The Local Offer – A One-stop Shop For Information

A Hornsea resident has been given a suspended prison sentence after fraudulently claiming over £26,000 in benefits. Sonja Davison, 52, from Eastgate View, Hornsea appeared at Beverley Magistrates Court where she pleaded guilty to dishonestly making a false statement, affecting her entitlement to council tax benefit and income support. The case was brought to court following an investigation by East Riding of Yorkshire Council and the Department for Work and Pensions, who discovered via a data matching exercise that Davison had failed to declare capital in excess of £16,000. Davison was given a six-month custodial sentence, suspended for 12 months, as well as 100 hours of unpaid work and ordered to pay £85 towards costs.

Extra Investment In 2014 Surface Dressing Programme

East Riding of Yorkshire Council has invested an extra £300,000 in this year’s surface dressing programme to ensure that more motorists will now benefit from an improved road network. The extra investment, which was secured from central Government, has meant that the 91 kilometre surface dressing programme could be extended by 14 kilometres along the region’s busy ‘A’ road network. The extra funding, which has come thanks to a successful bid by the council to central Government to fund pothole repairs and prevention, brings the overall cost of the programme to £2m. The works had been due to run until late July, but the extension of the programme meant they continued until mid-August. Councillor Chris Matthews, portfolio holder for infrastructure, highways and emergency planning said: “I am delighted that the 2014 surface dressing programme has not only been completed successfully, with minimal disruption to road users, but also that we have been able to extend the programme thanks to additional funding. “This means that more road users can benefit from an improved road network across the East Riding.” Roads that have benefitted from the scheme’s extension include the A1079 Beverley Bypass, A166 Bishop Wilton, A1079 Shiptonthorpe, A1034 South Cave, and […]
