Anti Social Behaviour Report from ERYC

Please find links to the latest report of anti social behaviour in Howedenshire, which include Gilberdyke.  In light of the apparent increase in ABS in the village, the Parish Council will be asking our local Police Liaison Officer to attend a forthcoming Parish Meeting to discuss how this matter is being dealt with.

We shall advise residents when this is arranged and you  can either attend the meeting or advise the Parish Council of anything you want raising with the Police

The report can be found by click here Howdenshire

Cleaning improvements in the village

A new cleaning schedule will be introduced as of 1st December 2020 in the village in order to improve the general tidiness and cleanliness of the village.  The key features of this are:

  • Cleaning will be carried out on a daily basis, ensuring there is no build up of litter
  • Cleaning will be split into zones with each of the street cleaners having responsibility for designated areas.  If residents have any concerns about cleaning, please contact the Parish Clerk with location and details of the concern and these will be addressed.  The cleaning zones can be found by clicking here Cleaning Zones as of 1st December 2020
  • The playing field and playgrounds will be included in the cleaning schedule going forward.
