A new website provides information on the activities of the Parish Council, including agendas and minutes of meetings, annual reports, financial information and contact details for the councillors and clerk.
Eastoft Parish Council is an independent local authority served by eight Parish Councillors many of whom are long serving members of the council.
This Parish Council wish to advise you that a home for vulnerable children is now operating in the village. The property was a residential property and they now have concerns over the siting of this children’s home centrally in the village, within close proximity to the school and a busy main road.
The Cambian Group Plc purchased The Shires, The Old Moorings in Eastoft in April of this year and have now applied for a lawful development certificate for a proposed children’s home. Details can be found on the North Lincolnshire Council website under application number PA/2014/1071. www.northlincs.gov.uk/planning where comments can be left on the application. An article appeared in the Epworth Bells last Thursday saying “that the home will cater for four youngsters aged between 12 and 18 years of age”.
A meeting was held on Monday 20 October 2014 at 7.30 in the village hall where the manager of the home was invited to attend but apologised due to late notice of the meeting. Our two ward Councillors John Briggs and Trevor Barker were in attendance together with PC Dean Southam and PCSO Paul Fearon. After a full discussion the two Ward Councillors invited anyone to email, or ring them, with their concerns about this home, it will not house children from the North Lincolnshire area. You can also address any letters to me for forwarding to North Lincolnshire Council or deliver them to any parish councillor in the village.
