Missed bin collections a problem again this week

After catching up with the backlog of full bins on Saturday, vehicle failures meant that garden waste collections were missed in Dringhouses, Woodthorpe, Wheldrake and Copmanthorpe yesterday (Monday). The Council has promised to try to empty the bins today.

The Council web site also reports isolated cases of roads being missed because of poor parking and road works

There is still no word from the Council on when new, more reliable, vehicles will be rolled out.

Bid to give more protection to pubs, shops, woods etc.

The York Council is to consider several requests to have local amenities added to the list of  assets of community value

The applications concern;

  • The Wenlock Arms Public House,

    Jubilee pub

    Jubilee Hotel

  • White Rose House,
  • Costcutter Shop, Wheldrake,
  • Wheldrake Woods.
  • The Minster Inn Public House (Guildhall) &
  • The Jubilee Hotel (Holgate)

If added to the list, the designation would mean that the local community would have an opportunity to raise the necessary funding to purchase, should the assets come onto the open market.

A decision on the listing is expected to be made on 11th July
