Village Hall Watering Point
A water supply tap has been fitted tap the left of the main door so that the Watering Volunteers do not have to run out a long length of hose from Christ Church. The tap has a combination lock - the code can be obtained from Brendan Riley.

Swanland Library - Temporary Closure
The library will close after Saturday 30th September at 12 pm. for a refurbishment scheme which will remodel the inside of the library to create more space for public use and for groups to meet. It is estimated that the work will take three weeks.

The refurbished library will offer better facilities. During the closure, the closest alternative branch libraries are Willerby and North Ferriby. Online renewals and reservation, or the use of the library app for these services, will also be available.

Gladman Developments ordered to pay costs of a planning appeal
Gladman (who applied to build on Westfield farm) have been ordered to pay ERYC for costs in a recent appeal of theirs at Holme-on-Spalding Moor. Planning Practice Guidance advises that costs may be awarded against a party who has behaved unreasonably and thereby caused the party applying for costs to incur unnecessary or wasted expense in the appeal process. See full statement by Planning Inspectorate (pdf)

Given that they lost the South Cave appeal and have not so far appealed against the Westfield Farm rejection (they have 2 months left to do) they may realise that ERYC are mounting a robust and effective defence of the Local Plan.

Swanland Village Signs Project
In 2009 the SVA started erecting village signs depicting a Swan on a blue background in an oval gold frame. They measure approximately one metre across with the village name in green and gold underneath and cost over £2000 each.

They are now looking for local businesses or business people to sponsor part or all of cost of a final & 7th further sign for Woodgates Lane which will cost £2,162.

Please do not pollute the Pond
Please do not throw ANYTHING into the village pond - as well as litter, traffic cones and the usual debris this includes unwanted water plants and fish. The pond group should be consulted about any form of wild life or plants being introduced. If you want to feed the ducks Please use grain. Proper duck food is available from the Peppertree florist.
