Welcome to Womersley Parish Council Website


22/11/21   Story from Sky News website this morning - we understand there will also be a report on the Sky News TV channel today after some filming they came and did last week.


Please also take a look at the GCAG page and consider giving anything you can to support this crucial campaign - we’ve got a real chance of overturning the original decision!


COP26 should trigger rethink over plans to move millions of tonnes of industrial waste from Britain's biggest disposal site, campaigners say

A judicial review has been granted as EP UK Investments plan to remove more than 40,000 lorry loads of pulverised fuel ash a year, for the next 25 years, from a site near Selby in North Yorkshire.

How many times have Parish Councils question why we are empowered to represent our communities and yet Parish Councils ARE NOT BEING LISTENED TO especially about Planning decisions made in our own village? 


Whitley, Cridling Stubbs, Womersley and Heck Parish Councils

have untied to challenge North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) planning process and the decision on Gale Common Planning Application. We are taking our case to High Court Judicial Review (JR). This may seem like Whitley’s problem and it does not concern our village but you are so wrong! Every planning decision on industrialisation or housing development in all our villages affects us! Your village may be next!


We need all the backing and support from our communities to get our voices heard. Please remember SDC will cease to exist soon and all decisions will be made from NYCC.


Our Parish Councils need to be heard and given more power and that is why we must win the Judicial Review and WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

To bring awareness and unite our communities, we are organising Community Events. Hopefully this first Inter-Parish/Village friendly10-pin bowling event at Selby SuperBowl on 26th November at 7.30pm will be the start of our Community and Parish Union. All funds raised will go towards our JR Challenge.


Each team from your Parish will comprise of 4 players at £25 per person. A team of 4 = £100.   Your Parish can have more than a team. Payments must be made when you register. If there are not enough teams to hold this event, it will be cancelled and all payments will be refunded.
