Keeping Ferriby Tidy
Thank you to all those who took part in the recent community day, Freshen Up Ferriby. Teams of individuals litter picked, gardened and painted a bus shelter. Thanks particularly to the Ferriby Cubs and Scouts who litter picked in and around Long Plantation in pouring rain and to the students of South Hunsley School who provided the brilliant art work in the bus shelter near the Co Op. Take time to visit the Woodland Walk on Riverside Walkway to see the work done by our Lifestylers. The next project will be the bus shelter opposite Tithe Farm, so look out for that in coming weeks. There is nothing to stop individuals or groups that have spotted an issue from doing something about it – just have a word with our Clerk for guidance.

If you have any concerns about litter of any sort, including dog poo, over flowing bins, how to report litter or litter droppers, you might find the following ERYC website section useful.

We know many of you get concerned about litter on the A63 and that can be reported using the above link. You can report vehicles shedding litter if you have the vehicle registration number. Here are some interesting statistics about litter on the A63

Commuted Sums
The recent development of Wilson Close has generated a cash fund, known as a commuted sum, to be spent on recreational, play and sports activities within the village. Funds are available in two separate strands – for children and for older teenagers and adults. The Parish Council would like to hear from any relevant group that is not for profit, has a bank account and a constitution, and which promotes community recreation, play or sports activities that are open to all members of the public at a realistic cost.

Melton Fields
awaiting Court of Appeal

The decision of the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government to refuse the planning appeal of St Modwen Properties for Melton Fields was heard in the Court of Appeal in June We await the court's verdict.

St Modwen submitted four grounds of objection and all have been rejected by the High Court. The full judgemental can be viewed on Melton Fields Information Page The proposal to build houses on Melton Fields has now been REJECTED by:
