Welcome to Skidby Parish Council

What we do

Each year the Parish Council raises a precept on council tax payers to cover many of its expenses. The precept for the financial year 2024-2025 is £40,178, which represents an increase of £14.17 per year for a Band D property compared with 2023-2024 Additional funds may also be obtained from the income received by hiring out sporting facilities, fees for burials and by obtaining grants from other bodies. Parish Council activities include:

  • looking after parish property such as litter bins, seats and notice boards
  • maintaining Parish Council owned salt bins and street lights in the parish
  • maintaining the playing fields including grass cutting and hiring out the pitches and pavilion.
  • maintaining and developing the children’s play equipment at the playing fields
  • managing the Riplingham Road and Little Weighton Road cemeteries
  • maintaining the Jubilee Statue Trail
  • liaising with the East Riding of Yorkshire Council regarding issues affecting the parish, including highways problems, flooding, emergency planning, grass cutting etc.
  • liaising with Humberside Police on crime and anti-social behaviour issues, including inconsiderate parking and speeding
  • commenting on planning applications within the parish. East Riding of Yorkshire Council make the final decision on planning applications but will take into account the views of the Parish Council.
  • supporting local community activities such as the annual Christmas lights switch on and other events.
