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.

Escrick Parish Council - July update

published on 1st Jul 2019

The following update appears in July's edition of the Parish Magazine

Escrick Parish Council

Highways: 
A19/Skipwith Road junction scheme: Thank you to everyone who took part in the consultation. By the time this edition of the Parish Magazine arrives through your letterbox we should know the outcome of the consultation, and the Parish Council is expected to decide at July’s meeting whether or not to apply to the Secretary of State for authority to borrow the funds required.  

Additional street lighting: As resolved at March’s meeting, two additional street lights have been installed on Main St to address concerns from residents about the dark spots. However, the Parish Council has received a complaint from some residents of Main St seeking the removal. The complainants believe that the lighting is unnecessary; inconsistent with the area’s Conservation Area status; and that the Council had not adequately consulted residents of the village on the topic. At the time of writing the complaint remains unresolved.

Hedges, bushes and other foliage: It is that time of year again when the greenery of our village is growing rapidly, and we have started to received the annual complaints about foliage obstructing pavements.  Please can residents ensure that foliage outside their property does not obstruct pavements. Can householders located at junctions be particularly mindful of any hedges that might obstruct visibility from the junction.

Planning: 
Former North Selby mine site: At the time of writing the planning authorities (City of York and Selby District) are still considering the application. There has been additional consultation on the highways impact of the proposed development.

Former Stillingfleet Mine site: We have been advised that planning officers will be recommending that the application for a waste sorting site is declined.

Escrick brickworks tip variation: At the time of writing there is no further update on the application to extend the volume of waste to be deposited at the site.

Clay extraction west of business park: A planning application for clay extraction is expected shortly.


Locality funding:
County Cllr Musgrave has a small locality budget to fund community initiatives within his ward. Eligible schemes are typically £500 - £2000 in size and of community benefit. Any local groups that have initiatives that may benefit from funding are encouraged to contact either the Parish Council or Cllr Musgrave directly.

Speeding / traffic noise:
North Yorkshire County Council have established a new scheme whereby Parish Councils can purchase portable ‘vehicle activated speed signs’ (the signs that alert when a vehicle is over the speed limit).  The signs are designed to be used on a part-time basis across a number of different locations.  The Parish Council has resolved to request a site visit from NYCC to evaluate potential locations.

The Parish Council has also been pursuing a number of avenue to encourage motorbikes to take alternative routes avoiding the village, and is to approach NYCC about potential signage on the approach to the village.
 
Parish Council meeting dates:  1st July, 2nd September, 7th October, 4th November, 2nd December. All meetings at 7.30pm at Escrick & Deighton Club. Public welcome. Contact:  Chair (Richard Rowson), chair@escrick.org; Clerk (Helen Guest), clerk@escrick.org; Website: escrick.org


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).

Escrick Parish Council - June update

published on 31st May 2019 (updated on 22nd Jun 2019)

Escrick Parish Council - June update

May’s Parish Council meeting happened after June’s Parish Magazine went to press, so this month’s update is online only.

Council:

Eight candidates stood for election in May’s Parish Council election. As there are up to 11 vacancies, all candidates were elected uncontested. 

Cllr Nigel Bartle joins the Parish Council for the first time, and Cllrs Lilian Coulson, Sara Cunningham, Michael Luscombe, Kevin Moran, John Reader, Tudor Rees and Richard Rowson are elected for another term. Cllr Rowson was reappointed as Chair.  There remain three vacancies for any residents interested in joining the Council. Cllr Mervin Casling stood down prior to the election. 

May’s elections also saw the election of Cllr Neil Reader as the new District Councillor for Escrick ward of Selby District Council.

We look forward to working with Neil, and would like to thank Liz Casling for her numerous contributions over the past 20 years as Councillor at County, District and Parish Councils. 

Highways: 

A19/Skipwith Road junction scheme: The Parish Council resolved to go ahead with a public consultation regarding whether the Council should borrow the funds, and increase the precept to cover the associated repayments, to fund pedestrian crossings and traffic lights at the A19/Skipwith Road junction. Residents of the Parish should visit escrick.org/a19-consultation/ for details and to take part in the consultation.

Street lighting: The Parish Council has received a complaint from some residents of Main St seeking the removal of additional street lighting recently installed on behalf of the Parish Council. The complainants believe that the lighting is unnecessary; inconsistent with the area’s Conservation Area status; and that the Council had not adequately consulted residents of the village on the topic. In the first instance the Council is to obtain further guidance from Selby District Council as the planning authority responsible for the Conservation Area.

Planning: 

Former North Selby mine site: At the time of writing the planning authorities (City of York and Selby District) are still considering the application. There has been additional consultation on the highways impact of the proposed development.

Former Stillingfleet Mine site: We have been advised that planning officers will be recommending that the application for a waste sorting site is declined.

Parish Council meeting dates:  3rd June, 1st July, 2nd September, 7th October, 4th November, 2nd December. All meetings at 7.30pm at Escrick & Deighton Club. Public welcome.
