Late Night Shopping 2020 - Cancelled

Sadly the Town Council has had to make the difficult decision to cancel plans for this year's late night shopping event.

While it may still seem a long way to December, it takes a long time to plan for an event such as this and public gatherings are unlikely to resume any time soon.
As every other year, the Town Council will still be lighting up the town. We encourage you to do as much of your shopping in the Town and see what our fantastic independent shops have to offer!

The Howden Post Office Service has re-opened

The service will be available on Mondays and Fridays every week from 10am until 12 Noon at the Council Office, 17 Bridgegate.

Markers have been placed on the floor, the room has been rearranged to stop people from gathering too closely and a screen placed on the till. Please follow the instructions in the building and respect social distancing.

Annual Governance and Accountability Return (AGAR) for 2019/2020:

Under The Local Audit and Accountability Act 2014 the Town Council has prepared Accounting Statements for the year ended 31 March 2020 in the form required by proper practices (the AGAR). A copy of the AGAR documentation can be found on the Documents page under the 'Council Financial Reports' section.

 Howden Public Toilets Re-opened 

Received from East Riding of Yorkshire Council:

In line with recent changes to Government advice, the Council plans to re-open the remaining public conveniences across the East Riding of Yorkshire, to provide clean toilet and hand-washing facilities, due to an expected increase in footfall from people visiting non-essential shops and other facilities opening on Monday, 15 June 2020.


We have taken this step for public health reasons, to protect the local environment and to maintain appropriate public behaviour.
Further, we have taken into consideration the needs of those people with disabilities who will also visit the area.
We have increased our cleaning operation, and will be using signs to advise people to wash their hands, and keep a safe distance from others.

From next week, the Council is re-opening the toilets at: 
Howden (Mon-Sun)
Charles Briggs Avenue, Hailgate, Howden, DN14 7SX

We continue to urge people not to travel without a reasonable excuse, and to stay local to where they live. However, we are continuing to monitor the situation on-the-ground in our Town Centres and visitor attractions, and will look to take additional steps, should they be required, to protect the public as we move towards the Summer.

Director of Communities and Environment

Howden Market Place - Survey Now Closed

 

Thank you to all who participated in the ‘test the water’ pedestrianisation of Market Place survey. This was a very short notice survey request by the East Riding of Yorkshire Council to get a feel for any possible changes in Howden town centre so they could include them in a couple of applications to the Government for funding under the guidance the Government had been issued regards social distancing, encouraging walking and cycling and opening up town centres.


590 responses were received with 572 votes. There was no clear majority for change. 45% opted for option 5 – no change and 55% opted for some change (options 1 – 4) with option 2 being the preferred option at 25%. The majority of votes were from the public, then from visitors and a small percentage from businesses. The East Riding of Yorkshire Council have been informed of the results and will not take this opportunity for change any further.

 The five options offered can be viewed here.
