Homeowners are being reminded that they must take responsibility for waste from their house – even if they pay someone else to deal with it.

Under The Environmental Protection Act 1990, if waste is found dumped it is the person who it originally belonged to who is held legally responsible for it. They could face prosecution and a maximum fine of £5,000.

Anyone paying a carrier to dispose of their waste is advised to check that they are registered with the Environment Agency as a registered waste carrier and ask to see their registered waste carrier’s certificate. It is also a good idea to ask where the waste will be taken for disposal.

If they are unable to answer these questions or produce the correct documents another waste carrier should be used.

Rob Parkinson, streetscene environmental enforcement officer, said “People often have no idea that they are breaking the law until they are caught up in a prosecution case, please don’t let this happen to you.

“Please remember, you have a responsibility to ensure your waste cannot escape from your control and that it is going to be disposed of in a correct manner. If your waste is discovered fly-tipped, you could be held responsible and fined.”

The threat of prosecution and fine is not limited to who use unregistered waste carriers.  It also applies to those whose waste is disposed of by other tradesmen including builders, gardeners and roofing contractors.

Homeowners are also advised to make a note of the vehicle registration number of the vehicle used to remove the waste, any contact details for the individuals, and a description of them, which may be useful if they do dispose of the waste illegally.

The Environment Agency can be contacted on 08708 506 506 for a waste carrier validation check.

People living throughout the East Riding are being warned that cowboy builders may come calling to repair damage caused by winter weather.

Unfortunately, conmen and disreputable traders will see the misfortune of those whose homes have been damaged as a way of making easy money.

Council is warning members of the public to be on their guard when dealing with traders who knock at the door, without invitation, offering to carry out repairs or provide other services.

Councillor Jane Evison, the council’s portfolio holder for cultural services, and public protection, said: “The recent heavy snow and long periods of frost have caused damage to some buildings.  We want to alert potential victims to methods used by unscrupulous traders and urge people to treat doorstep callers with caution.”

Colin Briggs, the council’s trading standards services manager said: “I am very concerned that cowboy itinerant traders will take this opportunity to prey on people who have already suffered as a result of the cold.

“If you need any remedial work to be carried out to rectify damage to your home, ensure that you use traders who have a known track record or traders that are recommended to you by your insurance company.

“Do not be tempted by a promise of a quick fix from a complete stranger who knocks on your door, this will usually turn out to be expensive and of poor quality. Remember that all the reputable traders in the area will be busy so you will need to be patient, but this patience is more likely to be rewarded by a good quality job.”

Householders are advised to get three quotes in respect of any snow or ice damage, in order to check what work is required and compare prices.  They are also advised to check with their insurance companies before agreeing to work being done.

Anyone who may have been approached by a cowboy builder or simply has concerns about traders acting suspiciously can contact Consumer Direct on 08454 040506.

YORKSHIRE’S leading housebuilder has unveiled a ground-breaking new scheme to reward the growing number of parents who put down a on their children’s first home.

Yorkshire East will pay the interest which Mum and Dad would have earned on their savings at a highly competitive rate of five per cent – well above the Bank of England’s base rate.

The offer means that parents who want to help their offspring get on the first rung of the property ladder can do so without losing a penny of interest on their savings.

Under the scheme – which is appropriately called ‘Parent Power’ – Barratt Yorkshire East will pay five per cent interest per annum for a full five years on a deposit of up to 20 per cent. So if a parent puts down a maximum £24,000 deposit on a property costing £120,000, they will receive the equivalent of £1,200 a year in interest for five years. This is paid in a lump sum of £6,000 at the time of completion.

“The reality of high house prices is that a growing number of parents now put down a deposit to help their son or daughter to buy a property of their own,” said , Sales Director at Barratt Yorkshire East.

“But if that money is used to fund a deposit, it means that it isn’t in a high-interest savings account earning money for Mum and Dad.”

“This new scheme gets around that problem because you can pay a deposit on a new Barratt home for your children and we will pay you the interest you would have earned on the money.”

The offer is not restricted to mothers and fathers and is also available to other family members or friends who want to help a move into a home of their own.

An ambitious programme to build 331 homes throughout the is helping to create jobs for people from the area.

Local contractors are being used on schemes in towns and villages throughout the East Riding as part of the £46.5m programme – funded by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, and the Homes and Communities Agency, which has contributed £20.16m to the project.

The programme has also helped to find work for 16 new apprentices who are keen to get a start in the construction and management sectors. Of these 10 are hosted by the council but work on a day to day basis with the construction companies, a further four are employed directly by contractors.

Two have also been employed in more office-based roles to help manage the allocation and management of the new build programme.

Whether they have just left school or are looking for a new career, the skills they learn and training they will be given will be an invaluable boost to their CVs.

Nicole Williams, 16, from became an apprentice joiner, as a direct result of the affordable housing programme, with the council as soon as she left school.

She is now helping to construct buildings as part of the council’s affordable housing scheme, working on the framework of the buildings as well as more visible pieces of work including floor joists, architraves, skirting and doors.

She said: “It’s my first time building properties and I fancied a bit of a change. It’s interesting doing something a bit different. When the buildings are finished I will be able to look at them and say that I was involved in that.”

As part of her apprenticeship Nicole is being sponsored on an NVQ, which she hopes will boost her CV and make her more employable in the future.

She said: “The NVQ is quite highly looked upon by employers, more than other qualifications.

“I hope it will lead to other jobs in the future. I’d like to stay with the council or become self employed in the future.

“I’m quite lucky to have this job. I don’t really know what I would have done if I wasn’t doing this. I’d have looked for something hands on.”

The project will create high quality affordable homes in the areas where they are most needed in the East Riding. New homes will help to reduce the number of people currently on the council’s housing waiting list.

Those who are now living in homes which are too large for them will also be given the chance to trade them in for a more manageable property in a location which is right for them. This will free up larger properties for families.

Leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Councillor Stephen Parnaby, OBE and Helen Williams, manager at the Homes and Communities Agency will be visiting the site on Monday, 4 October, where they will meet Nicole and the contractors to see the work which is happening on site.

Cllr Parnaby said: “This exciting project will see high quality homes built by the council for the first time in more than two decades. By offering these newly built homes to people who can benefit from them we hope to make a real difference to improving their quality of life.

“These homes are being built to a very high standard and with energy efficiency in mind which will not only help the tenants to save money, it will also help the environment.”

Helen Williams said:

“I am delighted to meet Nicole and see the real people who are benefiting from our investment.

“It is excellent that our funding is providing not only homes that people want in their local communities at the same time as creating and protecting jobs for people like Nicole.”

Jason Papprill, managing director of Hobson & Porter, who have built several of the schemes for the council, will also be at the site on October 4.

He said:

“We were delighted to be asked by East Riding of Yorkshire Council to work on these projects and to deliver much needed affordable accommodation in the area.

“The houses completed and currently under construction have achieving high standards of quality and energy saving design which will benefit local residents and the wider public in .

“We are also very pleased to be working in partnership with East Riding of Yorkshire Council, YORbuild and the HCA in providing construction skills training to apprentices and the construction team as part of our ongoing commitment to personal and professional development within the industry.

“The construction sector has suffered a huge loss of jobs and skills during the recession and we are determined to ensure these skills are maintained and carried forward to the next generation.”

Site managers working for local housebuilder Yorkshire East have scooped four prestigious awards in a national competition to find the best-run building sites in Britain.

Andy Devine, gained official recognition for the excellence of the Innov@tions site he runs with a Pride in the Job Quality Award. This is Andy’s fourth accolade for his outstanding customer service and quality of work.

He was joined on the winners’ podium by fellow Quality Award winners Simon Reynolds, who runs the Clearwater site, Mark Oates, who runs the Great Oaks site and Mark Thomson, who is based at the Waterside Park development.

The four site Managers collectively have eleven awards between them including Site Manager of the year which was presented to Andy Devine in 2008 and again this year.

The Pride in the Job Quality Awards are the most coveted in the housebuilding industry. They are awarded after the construction standard setting body NHBC (National House-Building Council) carries out a series of spot check site inspections to select the best-organised and best-quality developments.

All four site managers will now go forward to the final round of the competition which will select the best site manager in Britain.

Almost 13,000 site managers throughout the UK were judged on every aspect of their job, including technical skill, quality workmanship, customer service and site safety.

The national recognition comes just weeks after Barratt became the first major housebuilder ever to be awarded an official five-star rating for customer satisfaction by the Home Builders Federation.

Paul Newman, Managing Director of Barratt Yorkshire East said: “The official recognition of the jobs which Mark Oates, Mark Thomson, Simon Reynolds, and Andy Devine are doing shows that Barratt is building some of the best quality homes in the country here in Yorkshire.”

“The site manager plays a pivotal role in delivering high-quality new homes and that is why we are so delighted with all four of these national awards.”

“It is because we have such confidence in the quality of our build that last year we became the first housebuilder to provide a five-year warranty on all the internal fixtures and fittings.”

“We are determined to continue operating at the highest possible level and deliver hundreds more homes of exceptional quality in Yorkshire in the next 12 months.”

Yorkshire East today provides further evidence of a recovery in the local market by welcoming five new recruits to its steadily expanding team.

The team now stands at more than 205 strong, with 30 of those on board recruited in the last year.

New recruit Vicki Seddon saw how happy her fiancé was working as a Barratt site manager that she had to apply for a position too.

Vicki, age 30 commented: “To work for a company like Barratt is a dream come true. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and the opportunities available are endless. Each day is so different and instead of looking forward to my day off, I look forward to going to work.”

Also new to the company is Shelley Warriner who brings a wealth of experience to her role. New Sales Adviser Jo Swan loves the housebuilder so much that she lives on a nearby development, whilst Nicola Bailey and Julie Midwood are enjoying work in a brand new industry.

The new starters join at a time when the housebuilder is stepping up its commitment to provide the best service for buyers looking for a dream home so there is plenty going on to fill their time.

Paul Newman, Managing Director at Barratt Yorkshire East said: “All five appointments have been strategically planned to coincide with our focus on expanding the business and the desire to make 2010 our best year yet.”

“I am extremely pleased that we are steadily expanding and strengthening the business and we look forward to welcoming more new starters in the next few months.”

In response to a need for affordable in Holme on Spalding Moor, a proposal for a mixed development of 23 two and three-bedroom homes (including two-bed bungalows) in Sands Lane has been produced by Chevin Association with the support of Council.

The proposals are at the consultation stage, prior to the submission of a planning application, and interested parties are invited to the village hall to view the proposals between 3.30 and 7pm on Thursday, 9th September. Staff from Chevin and the council will be there to answer questions and listen to people’s views.

In 2006, Holme On Spalding Moor Parish Council produced a parish plan in which more than half the respondents confirmed their view that affordable housing was required to meet the requirements for young families who could not otherwise compete in the housing market. In 2007, East Riding of Yorkshire Council commissioned the Housing Needs and Market Assessment (HNMA) which also concluded that there was a great need for affordable housing in the village.

The demand for affordable homes is demonstrated by the fact that there are 360 households on the council house waiting list for the village, 38 of whom have put Holme on Spalding Moor as their first choice, but a total of just 44 council houses in the village.

Councillor Jane Evison, the council’s portfolioholder for housing, said: “I am pleased we are still seeing high quality schemes being proposed and promoted by our partner organisations even in this period of economic uncertainty.

“I am keen to see the development progress to the planning stage and hope the people of Holme on Spalding Moor get behind the scheme. It will go some way towards meeting the undoubted housing need for local people who might otherwise be unable to compete in the housing market in the village.”

A great deal of consultation and investigation was undertaken into alternative sites before identifying Sands Lane as the preferred location for the Chevin Housing Association scheme.

In this location, a requirement of any planning consent would be for all the housing to be affordable and reserved for local people or those with a strong local connection (such as an elderly relative who requires support). This condition will be secured by a binding legal agreement, and enforced through a allocations’ process.
