Reports of tampering with post

published on 14th Aug 2019

We have received reports from Riccall that some residents with external mail boxes believe that items of mail have been taken from the mail boxes. These items of post have then used to apply for multiple credit cards.

Residents with external mailboxes are asked to be vigilant, particularly if they think that letters such as bills or bank statements might be missing.

It is believed that the suspect may pretend to be delivering leaflets. Residents are asked to be on the lookout for suspicious behaviour around mail boxes.

Fudge is a lovely 15 year old wire-haired Jack Russell terrier who is madly missed by owner Gilly after he went walkabout on June 26th in Wheldrake near York. He's very deaf, doesn't take kindly to other dogs and is mistrustful of small children. But he is Gilly's much-loved constant companion and we have to find him. Share like mad please! He has been seen in Escrick in the woods near the playground.

Carr Lane footpath resurfacing

published on 21st Jun 2019 (updated on 28th Jun 2019)

North Yorkshire County Council will be undertaking pavement resurfacing on Carr Lane. 

The works are currently programmed to commence on 25th  June 2019 and complete within 90 working days.

The work is part of an extensive programme and as a consequence it is possible that some adjustment to this start date or the duration of the works may be necessary should unforeseen circumstances such as significant weather events or emergencies on the highway network arise.  Advance warning signs will be placed on both sides of the closure points indicating when operations are due to commence.

The works will be carried out between the hours of 07:30 – 17:30. This may inevitably restrict vehicular access to properties directly affected but our contractors will try to assist you where possible during the working day. Please be advised there may be extended periods when access will just not be possible due to the nature of the works and physical constraints of the site. 

NYCC request your assistance in the following ways:- 

Please contact North Yorkshire County Council Customer Resolution Centre on 01609 780780 to identify any special access needs you may have during the work period;

Cooperate and comply with any instructions issued by the traffic management operatives and take extra care whilst within the works area.

NYCC would like to take this opportunity to apologise for any disruption that these works may cause and would again request your cooperation to help ensure an efficiently and safely executed project.

Hedges & pavements - friendly reminder

published on 8th Jun 2019

At this time of year every year the Parish Council starts to receive complaints about hedges, trees and other foliage obstructing pavements, street lights, or signs – or just generally being untidy.

Thank you to the vast majority of residents who help keep the Parish looking smart, and keep the roads and pavements unobstructed.  Can we give a gentle reminder to the small number that might need a reminder.

The legal position:

  • The owner or occupier of a property has a legal responsibility (Highway Act 1980, s154) to ensure that the 'public highway' adjacent to their property is not obstructed by vegetation from their property. Local Authorities (in our case North Yorkshire County Council) also have a legal duty to ensure that public highways and street lights are unobstructed, and hence to act upon complaints about any such obstruction.
  • As a guide, hedges/trees should be no lower than 7ft 6" over a pavement, and no lower than 17ft over a road. 
  • Trees should not obstruct street lighting. This is usually interpreted that the light should be visible and effective at the mid-point to the next light, or 20m away where there is not a continuous system of lighting.
  • A 'public highway' means any verge, footway, carriageway, bridleway or footpath that is maintained at public expense and over which the public has a right of way. 

If you are concerned, in the first instance we usually suggest a friendly reminder to the resident concerned – as most incidents are due to oversight rather than ill intent.

If the matter is not resolved, you can report obstructions to roads and pavements on the North Yorkshire County Council website: https://myaccount.northyorks.gov.uk/vegetation

(The responsibility for cutting hedges along the various permissive footpaths, shared driveways, and other public space in the village is more complex, and usually dealt with the rental / leasehold agreements).
