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
