RSPB- Calling local Farmers and landowners.

The RSPB has contacted the Parish Council asking for local farmers and landowners to contact them for those that are interested in helping nature thrive on their land.

The Yorkshire Wolds and Coast is one of the best places for wildlife in teh UK and has huge potential to provide even more homes for important farmland birds, as well as other animals from butterflies and bees to hares and hedgehogs. As a result, RSPB Conservation advisor Chris Tomson is offering free advice and support to anyone in the area who wants to manager their land in a more wildlife-friendly way. As well as advice, the RSPB is also offering farmers in the Yorkshire Wolds and Coast area free farmland bird surveys. These stock takes will show what wildlife makes its home on a farm and, when required repeated at a later date, will reveal how a farmer’s efforts are producing real results for wildlife.

Farmers interested in chatting to Chris about giving nature a home on their land can call him on 07900 164 601 or email him at

SCAMS – beware.

The Parish Council has been notified of scams that are operating in the area.  One scam that residents in the East Riding have been receiving is a postcard stating that a parcel could not be delivered to them. When they ring up the telephone number given on the postcard there is no-one to answer the call but the caller is charged an extotionate amount of money when they next receive their phone bill. If you have been the victim of any such scams you can report them to the Trading Standards department at the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Operation FIDO

The Parish Council is appealing for help in forming a committee to help raise funds to commission a unique WW2 memorial for Carnaby Airfield. The Parish Council has been in talks with a local artist to make a lifesize structure of a Lancaster Bomber. Although still in its infancy we are progressing slowly.  We still need to gain permissions to erect the memorial on land on the airfield.  Providing that we are granted planning permission we will need to raise thousands of pounds to commission the artwork, and the installation of it and car parking facilities will be needed. If you would like to be involved in this fantastic project please contact us. You can contact us at

Breaking news! – ERYC to change their plans about siting a Gypsy and Traveller Site in Carnaby

Carnaby Parish Council has long waited to hear the good news that the ERYC proposes to changes its plans to site a Gypsy and Traveller Site in the village.  After thousands of objections about the new draft plan, the ERYC are proposing several changes, including the removal of the proposal to site a Gypsy and Traveller Site in Carnaby (CAR20). Another site, BRID51, has been identified as being more suitable to provide the required pitches. More information about the new proposals can be viewed on the Council’s website cabinet/#agenda-and-minutes.

Peter Naylor – Artist – attends PC meeting to discuss memorial plans

Peter Naylor, the famous artist of 158 Bomber Command memorial fame (Lisset memorial) attended this month’s Parish Council meeting to discuss plans to erect a WW2 memorial on Carnaby Airfield. The plans are ambitious but very exciting. Peter’s idea is to build a full scale, skeletal model of a Lancaster Bomber,and to place it at the end of the runway as if it is just about to land.  The slides that Peter showed are extremely impressive and the memorial would be seen from a distance.  This project is in its infancy and there is a long way to go. We need to obtain planning permission first and, if granted, then to raise some serious money to fund it.  The Parish Council would therefore like some help and support with this project and for a special committee to be formed. If you would like to help in any way please contact either your local Parish Councillor or send us an email.  We look forward to hearing from you.

Door Stoppers – No Cold Calling Scheme

Parish Councillors have been made aware of the increase in “cold calling” from businesses and other organisations. Many residents find this intrusive and annoying and would like it to be stopped. There is a scheme run by ERYC called  “Door Stoppers” that stops “cold callers”. The Parish Council is looking into the scheme. It will need the full cooperation of residents to enable this scheme to sanctioned. More details of this scheme will follow shortly.

Speed Sign

Carnaby is shortly to have a speed sign installed in the village at the north end. This will hopefully slow down the traffic passing through the village, and make it easier to cross the road. The sign has been ordered and should be delivered by the end of August 2013.
