Full draft Minutes of a Carlby Parish Council meeting held on 14 September 2022 can be found on the website. 

As this meeting had already been called and had satisfied the three clear days’ notice prior to the sad death of Queen Elizabeth II. Carlby Parish Council legally continued with the meeting as the agenda below as there was urgent business on the agenda to be dealt with. 

The meeting commenced with a 2-minute silence 

Co-option of New Councillor. One application had been received from Lesley Sweeting which was circulated prior to the meeting. Proposal: To co-opt Lesley Sweeting to the vacant seat of the Parish Council. Proposed Cllr. Bavister, Seconded Cllr. Dair and unanimous in favour. RESOLVED. 

Lesley signed the Declaration of Acceptance of Office form. The Parish Council welcomed Lesley warmly to the Parish Council. 

Bus shelters At the Annual Parish Meeting it was suggested that something be done about the leaning bus shelter on the main road. Tree roots have lifted the base causing a large crack on west facing wall and cracking the floor slab. Proposal: To inspect both shelters for any immediate maintenance. To repoint, repaint and repair as necessary. Cllr Robinson offered to look into whether grants were available, either from LCC or elsewhere. In this regard, it was noted that the cost of the full replacement of one shelter was likely to cost at least the equivalent of a year’s precept. 

Date of future meetings at 19:30 in the Village Hall
