ROOS PARISH NOTICEBOARD
The Coronvirus Act 2020
This legislation introduced to meet circumstances arising from the Covid 19 pandemic strongly advises against holding any 'face to face' meetings until at least May 2021.

There is a vacancy on the Council caused by the resignation of a Councillor.
A by-election to fill the vacancy will be held if by 10th September 2020 ten electors for the Parish Council give notice in writing to the Chief Executive of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council at County Hall, Beverley, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU17 9BA claiming such an election
If no such notice is given, the Parish Council will fill the vacancy by co-option.

Near Miss Accidents and Speeding
There is increasing public concern about car parking at various points throughout the village. The ERYC Highways Department does not perceive this to be a problem as there is no history of any incidents or accidents occurring. It is important therefore that any minor bump or scrape to vehicles, or, a near miss is reported to the Highways Authority. Contact: Email: email@example.com
You should report incidents of any perceived speeding or other anti-social driving behaviour to the local police service using the 101 non-emergency number
