4.       Matters Arising Therefrom


·         Environment Agency-presentation by Tom Cochrane, Project Manager Paull Holme Strays, and Andrew Gibson- Yorkshire Wildlife Trust. There was much discussion regarding Cllr Hulme not being invited/involved in this project-or in some of the decision -making process. Cllr Hulme informed that he has always attended any EA meetings, wherever they were held in the country, and was very disappointed to have been omitted. Both Tom Cochrane and Andrew Gibson apologised, and stated it was not a deliberate error. The fact that the steps and bridge will not be replaced was discussed at length, and it was requested that this was reviewed by EA/YWT, as they were much used previously, and as a vantage/viewing area. TC felt this would not be possible, nor would building a viewing platform, but he would take it back for discussion. It was stated to TC/AG that the new routes would be a magnet for anti-social behaviours-especially as it will provide a circuit for motor bikes. AG explained about worm counts/species of birds etc, he will provide figures. Cllr Hulme stated that this has been a closed site, with no access for councillors—TC offered a site visit for interested parties, he will liaise dates with Cllr Hulme. AG stated he is happy to be contacted, but any anti-social behaviours need to be called in directly to the police.

·         Community Recreation Area-now the responsibility of the Parish Council, the Recreation Team are dissolving. Quotes for signage provided- no decision made-defer to September meeting.

·         No Camping signs for the carpark-Ap at NPS has agreed that PPC can put signs up—Clerk to speak to AP—who will enforce?

·         Shipyard- Cllr Steel updated that ER Enforcement Agency have visited the site-as it is B2 manufacturing there are no concerns. Residents expressed concern s that road is blocked for sometimes up to an hour when a wagon is being loaded in Main Street. Concerns were raised regarding bits of caravan roof and materials being blown off site, the possibility of movement of the caravans in high winds and floods.
