Harrogate Rural Safety Scheme – Mill lane parking bay project
Works on Mill Lane are still on hold, no new start date has been given.  We will advise of further information when received. 

We are waiting for Highways to get back to us about other issues such as an extra grit bin which we have requested to be sited on Mill Lane, and a response regarding a village sign survey which took place in November from which we are hoping to have signs improved in the village.  Also the area which floods in heavy rain on the road out of the village towards Wormald Green has been reported to Highways. 

Royal Wedding
We would like to hear from you if you would like to celebrate the Royal Wedding.  Is there any village interest to do any sort of celebration to mark it?  Any suggestions or ideas are welcome; please contact the clerk.  

The LDF are still accepting objections and communications for Rural areas; if you have not responded yet there is still time to submit your views.  Further information can be found at  Please submit your comments using the consultation questionnaire which can downloaded from the website, complete it and email to or post to the LDF FREEPOST address (shown on the questionnaire).  It is really important that your comments and views are heard.
