Welcome to the new
Dunnington Parish Council website
Dunnington is a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of the City of York in North Yorkshire, England, approximately 4 miles east of York city centre. This website is the place to find information about the village and parish of Dunnington, including the activities and work of the Parish Council.
As our previous website had served its purpose we have taken the opportunity to review and overhaul the content. We hope that you will find the new format much more pleasing to read and easier to navigate. At the same time we have been able to reduce our annual website running costs considerably which means that this saving can be directed elsewhere for the benefit of the community.
Whilst we have had to retain a lot of the content, which we have updated, we have removed some old pages and added some new pages as we think that it is very important to provide a medium by which useful and up to date information regarding the Parish can be easily accessed. The content ranges from Parish Council meeting agendas and minutes to our emerging Neighbourhood Plan plus many other items including planning applications, probably our most visited page. Please have a look through yourself at the range of content as we are sure you will find something interesting to read or fact to find.
We have always tried to keep the website content up to date but as it has grown this does become a challenge. In fact if you have any suggestions to change or add to the website that you would like to see, or spot an inaccuracy, please let us know via the contact page so that we can give the matter further consideration.
We want as many people to know about and view the website as possible as we consider that it forms a valuable contribution to the fabric of the Parish and village complimenting the other forms of media currently in use as a source of providing local information.
