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.

Reminder: STAY AT HOME!

Help the NHS and Save Lives – STAY AT HOME!

The Town Council have received reports of people gathering at the Old Quarry behind Villa Fields and Saffron Drive, which is against the social distancing rules set out by the Government. These gatherings have apparently included 6 people or more and have been seen on a number of different occasions. We understand Humberside Police have been informed.

Please can we stress the importance of following Government Guidelines ( to STAY AT HOME unless you need to leave to buy food, for health reasons or for work (but only if you cannot work from home).

You must comply with these rules. Relevant authorities have been given powers to enforce them – including fines.

Please can we take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to our residents who are abiding by these rules.
