Welcome to the website of Skelton Parish Council

The picturesque village of Skelton is situated 3 miles North of the City of York, North Yorkshire, England.

The Parish Council owns and maintains bus shelters and a number of green spaces in the village including The Green, Crooking Green, Orchard Field and The Pasture. Skelton Cemetery, which is situated about a mile out of the village on Moor Lane, is also owned and maintained by the Council. From 2009 the Council has provided and maintains a comprehensively equipped children’s playground at Brecksfield.

City of York Council are required to consult the Parish Council on all planning applications within the Parish.

The Council’s activities are principally funded from a proportion of the Council Tax plus occasional grants from City of York Council and Cemetery Fees.

The Council in turn makes grants to a number of organisations in Skelton including the Village Hall Management Committee and the Parish Newsletter. Elections for the nine members of the Council are held every four years. Council Meetings are normally held on the fourth Thursday of each month in the Village Hall with an open forum preceding each meeting. Parishioners are encouraged to speak at the open forums and to stay and observe the proceedings of the Council Meetings. All Council meeting agendas and minutes are displayed on the village notice boards.

For details of meetings see the Documents Page of this site where the agenda is included one week prior to the meeting.
