Welcome to the Hessle Town Council website.
This site has been developed to give the residents access to their Council.
We hope to regularly update these pages to communicate what the Council wishes to achieve throughout the year and what progress is being made on any current projects or issues which have been raised.
Community governance reviews
What is a community governance review?
Since the introduction of the Local Government and Public Health Act 2007 principal councils have been responsible for undertaking community governance reviews. Any reviews are undertaken in accordance with government guidelines. In some circumstances principal authorities will be able to make decisions themselves, while in others the matter will be referred elsewhere.
A community governance review can be used for the following:
- the creation of a parish
- establishing a council for a parish
- naming a parish
- the alteration of boundaries of existing parishes
- the abolition of a parish
- the dissolution of a parish council
- changes to the electoral arrangements of a parish council
- whether a parish should be grouped under a common parish council or de-grouped.
A community governance review can be undertaken following:
- a decision by the council to undertake a review of its parish arrangements
- receipt of a request from a parish council for a community governance review to be carried out
- receipt of a petition signed by local electors asking for a review to be undertaken.
For full information, including Terms of Reference please visit the East Riding Council website at:
How do I get involved and give my feedback to the review?
The initial consultation takes place from 16th January 2023 for 8 weeks until the 10th March 2023 and ensures all interested parties have the opportunity to put forward their views, ideas and any counter proposals is a key element of undertaking a community governance review. A number of channels have been designed to allow local people and all interested parties the chance to do this in the following ways:
- by using the online consultation site
- by downloading, completing, and returning a paper review feedback form:
Community Governance Review survey 2023 (word 42kb).
You can view the current parish boundaries on our interactive map.
Completed forms can be returned by post or email.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council - Help and support for households across the East Riding with the cost of living
To support residents with the cost of living, East Riding Council have launched a ‘Help for Households’ campaign. This campaign will ensure that residents are aware of the support, advice and help available to them from the government, from local partners and ERYC’s own council services.
Information about support, advice and help together with sign-posting is currently arranged under seven headings to enable residents to find relevant information as easily as possible. The dedicated one-stop website is now available to view by clicking on the link:
This information spans current available provision from the government, partners and ERYC’s own services. New additional provisions and routes of access are being added as soon as they become available to residents.
Residents without access to the internet and in need of help can contact the council by telephoning: (01482) 393939.
For businesses, a summary of help, advice and support is also now available by clicking the following link: https://www.eastriding.gov.uk/business/cost-of-living-help-for-businesses/
Welcoming places are being established across the East Riding to provide somewhere warm for residents to visit during the colder months.
Community groups will be able to apply for grants to open their venues as welcoming spaces while East Riding libraries will be opening their doors to people to offer a warm and welcoming place.
As part of the Do it for East Yorkshire community grant, organisations and community groups, including those who have previously received funding from the scheme, can now apply for grants between £1,500 and £5,000 specifically for opening their venues on a regular basis to provide welcoming places.
