The hub of the community, Camblesforth Chapel. Home of youth activities, and a meeting place for much more!
We are all passionate about our village, and this website is designed to aid our community working together to enhance Camblesforth, the family village we love.
Please use the navigation bar on the left hand side to find further information about the village and the parish councillors.
The next Parish Council meeting will be held on the 3rd Wednesday of the month (excluding December) in Camblesforth Chapel, we would love to see you there.
Once again we regret to advise vandalism in the park area. Several trees have had branches severed, some so badly they may have to be felled. Pictures here
As well as destroying a community amenity, this type of mindless behaviour is causing the Parish Council and everyone who pays Council Tax considerable amounts of money, which could be spent on far better things in the village and infrastructure.
We would urge anyone who has any information about this vandalism to contact the police, as below

Report Dog Fouling
The Parish Council shares the concerns of many residents who have reported an increase in dog fouling in the village. A minority of irresponsible dog owners are not cleaning up after their dogs on pavements, open areas and even more worryingly, grassed play areas.
The Parish Council will be working with Selby District Council’s Dog Warden to proactively manage this problem in the village and dog owners are reminded that they can be fined up to £1,000 if they do not clean up after their dog.
We would encourage anyone witnessing a dog fouling incident to report this to any of the Parish Councillors, Parish Clerk or alternatively Selby District Council, via their website
Dog owners – when walking your dog
We would ask all dog walkers to note that all the public grass areas in the village (the park, Millennium Garden and Memorial Garden) are out of bounds for dogs, even on leads. These areas are clearly sign posted as no dog areas. Please respect these restrictions. The Parish Council will take legal action against anyone who wilfully and intentionally ignores these signs
Please check out our latest press release, ‘Appeal for support from the public to tackle dog fouling’.
The Parish Council occasionally receives complaints of anti-social behaviour. If such an occurrence arises please report your issue to the police on their non-emergency line:
0845 60 60 247
So they can act to rectify the situation. We have raised issues with the police in the past, which they were not aware of and hence could do nothing about. Incidents can be reported anonymously and if you ask them not to call at your address they will of course oblige.
Please inform the Parish Council of any concerns regarding crimes, as we raise them at the quarterly Join Action Group (JAG) meetings held by the district council and North Yorkshire Police. Please email or come along to one of our meetings to let us know if there is an issue.
