15th JANUARY 2019

1.         Welcome, Councillors present & Apologies
David Banks (Chairman) welcomed Cllrs. Richard Kershaw and Simon Lealman and Philip Barraclough.  Andy Dorman had sent apologies.  He also welcomed one member of the public.

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

3.         Matters Arising
a)  30 mph speed limit
David has not progressed this item
b)  Monitoring of PRoW
David had re-considered and explained that he felt a written approach to landowners and managers would not be appropriate.  He suggested a verbal approach would be preferable and this was agreed.  David will discuss with Richard Wainwright, and others as appropriate, minor works that would be desirable and the Council’s willingness to assist practically or financially.
c)  Tree inspections
Jem had obtained two quotations from professionally qualified companies.  It was agreed that these were excessive in relation to Parish funding.  Jem will seek advice from NYCC and RDC, as well as Community First Yorkshire, as to how other small Councils meet this obligation.
d)  Low Lane End
It was generally agreed that the new barriers and posts erected by Highways England (HE) should reduce the number of HGVs using the land adjacent to the junction as a turning bay.  Simon reported that he had witnessed vehicles using the field gateway as a turning point and causing obstruction to the highway since the alterations.  Jem will write to HE to ask whether there is anything that could be put in place to discourage such use.
e)  Other village maintenance
Graham Milner was thanked for arranging for the beck by the Swing Bridge to be cleared.  He will finish clearing the culvert mouth manually.  Jem has asked Mark Wilson to clear the footpath between High and Low Hutton.
f)   War memorial
David has yet to visit memorials in Hull to ascertain whether Mark Armstrong is commemorated there,  Philip also has yet to research the War Memorials Register.
g)  Green in front of Derwent Avenue
David had met with the Yorkshire Housing Association site manager and the resulting re-instatement was considered acceptable.  The YHA will monitor recovery of the grass sward and carry out any necessary work.

4.         New Matters
            a)   Vehicle speed enforcement on York Road
Jem reported that the Council has been informed that speed detector vans will be positioned here from time to time.

5.         Planning
a) Extension at No.3 Station Cottages
     Revised plans had been submitted.  Parish Council had supported approval.
b)  Old Methodist Chapel
Application withdrawn
c)  Business Units at York Rd. Enterprise Park
Jem had submitted Council’s objection.  The applicant had written to say that the architect will try to address the issues raised.

6.         Finance
a)  Budget progress
The report to 31st December was considered to show that the position was satisfactory.  Jem pointed out that it was still likely that funds would be available for other worthwhile works.
i)      David reported that the Village Hall treasurer had requested payment for use of the Hall store cupboard for the PC filing cabinet.  This was agreed.  Jem will liaise about invoicing and payment.
ii)     It was agreed that road sweeping, particularly Barneygate Lane around Orchard corner, Low Lane from  Netherby Lane to Mynchon & Bardolph drive and from the Village Hall to Low Hutton Park, would be worthwhile.  David will ask Richard Wainwright if he would be able to undertake this on contract.
        Precept and Budget 2019/20
The draft budget was accepted.

7.         Any Other Business
a                  It was agreed that membership of Community First Yorkshire should be renewed.

9.         Date of Next meetings
