Gill1On behalf of Embsay with Eastby Parish Council, welcome to our website.

The Parish Council has gained a reputation in recent years for being an open and transparent council – one which engages with all parts of the community and provides local residents with a clear sense of involvement.  We hope that our website is a reflection of this reputation.

The website provides information on the activities and services of the Parish Council as well as up to date news and key documentation and links to important  organisations and local services.

If you have any suggestions  or comments about the content of our website then please contact the Parish Clerk, Robert Kandt, on 01282 850851 or e-mail him by clicking here or visit our Contact Us page by clicking here.
