60760614            Ward Councillors Reports (For Information Only)

Cllr T Galbriath:

Three meetings with ERYC Beverley have been cancelled, including planning due to lack of  items referred to the committee.

ERYC have won a wind farm application rejection appeal, the Planning inspector wanted to uphold the appeal but was overturned by secretary of state, this application was near Burton Agnes Hall and was recommended refusal due to the location of the grade 1 listed building and gardens.  There are already wind farms around, and the landscape would become a wind turbine landscape.  The government did say would take more notice of local opinions on Wind Farm applications and the ERYC are waiting with interest with regards to a sensitive application looking over the Wolds, this will be seen for miles.  The outcome of this application may have implications on the Ellerker Wind Farm Proposals.

The Overview and Scrutiny Committee visited  Goole Hospital, this was a clean hospital, but with an expensive carpark.  It was indicted that the new chief executive has displayed the need to preserve Community Hospitals.  The waiting time in the Minor Injury Unit was around 45 minutes; much lower the Hull Royal Infirmary.  The new hospital in Beverley has a Minor Injury Unit which closes at 5:00p.m, this also has lower waiting times.

Cllr Smith:

No comments to report
