Recycling pick up at 06:35am, no notice to residents, many missed the collection due to the sudden change of time. Lots of villagers complained to RDC.


Northern Powergrid requesting permission from the Parish Council to allow them to dig up the footpath from The Redings gateway to the front of The Rise to allow for upgraded electricity supply to this property. Wayleave from NYCC state it is the Parish Council as it is the Parish Council as it is classed at the village green. Anne to write a letter stating the Parish Council are happy for the excavation and that the path is to be restored to its orginal state. Andy to sign the letter.


TPO at The Redings Low Hutton. All disappointed that a tree surgeon had not been asked to report on the state of the tree prior to TPO being approved. The PC felt the tree needed some work to make sure it was fit and healthy for the future.


Headed Paper for PC approved for use.
