Maltby Cricket Club

The Chairman introduced Mr. Barber the Chairman of Maltby Cricket Club, who had been invited to attend the meeting to give an update on progress with their grant applications for the proposed capital and equipment projects outlined to the Parish Council at their meeting in September 2006.

 

 

Chairman……………………………………….

                                                                                                                                    2 of 16                                                                                                                                               

Mr. Barber confirmed that the Cricket Club has been granted £10,000 from Awards for All which is earmarked for the all weather practice area project.  It was noted that this money has to be committed/used by the end of March 2007 otherwise it has to be returned to Awards for All.

The Club has now received notification from The Foundation for Sport & the Arts that their grant application has been declined, which is very disappointing.

Mr. Barber outlined the four key projects, in order of their importance, for which they are looking to fund, which are as follows:

 

Equipment Project                                                 Vat Incl          Total Cost     Funds

Reqd

 

Double Bay All Weather Practise Area                  24,675

Awards for All Grant                          -10,000        -12,750

Pavilion Alteration                                                     7,144

                                                                                  12,342              12,342

Entrance and Gates to Outfield                   

Estimated Cost                                                     e12,000              12,000            12,000

 

Mr. Barber stated that the Equipment Project is the most important of the four projects and given the fact that the Awards for All grant has to be spent by the end of March it is therefore high priority.

It was noted that last year the club catered for 110 juniors, the majority being from Ingleby Barwick, which they expect to increase to in the region of 150 by the end of this season.

There are also approximately 15/16 adults from Ingleby Barwick who use the facility.

The cricket club would be grateful for any contribution from the Parish Council towards the projects.

 

 

Chairman………………………………………

                                                                                                                                    3 of 16

It was noted that the club organised a summer festival which was very well attended with over 150 youngsters participating in the cricket tournament.

The club is currently looking to offer coaching to the local schools.

A general discussion took place on the existing security at the cricket ground/pavilion and also future measures to be implemented.

 

The Parish Council noted their support for the cricket club and the facilities provided and indicated that the possibility of them providing financial assistance would be considered when they set the budget for 2007/08 on 24th January 2007.

Mr. McLone and Mr. Small introduced themselves and outlined their role within the Enforcement Team.

It was noted that the change over from Community Wardens to Enforcement Officers within Stockton Borough itself has been very successful which is highlighted in the Performance Reports and the increased number of incidents dealt with.

Mr. Small gave a brief overview of the Enforcement Service which included statistics on the number of incidents attended, the vast majority being within the required timescales.  Response targets were discussed.

The proposal for Enforcement Officer as alternative to Ingleby Barwick Community Wardens was discussed.  A scheme tailored to meet the requirements of Ingleby Barwick in respect of both the service provided and financial constraints was outlined.

The importance of dedicated officers was acknowledged, as well as the need to promote the use of the cycles for easier and quicker access around the estate.

It was noted that changing to an Enforcement Service would be advantageous, giving access to a growing service and allowing flexibility to target particular problems.

It was confirmed that the Service could be adapted and altered as and when required.

It was noted that Enforcement Officers work on their own in other areas across the Borough.

S.B.C.’s Enforcement Service is respected as one of the best in the Country.

Mr. McLone and Mr. Small were thanked for their attendance and left the meeting

 

146. POLICING ISSUES, INGLEBY BARWICK.

 

The Chairman welcomed PC Kevin Leek, Community Police Officer for Ingleby Barwick East and PCSO Diane Sandhu.

It was noted that the police service is also undergoing changes in how the service is delivered, which will commence in April 2007.  Each Ward within the Borough will have a Community Police Officer plus a PCSO.

PC Leek is the officer dedicated to Ingleby Barwick East Ward which includes Maltby and Hilton and PC Stockley is the officer dedicated to Ingleby Barwick West Ward.

A general discussion took place on how the service would work including timescales to be met and response times.

The Police are hoping to get more premises which is welcomed.

The Clerk reported receipt of a copy of the letter received by S.B.C. from the landowner acknowledging that water is flowing on the footpath and carriageway from land in their ownership, albeit the cause appears to be from the construction of the ‘Gas Pressure Reduction Station’ owned by Independent Pipelines Limited.

It is apparent that there was insufficient drainage to both the sump and pipeline of the Gas Pressure Reduction Station when initially constructed and has obviously since silted up and is not allowing ground water to flow freely.  Although they are in the process of making contact with Independent Pipelines to discuss the situation, of which it would appear that they already had knowledge, they will in any event ensure that remedial works are completed at the earliest opportunity in order to alleviate the problem.

155. PLANNING APPLICATIONS.

 

Planning Schedule

The Clerk referred to the Planning Applications Schedule attached to the Agenda for this meeting, which states the comments made by Ingleby Barwick Parish Council in relation to the planning applications listed.

The Schedule indicates the current position of the planning applications, which have been informed by S.B.C.

 

(a) Planning Application No. 06/3535/FUL

Proposal: Extension of Existing Driving Range to Provide Clubroom and Changing Facilities.

Location: Ingleby Barwick Golf Academy, Lullingstone Crescent, Ingleby Barwick.

 

The Parish Council considered all of the information and plans provided in respect of planning application no. 06/3535/FUL.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk submit the following comments to S.B.C. in respect of the proposal:

 

The proposed clubhouse should be constructed using materials that blend in with the surrounding brick houses rather than the ‘tin shed’ like building of the driving range.

Any concerns raised by residents living in close proximity of the proposal should be given careful consideration.

If approved, it should be ensured that the building is well screened to reduce the impact of the proposal on the surrounding area and residential properties.

The public access roads to the development are narrow residential roads and therefore may need a 20 mph restriction placed on them.

A time limit must be agreed for closing the bar at night which is suitable for residents living in the vicinity.

 

Chairman……………………………………….

                                                                                                                                    11 of 16

 

(b) Planning Application No. 06/3562/FUL

Proposal: Substitution of House Type Designs on Plot Nos. 2-10 on Previously Approved Scheme Referenced 05/0911/REV Dated 4th July 2006.

Location: Cross Keys, Leven Bank Road, Yarm.

 

The Parish Council considered all of the information and plans provided in respect of planning application no. 06/3562/FUL.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk informs S.B.C. that the Parish Council has no comments to raise in respect of the proposal.

 

(c) Planning Application No. 06/3664/FUL

Proposal: Change of Use of Office/Storage/Tack Building to Dental Surgery (for NHS patients).

Location: The Vale, Low Lane, Yarm.

 

The Parish Council considered all of the information and plans provided in respect of planning application no. 06/3664/FUL.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk submit the following comments to S.B.C. in respect of the proposal:

 

The Parish Council has no concerns to raise in respect of the proposal, provided that Stockton Borough Council’s Highways Department are happy with the access off Low Lane.

 

(d) Planning Application No. 06/3752/OUT

Proposal: Outline Application for Mixed Use Development Comprising 50 No. Place Children’s Nursery, 75 No. Bed Old Peoples Home, 816 Square Metre Primary Care Trust Building Together with Associated Means of Access and Car Parking.

Location: Site North of Blair Avenue, Ingleby Barwick.

 

The Parish Council considered all of the information and plans provided in respect of planning application no. 06/3752/OUT.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk submit the following comments to S.B.C. in respect of the proposal:

 

There is no requirement in Ingleby Barwick for either a children’s nursery or an old people’s home as there is already adequate provision within the development.  This site should be used to provide facilities that are needed, such as additional secondary school provision.

 

Chairman…………………………………………

                                                                                                                                    12 of 16

 

It should also be considered that the previous successful application on this site included a ‘Community Building’ to be gifted by this developer, which is no longer proposed.

This proposal will undoubtedly generate more traffic adding to the already congested roads around the main centre of Ingleby Barwick at peak times, which is a reason to refuse this application. 

It is noted that access into the site is from Blair Avenue, which was the scene of a recent road traffic accident, justifiably elevating concerns on safety as the proposed development is adjacent to All Saints Secondary School and Myton Park Primary School. 

 

(e) Planning Application No. 06/3768/REV

Proposal: Revised Application for the Erection of 1 No. Detached Dwellinghouse and Detached Garage.

Location: Plot 66, Riverview, Ingleby Barwick.  

 

The Parish Council considered all of the information and plans provided in respect of planning application no. 06/3768/REV.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk informs S.B.C. that the Parish Council has no comments to raise in respect of the proposal.

 

(f) Planning Application No. 06/3779/FUL

Proposal: Revised Application for Alterations to Front and Side Elevations.

Location: Unit 1, Beckfields Shopping Centre, Ingleby Barwick. 

 

The Parish Council considered all of the information and plans provided in respect of planning application no. 06/3779/FUL.

 

RESOLVED that the Clerk informs S.B.C. that the Parish Council has no comments to raise in respect of the proposal.

 

156.  REPORT FROM INGLEBY BARWICK COMMUNITY HALL MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE.

 

Councillor Mrs Machin gave a brief report back from the meeting held on 16th January 2007 with a representative from Persimmon Homes and two representatives from ROK Group construction.  Three representatives from the Community Hall Management Committee were present at the meeting.

The visitors were shown the plans for the proposed extension to the Community Hall, for which planning permission has already been granted.  A brief history of progress so far was outlined. 

 

Chairman……………………………………….

                                                                                                                                    13 of 16

 

The representatives from ROK outlined their typical operations and noted that their Community Project undertakings were more akin to refurbishments than extensions.  They could undertake the Hall extension as a building contract and would consider part of the scheme to be completed as a Community Project.

The financial situation was outlined and it was noted that all the developers in Ingleby Barwick had been asked to contribute to the scheme however none had responded positively.  Reference was also made to the interest from SURE START.

The representative from Persimmon was amazed to find that the Community Hall is the only dedicated community facility in Ingleby Barwick, apart from use of the Secondary School and Church.

The representatives from ROK took copies of the plans as well as taking photographs of the Community Hall, both inside and out.  They are to report back with a price in the near future.  

 

157.  COMMUNITY COMMUNICATION.

 

RESOLVED that the next article for publication includes the following:
