Parish Plan Questionnaire Full Results Nature of the Parish Before describing the questionnaire methodology and results, it is important to understand the structure of the Parish. Within the Parish there are two distinct villages, that of Welburn and that of Crambeck. The long established core of the village of Welburn consists of 127 houses and is largely a continuous linear development with the principal exception of the Church Lane area which is largely a 1960’s cul de sac development. In addition, there are a number of other parts to Welburn which lie outside the core of the village. These are Chestnut Avenue which consists of 20 houses about half a mile east of the main village, Holmes Crescent which consists of 11 houses a mile east of the Main Village, just west of the A64, and Castle Howard Station Road which runs down from the east side of the A64 and contains 6 houses. Another development off Castle Howard Station Road is Jamie’s Cragg. This is a holiday home site containing static caravans and chalets. These are not intended as permanent homes and residents have to vacate the site for two months every year. However, it is believed that up to 20 households consider this as their main residence. In addition, there are 6 isolated properties within the Parish giving a total of 190 houses in Welburn. The separate village of Crambeck was formed from the development of the Crambeck Reform School in 1989. It lies off the east side of the A64 about 1.5 miles from the core of Welburn. The mutually owned Crambeck Management Company oversees the management of the many communal facilities in Crambeck. In the same area are the few houses on Crambeck Lane which are not formally part of Crambeck Village. In total there are 68 properties in Crambeck. Questionnaire Methodology and Response Rate A preliminary survey in July 2008 had asked households about what they liked about the parish, what they didn’t like and what they would change. This achieved a response rate of 74% overall. In addition, views were sought from businesses operating in the village, local groups and the children and staff at the local school. This was followed up in September by an Open Meeting attended by 77 residents at which the results of the survey were shared and more information was gathered about the issues facing the village and residents’ hopes and fears for the future. From these consultations, separate questionnaires were drawn up for Welburn and Crambeck to fully quantify the opinions gathered and provide a sound basis for prioritising actions. One questionnaire was delivered to each household in the Parish with the exception of properties which are holiday homes, second homes or were unoccupied during the whole period in which the survey was administered (12th March to 6th April 2009). The latter included 12 houses which were for sale or to let and where the previous occupants had left, but also included 14 of the 20 properties at Jamie’s Cragg where the residents consider this to be their main home but who were away for all of the period. Thus, questionnaires were delivered to 163 out of 190 properties in Welburn and 67 out of 68 in Crambeck. Questionnaires were delivered into the hands of the householder wherever possible and later collected by hand in a sealed envelope, although it was also possible for questionnaires to be returned by other means. Householders were encouraged to return the questionnaire by giving free entry to a £50 prize draw to those returning their questionnaire. Questionnaire envelopes were only

opened and processed by the staff of a professional Market Research agency. Only the aggregated results were seen by anyone living in the village. A response rate of 87% (142 from the 163 eligible properties) was achieved in Welburn and 75% (50 out of 67) in Crambeck giving an overall response of 83%. This, together with the fact that there was good coverage of all areas means that the results have a very strong foundation and are representative. It should be noted when interpreting results that not only was there generally a “No view” or “Neither agree nor disagree” option, but in many cases respondents did not answer all the questions, probably tending to ignore those that did not affect them or where they had no interest. It has been agreed it is simpler to maintain the base of 142 or 50 in most percentages quoted and make it clear where there is explicit disagreement. This means that a question might, for example, have 50% agreeing, 10% explicitly disagreeing and 40% either saying “no view” or just not replying. Thus where percentages do not add to 100%, the difference will be the no views / no replies. Profile In Welburn, 28% of responding households are single person households (12% male, 16% female). 46% are two person households and 25% are three or more person households. Only 4% of households have more than four members, with the largest household size being seven. Most of the 2+ person households are mixed gender with just 4% of all households being 2+ female. Individuals are split 50:50 male and female. In Crambeck, 18% of households are single person households (2% male, 16% female). 56% are two person households and 24% are three or four person households. Most 2+ person households are mixed gender with just 2% of all households being 2+ male and 4% being 2+ female. Individuals are split 58:42 towards females. In both communities there is a good spread of ages. In Welburn, 18% of households contain children aged 18 or under while 40% contain someone over 65. In Crambeck, 22% of households contain children while only 16% contain someone over 65. In Welburn, 32% of households contain someone who has lived here for over 25 years while 30% of households have only lived in the Parish for 5 years or less. Thus, there has been a recent influx of new residents into a long established population. In Crambeck, 36% of households have only lived in the Parish for 5 years or less. 26% of households have lived in the parish for 6-10 years (based on the resident who has lived here longest) and 34% of households have lived here for 11-25 years. Only 2% (a single household) contain someone who has lived here for over 25 years. This reflects the relatively new nature of the development, but also shows that many who came initially are staying. In Welburn, 41% of households have no-one working, probably reflecting the 43% of households which contain someone who is retired. At least one adult is in paid work in 56% of households and in 49% of households all the adults work full time. 17% of households have someone who runs their own business. There are very few households containing someone who is unemployed (3%), a housewife / house husband (8%) or other including carers / disabled (6%). Thus the households tend

Page 2


to divide into those who are retired and those who are very busy working. Only 11% of households contain someone who works in the parish. In Crambeck, 22% of households have no-one working, again probably reflecting a similar percentage of households which contain someone who is retired. At least one adult is in paid work in 78% of households and in 72% of households all the adults work full time. 28% of households have someone who runs their own business. There are no households containing someone who is unemployed. Only 6% contain a full time housewife / house husband and only 4% include someone in the “other” category which includes carers / disabled. Thus, as for Welburn, the households tend to divide into those who are retired and those who are very busy working but with the retired proportion being very much less. Only 10% of households contain someone who works in the parish. In Welburn, 64% of the responding households live in owner occupied properties, 19% in housing association rented properties and 13% in private rented properties. In Crambeck, 92% of the responding households live in owner occupied properties with the remaining 8% in private rented properties. In Welburn, 67% of responding households live in the main village, with the remaining 29% (where the location is known) living at Chestnut Avenue, Holmes Crescent, Castle Howard Station Road, Jamie’s Cragg and other isolated properties. These locations in Welburn which lie outside the main village will be referred to subsequently as the Outlying Areas. In Welburn, only 12% of households don’t have a vehicle, but this rises to 19% of households with elderly and 33% of Holmes Crescent households. 39% of households have one car and the same percentage have two. Only 8% of households have more than two cars. 81% of households with children have two or more cars. In Crambeck only 4% of households don’t have a vehicle. 22% of households have one car and 50% have two. Only 6% of households have more than two. 82% of households with children have two or more cars. 18% didn’t answer this question.

Problems at the A64 junction for Crambeck Access to and from the A64 by car at the Crambeck junction is ranked as the biggest problem overall in Crambeck. The second biggest is crossing the A64 on foot and the fourth biggest is the desire for a bus shelter and pull in on both sides of the A64. Looking at these issues in more detail, the biggest problems are: • Turning right onto the A64 by car (96% problem, 2% no problem) • Crossing the A64 on foot (90% problem, 4% no problem) • Speed of traffic on the A64 (84% problem, 8% no problem; problem for 100% of households with children) Over 56% see the above as a big problem. These are closely followed by: • Turning left onto the A64 by car (80% problem, 16% no problem) • Turning right off the A64 by car (74% problem, 20% no problem; problem for 90% of households with children) • Noise from the traffic on the A64 (70% problem, 22% no problem) However, less than 36% see these as a big problem. Turning left off the A64 by car isn’t seen as a problem by 50% of households vs 44% seeing it as a problem. The most popular of the solutions put forward are: • Pedestrian island on the A64 (86% agree, 10% disagree) • Pull in for buses at Crambeck on both sides of the A64 (80% agree, 2% disagree) • Regular cutting back of vegetation to improve visibility at the A64 junction (78% agree, 4% disagree) • Speed restrictions on the A64 approaching the Crambeck junction (78% agree, 12% disagree; 87% of households with elderly agree) Over 50% strongly agree with these ideas. In addition, elsewhere in the questionnaire, 86% of Crambeck households supported the desire for a permanent bus shelter on both sides of the road, with no disagreement. Page 10

Speed and Parking in Crambeck Problems of car parking in Crambeck ranks 6th overall in Crambeck. The problem of the speed of cars in Crambeck itself isn’t noted as a problem by many. On being asked more specifically about these, the results are: • Car parking in Crambeck (70% problem, 24% no problem; problem for 82% of households with children) • Speed of cars in Crambeck itself (60% problem, 38% no problem; problem for 72% of households with children) Only 20% say parking is a big problem and only 10% say the same about the speed of cars. 18% of households park one car on the road overnight and 6% park two. 30% at least occasionally have a problem with motor vehicles obstructing the entry to their property while 8% at least occasionally have problems finding somewhere to park, rising to 18% of households with children. The most popular of the solutions put forward is: • The introduction of a 20mph speed limit in Crambeck village (76% agree, 2% disagree; 88% of households with elderly and 91% of households with children agree) There is a slightly lower level of agreement with: • The erection of a STOP sign at the exit from Crambeck village onto Crambeck Lane (46% agree, 16% disagree; 64% of households with children agree) Support is more finely balanced for: • Making the area around the central island at the lower end of the village a no parking zone (34% agree, 30% disagree; 55% of households with children and 50% of households with elderly agree) Strong views are held on either side by around 20% of households. Page 11


The idea of speed humps immediately after the entrance to Crambeck village was firmly rejected by 52% to 26%. However, 45% of households with children wanted these vs 27% who didn’t. Gritting and Salt Bins The issue of ensuring roads are adequately gritted in Winter was not explored in the overall ranking of issues, but emerged as an important point elsewhere in the questionnaire. 85% of Welburn and 80% of Crambeck households want road gritters to come through earlier in bad weather. Only 2% and 10% respectively say they don’t want this. 91% of full time working households in Welburn want this as do 91% of households with children in Crambeck. 67% of Welburn households want more salt piles or bins around the village, increasing to 77% of households with children. Only 8% reject this idea. 60% of Crambeck households want more grit bins in Crambeck Lane, increasing to 90% of households with children. Only 16% reject this idea.

Facilities, Groups and Events The concern over the possible future loss of village facilities is sixth on the overall list of issues for Welburn but features much less strongly in the overall list for Crambreck. Before looking at concerns about closure, it is worth looking first at claimed usage of village facilities. More than 75% of Welburn households report using three facilities to at least some extent. These are the footpaths, the Pub and the Village Hall. A further four are used by 50% or over. These are (in descending order) the Church, milk and paper delivery, the Coastliner service , the Garage and the mobile delivery vans. 40-50% say they use the bus service to Malton, the bus service to York and the Vet. The Tearoom is only used by 37% and the Mobile Library by 22%. More than 74% of Crambeck households report using five facilities to at least some extent. These are the footpaths, the Pub, Crambeck nature trail, the Coastliner bus service and the Village Hall. A further four are used by 50% or over. These are (in descending order) the Crambeck playing fields, Crambeck tennis court, the Church and the Tearoom. 40-50% say they use the Garage, Vet, milk and paper delivery and mobile food delivery vans. Around 20-25% say they use the Mobile Library, fishing rights on Derwent, the Welburn bus service to York and the Welburn bus service to Malton. Some level of concern was expressed by over 66% of Welburn households for all but one of the facilities mentioned, should they cease to exist. The only one to fall below this level was the tearoom at 47%. Concern was expressed by over 56% of Crambeck households for all of the facilities mentioned. In many cases those expressing concern greatly exceeded those actually using the services. Given this fact, it is more appropriate to look at the numbers saying they are very concerned about closure Page 12
