Thank you.



Community officers will be attending Ferry Lane in Snaith on Saturday 29th August and Sunday 30th August between 12pm and 2pm.
Ward Cllr. Liz Sargeantson and the Deputy Town Mayor Cllr. Laura Thompson will also be accompanying PSCO Sam Chandler at these surgeries, where she is hoping to speak to residents of all ages who frequently use that area to try and tackle issues and concerns such as Anti-Social Behaviour and litter.
If you would like to discuss any issues with Sam or the team, please come along and have a chat to them.

Bellway Planning Update

Bellway Homes – Land South of Punton Walk

The Town Council is aware of a leaflet produced by Bellway Homes that has been delivered to a number of properties in Snaith. This relates to a planning update for the land South of Punton Walk.
However, we have discovered that this leaflet was only distributed to a small number of households and we know all of our residents will want to know of this update as even 120 new dwellings will have an impact on our community as a whole, and not just those in the immediate vicinity. A copy of the leaflet is therefore attached for your information.
Should you wish to make comment on this proposal, please send them to Savills at the following address; Savills, 71 Grey Street, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE1 6EF or via e-mail at
We have also requested that the deadline for comment be extended to 30th June 2020 to allow more residents more time to respond.
