Since advertising for a new litter picker, we had several candidates interested in becoming the next Litter Picker in Thorpe Willoughby. Although only a 6-hour role per week, this vital role helps maintain the hard work all residents do to minimise littering across our village.
The candidates did not make the selection process easy, as they were all outstanding, however after a lot of careful consideration Allan Clarke has been awarded the role.
Planning Application 2020/0838/FULM
For 88 houses on old pig station Field lane
This application is for an amendment to current planning permission for 70 houses already granted on appeal. SDC planning committee rejected the original application but the developers appealed and it was passed.
The site is within the parish of Hambleton although it’s postcode is Thorpe Willoughby. This means that Hambleton PC will get the CIL monies and the yearly precept for any housing built. Thorpe
Willoughby and all its facilities on the other hand will be used by the new residents.
Whilst this may be good for the shops etc. in the village to become more viable businesses it will adversely affect the amenities of the area. 88 houses may have as many as 170 cars and may entail
the school having to support another 22 primary school children.
The extra vehicles on Field lane and Fox lane will be very heavy especially at peak times.
The only planning objection would be loss of amenities for Thorpe Willoughby. It is past the stage where we can stop development on this site.
Be assured that your Parish council is doing what it can to ameliorate the situation.
The Parish Council have now been authorised by NYCC Highways to allow the start of moving 2 Vehicle Activated Speed Signs(VAS) to various locations within the village as agreed by NYCC on a rotation basis. This is due to commence shortly.
NYCC also have stated that no other traffic calming measures are required in the village at this time.
There have been a number of requests from landowners for the County Council to close public rights of way because of the risk of transmitting Coronavirus. Please use the below link to read the Briefing note published by the County Council regarding this….
