East Riding of Yorkshire Council - Safe & Sound Fund

A pot of money is available to residents across the East Riding to help them minimise the fear of crime by increasing their home security. The scheme allows people who may be vulnerable to apply for additional home security measures such as additional locks for doors and windows, door chains and window alarms.

Applicants must be aged 60 or disabled and be a home owner, private sector tenant or housing association tenant and the combined savings of everyone living in the household must not exceed £5,000. The scheme is not available to anyone who is a council house tenant.

To apply request an application form by sending an email to safe.communites@eastriding.gcsx.gov.uk or calling 01482 396380 




Changes in the law mean that from 1st October 2016 all water and sewerage companies will take over the responsibility of private sewerage pumping stations.

Only certain pumping stations will be eligible for transfer - generally the privately owned pumping stations which serve more than one property and connect to the existing public sewer network.

If you are aware of any private pumping station please report it to Yorkshire Water by calling 03451242424.
