Minutes of the last meeting The minutes of the last meeting, held on 22 nd July 2021 were agreed to be a correct record, and these were signed by the Chair. 4. Matters Arising i) Cattle grid at Gunnerside. It was noting that no work has yet been done to the cattle grid at Gunnerside and the clerk will contact Highways again regarding this. ii) Pothole at Strands. The clerk has contacted Highways regarding this pothole, who have advised that it does not meet the criteria for repair. It was agreed that the clerk would contact Highways again as councilors feel that this does need some work as it has already caused damage to a resident’s vehicle and it is not noticeable when full of water. iii) Trees below Robin Gate. Work has taken place to trim these back. iv) The clerk was asked to send the information about the Queen’s Jubilee Beacon to the secretary of Gunnerside Village Hall and also to contact Susan Calvert at Low Row Institute to see what can be organised for this occasion. v) It was noted that a recycling bin has been installed in Gunnerside in recent weeks however it is being used by visitors to leave their recycling rather than them using the regular fortnightly collections for this, which is causing the bin to be full and additional items left outside the bin. The clerk/Councillor McCartney to contact RDC regarding this. 5. Finance i) Invoice from NYCC for Speed Survey and Order to pay: An order to pay and a cheque for the Speed Survey of £132.00 were signed. The results of the Speed survey were discussed, and although it was felt there were some vehicles travelling faster than they should be, councilors agreed that the cost of a Vehicle Activated sign is too high. It was therefore agreed not to go ahead with the Temporary Vehicle Activation sign at this time. 6. Highways The clerk was asked to contact Highways regarding the cattle grid at Gunnerside, and regarding the pothole at Strands. 7. Richmondshire District Council a) Purchase of additional litter bins The council noted receipt of a letter from Richmondshire District Council advising Parish Councils that they are now allowed to purchase additional litter bins from their own funds which will then be deployed, maintained and emptied by RDC. As a litter bin has been sited in Gunnerside in recent weeks, it was agreed that another bin was not needed at the moment. A request has also been received from a resident of Low Row, requesting that a litter bin be sited in the village. This was discussed by councillors, however they unanimously agreed that a litter bin in Low Row was not required at the current time. 8. NYCC 9.
