Electric Vehicle Charging Point consulation

We want your views about installing EVCs on one or two sites in the village; the Village Hall car park and the canalside car park adjacent to the electricity pole. We are looking at different funding options which could enable either the village or a commercial/charitable enterprise to own and maintain the EVCs.
Users will pay for the electricity consumed. We intend that the majority of customers will be short term visitors and residents without off road parking.
Both sites are feasible.
Currently, the Village Hall has capacity for twin 7kw chargers.
At the canal site, Northern Powergrid will make a 3 phase connection to the
existing overhead line giving a capacity of twin 22kw chargers.

Avian Flu Update

The Chief Veterinary Officers for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have agreed to bring in new measures to help protect poultry and captive birds. The new housing measures will come into force across the UK from 00:01 on Monday 29 November 2021 to protect poultry and captive birds from avian influenza following a number of confirmed cases across Great Britain in recent weeks. See the AIPZ section.

The declaration for the second premises near Leeming Bar, Hambleton, North Yorkshire has been amended and the map reference and map have been updated

Further testing has confirmed that the avian influenza strain in birds at the following premises as highly pathogenic (HPAI H5N1):

  • second premises near Thirsk, Hambleton, North Yorkshire
  • second premises near Leeming Bar, Hambleton, North Yorkshire
  • premises near Thirsk, Hambleton, North Yorkshire

Following confirmation of the pathogenicity, the Temporary Control Zones have been revoked and replaced by 3km Protection Zone and 10km Surveillance Zone around each of the premises.

For details of the cases and the measures that apply in the disease control zones in England, see the avian influenza: cases and disease control zones in England guidance. You can also find out about licences for movements from disease control zones in force.

Goodbyes and welcomes

The Parish Council was saddened to receive the resignation of Cllr William Barron and Cllr Sam Berry and thank them for all they have done to help the Parish Council on projects which have benefitted the village.

Following advertising the vacancies the Parish Council was able to co-opt two new Councillors, Edward Coulson and Andrew Binns who we are sure will be a great asset to the Parish Council and the village.
