Acaster Lane Part-Flooded

The parish of Acaster Malbis lies on the west bank of the River Ouse some four miles south west of the City of York.  It is a rural parish covering circa 1800 acres [see map] and has approximately 800 residents.  Acaster Malbis Parish Council makes decisions on many issues that affect the local community probably the most common of which relate to planning matters (the parish council is a statutory consultee).

Working closely with other tiers of local government, especially the City of York Council (CoYC), Acaster Malbis Parish Council has the power to raise money through taxation which is called the precept.  The precept is a share of the council tax which assists the council in its statutory activities in managing open spaces, maintaining its public assets and campaigning for better services and facilities for the community.
Where possible the council provides grants for qualifying bodies.


The parish council normally meets on the 2nd Monday of the month.

Our next meeting is on 10 June 2024.


There are a several group in the parish that offer grants.

If you are looking for a grant for some purpose, take a look at the Grants page to see if there is help available.
