The Town Council runs its services from purpose based offices at the Town Hall situated in the centre of Town.
All services are delivered by a relatively small team of 12. The team is led by Gill and is made up of 6 other officers and 5 resource team members.
The population of Selby Town is around 16,000 residents and is expanding all the time with new housing developments.
The Town is split into 4 wards – Selby North, Selby South, Selby West and St James Ward – covered by 18 elected Councillors. The contact details for the Councillors in your ward are on the Town Councils website Meet Your Councillors – Selby Town Council
The Town Council is responsible for:
We are always adding to this list!
We purchased the 1811 Building on New Lane in the spring of 2019 and we have exciting plans for the building.
We aim to restore the inside of the building sympathetically in the near future.
The Selby & District Foodbank moved into the ground floor of the building after they contacted us to say they had outgrown their previous premises.
Due to the current pandemic we are using the upstairs of the building for some members of the office team to enable the Town Council to continue delivering services safely and effectively.
The Town Hall was built in 1862 and was originally a Methodist Chapel. It ceased to be used as a place of worship in August 1956 and for many years before the Town Council purchased in 1992 was used as a tyre depot.
Look out for future posts where we will introduce the team and Councillors and their roles in more depth along with more information about all our venues and responsibilities.
