The minutes of the meeting held on Wednesday 4th May 2017 were approved.
2. Chairman’s Review of the Year 2017/2018
Travellers – 2017
The procedures for 2017 had been a success, with only a very minor amount of trouble which was quickly resolved.
The Chairman wished to express this thanks to Karen Prudden for her excellent work looking after the cemetery. He also Thanked Tim Prudden for his work at the cemetery.
The project to extend the cemetery is underway and the planning for the new homes behind the Rose and Crown has been approved subject to a few final points.
A thank you to Paul and Matthew Metcalfe for the work they do for the village.
Big Dig – Bainbridge village green
Test pitting is now completed on the village green and several gardens around the village.
No official feedback has been received as Rebecca Cadbury-Simmons has now left the YDPNA.
A thank you to Gill for keeping us on the correct path.
A thank you to Roger for his handy work.
Cllr Darren Percival, making a slow recovery, we wish Darren and his family all the best in the world.
3. Arrangements for Travellers – 2018
Yvonne Peacock had a meeting with Inspector Gee. The following actions decided: –
· The police will ensure the Appleby.org website is up to date with regards the
arrangements for the opening/closing of the green.
· The police will ensure that the usual ‘bow top parking only’ signs are delivered to the Tea Shop.
· The police will ensure that Travellers gathering in location such as Masham, Middleham, and Leyburn are aware of the Bainbridge green arrangements.
· Yvonne will liaise with RDC (Amanda Dyson) to ensure that Street Scene will commit to twice daily rubbish collections if required – rather than leave bagged up rubbish overnight which gets broken into by birds and animals causing a mess of airborne rubbish blowing all over the place.
The permitted access to the village green will be Friday 1st June to 5th June. There will be no
fence for 2018 as last year.
4. Matters arising from the minutes of the 2018 meeting and other issue of concern to the Residents
Laygate House – resident’s at the property have up to 5 cars taking up all the village hall car parking spaces.
Residents have expressed concern over the amount of dog faeces left on the village green by dog walkers. The council are considering requesting a visit from the Richmondshire Dog warden.
5. Date of the next meeting
It was confirmed that the next Residents meeting would take place on Wednesday 2nd May 2018 (subject to change as there will local elections).
Meeting closed 6.55pm
