HEDON could soon have its own life-saving, public-access defibrillator machine installed onto the outside wall of the Town Hall.
The planning application (submitted by Hedon Town Council) to install the machine has been a lengthy process because the machine has been earmarked for the historic listed building and planners are concerned that the character of the building does not suffer any negative impacts.
The East Riding of Yorkshire Council responsible for the planning process has invited people with comments and/or objections to the scheme to respond to the consultation process by Tuesday 2nd December 2014. Visit 14/02400/plb on http://newplanningaccess.eastriding.gov.uk/newplanningaccess/
The defibrillator was bought by funds raised by the Helpful Hands Lifestyle Group with the support of Yorkshire Water and the Community Heartbeat Trust.
Once operational, the machine will be available to use in cases of emergency when people in the vicinity experience a cardiac arrest and stop breathing.
Progress report will be given at Thursday’s meeting (27th November, 7:15) of the Town Council
