Cowling Parish Council - Christmas lights at Cowling.
Despite our best efforts, there will be no Christmas lights at Cowling this year. It was decided by the last council that the new village hall would be finished for this year - it has been three years in construction - and that the hall would be the best place to illuminate.
Unfortunately the hall is not yet finished, and the dreaded Christmas elf (Elf n' Safety) has decreed that our old lights are not fit, that unless the lights are new low voltage ones they have to be 10 feet above the ground minimum; that they have to be installed by a professional electrician; that we cannot use concrete lamp posts for hanging illuminations...etc. etc. etc.
Contacting a professional company in October told us that we were miles too late too organise anything, that most companies have such things arranged by March, and that this year was impractical at that stage.
Accordingly we've arranged to go through the whole thing again in January, and get some prices and ideas. Prices would appear to be in the thousands, so if anyone, or any business, would like to sponsor the council and perhaps arrange a better display by doing that then we're all in favour. For example in Sutton the lights are not organised by the parish council, but by a separate village committee.
Meanwhile we can only promise that next year things will be different.

Cowling Parish Council - Affordable housing for Cowling?.
At Decemberís council meeting a Mr. Wilman from Craven district council had been invited by our district councillor to tell us about a possible planned affordable housing scheme for Cowling. Mr. Wilman is Craven district councilís affordable housing officer.
The site proposed is Acre Mill, adjacent to the new build presently being developed by Skipton Properties.
The developer is a company called ĎFirebird Homesí this is not a Housing Association, but a Limited Company, and hence bound by different rules. The differences between Housing Associations and Limited Companies are many, too many for this article!

For more information including housing plans see the >

Cowling Parish Council - Ridge Mill Bridge
Letter sent to NYCC concerning Ridge Mill Bridge

The Parish Council met 1st December, and I can advise that members of the public were there, and the topic which received intense scrutiny was the progress and repairs to the bridge.

It was advised at the meeting that the damage to the bridge was caused in February 2008, but that repair will not take place until April 2009 at the earliest, after a feasibility study costing some £2000, at which stage when the relevant decision is made the repairs will be instructed at a cost between £100,000 and £120,000, or possibly more. This costing has been questioned when the style, size and type, even location of the bridge has not been decided.

The Parish Council are keenly aware that this is a bridge of considerable importance to the village, when available, it is used constantly throughout the day time by dog walkers, ramblers, serious walkers and by the village people for all sorts of reasons and as such is an amenity which Cowling must not be allowed to either loose or be without for any great amount of time.

Whilst NYCC may wish to look at organising a consultation with the all interested parties after the feasibility study, the Parish Councillors and the Parishioners have only one wish, and that is restore the bridge, so that it can be used as soon as ever possible.

Cowling is probably as far away from Northallerton as it is possible to get by distance, and the feeling within the Parish is that distance also suggests it is remote, when work within the Parish is required. There is a resentment that NYCC taxes are being paid and now is the time for recognition of the contribution paid, and restore a bridge which has such an important status within the community.

The Parish Council meets again on 5th January, 2009, and by that meeting it is hoped that a report can be given that progress, of a measurable nature has taken place.

The matter of Ridge Mill Bridge will remain on the agenda of not only the Parish Council, but the District Council, the CowlingWeb, the Bay Horse, and the Newsletter.

In view of the above, I look forward to receiving the response of NYCC, for circulation to the public of Cowling.

Should any members of the public have a viewpoint, please contact the county councillor, Mark Wheeler.

Cowling Parish Council - Pedestrian crossing near Ling Crag Gardens and Collinge Road.
This has met with a tremendous storm of apathy, so working on the principal that NYCC will not want to spend money if people arenít bothered, is unlikely to happen.
