Planned road improvement works along B1230, Main Road, Newport

ERYC are pleased to inform you that road improvement works are due to commence along the B1230 Main Road, Newport between Peturia Way junction (near the A63 junction) and Mill Lane junction (St Stephen’s Church). The works are scheduled to commence on Monday 11 July and will last for up to 9 weeks, weather permitting.  To reduce the disruption caused to residents and businesses the works have been phased. Please see the attached phase plan and residents’ letter.

The work will consist of deep resurfacing works to the existing carriageway, patching repairs, surface water drainage improvements and minor footpath works during mainly daytime working hours (8am – 5pm) under temporary traffic lights. Initially resurfacing work will also take place between Peturia Way and Wallingfen Lane junctions on nights (between 7pm and 6am) for up to eight shifts. 

To reduce the carbon footprint of this scheme, low temperature asphalt will be used, which reduces the amount of energy needed to manufacture the material, and allows roads to be reopened more quickly than traditional materials like hot asphalt.  

ERYC would like to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused by these works.

Newport Annual Parish and Annual Council Meeting

Residents are warmly invited to attend the Newport Annual Parish Meeting to be held on Tuesday 10th May 2022 at Newport Primary School (The Hall entrance) at 6pm – all village residents are welcome.

Individuals from each of the Newport Community Groups will have the opportunity to share with local residents details of the activities undertaken by their group over the last year and planned for the coming year. I have included some further information below with regards to the relevant legislation. This meeting only hears and meets the business of the electors.

The Annual Parish meeting is a meeting held of the electors. Local Government Act 1972 14 (1) states the Parish meeting of a parish shall assemble annually on some day between the 1st March and the 1st June. It is not a Council meeting, it does not act on issues or items of the Parish Council. Only electors on the electoral register can vote on any item at this meeting.

The Agenda has to be sent out with 7 working days’ notice is chaired by the chairman of the Parish Council. The parish having a separate Parish Council means that the chairman of the Parish Council shall preside. (Local Government Act 1972 16 & 17 (1) & (2)) A question can be asked by the voters or a poll called. (Local Government Act 1972 18 (1-6))

The Newport Annual Council Meeting will take place on the same evening starting at 7.15pm.

Access to the meeting room is through the main gate on the Village Hall side of the school and to the rear of the building.

New website helps residents stay independent in their homes for longer

A modern and vibrant website has been designed to help keep residents independent in their homes longer and to improve the customer experience when seeking information about adult social care. For more information or to view the new website and give feedback, visit or email yourlifeyourway@eastriding.gov.uk

Your Life, Your Way – Home (yourlifeyourway.uk)

Adult social care is changing the way the council offers support and advice and a new operating model is being delivered through Your Life, Your Way, a programme designed to drive the best outcomes for residents and ensure the right support is delivered at the right time. It will also enable the council to manage demand within the system whilst effectively managing resources across adult social care for the people who need them.

Finding the right advice and information is also important for individuals who care for a relative or friend and it is recognised that East Riding carers also need timely and bespoke information in order to support them in their caring role.

Councillor Kerri Harold, portfolio holder for adult and carer services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We have developed the new website to provide early information, advice about community support and services and how to get help from the council.

“It promotes choice and control and helping people to maximise their strengths and live their life well.

“The website will also provide information and self-help tools that residents regularly ask our front-line and customer service teams for, therefore reducing the number of contacts we receive regarding requests for information and signposting.

“Providing this through our newly-designed website aims for a better customer experience and to ensure our assessment teams are focussing on those individuals who have eligible care and support needs.

“So we are simply improving our pathways to help residents to access information about adult social care and to determine what support they may need – whether it’s preventative or longer-term support.

“We would really like to receive your feedback so we can continuously improve this new and exciting resource.”

It is hoped residents will find the website user-friendly, easy to navigate and that it promotes better understanding of the options available to the and reinforces the council’s prevention and early intervention offer, strengthening the council’s duties under the Care Act 2014 to provide information and advice to local residents.

The website is in what’s called the ‘Beta’ phase at the moment; this means it is live and can be tested to gather feedback from residents to improve it further.

Adult social care’s new website includes more online tools that residents can use, such as a financial calculator and a community directory of support services.

Bus Service 55 – New Timetable

ERYC have confirmed the outcome of the tenders the Council invited for a bus service to replace the service being withdrawn by East Yorkshire Buses. 

The contract has been awarded to East Yorkshire Buses, however the timetable will be significantly different to that currently provided. The new timetable is available via the link above. ERYC have been able to retain an off-peak service, hourly between Elloughton and Gilberdyke, two-hourly between Gilberdyke and Goole, very similar to the current off-peak service. This will operate Monday to Saturday. This is an improvement on the current Saturday service between Gilberdyke and Goole. The new timetable will commence on Monday 11th April 2022.
