Laxton Parish Council Accounts
The annual Parish Council accounts are available for inspection. Read more information here and see the accounts here.
Laxton Play Area
Residents have asked whether there is the potential for a children's play area in Laxton. There is an unused part of Laxton Allotments that could be suitable. The Parish Council have approached two companies for drawings and a quote. The drawings are attached here (option 1 option 2), and the prices are in the region of £50,000. If any residents would like to form a group to develop the project, consult the community and raise funds (probably through the Wind Farm) please come along to a Parish Council meeting or get in touch at email@example.com.
Clearing up after your Dog
The Parish Council had received complaints about dog fouling, and people living used doggie bags at the side of the road and in hedgerows. Here's some advice from East Riding of Yorkshire Council:
For public and animal health reasons, and for the benefit of other people enjoying the outdoors, dog walkers should always clean up after their dogs.
All East Riding of Yorkshire Council litter bins may be used for disposing of bagged up dog waste collected whilst walking your dog.
- If anyone leaves bags of dog waste on trees, bushes, the base of a lamp post etc. they are committing a littering offence that may also be punished by way of a £75 fixed penalty being issued.
The “stick and flick” approach is not adopted in the East Riding and would still be subject to a fixed penalty, unless you have the landowners permission.
Anyone can contact the East Riding of Yorkshire Council dog wardens to pass on information about irresponsible dog owners - (01482) 393939
