Linton on Ouse

Given the current situation, it seems somewhat short sighted that Linton on Ouse is to become a refugee reception centre. Does "care and Maintenance" not exist any more? If it doesn't, maybe it ought to!! My heart goes out to the residents of Linton!

Hi matey, I live in a Northern town, I would love to round up like for like and swap your refugees for British scum.

As someone born and raised in that neck of the woods I can safely say you don't speak for the majority.

Training Command or refugees?

Hard to choose.

I came from a Northern town "Matey" and I'm very familiar with "British scum" having had the pleasure of dealing with "scum" of many varieties. I'm sure if you asked the residents of Linton on Ouse, if they'd rather have it as an RAF base, I'm pretty sure they would in a heartbeat. Surely the heart was ripped out of that community when the base closed?

Linton will always have a very special place in my heart; 136 Helicopter Specialist Course with some wonderful personalities and excellent instructors. Great runs ashore in Ripon (teachers’ training college) and many great local hostelries with a great bunch of fellow trainees. Beating the toll bridge on the way home, illegal firing range in the cellar of the H block, harry doggers over Pilmore Junction and bouncing the CFI and Stn Cdr in my mighty Chipmunk (nearly got me chopped!). Final landing on FHT when I managed to bounce (major!) on a short landing and nearly dinked the prop but still stopped on the piano keys! Poor brakes in TL’s Ford Popular, which were supplemented by opening the (rearward opening) front doors.

I can still smell the leather and high-octane fuel, not to mention the occasional bit of vomit.

Swing the lamp!

That may be muppet.........but the (granted, one) resident of Linton I spoke too was devastated. If you live in Linton and don't mind, you're okay then aren't you.

Yup, feelings here are mixed but generally not good.

https://homeofficemedia.blog.gov.uk/...accommodation/

https://www.kevinhollinrake.org.uk/n...AMMlv8Bdmb4F_o

Came as a bolt out of the blue this morning. Local MP spouting twaddle, about jobs and business prospects. Oh, and the Parish Council has been blind-sided.
Initial thoughts were it was for refugee families but that has now been clarified.

Seems 500+ single male asylum seekers will be free to wander around unhindered. Crap bus service so they won't be going far to make it back for the 10pm curfew BUT if they're not back someone will phone them to make sure THEY are OK.

The lack of information, discussion and community inclusion is a disgrace.

I wonder will York City council give you a reduction in your council tax to reflect the drop in value of your property? Must feel like light years ago when that place was an asset to the village. So sorry SWB!

"Oh, and the Parish Council has been blind-sided."

Parish Councils have few responsibilities (allotments is the main one) and nothing to do with Planning Permission or developments

As a former chair of a parish council, I must disagree with the comment that PC’s have nothing to do with planning.

All planning applications should go to the PC for comment as stage 1 of the planning decision process and are there to help applicants and equally those that may have objections.

We had no allotments.

Local councils DO "listen" to Parish Councils on planning applications..........so when the local council turns down your planning application, they can site the Parish council objection too as additional justification! But in reality Asturias56, you're quite right, Parish councils have absolutely no leverage in my experience. I've experienced both sides of that coin.

Not sure that is a true statement. My local parish council comments on all planning applications in the Parish and objects to quite a few.

Well our parish council can "pass" or "object" and county planners take no notice whichever way.
instead they set up a hit squad (sorry sub committee ) to rule on all things eco, ordering the full monty,
heat pumps solar panels PV cells etc etc, until they were politely told that even the county planners
had not yet sorted those issues properly enough to rule on it. Thread drift sorry.

Bit of a moot point what a Parish Council's role should or should not be.
Fact is, neither they nor the local community had any warning.

Linton falls under Hambleton District Council and I am not expecting any discount on rates. Even if we did get one, a saving of £30/year is hardly comparable to a loss of £30,000 on a property valuation.

I have two estate agents coming round next week yo give me a property valuation. We were looking to re locate to CGY next year and I had already started the move ball rolling. It will be interesting to hear their thoughts on a community of 2000 having 500+ single male asylum seekers ( of questionable background and intent) free to roam the streets.

Intention was to beat the flood of Annington homes hitting the market and depressing prices but now this too. An expensive rethink may be on the cards.

"having 500+ single male asylum seekers ( of questionable background and intent) "

But on the other hand you 'll have permanent supply of builders, electricians, painters, gardeners, mechanics and people to look after the aged

Many of them will also be available to pick fruit and potatoes ...............

You will probably find at least two doctors and one vet amongst them as well as a number of nurses

Unlikely to be any financiers, lawyers, media influencers or other low life

‘Probably’ is doing a lot of heavy lifting in that sentence.
