The February 2018 meeting of the Parish Council will be held in the meeting room at Tockwith Academy on 20 February at 7.30pm.
The Planning Application submitted by D Noble Ltd for 21 dwellings off Turnpike Lane Bickerton was considered by Councillors on 16 November 2018, when they confirmed their opposition to the application. An objection which covered all the various Planning Grounds raised by Councillors and local residents was approved by the Councillors present at the meeting held on 30 January 2018, with one abstention. The PC's objection was submitted to Harrogate Borough Council, as the PC's response to the invitation to consider the Planning Application. The Objection can be read here.
If you have experienced any difficulties when reading the Parish Council's website, this is probably being caused by the use of Microsoft's Windows 10 software. Using Google Chrome may solve the problem. Please however advise the Clerk (email@example.com) so that the web hosting company can be advised, when this occurs.

Many residents will know that the Parish Council now owns two Defibrillators, one for use in each Village. The defibrillators are housed in secure boxes, one in Bilton in Ainsty (newly installed in a heated cabinet) and the other at Jesmond Dene Main Street Bickerton. The boxes are locked and can be opened by anyone directed by the Ambulance Emergency Service to collect a defibrillator, in case of an emergency. There are trained 'first responders' in each Village who can be contacted by the Emergency Ambulance Service in the event that a 999 call is received.
