York Potash - information regarding impact of operations during construction phase re works planned at Ladycross Plantation, Egton.

Sirius Minerals have published extracts from their Environmental Impact Report in answer to queries put by Glaisdale Parish Council in which concerns were raised regarding how the proposed operations at Ladycross during the construction phase might impact upon the local community.

Restoration of public toilet facilities in Glaisdale village.

As many of you will know the only public toilet facility in Glaisdale was closed by Northern Rail (NR), the owners, late last year when Scarborough Borough Council (SBC) declined to renew the lease held by them. Since then discussions have been ongoing between SBC, GPC and NR to try to resolve the issue by whatever means and to restore the facility as soon as possible.
This is a complex issue with ongoing implications for both the council and the community, and one which will involve significant committment and expense from the community and we are currently examining what measures are possible and what can be justified in orderto restore this provision. It may be that the council will ask for a mandate from the parish to incur the necessary costs involved on your behalf - after all, it is you who will need to fund it via your council tax!
** Please respond to any canvassing that the PC may decide to initiate to enable us to deliver the best outcome.**

** - January 2015 - This matter is no longer being pursued by the parish council. After full examination of the circumstances and likely costs to adopting this facility at Glaisdale members decided that it was neither practical nor affordable in the short term. Northern Rail have been informed of our withdrawal from interest in the building. **

New Housing Needs Survey for Glaisdale Parish !!

At the April meeting of the council members agreed that there should be a new Housing Needs Survey undertaken to quantify a perceived need for affordable housing in the Lealholm area of the parish. The parish council, in conjunction with Scarborough Borough Council, will be conducting this new survey over the coming weeks and it will hopefully lead to the provision of a new affordable housing development at Lealholm in the next few years.

20/06/2014 : The Housing Needs Survey documents are now being distributed to homes throughout the parish. Any individual who may be feel that they could qualify for such housing is urged to complete and return the survey form in the pre-paid envelope as soon as possible. It would also be helpful if even those not currently interested or envisaging a need in the near future could return the forms, marked with a comment that 'they are not presently looking for any such accommodation' This will help to identify those without any interest and those who just have not yet returned the form, for whatever reason.
