Parish Magazine Update - March 2019

published on 1st Mar 2019

This notice was last updated on 1st Mar 2019.

The following update appeared in March's Parish Magazine:

Escrick Parish Council


A19/Skipwith Road junction scheme: at the time of writing the Parish Council is still investigating loan options for the scheme, and plans a public consultation in due course.

The Council has received quotes for highways consultancy services to look at other issues, and the NDP project will take-on this area of work.

Cllr Musgrave advised that from April Parish Council’s will be able to purchase their own ‘vehicle activated speeding signs’.



Former Stillingfleet mine site: The application for a waste sorting centre has been deferred again until at least April’s committee meeting.

Former North Selby mine site: The application for a caravan/leisure park was submitted in January. The plan proposes approximately 300 static caravans, plus glamping pods and touring pitches. Whilst the Parish Council would have preferred the site to be returned to agriculture, given previous judgements this seems highly unlikely. As such, the proposals are the ‘least bad’ option that we have seen proposed for any of the former mine sites. The Parish Council has made representations suggesting that the park be limited to temporary residences; that the footprint of the proposal be reduced to avoid the ‘Sites of Importance for Nature Conservation’ (SINC) and avoid removal of wooded areas; along with requesting that various details of the application are re-checked by officers.

Former brickworks in-fill site: The site operator has applied for a variation to restoration conditions which would keep the site active for around 8 more years, and raise the level of the restoration to between 4m and 9m above the surrounding area. The Council has submitted objections on various grounds.


Neighbourhood Development Plan:

A public meeting was held on 20th January and got good attendance. The project is now moving into the next phase, focusing work around five themes: Transport & Movement; Housing; Community Facilities; Economic Development and Other. Workstream leads have been identified and workshops expected to be scheduled during March/April.


Tour de Yorkshire:

The Tour de Yorkshire will come through the village (Skipwith Rd, Carr Lane, A19) on Thursday, 2nd May.  Timings are to be confirmed by the organiser in March. There will be approximately 1 hour road closures to allow the race to pass.


Councillors: We are glad to welcome John Reader back to the Parish Council. We still have three vacancies – please contact us via details below if you would like to join the Parish Council.


Parish Council meeting dates:  Monday 4th March, 1st April, 13th May. All meetings at 7.30pm at Escrick & Deighton Club. Public welcome. Contact:  Chair (Richard Rowson),; Clerk (Helen Guest),; Website:

Minerals and Waste planning applications

published on 31st Jan 2019 (updated on 1st Apr 2019)

This notice was last updated on 1st Apr 2019.

As there has been some confusion locally regarding the number of and status of various planning applications, I would like to clarify the position.

There are four separate proposals at different stages of development:

1Former Stillingfleet Mine siteProposals to develop part of the site as a waste sorting centre. The planning application has been submitted by Harworth Estates. The Parish Council has made representations and worked to support local residents with their objections.  A decision is expected to be made by North Yorkshire County Council planning committee on 26th February.
Residents can read more or make representations at:
2Former North Selby Mine siteProposals to develop the site as a caravan park, with a mix of static caravans, touring plots and glamping pods. This planning application was submitted by Harworth Estates in January, and the Parish Council will agree its response at February's meeting. This site currently has planning permission for use as an anaerobic digestor site.
Residents can read more or make representations at:
3Former brickworks waste infill siteProposals to vary the conditions for infill and restoration of the former brickworks quarry west of the A19. Planning application was submitted by Escrick Environmental Services in January. The Parish Council will agree its response at February's meeting. This site is a former clay pit, and is in the process of being infilled and restored.
Residents can read more or make representations at:
4Proposed new clay extraction west of A19Proposals for long-term clay extraction from an area west of the A19, north and west of the business park.  These proposals were first raised in the Joint Minerals and Waste Plan and then subsequent 'scoping opinion' application.
No planning application has been submitted at this time. This is expected within the next few months.
The Parish Council will review the application when it has been submitted.
