OUR PLANS FOR 2015

We've devised a cunning two-stage campaign to see all of Lazenby Bank in public ownership and a landmark Eston Miners' Memorial on The Nab (full details)

14.1.15: AUTHORITIES VISIT JOYRIDING HOTSPOTS

The Police & Crime Commissioner Barry Coppinger plus representatives from the Police, Fire Brigade, RCBC Engineering Dept and the NFU were given a guided tour by local farmers of the hotspots used by joyriders to gain access Eston hills. FOEH member Kester Marsh attended and told us "a series of possible solutions were discussed for Flatts Lane, Eston, Lazenby and the Guisborough Rd. These included ditches and banks, lockable gates and barriers. Due to the lack of inclusion in the Council's current plans, a senior representative from the Engineering Dept. admitted, it could take up to two years to complete. But I believe that due to the good turn out of multi-agencies as well as farmers and NFU, something positive will be carried out soon".
10.1.15:
ANOTHER PLOT SOLD
We have recieved confirmation that LOT 3 of Lazenby Bank has been bought by a nature conservation trust. They are not going public just yet but we have been in touch with them and make no mistake it is a positive development. For the record, LOT 3 is a 22-acre plot of mature woodland at the top of the golf course track above conker wood.
8.1.15:
FUNDS ALLOCATED TO
STOP JOYRIDERS

Cleveland Police and Crime commissioner Barry Coppinger announced at our AGM that Police and Council funds have been allocated to help stop vehicles accessing the hills. No figures or further details have been given apart from the money has to be spent in this financial year. So we may see some progress on the ground in the coming months. This is welcome news.


8.1.15: OUR FIRST AGM
Thanks to the 20 or so who came to our first AGM at Lazenby. It wasn't a big turn out but it was certainly spirited with lots of feedback and discussion. Special thanks to Cleveland Police and Crime commissioner Barry Coppinger and his colleague Sarah Wilson for attending and discussing the joyrding and crime situation with us (full details)
