Some 460 Gilberdyke residents from over 350 households responded to the recent survey regarding the ERYC plans for significant housing and industrial developments in our community. 453 supported the Parish Council’s position, whilst only 7 residents did not.
The results and comments are to be passed on to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council as part of the consultation process.
“I would like to thank the number of people who took the time to respond and support the Parish Council, it's very reassuring, as this is probably the most important issue facing our community during the next 10 to 15 years. It sends out a clear message to the ERYC that enough is enough, and that there is very little consent for any further housing and industrial development in Gilberdyke until services and infrastructure are improved. It also shows that local people want to be part of local decision-making, and those in power who ignore this, do so at their peril”
“In the case of Gilberdyke, there have been many development planning decisions in the past that have left the community with many problems, some of which, especially heavy traffic movements, are shared with our neighbours in Newport. These will be compounded if the ERYC plans, as detailed in the LDF smaller settlements document go ahead. This issue will be high on the agenda for the recently formed joint working group, which consists of members of both Gilberdyke and Newport Parish Councils”.
