A message from the Chairman

Welcome to the Website of Seamer Parish Council. 

Seamer Parish Council is constituted as a local authority and first met in 1894 under the Local Government Act of that year.

The Council covers a large rural area together with Seamer Village and Crossgates near Scarborough in North Yorkshire.

The Council is here to serve all parishioners and we hope you will contact any Councillor or the clerk on issues affecting the Parish. Please see the Members|Responsibilities page of this website for individual contact details for Members of the Council and the Contact page for details of the clerk. The Council will do what it can within its powers to assist with matters raised.

Our Publication Scheme (Freedom of Information - Guide to Information), along with our Code of Conduct & Standing Orders, Terms of Reference and other Policies & Procedures are available on the Documents page of this website.

For matters which are the responsibility of North Yorkshire Council see Home | North Yorkshire Council, register, complete and send a simple request form direct to the local team at North Yorkshire Council Self Service Requests or telephone  0300 131 2131 or more quickly locally 01723 23 23 23. 

Similarly non-emergency reports should be made directly to North Yorkshire Police by e-mail on their 101 Occurrence E-mail Reporting Form at the bottom of the Police|Trading Standards page of this website or by telephone on 101. The Police’s advice is to report anti-social and offending behaviour promptly directly to them, with images if possible and safe to do so, and with as much detail as possible to increase the likelihood of identifying and dealing with those responsible.
