GALE COMMON ACTION GROUP NEWS UPDATE JULY 2021

 

Gale Common Ash Extraction
Planning Decision NY/2019/0091/ENV
North Yorkshire County Council
November 2020

 

Four North Yorkshire parish councils, Cridling Stubbs, Heck, Whitley & Womersley, have come together to seek to challenge this decision by NYCC planning committee. We four councils, along with many local residents, numerous other bodies and our MP Nigel Adams, raised serious, well argued objections to the proposals by EPUKI about the unprecedented long term environmental, health, pollution and safety impacts on the Greenbelt and our communities. All local concerns, along with our pleas for greener, more sustainable extraction and transport options were rejected by NYCC planning. We believe the process and decision making was fundamentally flawed and are looking to legally challenge this decision by Judicial Review. That process has now begun. The Action Group, GCAG, will be the hub for information, awareness and fundraising.

 

If we want our voice to be heard we need to ACT!

 

Assist! contact the group if you want to help our cause in any way.

 

Contribute! we are in a legal fight which may well go to the High Court. We need to raise serious funds to challenge NYCC and EPUKI.

 

Talk! we need to hear your views. Comment on our FB page or post a video or image of how you feel about your area and the Greenbelt being affected in this way. Pollution, road safety, noise, 266 extra HGV traffic movements along Whitefield Lane and the A19 every working day…
Contact any of the four parish councils or their councillors through the normal channels

Whitley Daffodil Park

 

The Parish Council are looking into improvements we can make to the Daffodil Park.

 

We are starting with painting all the playground equipment, which we hope will start soon, and we have employed a new contractor to cut the grass which should be done (subject to the weather) every 2 weeks from March to November.
Over the last couple of years we have had help to maintain the paths and the shrubbery areas but this might not be possible due to social distancing.
If you would like to volunteer to help with jobs around the park please get in touch.
And if you have any ideas we would love to hear from you, we are particularly keen to receive ideas from children and young people.
