community fund payment.
Moto Hospitality Ltd have
proposed a community fund payment of £20,000 to be split between Yealand Conyers
and Redmayne Parish Councils and there will be an ongoing £1,000 per year which
will go into the Moto in the Community Trust. Moto Hospitality are keen for the
money to support projects that:
Encourage renewable energy use,
help develop more sustainable communities and enhance quality of life, support
local conservation and environmental initiatives.
Dawn Hancock said that that
maybe the £10,000 could be put towards the cost of installing superfast
broadband to the village.
Andy Denton Neighbourhood Watch
Liaison Officer North Division came to speak with the Cllr’s about the
neighbourhood watch scheme. He explained that the scheme was introduced to the
UK in the early eighties and it can reduce people’s fear of crime and creates a
solid link between communities and the police and both parties are able to share
information with each other but it has to be community lead for it to succeed.
Mr Denton said he had a pack which could be given to parishioners with
information regarding the scheme. It would require someone to be the point of
interest and take charge and would also require the forming of a small
committee. The scheme can operate with as few as ten houses up to a full
community depending on the interest. The Parish Council decided for this
information to be put in the next village newsletter and the Council would
arrange a meeting for people to find out more about the scheme.
the meeting held on 10th September 2013.
The minutes were approved and
signed by the Vice Chair Cllr Panton.
arising from the previous minutes
There are still issues regarding
the hedgerow and vegetation at the side of the road though some of the trees
have now been cut back. Clerk to ring Highways Department and the Cllr’s were
asking if notices to the parishioners have ever been served. Dawn Hancock is
going to speak with the Head of Highways regarding this.
The Cllr’s enquired as to the
positioning of the 30 mph sign on Dykes Lane and whether it could be moved to
the bottom of the lane by the A6 as it is obscured by the hedges and long grass.
This is not possible as it depends on the number of properties .There aren’t
enough for an application to be approved.
Vegetation and overhanging trees
on Yealand and Peter Road
The trees on Yealand Road have
been cut back but the vegetation still needs to be done. Vice Chair and Dawn
Hancock were going to meet and discuss how this work could be done.
Quote for wooden planter
The planter by the pump on
Yealand Road has started to rot and Mr Sharples has supplied a quote for £80 to
build a new one and the Cllrs approved this.
The Clerk wrote to Robinsons
Brewery re the scaffolding still being up after more than 2 years, the danger it
posed and the eyesore it created. Robinsons replied to say that they were aware
of how long the scaffolding had been up and it is a priority for the work to be
done on the building. This was put down on the agenda for January 2014 meeting
for further discussion.

Interest on the deposit account
held with Santander is negligible., Cllrs were in agreement for the Chair and
Vice Chair to be signatories. Once this has been approved, the Deposit Account
will be closed.
PC Marsh spoke to say that the
site by Yealand C of E School has been approved for Speed Warning signs ,which
will be operational during school hours .This is completely separate to the SPID
cameras for the village. PC Marsh has been successful in obtaining funding for
two SPID devices. This means that the estimated cost to the parishes that have
been approached is £550 and the annual estimated cost is£100 - £150. Assuming
that all 3 parishes agree to the scheme this works out at an estimated initial
cost of £183 and an estimated annual cost of £33- £50 per parish council.
SPiDs can only be put up at
certain points that have been risk assessed. There are 2 devices to share
between Warton, Yealand Redmayne and Conyers and sites need to be identified
between villages as to where to site the SPiD’s. There would need to be an
agreement between councils as to how long each parish uses them. It would also
require 1 person to be the co-ordinator for all 3 parishes who would be able to
put up and take down the SPiD. The Cllr’s were concerned about where to site the
signs and finding a person who’s trained to put up and take down the SPiD’s.
The Cllr’s were not in favour as they felt there were too many logistical
problems .They asked for the Clerk to email PC Marsh to say that after
discussion the Cllr’s don’t feel there’s enough of a real need to participate in

Lancashire County Council
Property Group has been appointed by the Governors of Yealand C of E School to
act as their property consultant to apply for planning permission to build a new
store and covered seating area. The new store will be situated on land that is
owned by Yealand Parish Council which is currently leased by the school. Cllr’s
were all in agreement about the proposed planning, their only concerns being
that occasionally the school field and MUGA can flood, the Clerk is to email
Sion Thomas, district surveyor with the Cllrs concerns.
