Auckley Show

Council congratulates the Auckley Show Committee for staging another successful event at Riverside Park on 17th August. The Show provided a varied and interesting programme of activities to suit every age group including some very talented entertainers. A large amount of planning is required to organise a function of this nature, and the local community really appreciate the efforts of everyone who contributed to making this an enjoyable event.

Update on Road Works at Hurst Lane, Auckley

There is currently one lane open with traffic signals on the stretch of road leading from the sand quarry to the railway bridge at Hurst Lane. This partial closure will allow work to continue on the roundabout giving access to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. There will be 2 periods of night-time complete closures (Monday to Friday nights only) 1. 19.00 hrs. Monday 23rd September 2019 until 0600hrs. Saturday 28th September 2019 2. 19.00hrs. Monday 30th September until 06.00hrs. on Saturday 5th October 2019, or until works are completed

Possible Alternative Venues for Council Meetings

Council is currently looking into the possibility of finding a venue around the Hurst Lane/Hayfield Lane area in order to hold some meetings in this part of the Parish, making it more inclusive for nearby residents who may wish to attend and discover what is happening in Auckley. Efforts so far have been unsuccessful, but we are continuing to pursue this matter. Any suggestions from residents would be welcome.

New Recreation Park, Hayfield Lane

Work has begun on laying the foundations of the new Hayfield Park and we look forward to seeing its completion before Christmas. The Park will provide much-needed recreational facilities for the area.

ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES

Dog Fouling

Progress is continuing to be made on the matter of dog fouling. New signs have been erected and ‘Clean It Up’ doggie signs painted on footways to remind the public that it is an offence to allow dogs to foul the highway and footways. Please remember the public rights of way along the River Torne bank, Eastfield Lane and Bell Butts Lane, etc. are NOT excluded from the dog fouling regulations. Community First Wardens regularly monitor the village and will fine offenders. If a resident identifies a problem please contact Community First (tel. 01302 736000), or a Parish Councillor.

Responsible dog owners always carry a plastic bag with them and deposit dog waste in one of the bins provided. A new bin for dog waste has been installed on the path leading from Common Lane to Rossmoor Close, and there are 3 further bins on Riverside Park.

Dog waste bins on the Hayfield Estate are situated at the following locations:

Oak Tree Avenue
Fir Tree Avenue
Area between Apple Grove and Lime Avenue
Area between Hawthorne Road and Holly Road
Area between Sycamore Drive and Hazel Avenue
Poplar Way near junction with Sycamore Drive 

DMBC's Neighbourhood Services - dog fouling awareness competition.

DMBC's Neighbourhood Services recently organised a competition for the pupils of the two junior schools in Auckley Parish to raise awareness of the problems associated with dog fouling in the village, and involved the children drawing or painting a poster for this purpose.  The Parish Council donated funds to provide a 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize for each school.
The two schools involved were Auckley Junior and Infants' School and Hayfield Lane Primary School.
