SEWERS

Could you please contact the Chairman, Howard Mountain on kmldpc@btinternet.com with details of any problems with either the foul or surface water sewers so that these can be referred to Yorkshire Water or the Highways Department for investigation.

THE FORMER HENRY JENKINS PUBLIC HOUSE

The six month moratorium period under the ACV process ended on January 4, 2018. A bid of £180,000 was made by the HJCC which was rejected by the owner, who is now free to sell the property to anyone else. It is understood that a provisional sale of the flat and car park to a third party has been agreed, subject to the decision of the planning appeal in respect of the proposed housing redevelopment. The hearing took place on January 31 and a decision will be known shortly. 

YOUTH CLUB

A Youth Club is currently being set up within Kirkby Malzeard by North Yorkshire Youth aimed at youngsters between 9 and 13 years. A number of local people have volunteered their services but as always more would be welcomed so if you are interested please contact Vicki on vicki@nyy.org.uk It is hoped that the club will be up and running by April.

LOCAL PLAN

Another consultation period is currently underway - please see the Local Plan page of this website for further details.

BROADBAND

The Parish Council contacted SuperFast NorthYorkshire in January 2017 in order to obtain an up to date picture of the roll out of fibre Broadband within the Parish and this is an extract of the reply received:

I have checked our maps (which are available on our website http://www.superfastnorthyorkshire.com/) and Kirkby Malzeard and Laverton's telephone cabinets have now been upgraded to fibre. All you need to do is contact your service provider and ask for an upgrade to fibre. 

Dallowgill has not yet been included in SFNY’s roll out plan. However, SFNY have recently secured additional funding which we expect will be used to extend superfast broadband coverage to further premises across North Yorkshire, this is known as Phase 3. This will be awarded in the Spring of 2017 and run until the end of 2019. If there are any specific premises that are unable to order fibre please let me know and I will investigate on their behalf (I would need telephone number and full address).

If you are in an area where fibre broadband is said to be available and you are unable to obtain it, please let us know and we will follow it up with SFNY.

There is also a subsidy available in some instances if your download speed is less than 2mbps - for further information click this link;http://basicbroadbandchecker.culture.gov.uk/

MOBILE SIGNAL

OFCOM have a useful checker which enables you to find out which provider best serves your property - this is the link: http://checker.ofcom.org.uk/mobile-coverage/ 

Planning consent (17/02370/FUL) was granted in August for a new mast to be erected in place of the existing one on Kirkby Moor Road, which should improve the signal in the area.
