Half a million pounds is being released by East Riding Council to provide cost-of-living support in three key areas. The ‘Help for Households’ campaign will initially target improved insulation for a thousand homes; support voluntary and community initiatives that improve social cohesion, health and wellbeing; with £200,000 going to bolster local foodbanks and the East Riding Food Poverty Alliance. Councillor Jonathan Owen, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, told Beverley FM that this is the first of many planned interventions to help cushion local residents from the worst of the impacts from the cost-of-living crisis and associated inflationary pressures.

Proposals have been revealed to move Beverley’s current household waste recycling site at Weel to a new enlarged purpose-built facility west of Ings Road, off the Grange Way. Officials told us that the new centre has been designed much larger so there is capacity to cope with the area’s expanding population. Residents are urged to go along to one of two open exhibitions to view the proposed new scheme, where they can give their views and have the chance to speak to engineers and recycling officers face-to-face. The first one is next Monday morning at Beverley Enterprise Centre in Beck View Road. The scheme is expected to go before the council’s planning committee this winter. Read the full story here
