Cadney Cum Howsham Parish Council

The next meeting of Full Council will be on Wednesday the 15th of June 2022 at Cadney Village Rooms at 7pm. You can find an agenda here in the Agendas and Minutes section of this website.

We now have three vacancies, the council will hear applications for co-option at the next meeting. Anyone who wishes to apply can contact the Clerk for details. Candidates will be expected to provide a CV and covering letter to help Councilors inform their decisions when selecting candidates.

The council is working towards more road safety solutions this year starting with a road survey leading to the establishment of the Community Speedwatch Scheme. We are once again looking for volunteers for this project. Please get in contact with the Clerk if you would like to take part. It requires six volunteers to remain viable. Two councillors and one volunteer have kindly come forward.

With the Queen's Jubilee celebrations being this year, a separate committee is being established to support ideas and ways to celebrate. The committee is looking for as many diverse ideas as possible to help represent everyone in the two villages, so please come forward with any projects you think would mark the occasion well!

If you would like to volunteer for either of these projects please let the Clerk know via email or by phone 07971920551.

Over the last year the council has tried to be very vocal about the issues the parish suffers with fly tipping. Just before and during the lockdowns as less people were out and about, we seemed to have a spate of cases which encouraged us to be more vocal about our concerns and we asked parisohoners to report every incident to either North Lincolnshire Council or through the Clerk or both. This has been a successful strategy, however with the nights drawing darker we are concerned that tipping may start up again and we wish to remind everyone the visual blight that it is on the landscape, the cost it brings to the council and therefore to the taxpayers of North Lincs, and of course the fact it is illegal. There have been successful prosecutions brought in the Parish in recent years. So please report any incidents to North Lincs via the portal here;
