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.
King's Coronation - Street Parties
Deadline for King’s Coronation Street Party applications
East Riding residents wanting to hold a street party for His Majesty The King’s Coronation don’t have long in which to apply for a road closure.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council needs to have any applications for Coronation events being held on streets, roads or highway land which require the road closing to traffic by Friday 14 April 2023.
This doesn’t apply to events being held on private land.
The King’s Coronation will be held on Saturday 6 May during a weekend of special events.
For The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee in June last year, the council received 61 applications for street parties.
Carl Skelton, acting director of Streetscene services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We’ve already had a number of applications from residents wanting to hold Coronation events, more so in recent weeks, so we know communities really want to get into the spirit.
“We just don’t want people to leave it too late, so please apply as soon as you can.”
To apply for a street party road closure, or any other events on council land, or for more information, visit www.eastriding.gov.uk/streetparty
Free Fix if TV interference occurs in Hessle
Mobile networks are being improved in Hessle boosting speed, performance and coverage. There is a small chance these upgrades may cause interference to TV received through an aerial such as Freeview, BT, TalkTalk and YouView.
Symptoms could include intermittent sound, blocky images (pixelation) or loss of TV signal.
Free support is available from Restore TV. Restore TV’s role is to ensure people can continue to enjoy free to view TV when mobile is upgraded in their area. It provides help to anyone experiencing interference to TV services caused by mobile signals. Restore TV offers additional support for people who are 75 years of age or older, are registered blind or partially sighted or receive any of the following benefits: personal independence payments (PIPs); attendance allowance; constant attendance allowance or War Pensioner’s Mobility Support.
Ben Roome, CEO of Restore TV, said: “We know just how important TV is to inform, entertain and provide welcome company. Restore TV exists to ensure we all can continue to access free to view TV as mobile services are improved across the country.”
“If you see new TV interference, we’re on hand to help you resolve the issue. We can send a Restore TV filter, free of charge, for you to fit between your aerial lead and TV or set-top box to remove mobile signals and allow you to watch free to view TV as normal. Full instructions are included, and we can provide further advice online and by phone if needed.
“In most instances, fitting the filter will resolve any issues, but if this isn’t the case, we may also be able to arrange a follow-up visit from a Restore TV engineer at no cost, depending on eligibility.”
Cable and satellite TV, such as Sky or Virgin, are not affected. However, viewers with these services, who also watch free to view TV through an aerial, can receive a free Restore TV filter.
Residents are more likely to be affected if they live in an area with weak digital television reception, have a TV signal booster and whose TV aerial is close to a mobile mast.
For residents in flats or communal buildings, Restore TV provides landlords or property managers with support to resolve the problem.
Any viewers who experience new interference to free to view TV should contact Restore TV on:
- 0808 13 13 800 (free from landlines and mobiles)

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.
