Escrick Parish Council Update

Bus stops: We are waiting for City of York Council to confirm installation timescales for an additional streetlight opposite the Sang Thai to improve lighting on the way to, and at, the bus stops.


  • At the time of writing, one dropped kerb has been installed. The remaining dropped kerbs and the village gateway on Skipwith Road have both been delayed due to North Yorkshire County Council having supply chain issues.  
  • The Parish Council has been made aware of concerns about the condition of the pavement on Wenlock Drive. These have been passed to Selby District Council (responsible for sweeping/cleaning) and North Yorkshire County Council (responsible for maintenance). In the meantime, if any public spirited residents wish to sweep the areas near their property we would be very grateful.

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

Get involved! We’re still looking for volunteers in several areas:

  • Playground: Some of the equipment in the playground is approaching end of life. We’re looking for volunteers to join the playing fields association to develop plans for replacing the aging equipment, and pursue funding opportunities such as grant funding, donations and fund-raising.
  • Escrick 10k: We’re looking for someone to chair the organising committee. This run raises £5k - £7k each year for the playground and other local causes. A full handover will be given. An established event plan is in place, and an experienced committee, including race director, is in place .

If you are interested in getting involved in any of the above, please contact

Parish Council meeting dates: 10th January, 7th February and 7th March. All meetings at 7.30pm at Escrick and Deighton Club. Contact: Clerk (Sally Look),, Chair (Richard Rowson),; Website:
