SEWERS - KIRKBY MALZEARD VILLAGE

Within the responses received by Vernon & Co in respect of the proposed development on Laverton Road, a number of people referred to problems affecting the existing foul and surface water sewers within the village. These are the responsibility of Yorkshire Water or the Highways Dept at North Yorkshire County Council and if problems exist they should be rectified, regardless of whether or not the development goes ahead. The Parish Council is therefore making enquiries to establish the extent of work required to bring the sewers up to an adequate standard. Could you please contact the Chairman, Howard Mountain on 658838 or by email kmldpc@btinternet.com with details of known problems so that these can be investigated. 

THE FORMER HENRY JENKINS PUBLIC HOUSE

There was a small fire at the Henry Jenkins building recently started by a local youngster and as a result of this the owner was asked by the Fire Services and by his Insurers, to board up the windows and doors, which has now been carried out..

The application earlier in the year by the 'Save The Henry Jenkins Group' to have the property listed as an Asset of Community Value was successful but the owner subsequently requested that the decision be reviewed. The review has now been completed and the decision upheld so the property continues to be listed as an ACV. The owner also gave notice on July 5 of his intention to dispose of the property and the Save the Henry Jenkins group (who have now formed themselves into a Community Co-op) have made a written request to be treated as a potential bidder. The moratorium period has therefore been extended to 6 months during which time the owner cannot sell to any one else. He does not however have to accept their offer and at the end of the six months he can sell to anyone else at whatever price he chooses. The purchase price being quoted by the owner is £450,000. The owner has also recently lodged an appeal against the planning decision to refuse re-development of the site for housing made earlier in the year. Further information and updates are available on the Henry Jenkins website:  ://www.thehenryjenkins.com/
