Welcome to Lothersdale Parish Council.

Lothersdale is a village and civil parish in the Craven district of North Yorkshire, England. It is a small community of about 200 houses situated near Skipton and located within the triangle formed by Skipton, Cross Hills and Colne. Local amenities include a recreation ground, church, pub, village hall, clubhouse and primary school. The Pennine Way runs through the middle of the village.

The Parish Council has 5 elected members and meets in the Club House on the second Monday of most months (except for August when there is no meeting) at 7.30 p.m. It decides on the amount of local taxes (the precept), planning applications, and numerous other issues pertaining to local life.

Residents are welcome to attend the meetings during which there is time set aside for questions to be asked and comments made.

Can’t wait until the next meeting to discuss an issue? Then please CONTACT one of the Councillors or the clerk to see if we can help.
