Pig Farm Plans and NPC Update

Planning Application for Pig Farm Down Cliffe Road

Back in 2017, despite Newbald Parish Council’s strong objections, East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) granted outline planning permission for the creation of a pig farm at the bottom of Cliffe Road.

Full planning permission is now being sought, which would allow work to start. If you want to have your say about this, you have until 13 June to submit your comments to East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Here is a link to the application on the planning portal, which provides you with full details.

Erection of 2 livestock buildings, 1 straw storage building with associated feed bins, hardstandings and access and siting of a temporary agricultural workers mobile home including associated infrastructure

The comments made by Newbald Parish Council are available to view here.

Just a reminder also, if you create an account on the planning portal, you can ask to be notified of planning applications that come up in the parish or in the immediate vicinity of your house. Given that ERYC no longer sends out notifications in the post to properties surrounding a proposed development, this is a very useful service.

Parish Newsletter

Newbald Parish Council is holding off publishing the next parish newsletter as it would like to be able to include details of upcoming events in the village. Obviously if this proves to be a really long way off into the future, this decision will be reviewed.

Newbald Parish Council

Although it is currently unable to hold physical meetings, Newbald Parish Council is continuing to work hard to further village objectives where Covid-19 allows. Current projects include:

  • Applying for a grant to conduct a feasibility study/consultation to see if the village could benefit from (and would like) a Community Renewable Energy Scheme
  • Making decisions about the latest applications to the Sober Hill Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund, which include a wide variety of projects that will benefit the village
  • Considering whether a “community dig” project could be an option to help those Newbald properties unable to secure superfast broadband from either KCOM or BT
  • Designing a new website (to meet new accessibility laws).

Further details about these and other matters will be published in the next newsletter and on the new website.
