What we do

Wheldrake Parish Council's purpose is to improve well-being in the community and to help provide better services to people living in the parish

It does this by:

- Providing some local services

- Passing on the views of local people

- Protecting the environment and the greenbelt

The council has a range of discretionary powers, including raising a precept – a form of council tax used to fulfil duties and raise funding on occasion for community driven projects.

The council:

- Liaises with City of York Council and comments on all planning applications

- Represents village interests with other groups

- Manages village assets such as the playground

- Supports village organisations

The Council has limited direct power but it voices grass-roots opinion. It negotiates with and influences organisations who make the final decisions.


Meetings typically take place on the last Wednesday of the month, starting at 7.00pm in Church Cottage (unless otherwise stated). Members of the public are free to join the meeting and listen in to council business. The agenda for the meeting is posted three working days prior to the meeting. There will be an audio recording taken of meetings for the purpose of minute taking.

If you would like to have an item added to the agenda or speak at the meeting, then please contact the Parish Clerk
