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.
Boundary Commission - Have your say
Constituency boundaries are changing, and it’s your final chance to help shape the new map.
The Boundary Commission for England (BCE) is required by of all constituencies in England, to rebalance the number of electors in each constituency. Constituency sizes currently vary widely due to population changes since the last boundary review. The new map proposed by the Commission will make sure each constituency has between 69,724 and 77,062 electors, so that each MP represents roughly the same number of electors.
The 2023 Boundary Review also requires that the number of constituencies in England increases from 533 to 543. The Commission has listened to the feedback sent in from the public, and have changed nearly half of the initial proposals published last year. The new revised proposals are now available to view via an interactive map on the consultation website: https://www.bcereviews.org.uk/
A final public consultation is open now until 5 December and is the last chance to provide your views on new constituency boundaries. The Boundary Commission for England has invited the public to visit the consultation website and comment on the proposals via the website, email or letter. Hard copies of the proposals are available to view at public places of deposit listed on the Boundary Commission for England website.
You can give your feedback on anything from where the proposed electoral boundaries are, to the suggestions for new constituency names.
To tell the Commission whether the new proposals for constituencies best represent your local community, visit: https://www.bcereviews.org.uk/ and have your say before 5 December.

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.
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.
