Parish Magazine Update - October 2021
Escrick Parish Council Update
Bus shelter: By the time this is published, bins should have been installed at the new bus stops. Parish Councillors also agreed to fund a southbound bus shelter (with perch bench) and improved street lighting on the route to the bus stops. City of York Council are still pursuing the inclusion of the bus stops within the City of York fares zone.
Highways: Dropped kerbs have been ordered for various junctions in the village to ease movement for wheelchair users amongst others, but have been delayed due to NYCC facing supply chain issues. Plans for a 20mph zone on Carr Lane, and ‘village gateway’ on Skipwith Road are still in progress. We have now received the design for the ‘village gateway’.
Maintenance: The Council has agreed to remove one of the birch trees from the Coronation Monument. This is due to its deteriorating condition and based on arborist advice. The yew will also be pruned to establish a more appropriate sized hedge, albeit it might look a bit bare whilst it regrows.
Councillors: We have two vacancies for Parish Councillors. Please contact the clerk or chair if you are interested in getting involved.
Parish Council meeting dates: 4th October, 1st November, and 6th December . All meetings at 7.30pm at Escrick and Deighton Club. Contact: Clerk (Sally Look), firstname.lastname@example.org, Chair (Richard Rowson), email@example.com; Website: escrick.org
