Parish council elections

Parish or town councils are the most local level of government in England. They are independent of other levels of local government; however, they maintain a close working relationship with us.

There are 731 parishes in North Yorkshire. Some parish councils in our county are known as town or city councils but have the same role as a parish council. They will all hold elections at different times of the year depending on their circumstances, this page has all the information on the current parish council elections.
