  2. From tonight Sutton Park will be closed until further notice.

    The decision was made following a weekend where numbers of people ignored government advice to practice 'social distancing'.

    The park is not large and does not lend itself to helping with social distancing advice.

    The park closure will be monitored closely, but will remain in place until government advice states that it can be safely re-opened.

  4. Sutton-in-Craven Telephone Kiosk – High Street/Main Street

    Sutton-in-Craven Parish Council are considering purchasing the High Street/Main Street phone box under the BT ‘Adopt a Kiosk’ scheme. As part of the scheme, the phone will be removed.

    The Parish Council are looking for someone to manage the facility.

    Are there any community groups, charities, schools etc who would be interested in using the facility?

    The phone box could be used in a wide variety of ways such as an Art Gallery, Book Swap, Toy Exchange, Recipe Exchange etc.

    The cost of repairs and repainting has been estimated at approximately £2,500. The Parish Council will support this with a donation of £1,000 and advise were further funding can be obtained.

    If you are interested, please contact Sutton Parish Council.   www.suttonincravenpc.org.uk

  6. Consultation on CCTV in licensed vehicles (Taxis)

    Craven District Council is conducting a consultation to seek the views, of the trade as well as members of the public, and a wide range of partner agencies and stakeholders, regarding the implementation of CCTV within Hackney Carriage and Private Hire Vehicles.
