Anaerobic Digester Plant proposal at Holme on Spalding Moor

Anaerobic Digester Plant proposal at Park Farm, Holme on Spalding Moor

To all local Parish Councils.

I am contacting you as a strong opposition member to the Anaerobic Digester Plant proposal at Park Farm, Holme on Spalding Moor.  We have had a continual 3 year battle with "get rich quick" companies wanting to build a huge AD Plant right on the outskirts  of our beautiful village. However this AD plant will affect all surrounding villages with smells, heavy increase in HGV lorries passing through.

This proposed  VARIATION will increase the tonnage of waste from the approved 30k to 80k!! This is a significant increase of 166% and is actually greater than the original application of 70k, which was refused by ERYC. This increase now will take the AD Plant to a huge Industrial size, non agricultural looking  monstrosity which can be seen for miles and will be working 24/7/365.

AD plants do have a number of issues, one of which is odour, there have been numerous reports of residents near such plants be affected by the smell. Prevalent winds may result in the odour having an impact on your village life, so we ask that you taken action.

Holme BioEnergy Ltd (nothing to do with Holme itself) are trying to sneak a larger plant, with more buildings (that are bigger than the consented plans), along with much higher traffic movements, without Planning Consent!

Our Parish Council have backed our opposition but we need more support from our neighbours please. We ask for your support as the East Riding Councillors don’t seem to listen to our concerns about this.  We need high numbers of complaints, from all villages surrounding this plant, so the council can see our determination to stop further development.

Please encourage your village to write to:

Please do this NOW!!

Market Weighton Police Report May 2018

Wolds Weighton Update for May 2018

1. Crime and ASB

TFMV – Theft from motor vehicle
TOMV – Theft of motor vehicle
ASB – Anti-social behaviour

Detailed crime and ASB data for your area can be obtained by visiting and following the ‘Find your Neighbourhood’ link, also details of any particular crimes or series of crimes of note e.g. serious assaults, run of Hanoi burglaries

2. Community Priorities

  1. Market Weighton Town Centre area (Evenings):
Throughout May we are to continue our high visibility patrols of the Market Weighton Town Centre area to deter potential anti-social behaviour (ASB). These patrols include regular checks on the High Street and peripheral areas of Londesborough Road Car Park, Scotts Croft Memorial Park, the town council building area and the area surrounding the Giant Bradley statue (periodic reports of youths causing annoyance). Criminal offenders will be challenged robustly, arrested or reported for summons. Penalty Notices for Disorder or warning letters may be used in appropriate cases however, those who offend should expect to be arrested and dealt with if their anti social behaviour amounts to criminal offending.

  1. Youths Causing Annoyance (Evenings):
Officers will continue patrols in the areas of Aspen Close, the park, the monkey run & football field due to regular reports of low level anti-social behaviour. Anyone caught engaging in such activities will be dealt with jointly with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

  1. Vehicle related nuisance
To reduce anti-social behaviour (ASB) and its impact on the communities within the Wolds Weighton area as well as taking positive action against offenders who cause ASB with their vehicles.  Hotspot areas will be checked regularly and any drivers using their cars to cause alarm or distress will be considered for warnings and possible seizure of their vehicles under Section 59 of the Police Reform Act.  

3. Crime Reduction Advice
Burglary is by and large an opportunistic crime, with burglars looking for a home that gives them the easiest way of committing their crime undetected and with the fewest obstacles to negotiate.  In many cases burglars do not need to use any force to gain entry which can be achieved via an insecure window or door.  So how can you keep your home and property safe?
1 in 3 burglaries are via an open door or window
Always lock your front and back doors and if the window is open for ventilation and you would consider it easy to access from outside then close it whenever you leave the room - it only takes seconds to climb in and steal something.
Going on Holiday
If you are going away remember to cancel the milk or newspapers. 
Don’t make it obvious to burglars you are away; leave your curtains or blinds open – nothing reveals that a house is unoccupied so much as curtains drawn during the day. If possible ask a trusted neighbour to close your curtains in the evening, hanging a pair of thick net curtains when you go on holiday will make it harder for the opportunist to see inside and decide whether you have anything they want to steal.
If you don’t already have any, then consider getting timer switches and setting your lights both downstairs and upstairs to come on at different times throughout the day/evening.  There are low cost fake TV devices available which make it look as if someone is home and watching TV due to the multiple random colour led lights which it projects into the room.
Again a trusted neighbour collecting your post and possibly parking their car on your drive, whilst you are away will add to your security.
Don’t talk about your planned holiday on social media – you don’t know who may be reading your comments or who they might tell.
Security around the home
Make your home looks occupied by leaving a radio on or a light on a timer switch to make the house sound and look as if someone is at home, even if you are out.
Never leave your spare keys in a hiding place such as under a doormat, in a flowerpot or inside a letterbox.
Make sure you use a burglar alarm (if you have one) every time you leave the house. Don’t leave valuables on view or on window sills and keep your car keys hidden out of sight - consider taking them up to bed with you at night.  If you conceal valuables in your home, avoid obvious hiding places such as your sock drawer or in the bottom of a wardrobe.
If your property is stolen make sure you can describe it to the Police by keeping a record and photographs of makes, models and unique serial numbers etc. You can also register all your details onto  This is a web based property records system, endorsed and searchable by all UK Police Forces and second hand dealers.

Security in the garden
Secure your garden with a fence which is made difficult to climb by adding trellis and spiky climbing plants and add a key lockable gate.
Don’t leave tools or ladders in the garden to assist burglars and secure your wheelie bins away from your house, fences and walls.
Dusk to dawn low wattage outside lights will put off the opportunist thief all year round as well as welcome the householders home during the night. An additional movement activated floodlight especially at the side and rear or your property can unnerve burglars and warns occupants and neighbours of their approach.
What should I do if I see something suspicious?

To report anything to the Police ring 101, if it’s a crime in progress then use 999. You can give information anonymously by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. They won’t ask your name just what you know and you could assist with helping make your neighbourhood a safer and more secure place in which to live.
