Parish Magazine update - March 2018

published on 1st Mar 2018

The following appeared in March's Parish Magazine:

Escrick Parish Council update

Maintenance working group - The Parish Council has established a small working group to help resolve maintenance issues in public areas - either by reporting to the responsible body, or arranging to have the work undertaken if the Parish Council is responsible. 

The Parish Council would welcome hearing from anyone interested in being contracted to undertake ad-hoc work (e.g. sweeping of footpaths, trimming bushes, etc). Please contact the chair (details below). The work is likely to generally consist of ad-hoc jobs of an hour or two in nature.

Tree & pond - Tree pruning is being undertaken on behalf of the Parish Council on The Glade, Main St and the playing fields during February and early March. The pond is being relined, and access to the surrounding area is prohibited until the work is complete.

Hedges & pavements - We continue to get complaints about hedges encroaching and overhanging pavements. Please can we politely remind residents that it is their responsibility to keep hedges trimmed and clear of pavements - and consider if pruning might be in order before the nesting season starts in earnest. 

Spring clean - No spring clean is planned for 2018 due to limited turn-out at recent events. 

Grit bins - The Parish Council considered a request for additional grit bins, and decided not to increase the number of grit bins. The existing bins cover areas of high footfall to public amenities such as the school and village hall. Councillors were concerned about creating a precedence of providing grit bins for all parts of the Parish which could be costly.   

Street lighting - An additional light has been installed on the A19 by the business park to assist bus-stop users. At the time of writing this is awaiting Northern Powergrid to finish the supply connection. Thank you to the local residents for trimming of the adjacent tree/bushes to allow the light to be more effective.

Minerals and waste - The Council continues to monitor the situation with regard to the proposed waste sorting plant at Stillingfleet, and proposed quarry west of the A19. At the time of writing there has been no significant change on either proposal.

Vacancies - We currently have two vacancies for Parish Councillors.  This is a good opportunity to represent residents and have your input into where the Parish Council focuses its efforts and how it spends its budget. If you might be interested, and would like to learn more about the role, you’re welcome to chat to existing Councillors or the Chair (details below).  

Parish Council meeting dates: No ordinary meeting in March - a brief Finance & Admin meeting will be held instead. Future ordinary meetings: Monday 9th April, 14th May, 4th June, 2nd July. All meetings at 7.30pm at Escrick & Deighton Club. Public welcome.

Community Transport service

published on 6th Feb 2018

As you may be aware, Selby District AVS has been running a Community Transport service for many years. There are two dimensions to this service; a volunteer car driver scheme and a minibus hire scheme.

We are keen to hear from existing and potential car and minibus hire scheme clients and welcome any feedback you have so that we can continually improve and develop our service.

The questionnaire will take less than 5 minutes and can either be completed online or you can complete the attached and return by email to

Parish Magazine update - February 2018

published on 1st Feb 2018

The following appeared in February's Parish Magazine:

Escrick Parish Council update

Pavements - The Parish Council has made representations to both North Yorkshire County Council (responsible for maintenance) and Selby District Council (responsible for street cleaning) about the condition of pavements in the village. NYCC has evaluated the feedback, and where appropriate repairs have been carried out or scheduled. SDC are currently considering options for addressing the issues raised.

Grit bins - A reminder that there are four grit bins in Escrick. These are for community spirited residents to use to spread grit on pavements/junctions in icy weather. The Parish Council provides the grit, but doesn’t provide a grit spreading service. Please do feel free to grab an old plant pot and spread grit on the pavement, or problematic patches of road. The grit is not for use on private paths and driveways - you can buy grit from DIY stores. More details see

Dog fouling - A reminder that Selby District Council can levy fines of up to £1000 on those responsible for dog fouling. If you know who is responsible please report incidents promptly and directly. See for more details.

Beacon of lights commemoration: Escrick is considering taking park in the Beacons of Light Tribute on 11th November to mark 100 years of remembrance. This is likely to consist of a brief gathering and lighting of a beacon. We would like to gauge the level of interest in attending, please let any Parish Councillor know if you would be interested in attending. More details:

Street lighting - An additional light has been ordered for the A19 by the business park to assist bus-stop users. This is due to be installed in late January/early February.

Oak trees - As many residents have noticed, it was sadly necessary for NYCC to remove the two oak trees on Wenlock Drive. We recognise that these old trees were far older that Wenlock Drive itself, but unfortunately both were in bad condition, suffering honey fungus and hollowing of the trunk and roots. This had resulted in at least two instances where substantial branches fell, damaging a car and putting pedestrians at risk. The tree surgeon removing the trees confirmed that the diagnosis was correct, and the hollow trunks were very evident. NYCC will remove the stumps and reinstate the grass verge in its place.

Defibrillator volunteer - The village has a public access defibrillator located on the front wall of the club. This is for anyone to use in the case of a cardiac emergency. We are looking for a volunteer to undertake the weekly check of the defibrillator (very easy, it involves little more than checking that the ‘ok’ icon is illuminated).  It would be convenient for someone that regularly attends playgroup or the tea-shop to do on their way past. Please contact the chair if you are willing to help.

Neighbourhood Development Plan - the Parish Council is about to appoint a project manager/consultant to assist with the development of the NHDP, which is expected to take around 24 months. The role will be funded by grant funding.

Vacancy - We currently have a vacancy for a Parish Councillor.  This is a good opportunity to represent residents and have your input into where the Parish Council focuses its efforts and how it spends its budget. If you might be interested, and would like to learn more about the role, you’re welcome to chat to existing Councillors or the Chair (details below).

Parish Council meeting dates: Monday 5th February, 5th March, 9th April, 14th May. All meetings at 7.30pm at Escrick & Deighton Club. Public welcome.
