There is a planning application for a Large Development of 119 houses in Ferriby off Ferriby High Road. This would increase traffic at Ferriby crossroads in addition to that from Swanland's two large developments on West Leys Road
Case reference 21/03132/STPLF. Public Comments must be submitted by 8th October
SEE Site Plan (pdf)

Another 4 houses in the village!
Plans for new houses on east of Easenby Lodge via an access road off Beech Hill Road have been approved despite flooding fears. Planning Ref. REF 21/00163/PLF.
Ward Councillor Julie Abraham spoke against the proposal.
Apparently so called "In-fill" developments are not covered by the local plan.

Swanland's New Shop

The Old Cow Shed Village Store at the rear of Burman's Yard, West End is open from 10am to 4pm weekdays & 9am to 1pm on Saturday.

It is selling as much locally produced stock as possible, such as local eggs, fruit and vegetables, locally produced cereals and grains, some organic products and vegan and gluten free goods, organic herbs and spices. Buy as much as you need - one egg or a single carrot is no problem.

The aim of the shop is to try and keep things local and reduce as much packaging as possible. Customers are welcome to bring their own egg boxes in order to reduce packaging, or their own containers for loose goods.

At present cash only but a telephone line and internet connection should be installed shortly to enable card payments.

Fishing is NOT PERMITTED on the pond, even with a rod license. The police are monitoring the situation.

If you witness anyone fishing and feel comfortable please point out the signs, if this conversation turns abusive call 101.

Duck Food Signs
Two signs in the pond highlight the importance of feeding the ducks with grain. Bread pollutes the pond water and is less healthy for ducks. Healthier food (grain) is available from the Peppertree florist. The fish feed themselves.
