Blaxton Parish Council

Welcome to the Blaxton Parish Council Website

The next Parish Council Meeting will be held on Friday 28 February 2020 in Blaxton Village Hall at 19:00.  The Agenda for the meeting is available here.

Draft Minutes of the Parish Council Meeting held on 16 January 2020 are available here.

DRONES

 

Doncaster Council is currently offering advice notices, at a cost, to post in open spaces throughout the Borough detailing the rules governing the use of drones in these areas.

 

Irrespective of whether notices are displayed, everyone should note that since July 2018, “You must not fly a Drone above 400 feet (120 metres) or within five kilometres (3 miles) of any airport or airport boundary” which means that drones should not be flown anywhere in Blaxton because of its proximity to the airport.  If you do fly a drone you risk a fine or prosecution.  If challenged, it is unlikely that compliance with all of the other rules governing drones would be a defence against a fine or prosecution.  Please exercise care.

CAP (Community Alcohol Partnership) Launch

CAP is an initiative that was launched on 25th July with the aim of reducing underage drinking and drug use in our villages (Auckley, Branton, Blaxton, Cantley and Finningley) and associated anti-social behaviour. It is a multi-agency initiative involving SY Police, DMBC Youth Services and Officers, DMBC Ward Councillors, Parish Councils, local Stores, local youngsters and others who share the concerns.

In Finningley the problems occur mainly on the playing fields (teen shelter and children's play area) where some youngsters meet and behave inappropriately. They leave litter (not in the bins provided so they are liable to £150 fine), play loud music, and leave detritus that suggests they have access to alcohol and drugs.

The initiative has six aims:

  1. Reduce incidents of alcohol sales to young people.
  2. Reduce proxy purchasing and general supply of alcohol to under 18's.
  3. Develop a responsible retailing ethos and effective partnership approach in the CAP area.
  4. Reduce anti-social behaviour associated with youth alcohol consumption.
  5. Increase young people's awareness of risks associated with drinking.
  6. Improve general understanding of safe drinking limits and the law related to the sale of alcohol to young people.

The six-month programme is seen as "educational" rather than "enforcement" but it was made clear at the launch that enforcement is always an option.
