Parish Council

A second SAM2 sign is being sought for the Parish Partnership 2020/21 - this has been applied for. It was also good to note the speedwatch team is back up and running after the lockdown. Despite an earlier refusal and a withdrawal on this site, an application is back in for 14 houses at Green Lane. If anyone disagrees write or email the borough council or leave letters at the post office. Latest Planning Applications can be seen on the Parish Council Website.



On the appropriate date, the Playing Field Committee will authorisation to re-open, from the Legal Department of GYBC, after relaxation of Covid-19 regulations. It has conducted a review of potential ways and means of operation under present restrictions. This has meant a revision of the Hire Agreement, which must be agreed to and signed by all potential hirers, either regular or irregular. This may be downloaded here.  All activities, as they resume, will be published, here.


GYBC Local Plan

The borough has published its Final Draft Local Plan Part 2. The Plan can be downloaded here together with the Filby Map. Filby's only mention is on Page 19 - no development! The full documentation can be downloaded at
