal onto
local land the tipping and spreading of hundreds of tons of treated
human waste and the tipping of equally large amounts of chicken manure’.
Anyone wishing to see Mr Lawson’s photographs which he says proves
his point should contact him through Mandy, our Parish Clerk.
We have had one further complaint about the condition of the King George
playing field or as some people call it, the Gorton Road playing field.
I have passed it on to one of our local ERYC Ward Councillors, Councillor
Councillor Margaret Raymond

The Annual Report was written in February 2020
then given to the printer in March, and printed at the end of that
month. Because of "lock down" the delivers would not accept
them and the Clerk has had to store them at her house until Friday
26 June, when the distributors accepted them. The delivery service
has now resumed. Please accept our apologies for the delay. SEE
