226. NEW PRIMARY SCHOOL SITE, BARWICK WAY/LOW LANE, INGLEBY BARWICK – AEROPLANE CRASH, DE HAVILLAND MOSQUITO ON 11TH NOVEMBER 1943 – MR DAVID THOMPSON TO MAKE A SHORT PRESENTATION ON HIS FINDINGS TO DATE.
The Chairman introduced Mr David Thompson and invited him to give a short presentation on his findings to date.
Mr Thompson thanked the Parish Council for their kind invitation to attend the meeting and circulated a copy of the press release printed in the Evening Gazette on Friday 18th February 2005, as well as a copy of the Tees Archaeology Sites and Monuments Record.
It was noted that in 1943, a De Havilland Mosquito aeroplane crashed into the field High Leven Cottages – the site where the 630-place school is currently being built. The two men killed were pilot Flight Lieutenant Alan John Farquhar Symes, of the Royal Canadian Air Force, and Navigator Sergeant Edward Lyon of the Royal Air Force. Mr Thompson is currently in the process of trying to contact the relatives of the two men.
Mr Thompson, a local aviation historian believes that the new school on Low Lane, Ingleby Barwick, could use the historic site for educational purposes.
In 1977 a local man attempted to recover the remains of the aircraft, including two engines. Mr Thompson has also visited the site and found small pieces of wreckage on the surface.
4 of 17
After viewing the plans for the new school building, Mr Thompson said the crash site appears to be close to the proposed new sports pitches.
He believes it would be fitting to incorporate the names of the airmen who lost their lives within the school by means of a memorial.
It was noted that this year is the 60th anniversary of the end of the Second World War and it would be nice if something could be done to remember these two airmen
The possibility of incorporating the names of the two airmen somewhere within the school, possibly a memorial plaque or stone, schoolhouse names or the name of the small access road was suggested.
Mr Thompson informed that he has been in contact with Yarmside Holdings, Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council (S.B.C.) and is now requesting the support of the Parish Council.
It was raised that there are a number of other crash sites within Ingleby Barwick, which should also be considered, to be incorporated within any suitably placed ‘memorial’.
Various options, locations and possible funding were discussed.
RESOLVED that the Parish Council support the project and the matter to be progressed firstly, with Mrs Martin Head Teacher at Ingleby Mill Primary school.
227. MINUTES OF THE MEETING OF INGLEBY BARWICK PARISH COUNCIL HELD ON 16TH MARCH 2005 AND MINUTES OF THE SPECIAL MEETING HELD ON 23RD MARCH 2005. AFTER CONSIDERATION, TO APPROVE THE SIGNATURE OF THE MINUTES BY THE PERSON PRESIDING AS A CORRECT RECORD.

228. MATTERS ARISING FROM THE MEETINGS ON 16TH MARCH AND 23RD MARCH 2005.
(a) Item 23 (c) 2000/2001 - Greenside and Beckfields Shopping Centres, Ingleby Barwick.
The Clerk informed that she has spoken to the enforcement officer at S.B.C. regarding the litter and graffiti problems at Beckfields Medical Centre, who is to investigate the matter and take the appropriate action.
5 of 17
It was noted that the latest edition of the ‘Local Council Review’, provides information on the new powers for ‘Cleaning Up Your Area’.
(b) Item 7 2004/2005 CCTV Camera, Beckfields Shopping Centre, Ingleby Barwick.
The Clerk informed that she has contacted Visual Security Systems (V.S.S.) regarding setting up a meeting at the Control Centre for Parish Council members to see a demonstration of the technology and view the images projected from the camera.
It was noted that the meeting could be held any afternoon, after 27th April 2005.
RESOLVED that the Clerk arrange a date for the meeting in May 2005 and inform Parish Council members accordingly.
(c) Item 130 Planning Applications - Over Development of Housing Plots.
The Clerk reported that following concerns raised by the Parish Council with regard to the over development of housing plots i.e. large extensions in Ingleby Barwick, she had sent a letter to S.B.C. requesting information on what their Policy is on the matter.
A response has been received from S.B.C., apologising for the delay in reply to the Parish Council’s letter and informing the following:
PPG3 tends to give guidance on macro housing issues such as promoting sustainable patterns of development and creating mixed communities and, accordingly, doesn’t cover household extensions. Central Government give limited guidance in respect of household extensions, nevertheless the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister’s publication ‘Planning: a Guide for Householders’ does state that:
‘Everybody’s taste varies and different styles will suit different types of property.
Nevertheless, a well-designed building or extension is likely to be much more
attractive to you and to your neighbours… Extensions often look better if they
use the same materials and are in a similar style to the buildings which are
there already. It is impossible to give a single definition of good design in this
context; there may be many ways of producing a good result. In some areas,
the council’s planning department issues design guides or other advisory
A copy of the S.B.C.’s Household Extension Design Guide was enclosed.
In determining applications for household extensions, the Council does not apply a strict floorspace to plot ratio but instead suggest that approximately two-thirds of the plot should remain as usable private amenity space (see Paragraph 2.5). Ultimately, any application will be judged on its own merits taking into account all relevant material considerations.
6 of 17
(c) Item 150 2004/2005 Mud on the Road, Queen Elizabeth Way.
No further concerns have been raised to date.
(d) Item 177 2004/2005 River Tees Heritage Park Proposals – Footbridge Over the River Tees.
The Clerk reported that she had received an acknowledgement of receipt from S.B.C. for the Parish Council’s letter and a detailed response is awaited.
It was noted that the CPRE meeting which was held on 31st March 2005 at Bannatyne’s Health Club, commencing at 7.30 pm, for members of the public to view the Heritage Park proposals, was well attended. People were generally very enthusiastic and some left their contact details for possible future involvement.
It was noted that there is to be a presentation event, to be held at Preston Park on 19th June 2005.
(e) Item 203 2004/2005 Thornaby and Ingleby Barwick Football Club (TIBS) – Thornaby Road Football Pitches Project.
The Clerk informed that she had sent a letter to S.B.C. informing that the Parish Council fully support the Project, which is a much needed facility for Thornaby and Ingleby Barwick and are very disappointed to hear that there may be some delay with the works due to a potential shortfall in the external funding.
To date Ingleby Barwick Parish Council has contributed £7,000 towards the project, as well as committing a further £20,000 (£10,000 04/05 and £10,000 05/06).
The Parish Council would hope that S.B.C. makes every effort to rectify the situation and secure appropriate funding, with the view to building works commencing as soon as possible.
It was noted that the matter is still being progressed, with hopefully a decision reached in the near future to enable building works to commence.
(f) Item 212 2004/2005 Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council – Area Transport Strategies.
The Clerk noted receipt of correspondence from S.B.C. following the meeting of Stockton Renaissance on 12th April 2005. The Parish Council’s comments were considered at the meeting as follows:
The Parish Council's comments regarding the proposed Area Boundaries were considered by the Renaissance Board. However, the Board felt that the development of separate Area Strategies for Ingleby Barwick and Thornaby was not a viable option,
7 of 17
due to their close proximity, the number of existing 'cross boundary' traffic movements and the inevitable impact that any major infrastructure schemes (such as the implementation of Stages 4 and 5 of the former Thornaby Bypass Scheme, as suggested by the Parish Council) would have on both communities.
Scope of Area-Based Strategies
Notwithstanding the above, consideration will certainly be given to the implementation of Stages 4 and 5 should the Parish Council choose to put this scheme forward as part of the strategy development process. A detailed programme for development of all four Area Strategies is currently in preparation.
Finally, and in line with the list of stakeholders proposed in the draft Guidance Note, it can be confirmed that Councillors from both of the new Wards in Ingleby Barwick will be invited to join the Area Strategy Steering Group upon its inception.
(g) Item 213 2004/2005 Ingleby Barwick Parish Council – Office Accommodation.
The Clerk informed that she is liaising with S.B.C. and is awaiting confirmation of a meeting date with Mr S. Barker, Head of Planning and Environment, which is to be attended by the Chairman, the Vice- Chairman and the Clerk.
229. LAND TO THE REAR OF ALL SAINTS SECONDARY SCHOOL, INGLEBY BARWICK.
The Clerk noted receipt of a copy letter from S.B.C. to Ingleby Barwick Residents Network (IBRN) noting that further to the meeting on Tuesday 5th April 2005, between representatives from I.B.R.N., Ingleby Barwick Parish Council and S.B.C., copies of the plan of the site have been copied onto an A4 plan to I.B.R.N., as discussed.
Also enclosed was a copy of the list of suggested play elements, for the equipped play area, to be developed on the open space to the northeastern side of the proposed Broomwood development. This list, as compiled by the Council, has been passed to design consultants acting on behalf of Persimmon, who shall send back their proposals, based on the list. As yet, the Council has had no feedback on this issue from the design consultants.
Also as discussed, the play equipment manufacturers have web sites where the suggested play equipment can be viewed.
It was noted that IBRN are currently in the process of approaching the local schools for their input and ideas, as well as nearby residents.
It is suggested that the land could be split into two, to provide both a community garden/environmental improvements and a kick about area.

Great North Air Ambulance
The Clerk noted receipt of a letter informing that The Great North Air Ambulance (Registered Charity No. 1092204) is currently responsible for the operation of three helicopters, one operating from Blyth in Northumberland, one operating from Durham Tees valley Airport and one at Penrith. Each helicopter flies on average 3 to 5 missions per day covering Northumberland, Cumbria, Tyne & Wear, County Durham, Teesside and North Yorkshire.
The Charity contacts all Parish Councils in the North of England to ask if they would consider a grant to help maintain this vital service.
The aim of the charity is to maintain and improve the Air Ambulance Service here in the region. This essential service is the only effective way to transport seriously ill or injured patients to a place of definitive care, thereby saving life, and unnecessary suffering.
As a registered Charity, they receive no government funding, nor are they likely to do so! The entire operation depends on finding ways to raise the necessary £2.25 million per annum to keep this service flying (£750,000 per aircraft per year).
Since September 2003, the Charity, in partnership with the James Cook University Hospital of North Tees, offers a full Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) operation to the people of the region. This means that a doctor specialising in pre-hospital care will be on board the Durham Tees Valley aircraft 7 days per week, every mission flown. The doctors are also trained in accident and emergency medicine, and anaesthetics. The doctors have had to undergo a structured training schedule, including navigation, complex communication, safety awareness and helicopter systems. They also had to learn how to ‘ditch’ in open water.
10 of 17
The Teesside aircraft is manned by one pilot, one highly qualified paramedic and one doctor. Outside of London, this is the only helicopter service to offer this first class level of patient care to the people of the region. It is the hope of the Charity to eventually extend the flying doctor service to its other aircraft’s based at Blyth and Penrith. Until then, the Blyth and Penrith helicopters will operate with one pilot and two highly qualified paramedics.
The Charity is also tasked with raising enough money to replace its current aircraft, as European legislation states that by 2006, they will be obsolete.
RESOLVED that the Parish Council approves a grant for the sum of £300.00 to The Great North Air Ambulance, the Clerk to forward a cheque accordingly.
333. COMMUNITY FACILITIES.
The Clerk informed that in the budget set for 2005/2006, the amounts allocated under community facilities are as follows:
Tree Planting - £1,000.00
Christmas Tree - £1,000.00
Street Furniture - £1,000.00
334. PLANNING APPLICATIONS.
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. 05/0999/REM

Location: Hill Brook, Ingleby Barwick.
The Parish Council considered all the information and plans provided in respect of planning application no. 05/0999/REM.

RESOLVED that the Clerk submit the following comments to S.B.C. on behalf of the Parish Council:
Ingleby Barwick Parish Council has concerns in respect of the existing access off the A1044, which is a difficult and dangerous junction to manoeuvre, especially for heavy vehicles.
In order to avoid traffic problems, access should be limited to times when traffic is at a minimum and peak hour/school bus times should definitely be avoided.
Concerns are raised as to how the ‘left turn in’ and ‘left turn out’ of the junction will be enforced. It is suggested that an instruction could be issued to construction vehicles accessing the site.
It should be ensured that adequate and appropriate signage is erected.
(c) Planning Application No. 05/0381/REM

Dwellings Comprising 104 Flats/140 Sheltered Apartments and 187 Terraced,
