Message from the local Policing Team
We want to make you aware of an increase in crime in December mainly in the Anlaby area, but some incidents in the Kirk Ella area. We are predominately suffering with shed, and garage burglaries. 1 male was arrested on Tower view in Anlaby. Some of the offences are happening during the day, so if you can please pass the message around to remain vigilant and report anything suspicious,

Traffic on the A164
A new roundabout is set to be built on one of the region's busiest roads. The £4.2m scheme will see an improved junction lay-out on the A164 between Kirk Ella and Swanland - see South Hunsley Ward Councillor's page for more details.

Dog Fouling
A general reminder to all dog walkers that they have to clean up after their dog, whatever the weather or leaf or snow cover. The same applies to the hours of darkness - you need a torch. There are plenty of litter bins throughout the Parish, so please pick it up. When the children are encouraged to walk to school it is only fair that dog mess is picked up. East Riding of Yorkshire Council has issued 2 Fixed Penalty Notices in Kirk Ella for failure to clear up after a dog has fouled.

If any resident can identify a dog walker who does not clean up, with the time and place, they should report it to ERYC, and the dog warden will try to visit the area. We have some stickers and will be affixing these to the lamp posts around Pine. Meadows. If any resident knows of other areas where more stickers are needed, please let us know. When the pavement is dry, we will use the Parish Council stencil and spray paint but it is not suitable in wet and cold weather. Liz and Tom

A Message from your Chairman - July 2018

It is now our summer break but there will always be some councillors at home who you can contact if you need advice. We have been quite busy the last few months. No doubt you have noticed that our two extra notice boards are now in place and in use. This means we now have five notice boards around the two villages to display our minutes of our meetings and notices about any forthcoming events. No doubt we will need a sixth board somewhere near West Hill (which is within Kirk Ella boundary) once the building of the houses is completed.

The War Memorial planning application has been granted for it to be erected on East Riding land at the corner of Elveley Drive and West Ella Road. We are all hoping that it will be completed for Remembrance Day, the anniversary of the ending of World War I, as that was our original aim.

Councillor John Bailey and I together with Ward Councillors Shaun Horton and Gary McMaster attended the public consultation meeting re. the proposed new development of 260 new homes on Great Gutter Lane West. Councillor John Bailey wrote a critical letter pointing out several difficulties and problems with the proposals. No actual plans have been submitted yet.

We also have nothing further to report on the possible move of the Willerby Doctors from Main Street Willerby. This of course will be a decision made by the NHS East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group and not one the E.R.Y.C. can control.

Councillor Elizabeth Robinson is thorough in her monitoring of our environment and for a long time she has been most concerned about the overgrown, untidy piece of land close to the old electricity sub-station on West Ella Road. She has organised for the weeds to be removed, the ivy to be cut and the whole area generally tidied up. She is also impressed with the tree planting Woodland Trust and hopes that more trees can be planted in our villages this autumn.

Lastly, we are delighted to announce that we have a new councillor, Mrs. Nicola McMaster who has joined the Parish Council. We advertised on our parish notice boards and website and Nicola was an applicant. She was a practicing lawyer for ten years and worked in the legal industry for sixteen years in total. She enjoys helping people wherever she can and I feel sure she will be a great asset to our team.
