Did you know that whilst you may think your small sofa loving pet wouldn’t hurt a fly they can be termed as Dangerous Dogs under the 2014 Act of Parliament?
Any member of the public who is frightened and scared that your dog may bite them could potentially find it has been reported to the Police who will then take action against you.
If you have a dog no matter what size from Chihuahua to a Rottweiler please keep it on the lead especially
in the Cow Lane area of Womersley and the Playing Field.
We have now received information of two dog attacks and are working with the Dog Warden to carefully monitor the situation.

COP26 should trigger rethink over plans to move millions of tonnes of industrial waste from Britain's biggest disposal site, campaigners say
A judicial review has been granted as EP UK Investments plan to remove more than 40,000 lorry loads of pulverised fuel ash a year, for the next 25 years, from a site near Selby in North Yorkshire.

How many times have Parish Councils question why we are empowered to represent our communities and yet Parish Councils ARE NOT BEING LISTENED TO especially about Planning decisions made in our own village?
Whitley, Cridling Stubbs, Womersley and Heck Parish Councils
have untied to challenge North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) planning process and the decision on Gale Common Planning Application. We are taking our case to High Court Judicial Review (JR). This may seem like Whitley’s problem and it does not concern our village but you are so wrong! Every planning decision on industrialisation or housing development in all our villages affects us! Your village may be next!
We need all the backing and support from our communities to get our voices heard. Please remember SDC will cease to exist soon and all decisions will be made from NYCC.
Our Parish Councils need to be heard and given more power and that is why we must win the Judicial Review and WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!
