Cadney Cum Howsham Parish Council

Cadney Cum Howsham Parish Council Emergency Meeting

In the last few weeks an important court case has decided that Town and Parish Council meetings can no longer be held online. As a result the council is awaiting information on how to proceed and will have further updates concerning meetings once we have talked to our advisers at ERNLLCA. We do appreciate that there is a lot of political interest in the parish at the moment and many will be disappointed that meetings may be delayed however we will keep you informed as we continue to keep councillors and our public spaces safe.

Before the meeting begins, there will be a period where members of the public will be allowed to speak. Once the meeting has started properly, no further speaking by members of the public is permitted. Questions may also be submitted by email if residents are unable to attend.

Flytipping has become a major concern for the Parish. If you know of any sites that have tipping incidents please report it to the Clerk and on the North Lincs Website here;

We are also looking to appoint a new Footpath Warden. A Footpath Warden reports to the council on footpaths and rights of way and helps report on paths general upkeep on access to the countryside.
