National Grid Electricity Transmission

April 10th, 2024 Posted by Local News 0 thoughts on “National Grid Electricity Transmission”

Dear Parish Council, 

Last summer we introduced our proposals to reinforce the electricity transmission network between a new substation to the north of Hull, near Creyke Beck, and a new substation at High Marnham in Nottinghamshire.  

Our first stage of public consultation ran for eight weeks, from 1 June to 27 July 2023. We would once again like to thank everyone who took the time to attend our public consultation events and provide feedback. 

Attached to this email please find our Community update newsletter, which we have posted to just under 12,000 properties located within 1km of the emerging preferred corridor. The newsletter will also be available on our website in due course, in the “News” section.   

If you have any questions, please contact us at or call our community relations line at 0800 0541 4430.   

We look forward to hearing from you.   

Yours sincerely,   

Rachel Tullis   

Project Director, North Humber to High Marnham

March 5th, 2024 Posted by Local News 0 thoughts on “NOTICE”
The Parish Councils redsponse submitted 05.03.2024:

The Parish Council recommend refusal to the application. 

Concerns were raised with the limited amount of time provided to the Parish Council to make comment on this large application, on a site which is not included within the Local Development Plan. 

The number of properties proposed within the application cannot be considered as an “In-Fill” or “windfall” site and exceeds the number of properties normally allowed off a private drive and would therefore have a detrimental effect on the location being within a conservation area and would be considered overdevelopment of the site. 

South Cave being classed as a Primary Village must consider Residential development which includes Affordable Housing which is commensurate with the scale, role, and character of the village. This planning application does not bring new and/or enhanced local services and facilities, nor does it bring economic development appropriate to the scale of the village.

The extreme impact on the numbers of trees to be felled within the application would have a detrimental impact on the Street-scene and other surrounding properties.

The conservation area is a fundamental part of the village where ERYC should support the Parish Council in preserving the depleting village tree stock, and therefore the Parish Council would request the ERYC tree officer visit the site to consider TPO’s be placed on the affected trees now under threat.  

The planning application states the entry / exit gates of the Dower House onto Station Road currently only cater for 4 vehicles. If the proposed development build is approved this will increase to at least 19 vehicles and effectively be handling two-way traffic from 7 properties including the Dower House.

The A1034 main trunk road passes immediately past the property gateway, with the traffic density ever increasing year on year and should demand as suggested by the Highway Development Management Team (HDM) that a swept path analysis be carried out on the entrance/exit before any recommendation can be made by them.

Other points raised are the access route width, number of passing places, the surface finish (proposed is gravel) its suitability to pedestrians and wheelchair users because of the incline, and waste bin storage area. If the ERYC are minded approving the application the Parish Council request the application be sent to committee for consideration.

Time to get walking again!

With Spring on its way we start to think about getting out to walk in the beautiful English countryside again, but where to find new and interesting walks?

Walking in Yorkshire has loads of walks to download and print, free, it also has books of walks, details of all the walking groups in the county and much more. Whether you want to walk on your own or with a group all the information is there in one place.

John Harris (who maintains the website) said ‘There is so much walking information on the web but it is difficult to find. Walking in Yorkshire (part of the Walking in England website) has brought it together in one place so whether you are walking from home, or away on holiday, you will be able to find a walk suitable for you’.

With walks from half a mile to twelve miles plus long, and a note of suitability for pushchairs and wheelchairs, everyone can find a walk to enjoy.

So home or away, check out the websites and get walking!

Responsible dog walking

Going out for a walk is an important part of your dog’s day, and the countryside can be a good place to do this. To keep you, your dog and other animals safe, follow our simple top tips for a safe countryside dog walk.


Follow the marked footpaths, close gates behind you and don’t stray into fields. Crops that are in early and later stages of growth are easily damaged by dogs and people walking on them.

Litter and dog poo

Poo bags and litter can seriously harm wildlife and farm animals as they may try to eat it, thinking it’s food. Always make sure you dispose of all your rubbish and dog poo in a bin. If there aren’t any public waste bins nearby, you should take the litter home with you and use your own bin. 

We have more information about how to dispose of different types of litter safely. Dog walkers can play an important role in keeping the countryside safe for everyone by picking up any litter you see, even if it’s not yours, and safely disposing of it in a bin. 


Many dogs will show interest in livestock and even if you think your dog wouldn’t harm another animal, accidents can happen. Dogs can easily frighten animals; ewes and lambs, in particular. Ewes can abort their unborn lambs, be separated from the herd and be seriously injured if they come into contact with dogs. Give livestock plenty of space, and don’t try to feed them as it might cause them harm.

Putting your dog in a situation where they end up chasing farm animals, wildlife or other pets can have far more serious consequences.

If your dog worries livestock, you may end up being sued for compensation and, in some circumstances, farmers are legally entitled to shoot dogs if they’re endangering their sheep.

How to stop your dog from worrying sheep

It can be all too easy to become complacent when walking your dogs, after all, it’s something we do every day. But remember, the resulting loss of life if your dog escapes your control – even for a moment – can be devastating. Don’t be caught out – follow these top tips:

  • Be aware of the effects of sheep-worrying, and let others know too
  • Make sure you know where your dog is at all times
  • If you’re letting your dog off the lead, be confident there are no livestock nearby
  • Be sure that your dog will return to you promptly on command, and if in doubt, keep them on the lead

Find out more about teaching your dog to come when called as well as other useful advice on caring for and understanding your dog.

Worried about a farm animal?

Find out who to contact if you think a farm animal is sick or injured.


Wherever you go in the countryside there will be wildlife nearby, and even though you might not be able to see them if they’re hidden away in bushes or hedgerows, dogs can still sniff them out thanks to their fantastic sense of smell. These could be young wild animals waiting for their parents, or adults trying to keep their young safe such as ground-nesting birds sitting on eggs. Be aware of areas where wildlife might be hiding and ensure your dog doesn’t disturb them, as this could cause parents to abandon their young or be chased and seriously injured by a dog. It’s the best way to keep your dog safe too, as some wild animals can be aggressive if they’re attacked and need to defend themselves or their young.

This is important all year round, but be especially careful in the spring and summer as this is when many wild animals will be breeding and have vulnerable offspring. If you are walking your dog in an area with deer between early May and late June, watch out for newborn deer who are especially vulnerable at this time and many are killed or injured by dogs. And if you’re walking on beaches or near areas where seals will come out of the water to rest, make sure your dog is on a lead and keep at least 100 metres distance and as far away from the seals as possible to avoid disturbing them.

Dogs can also harm wildlife living in ponds, as well as being at risk themselves if they swim in some ponds – find out more from Froglife.

Dog Fouling – ERYC Update

December 6th, 2022 Posted by Local News 0 thoughts on “Dog Fouling – ERYC Update”

Update received from ERYC Dog Warden – Neil Fraser  

Many thanks for contacting us regarding the dog fouling issues in South Cave, I have conducted two patrols last week and sadly I agree with you that the irresponsible few are clearly allowing their dogs to foul in various public areas throughout the village.   You may note that I have increased the enforcement signage in the village and I have spoken to a number of local residents and encouraged them to report any information that they may have, any violations that we can prove will result in prosecution 

I will continue with the patrols and hopefully this will have a positive effect on this problem.

Please let me know If you have any further info and request residents to report dog fouling to the ERYC by visiting: Dog control and ownership ( or call: 01482 393939; email:

Neil Fraser (Dog warden)

Dog Fouling

November 29th, 2022 Posted by Local News 0 thoughts on “Dog Fouling”

Reports of excessive dog fouling around the village which is causing distress to residents are on the increase. If you are a dog walker or owner, please ensure you pick up your dog poo.

Dog fouling is a major concern to many people, not just because of the mess it causes, but because it can be a health risk. Dogs may deposit roundworm eggs (toxocara canis) in their faeces, which become infectious after about 3 weeks, and can remain so for up to 2 years.

Anyone, but particularly children playing near to the ground, can run the risk of picking up and swallowing the eggs. The eggs then hatch in the intestine, burrow through the intestine wall into the blood stream and pass into the body.

Possible symptoms of toxocaral infection range from aches, dizziness and nausea to asthma and pneumonia, but as these symptoms can all be caused by other things, infections often go undiagnosed. In the UK there are around 100 cases of toxocariasis diagnosed each year.

In rare cases eye disease and loss of vision can be caused when the toxocara larva passes through the eye.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Parish Council?

It is a statutory local authority set up under the Local Government Act 1972. A town or Parish Council is a local authority that makes decisions on behalf of the people in the parish. It is the level government closest to the community.

Who is on the Council?

It is made up of 11 Parish Councillors who do not receive remuneration or payment for their work. They are elected once every four years. Every year the Parish Council Council elects one of them to be the Chairman of the Parish Council.

Can I attend meetings of the council?

Yes, meetings of the Parish Council and its committees are open to the public and the press, except in very exceptional circumstances. The time and place of meetings must be advertised beforehand – usually on the noticeboards and website.

Can I speak at meetings of the Parish Council?

You cannot speak while the normal business of the meeting is being conducted. However, in some meetings there is a ‘public forum’ where members of the public can speak. The Clerk can provide you with details about how this works.

Elections are held every four years and will usually coincide with a District Council election. A Public Notice of a forthcoming election will be placed on noticeboards and on this website.

In these circumstances, the Parish Council can co-opt someone to fill the vacancies.

What powers does the Parish Council have with respect to planning?

Planning Notifications

February 9th, 2021 Posted by Planning 0 thoughts on “Planning Notifications”

The East Riding of Yorkshire Council published an article within the “Your East Riding” informing residents of the changes to their Planning Application publicity taking effect from 1 April 2017.

These changes formed part of a wider initiative to encourage a greater use of technology within the Council and the planning service, and as the ERYC would no longer be posting individual letters to neighbouring properties, the article set out the benefits for residents of registering on the ERYC Public Access website in order to keep informed of new planning applications, track applications of interest and make any comments.   Any complaints relating to these procedures should be submitted to Stephen Hunt, Head of Planning, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, County Hall, Cross Street, Beverley, HU17 9BA.

The Parish Council are not responsible for the notification of Planning Applications to neighbouring properties, this is the responsibility of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council and complaints relating to the timing of their display notices etc should be directed to themselves at County Hall.  The Parish Council have a obligation to display Agendas for meetings providing three clear days within the Parish Notice boards both at West End – Costcutters & Market Place – Town Hall.  The Agendas are also uploaded to the Parish website

It is important residents regularly visit the notice boards or the website to ensure they are fully up to date with matters detailed on the agenda, within the minutes and also the general information provided which may be of interest in residents and visitors to the area.

August 6th, 2018 Posted by Local News 0 thoughts on “Defibrillators”

South Cave is proud to have five Community Public Access (Automated External) Defibrillators, (CPAD’s), which are located in yellow cabinets outside Costcutters Pinfold, South Cave Sporting Club at the playing field behind the school, Pass the Parcel (used to be South Cave Post Office) in Brough Road, All Saints Community Centre on Church Hill, and inside South Cave Sewell Service Station, behind the counter.


CPAD’s can be vitally important in saving the life of a person who may be suffering from a Cardiac Arrest.

The CPAD’s can be accessed in an emergency, 24 hours of every day, by anyone, using the following instructions:-

  • Dial 999 from any phone, or alternatively 112 from a mobile phone, and ask for an ambulance;
  • If you are within 600 metres of one of the CPAD’s, you will be alerted to it and asked “is there someone with you who can go and get it?”
  • You will also be given a code, to open the yellow cabinet;
  • Someone must stay with the patient and start administering CPR (Cardio-pulmonary resuscitation);
  • Therefore, to access the defibrillator you would need someone else with you;
  • If you are on your own, you will be advised to stay with the patient and start CPR, without delay;
  • After retrieving the defibrillator, or if you are on your own with the patient, you will be guided through CPR and the defibrillator’s use, by an Emergency Call Handler.

As soon as possible, you will be joined by trained emergency personnel from Yorkshire Ambulance Service, (maybe initially one of the local Community First Responders), who will take over from you immediately, and may appreciate you staying at the scene, in case you can assist.


Please be assured that you can make an immediate difference to the patient’s chances of a full recovery, if you follow this process – you do not need to be specially trained – you will be supported throughout by the Emergency Call Handler.
