Letter: A 10-year plan is on the horizon for Sewerby Hall

I respond to the Rev John Wardle’s letter of (November 23) and his interest in other readers’ comments:

He informs us that the work to create the Limekiln Lane Coach Park has begun.

I am wondering if John, and other readers, will be aware that once the bulldozers have finished their work that it is unlikely that they will be put to bed. I fear that it is more than likely they will be undertaking the relatively short distance along the cliff tops to Sewerby Hall.

Following their success with the re-allocation of the coach park I feel reasonably confident that the next initiative of the ERYC will be to build a new car park on the site of Holme Farm which lies within Sewerby Hall grounds quite close to the cliff top.

The ERYC has commissioned a consultant from York to help formulate a 10-year plan for Sewerby Hall.

There is a tight time schedule with regard to this – an options analysis this month; January workshops; and recommendations to the council on February 23 next year.

It is unlikely that the ERYC will take much notice of the view of Bridlington Town Council. So I reckon that by early summer we will again be present at a planning meeting to be insulted yet again by the Conservative councillor who says that for many years Bridlington people have objected to any improvements to their town and to hear from another councillor that a site visit is

unnecessary as he visited the area as a “little lad” and knows it well. Next move for the bulldozers – Danes Dyke – or Flamborough Head..?!
