42 houses.jpg

19/01126/OUT | OUTLINE - Erection of 42 dwellings and associated infrastructure (All Matters Reserved) | Land West Of 3 Station Lane Holme Upon Spalding Moor East Riding Of Yorkshire YO43 4AL

The above planning application was heard by the Western Area Planning Sub-Committee on Tue 23 July and the decision was that the application was UNANIMOUSLY REFUSED.


As per the recommendations of the Officers, the adopted Local Plan did not include this site as part of a number of allocations in HOSM and also excluded this land from development limits.

Many thanks to Cllr Victoria Aitken for speaking on behalf of the Residents that objected to this planning application.

GLADMAN'S 2nd application, dated 1 March 2019 was UNANIMOUSLY REFUSED on  8 August 2019 (see right).

19/00748/STOUT | OUTLINE - Erection of 175 dwellings (including up to 25% affordable housing) with associated infrastructure, landscaping, open space and with exception of the main site access off Back Lane following demolition of existing agricultural sheds (Access to be considered) | Land South East Of The Croft 44 Back Lane Holme Upon Spalding Moor East Riding Of Yorkshire YO43 4AW

The above planning application was heard today by the Planning Committee at ERYC. The decision was that the application was UNANIMOUSLY REFUSED. As per officers recommendation. Not allocated land. Outside the village building limit. The village already has a new housing allocation and do not want this to grow further without due care and consideration.

Again, many thanks to Cllr Victoria Aitken for speaking on behalf of the Residents that objected to this planning application.

YES, you read it correctly, the ERYC did say “NO” to 80,000 tonnes of industrialised waste processing at Park Farm, on Thursday 28 March 2019.

However, the Holme BioEnergy Ltd company already submitted an “Appeal” for the previously UNANIMOUSLY "REFUSED" application of September 2018, on 26 March 2019. 

DEADLINE DATE for written representations was 30 APRIL 2019.  The Appeal Decision has now been made (see UPDATE 09/07/2019).

6 votes FOR,

for a 30k tonne per year AD PLANT at PARK FARM.

Decision of the outcome based on the information provided and the recommendation of the Planning Officers (ie if it adheres to planning law etc).  "National interest" is seemingly, more important.

UPDATE (09/07/2019):Appeal Ref: APP/E2001/W/19/3223211 Park Farm, Market Weighton Road, Holme-upon-Spalding Moor YO43 4AG

It is with great sadness we inform you that after a site visit made on 18 June 2019 by A. McCormack BSc (Hons) MRTPI, an Inspector appointed by the Secretary of State, the “Decision for the Appeal” has been ALLOWED today and the AD Plant will be going ahead.

On behalf of HOLME, regardless of the outcome, we would like to say a BIG “THANK YOU” to the Holme Front Group and our Ward Councillors Victoria Aitken, Linda Bayram and Nigel Wilkinson for all your efforts in fighting this.

Once again, to those few key people in HOLME that worked hard on fighting this planning application, some since it began 4 years ago, please accept our heartfelt gratitude. Our thanks too to EVERYONE that took the time to send in your comments and objections and for your support.

"The Planning Balance
28. The proposed development would have public benefit in providing a source of renewable energy and this is supported in national and local policy. Furthermore, it would provide economic and environmental benefits consistent with sustainable development objectives set out in the Framework. These are significant material considerations to which I give substantial weight. However, the Framework is clear that all renewable energy and low carbon schemes are not to be supported regardless of any harm that they may cause. Therefore, it is necessary to ensure that the impact of the proposal is acceptable in all respects.

29. From the evidence, I find that the proposal’s contribution to reducing climate change would be reasonable. It would increase the supply of ‘green’ energy into the national grid whilst reducing the consumption of fossil fuels. I note concerns raised about the potential harmful impact of the proposed alterations. However, I find these matters to have limited support in the evidence provided. As such, in my view, the proposed alterations would not be substantively detrimental to the character and visual amenity of the surrounding area in terms of location, scale and appearance. Therefore, having carefully considered all relevant matters before me, I find that the public benefits of the proposal outweigh the harm identified.

30. I have had regard to the conditions suggested by the Council in its Statement and those attached to the original planning permission Ref: 16/03709/CM as well as subsequently approved non-material amendments. Where necessary, and in the interests of conciseness and enforceability, I have altered the conditions to better reflect the relevant parts of the Planning Practice Guidance (PPG).

31. The PPG makes clear that decision notices for the grant of planning permission under Section 73 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 (the Act) should also repeat the relevant conditions form the original planning permission unless they have already been discharged. As I have no substantive information before me about the status of the other conditions imposed on the original planning permission, I have imposed all conditions which I consider remain relevant. If any conditions have been discharged, it is a matter to be addressed by the parties.

32. The Act1 states that planning permission must not be granted under Section 73 to the extent that it has effect to change a condition subject to which a previous planning permission was granted by extending the time within which a scheme must be started. This is confirmed by the PPG. As such, the time condition imposed for this proposed scheme reflects the remaining implementation period relating to the original planning permission Ref: 16/03709/CM.

33. Condition 2 reflects the updated plans submitted by the appellant with regard to the proposed amendments to the approved scheme and Condition 11 includes the amendment from ‘water’ to ‘liquid waste’ with regard to feedstock for the anaerobic digester. Having carefully considered all other conditions attached to the original planning permission, I find the reasons provided to remain reasonable and justified and that each condition passes the relevant tests. Accordingly, these conditions have been attached to this Decision. I have also imposed two conditions relating to odour management and the provision of more detail for traffic movements. These are reasonable and necessary for reasons of amenity and highway safety

34. It is necessary that the requirements of Conditions 3 and 14 are agreed prior to the development hereby permitted starting to ensure an acceptable development for reasons of enabling initial archaeological evaluation, conserving and protecting heritage assets and for highway safety. Accordingly, I note that these conditions are agreed between the Council and the appellant

35. For the above reasons, and having had regard to all other matters raised, I conclude that the appeal should succeed.

In light of the re-emergence of MOMO (that has been around for some time) ..... "WHAT PARENTS NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MOMO" (see post)

ULTIMATELY, any device "parental control" settings should be set by the parents......"This will help to restrict the types of content that your child can view, as well as help you to monitor their activity. In addition to this, it's vital that you are aware of your device and account settings to ensure your child's utmost safety. For example, on YouTube you can turn off "suggested auto-play" on videos to stop your child from viewing content that they have not directly selected."

"Momo challenge: The anatomy of a hoax.

What should parents do?


Police have suggested that rather than focusing on the specific momo meme, parents could use the opportunity to educate children about internet safety , as well as having an open conversation about what children are accessing.


"This is merely a current, attention-grabbing example of the minefield that is online communication for kids," wrote the Police Service of Northern Ireland, in a Facebook post.


Broadcaster Andy Robertson, who creates videos online as Geek Dad, said in a podcast that parents should not "share warnings that perpetuate and mythologise the story".


"A better focus is good positive advice for children, setting up technology appropriately and taking an interest in their online interactions," he said.


To avoid causing unnecessary alarm, parents should also be careful about sharing news articles with other adults that perpetuate the myth." (BBC News dated 28 February 2019)(LINK to scource of this article: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/amp/technology-47393510
