Welcome to Newton upon Derwent's Parish Council Website

Village Sign

This website is designed to provide you with information about your local councillors and Parish clerk and about the work being done by your Local Parish Council. You will find documents containing the agendas and minutes of the Council meetings and financial reports showing what we are spending the funding on.

The Parish Council meets on Wednesday evenings in the Chapel on Main Street and hold one Full Council Meeting per month, occasional Extra-ordinary meetings (to discuss items that cannot wait until the next Full Council meeting) and once per year we hold our Annual Parish Meeting and our Annual General Meeting. At the start of every meeting we have an Open Forum, to allow anyone to speak to the Council on any subject that they would like to be discussed.

Half Moon PubThe Village
Newton upon Derwent Parish is situated in the North West corner of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Boundary. We are situated near the River Derwent, which is the boundary with York County Council Constituency. The village centre consists of approximately 100 houses, most of these being situated along the Main St. with some situated on smaller roads off. There is a public house and a Chapel/Community Centre at the heart of the village. This is where you will find the Parish Notice Board, situated inside the bus shelter. The rest of the Parish live in the area West of the Village Centre along Bull Balk and Carr Lane and on the South side of Sands Lane (situated across the A1079 ). These are mainly agricultural dwellings but there is a small development of cabin homes. Mask Lane leads, from the northernmost end of Main St., down to the River. There is a public footpath along the River bank.

There is a fascinating document about the History of the Village on the Community page.
