Planning

The Town Council is a statutory consultee on all planning applications in the town, but the 'planning authority', which makes the decisions, is the East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC). Because of the relatively short timescale of the consultation process the Planning Committee meets every four weeks to fit in with the ERYC's schedule. The Committee makes recommendations on behalf of the Town Council, except in the case of applications determined by the ERYC as 'Strategic' which are put before the full Council for decision.

Resources & Asset Management

The Resources and Asset Management Committee recommends policy positions to the Council and is also concerned with the administration of the finances and other assets, regularly monitoring income and expenditure. It recommends the annual budget for running costs and for grants to be paid to local organisations. The Town Council's funding comes mainly from the ERYC.
