Latest Parish Council News

14/11/2017 Today we received a planning application affecting White House Farm, Church Lane. Its reference number is 17/03605/PLB. The deadline for comment is 5th December.
Remember that you can view all planning applications on ERYC's public access website, which you can access from this website by going to Parish Council Information/Planning Applications
13/11/2017 Minutes of the meeting of the Parish Council held on 9th November are now on this website under Parish Council Information


We should let you know that 3 people have access to edit this website. There's me, Noel Joy;  and two of the Councillors - Neil Hobbs and Steve Ashton.  Steve has done most of the work in designing the site, expanding it and updating it. Without his time and his expertise things would have progressed much more slowly. 


Welcome to our East Cottingwith & Storwood information site

sponsored by the Parish Council. 



 Whatever your view on this issue,  there are two documents from Natural England which you should see. The Parish Council agreed, on 14th September, that they should be circulated as widely as possible. One is a proposal; the second emphasises the importance of the Lower Derwent Valley for the protection and preservation of bird species under threat.
You can see them under Parish Council Information/Significant Correspondence or for direct access click here.

 Next Event: United 5 Churches Holy Communion

St Mary's on 26th November @ 10:30




Following recent incidents the Parish Council have been requested to remind everyone that there is no ‘open access’ land within the parish. This includes the full extent of the Ings where walkers (and dogs) should remain on authorised rights of way.
Please respect the area in which we live and remember to follow the Countryside Code.


< Be safe - plan ahead and follow any signs
