Parish Magazine update - March 2021

The following update appears in March 2021 Parish Magazine:

Escrick Parish Council Update


The police undertook spot checks on vehicles travelling on Skipwith Road through the village. They found that all vehicles were either under the 7.5T limit, or had a legitimate exemption to be using the road.

Bus stop:

A bus shelter has been installed for the York-bound bus stop. Councillors reviewed options from City of York Council for lighting the stops. The Parish Council agreed in principle to provide funding for City of York Council to install lighting, but asked City of York Council to propose lighting appropriate for the setting in a rural conservation area with consideration to the impact on nearby properties.

Playing Field:

The Parish Council has agreed to allow Wheldrake Junior Football Club (which many of the children in the village attend) to use the playing field for Saturday morning sessions. Guidance on parking has been provided, and this will initially be every other week for one season to gauge feedback.


Selby District Council is consulting on its new ‘local plan’ until 12th March.  This is a plan that sets out a vision and framework for future growth of Selby district, identifying where new housing, employment and other development could take place.  Several sites have been submitted for consideration within Escrick Parish. Please see the Parish Council website for more details:

Vacancies: We  have three vacancies for Parish Councillors. Please contact the clerk or chair if you are interested in getting involved.
