NLC Road Accident
Near-Miss Report Form
This online facility is designed for logging incidents when a collision is narrowly avoided, for example when a car pulls out of a junction forcing vehicles to brake sharply, OR a very minor collision takes place when the Police are not called.
This form is not for speeding, highway faults, road rage or dangerous driving reporting.
The data helps NLC and Humberside Police build up a picture of what is happening on our roads and to identify common factors, to see if minor changes can be made or whether 'high impact publicity' (to quote NLC) will ease the situation.

Computer users! End of Windows XP support - upgrade your web browser for free, now!
Windows XP has reached its end of life and as from April 2014 Microsoft will no longer offer security updates for this old operating system. Ulceby.Net STRONGLY RECOMMENDS that you no longer use Microsoft Internet Explorer for browsing websites. Windows XP is stuck at an old Version 8 of this browser and is very insecure.
Instead, get to know Firefox, Google Chrome or Opera web browsers as they will continue to be updated and modernised for the foreseeable future. They also work well on older, slower computers. There is no real reason to throw away a good Window XP computer just yet though. Be sure to keep anti-virus software up to date - they don't offer 100% protection but can help guard against common viruses. AW

Humber Bridge Electronic Toll system
Work is underway to build a new toll booth plaza featuring the latest in electronic toll systems. It will be completed late 2014.
You'll be able to buy special electronic tags to fit inside your windscreen that gives you "straight through" access without having to stop.
You'll also be able to manage your account online. We understand that tickets will still be accepted at booths, but the current ticket system is being phased out. You'll still be able to pay by cash at a [possibly automated] booth.
Delays are possible during the construction phase.
If you visit the Admin Block to buy tickets, there will be no access to the Administration Building from the toll plaza during the toll replacement works, however cars can use the Administration Building car park off Ferriby Road.
For more details please visit http://humberbridgetollproject.co.uk or visit the main Humber Bridge website.
A160 / A180 £83m UPGRADES
The A180 Port of Immingham Improvement will channel freight more efficiently to and from Immingham Docks. Construction is planned from 2015 and the scheme could be ready in Autumn 2016 (to be confirmed). Check the HA website for more information. You can also sign up for Email alerts on the HA website.
Dog Fouling problems?
Many dog owners are very responsible and clear up after their dogs, but dog fouling is one of the most complained-about problems that local authorities have to deal with. More information from NLC...
You can report dog fouling problems IN CONFIDENCE using the Dog Fouling Report Form here... You can help deal with this problem by giving as much specific details as you can to NLC. That way, they will be able to target services directly and hopefully eliminate the problem. If you want dog wardens to take action, they need YOUR help!
RE-OPENING OF ULCEBY HEALTH CENTRE -
"USE IT OR LOSE IT!"
ULCEBY HEALTH CENTRE AT ST. NICHOLAS PRIMARY SCHOOL
Ulceby Parish Council Chair Dawn Macefield writes:
"From the responses to the questionnaire in the Parish Plan, many villagers wanted the Health Centre, situated at the School, to be re-opened. The Parish Council has worked very hard over several months to try to re-establish the use of the Clinic.
"Although the village is served by five various Doctors’ Practices, only one of them, BARTON’S CENTRAL SURGERY (Dr Jaggs-Fowler and Partners) has agreed to begin using the Surgery again.
DR JAHANGIR FROM BARTON CENTRAL SURGERY WILL HOLD A WEEKLY SURGERY FOR PATIENTS – OLD AND NEW – EACH TUESDAY AFTERNOON BETWEEN 2.00 and 4.00 PM
STARTING ON TUESDAY 13th NOVEMBER 2012.
"If you wish to visit the Surgery on any Tuesday afternoon, please ring one of the following numbers on the day before, and ask for an appointment at the Ulceby Clinic.
The numbers to ring are:
(Central Surgery, Barton) or
01469 532617 (Goxhill Surgery).
