26-Oct-2020: North Yorkshire County Council have the respon-sibility of replacing the footbridge over the River Kyle between Alne and Tollerton that was swept away last February. The good news is that they plan to replace this with a future-proof structure similar to the one that exists on the footpath between Tollerton and Youlton. The bad news is that they do not have funds until next financial year and that it may be 12 months before it is actually done. The possibility of putting the existing bridge back in situ as a short-term measure has been looked at but there are concerns about the state of both the bridge deck and the foundations and the ensuing potential liabilities.

If the absence of this bridge is annoying you, please write to the NYCC Public Rights of Way Officer, Andrew Brown, at [email protected] expressing your concerns. Public opinion might help to get it done sooner rather than later.

03-Aug-2020: Over the last few years, there have been numerous complaints about the dangers and congestion at the Village Hall corner particularly during school drop-off and pick-up hours. Your Parish Council has agreed with the school and NYCC Highways to help solve the problem with yellow lines on the corner and separate bus parking arrangements. A process is in train to agree the details and a public consultation is being organised by NYCC. It is hoped that all Alne residents will support these proposals as being in the best interests and safety of all concerned. It should be noted that the timescale of this process is likely to be protracted but that it is not within the control of Alne Parish Council.  

Alne Coronavirus Support Group: If you need help, please contact David Edwards, the central co-ordinator, on 833269, 07583-377276 or [email protected]gmail.com.
