huttonsambo.com email problems

If you use a huttonsambo.com email address then you might not be receiving any email through it.

Last Wednesday the hosting company who maintains the huttonsambo.com domain 'upgraded' to a new platform. Since then all email sent via @huttonsambo.com email addresses appears to have stopped working. I've placed a support request with the hosting company but not heard anything back yet.

If you're expecting anything critical it might be worth getting in touch with the sender and ask them to use your ISP email account instead.

At this point I don't even know if the forwarded email will eventually filter through or will simply have been discarded at the hosting company's end.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

If you know someone who uses an @huttonsambo.com email address, can you please pass this on, as I can't even access the list of huttonsambo.com users at the moment.

It's a mess folks, please be patient...

MINUTES OF PARISH COUNCIL MEETING - 30th JANUARY 2018

HUTTONS AMBO PARISH COUNCIL

DRAFT MINUTES OF MEETING ON
30th JANUARY 2018

1.         Welcome, Councillors present & Apologies
Richard Green (Chairman) welcomed Cllrs. Andy Dorman, David Banks and Simon Lealman and Clerk, Jem Charles.  He also welcomed one member of the public.

2.         Approval of Minutes
Minutes of the November meeting were approved and signed as being a true record.

3.         Co-option of new Councillor
It was unanimously agreed that Richard Kershaw should become Councillor and he was welcomed as he duly took his seat.

4.         Matters Arising
a)  Community Emergency Plan
Richard presented a draft plan based on a template provided by NYCC.  Concerns were expressed about the amount of personal data that appeared to be required particularly in light of the new General Data Protection Regulations.  There was also uncertainty regarding the intended target audience for any Plan and where copies would be kept.  Councillors will study the draft and submit suggestions to Richard G. by the 2nd of March.
b)  A64 road junctions 
County Councillor Caroline Goodrick had raised this issue with Highways Agency and NYCC Highways but a substantive response is still awaited.  Jem will write to Cllr. Goodrick on 15th February if nothing further is heard. 
c)  Mobile Post Office
Jem outlined communications with the Post Office Network Area Manager and explained that the problem appears to have been recognised and action being taken.  Jem will continue to liaise with the Post Office.
d)  Freedom of Information – Model Publication Scheme
Richard presented a draft based on the model scheme published by the Information Commissioner’s Office.  In order to shorten the length of the Huttons Ambo scheme, Richard will investigate whether information which is included in the model scheme, but which we do not hold, is required to be referenced.  As above it was felt that personal data should be kept to a minimum.  Councillors will study the draft and submit suggestions to Richard G. by the 2nd of March.
e)  War memorial
Councillors had inspected the monument, studied advice from bodies such as English Heritage and sought advice from a monumental mason.  It was considered that the condition probably did not warrant the damage caused even by gentle cleaning at present but that Andy will arrange for an inspection by the mason.
f)   Malton & Norton Neighbourhood Plan
            It was much regretted that the Council had only been asked to comment on a draft plan despite having agreed that it would be involved in plan preparation as a condition of any part of the parish being covered by the plan.  It was also unacceptable that only 6 weeks over Christmas had been allowed for feedback.  There was a general feeling that the preparation of the plan had been so mismanaged that the Council should not be involved and the part of the York Road Industrial Estate within the parish should not be covered by the plan.
It was agreed, however, that Jem will write to the M&NNP committee chair requesting that the Council be given sufficient time for meaningful input and that the public consultation be postponed until any agreed amendments to the plan are made.  It will be made clear that the alternative is that no part of the parish will be included in the plan.
g)  Transparency Code for Smaller Councils
Jem reported that the grant application had been approved.  Jem will purchase the equipment approved and arrange any training.

4.         New Matters
a) 30mph speed limit
It was agreed that many vehicles were driven at excessive speed, particularly along Back Lane and Buck Lane and that measures to calm traffic were desirable.  Installation of drive-over kerbs had exacerbated the problem.  David will write to NYCC Highways to explore what options might be achievable.

5.         Planning
a)  Hydramotion
Awaiting determination
b)  New House at Musley Bank
Awaiting determination
c)  Change of use of unit at Malton Enterprise Park
Jem will respond that the Council has no observations and is happy for approval to be granted.

6.         Finance
a)  Budget progress
            The report to 31st December was considered to show that the position was satisfactory.
b)  Draft budget 2018/19
It was agreed that the proposed budget was appropriate.  A number of suggestions were made for modest additional expenditure on items that residents will notice including planting native spring bulbs, road sweeping and installation of a bench beside the Public Footpath overlooking the Derwent.  Councillors will prepare costed proposals for consideration at the next meeting.
c)  Implications of new data protection regulations
David reported that, as the only relevant data held is that pertaining to the Clerk and that it is under his control, the regulations will not affect the Councils obligations.

7.         Any Other Business
a)  Richard G reported that Mike Potter, RDC Councillor, had suggested that he might hold a Ward meeting and asked for items for the agenda.  Councillors will tell Jem by 16th Feb. if they might be interested in attending, or to suggest items.

8.         Date of Next meetings
Tuesday 27th March 2018 and, provisionally, 22nd of May 2018 at 7.30pm.  The Annual Parish Meeting will also be held, provisionally, on the 22nd of May at 7.00pm.

PARISH COUNCIL DRAFT MINUTES - 28th NOVEMBER


1.         Welcome, Councillors present & Apologies
Richard Green (Chairman) welcomed Cllrs. Andy Dorman and David Banks and Clerk, Jem Charles.  He also welcomed Cllr. Caroline Goodrick (NYCC).  No members of the public attended.  Cllr. Simon Lealman was detained but joined the meeting during discussion of Item 3d.

2.         Approval of Minutes
Minutes of the October meeting were approved and signed as being a true record.

3.         Matters Arising
a)  Councillor vacancy
Jem reported that there had been no requests that an election be held and that notices had been posted asking for anyone interested to contact the Council.  No Councillor, nor the Clerk, has been contacted, so Richard asked all Councillors to raise the subject with anyone they feel might be interested.
b)  Community Emergency Plan 
It was agreed that a brief plan might be of benefit.  Richard will begin preparation making use of templates supplied by Grace Lawes (NYCC).
c)  A64 junctions – maintenance responsibilities
Richard presented copies of road plans supplied by NYCC Highways depicting the limit of maintenance responsibility as they understand.  Caroline Goodrick undertook to raise the issue, and to seek agreement between Highways England and NYCC Highways at the next Ryedale Area Committee meeting on 11th December.
d)  Mobile Post Office
Jem reported that the van was to be equipped with a new system which should make it better able to cope without a usable broadband connection.  The Post Office is also trying to set up a meeting, on site, with engineers from Openreach and TalkTalk as well as themselves and Jem.
e)  A64 pedestrian safety
Richard said that the report drawn up by the Action Group has been submitted to Highways England who have stated that it will be considered.  They will not begin to look at the issues until reports from the police and coroner have been received.
f)   Village maintenance
Jem has asked Mark to clear the pavement and gutter along Back Lane between the Low and High villages.
g)  Freedom of Information – Model Publication Scheme
Richard said that a publications scheme was a legal requirement.  He will start work drafting a scheme and forward it to Jem to review.
h)  Leader Grant
Richard has established that funding for broadband is not available.

4.         New Matters
a) War memorial
A request for cleaning has been received.  Councillors will inspect and consider the most appropriate means of returning the monument to an appropriate condition.
A suggestion has also been made that thought should be given to marking the centenary of the end of the Great War in 2018.  This was considered worthy of support but it might be organised by others rather than the Parish Council.
b)  Malton & Norton Neighbourhood Plan
A consultation paper has been received.  General dissatisfaction was felt that the Parish Council had not been involved, despite previous discussions and agreement.  Jem will draft a response for consideration by Councillors.


c)  Ryedale Local Plan
It was noted that no extension of the York Road Industrial Estate was proposed.  Councillors will study the Plan and let Jem have any comments by 14th December.
d)  Transparency Code for Smaller Councils
Central Government funding for IT equipment to enable Councils to comply with legislation will come to an end in March 2018.  Jem explained that he was happy to continue to use his own computer but that any future clerk may not be able or willing to do so.  Jem will investigate the funding available and prepare an application.
e)  Ryedale Action Yorkshire
The Council will renew subscription.  Jem will arrange the necessary payment.

5.         Planning
a)  Hydramotion
Revised plans have been submitted but the Council has yet to be consulted.  Jem will ascertain the current position.
b)  Unit 6 Malton Enterprise Park
Approved

6.         Finance
a)  Budget progress
            The report to 31st October was considered to show that the position was satisfactory.
b)  Precept
It was agreed that the precept should remain unchanged for 2017/18.  David will look at the implications of new data protection regulations.

7.         Any Other Business
            No matters raised

8.         Date of Next meeting(s)

HUTTONS AMBO PARISH COUNCIL

DRAFT MINUTES OF MEETING ON
10th OCTOBER 2017

1.         Welcome, Councillors present & Apologies
Richard Green (Chairman) welcomed Cllrs. Andy Dorman and Simon Lealman, and Clerk, Jem Charles.  Apologies had been received from David Banks and from Jessie Garnett who has reluctantly decided to resign on health grounds.  He also welcomed Grace Lawes (NYCC) and Bridget Skaife (Community Officer, RDC) for Item 3f), and two members of the public.

2.         Approval of Minutes
Minutes of the July meeting and the May Annual meeting were approved and signed as being a true record.

3.         Matters Arising
f)   Community Emergency Plan  (This Item was taken first)
Richard introduced Grace Lawes and explained that the Council was considering whether the preparation and adoption of a simple Plan would be appropriate and valuable.  Grace outlined the potential rĂ´le such plans fulfil in facilitating communication between the community, the emergency services and NYCC in emergency situations.  The Plan can assist the emergency services by providing local contacts, information about facilities and equipment available within the community as well as access considerations.  It can also highlight vulnerable properties and residents.  The value of the plan lies in improving the reaction to an emergency in the short term.   She offered to send templates that Councils can use to help draw up a Plan.
Richard thanked Grace and said that the Council will decide on how to proceed at the next meeting.
a)  A64 junctions – maintenance responsibilities
Richard reported on correspondence he has had with Kevin Hollinrake’s office, Caroline Goodrick (NYC Councillor) and NYC Highways.  It was stated, by NYC Highways, that there is agreement on the line at which NYC responsibility ends and Highways England (HE) begins.  Andy and Simon wondered whether the Highways England Boundary Plan being used by NYCC was the same as that used by HE.  Richard will try to gain sight of, or preferably access to, the Plan and the name of the responsible contact  in HE.
b)  Mobile Post Office
Jem reported on the correspondence and conversations with Kevin Hollinrake’s office, Openreach, the Post Office and others.  The PO Area Manager has agreed to raise the problem with her managers now that she is aware of its nature.  Jem will contact her again to ascertain whether any progress can be made.  The possibility of a concerted appeal from affected residents may be considered.
c)  Roads maintenance
The initial response from NYCC Highways had been supplemented by further remedial work.  It was agreed that the Council would continue to submit reports of damage warranting attention at, perhaps, six monthly intervals, if necessary.  Jem will write to NYCC to express the Council’s gratitude.
d)  A64 pedestrian safety
Richard reported that an Action Group has been established and that he has attended the first meeting.  Richard will circulate the minutes as well as a report of an analysis of the vehicular/pedestrian traffic along this part of the A64.  The Parish Council will contribute £100 in two instalments.
e)  Freedom of Information – Model Publication Scheme
Preparation and publication of a scheme was not thought necessary as the provisions of the legislation are being complied with, or exceeded, already.  Richard will check that a scheme is not a legal requirement.

4.         New Matters
None raised

5.         Planning
a)  Hydramotion
A revised application is still awaited.
b)  Barn West of Village Green – Walker Fold Barn
Outstanding issues have been successfully resolved.  James Morris said that he felt aggrieved that he had lost time and money as a result of a query raised by the Council and stated that any concerns should have be raised with him.  Richard explained the Council had always supported the application and the matter raised with RDC was administrative.
c)  Unit 6 Malton Enterprise Park
Awaiting determination.

6.         Finance
a)  Budget progress
The report to 30th September was considered to show that the position was satisfactory.

7.         Any Other Business
a)  TransPennine Express/Forestry Commission grants
This scheme was not considered appropriate for any project currently contemplated.
b)  Village maintenance
Pavement edges and kerb between High & Low villages and from Carr Cottages to the pinfold have become overgrown and covered in debris.  Jem will ask the grass cutting contractor to clear them now that grass growth has slowed.
c)  Barneygate Lane End
Simon reported that the vegetation on the triangle at was restricting visibility.  It was not thought likely that Highways England would alter the routine cutting programme.
d) Leader grants
Andy wondered whether community installation of a fibre optic cable could be considered in this scheme.  Richard will contact Amy Walker to enquire.
e)  Community Event - Hovingham
Richard drew attention to this event on the 19th of October.
f)   Councillor Vacancy
Jem will initiate the prescribed procedure for appointing a new Councillor.

8.         Date of Next meeting(s)
Tuesday 28th November and, provisionally, 30th of January 2018 at 7.30.
