planning information

The Parish Council does not have a Full Council Meeting in August , however we have several planning applications we wish to look at in more detail and therefore the Chair has called an Extraordinary meeting for Wednesday 4th August at 7.00pm in the Community Hall to allow the Council to look at the Cranswick and Sproatley Road plans along with any others that may come in upto that date.As with our usual meeting members of the Public are able to come along and we will allow Pubic Participation at the start of the meeting which will give any one attending a chance to speak regarding the planning applications. If you have any objections to a planning application then please ensure your comments are registered via the ERYC planning portal as its extremely important that you have your say, the Parish Council will have its but the more residents who register any concerns the better. If no one does then even with the Parish Council comments it is ofen difficult to overcome and influence the planners.

Crematorium Planning Application ref 20/035641/STPLF . Please see new plans a copy on the notice board and below.

All comments must be put into East Riding by 18th December see

New artwork and details for Crematorium.

 Following deferment to obtain further information we have taken the opportunity to draw residents attention to this application and as such ask for your input.

Thank you to all those residents who responded to the Special edition of Preston Patter regarding the Crematorium, as the intial public consultation was done back in the summer of 2021 for the whole of Holderness we thought along with several residents that both sides of the plans should have been presented. We thank all of you who responded and you responses have been sent to the planning officer Ms J.Downs I, Planning Officer at ERYC Beverley.


the Hull Daily Mail reported that a new Crematorium in East Yorkshire is being looked at by ERYC and they are looking at Lelley Road Preston as a place for this . As a perish Council this is the first we had heard about it , the ERYC are meeting on the 7th July as a cabinet to discuss the proposal and more information will be made available to the public following this . We understand that prior to any planning application arriving the ERYC will be looking at public comments via their website but currently we do not have any information on this.We will update as soon as we know more.

The Preston Parish Council has also written to the ERYC via its ward Councillors to ask that in light of the recent decision by the Secretary of State not to support our request to review the decision made regarding the Yorkshire Energy Park, that our comments regarding Traffic and the need for better traffic management in the village be supported. We have requested that they look at many improvements from a byepass to new footpaths, and many other things in between.We have also requested a meeting prior to commencement on site.


The Parish Council had wrote to the Secretary of State regarding the Yorkshire Energy Park  following the ERYC planning decision to grant permission, we had many concerns . However the Secretary of State has decided not to look into the decision and therefore we are now in the process of writing to ERYC via our ward Councillors to ask that they look at what measures could be put in place to ease the burden of this development on the Parish of Preston. 


10th June 2020. Following the Eastern Area planning meeting on 8th June 2020 the Committee voted to agree the planning application for 9 dwellings on Abbey Lane. the full details can be viewed on the ERYC planning portal but as the Parish Council we are emailed the decision letter and I have uploaded it here if any one wishes to view.
