Escrick is currently served by 'Fibre to the Cabinet' (FTTC) broadband. This typically gives speeds between 30 - 70mbps depending upon the distance from the cabinet on the A19.
Openreach do not currently have plans to upgrade Escrick to 'full fibre to the premises' (FTTP).
Escrick was included the phase two of the Government's 'Project Gigabit' programme: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/uk-gigabit-programme-west-yorkshire-and-parts-of-north-yorkshire-public-review which may provide funding for fibre broadband in future.
In the meantime, a separate provider, Factco, have announced their intention to provide their own fibre broadband network in Escrick, and recently installed a service cabinet for this on the A19.
Some areas of the village have received noticed advising that telegraph poles will be installed to carry the fibres to houses. Installation is expected to commence in March 2023. More details can be found on Factco's website: https://factco.co.uk/projects/escrick/

THE MONDAY PLAYERS presents ABIGAIL'S PARTY
by Mike Leigh
Let’s travel back to the 1970s and a time of cheese and pineapple on sticks, paisley prints, and Demis Roussos. This evening, suburban socialite Beverly and her husband Laurence are hosting a drinks party, despite Laurence arriving home late from work. They have invited their new neighbors, married couple Tony and Angela, along with their recently divorced, next door neighbor Susan, who has been banished from her home as her teenage daughter Abigail is throwing her first party. As the drinks flow, tensions rise. Beverly flirts with Tony, while Laurence sulks on the sofa. Sniping, bickering, and drunken dancing ensue, until the evening comes to a sudden close...
Thursday 19th, Friday 20th, Saturday 21st May 2022 at 7.30pm
The Village Hall, Escrick
Tickets available from:

The Escrick Parish Council website has been updated.
The Parish Council website now adopts the Government standards for design and accessibility of public authority websites. This helps ensure that website is accessible to as many people as possible, including those with visual impairments.
To simplify compliance with Government standards for public authority websites, this 'new' website of www.escrick.org.uk has been set-up to provide local information that is not directly related to the Parish Council. Any pages that were previously part of the Parish Council website that are not directly related to the Parish Council have been moved across.
If you were registered for email updates on the Parish Council website you will continue to receive these for updates on the Parish Council website. You will however need to register separately for any updates on this website by following this link.

Escrick Parish Council Update
Bus stops: We are waiting for City of York Council to confirm installation timescales for an additional streetlight opposite the Sang Thai to improve lighting on the way to, and at, the bus stops.
Highways: Dropped kerbs are in the process of being installed at many of the junctions in the village to aid wheelchair and pushchair users. A ‘village gateway’ is due to be installed on Skipwith Road at the entrance to the village from the south, as a speeding mitigation measure.
Shop: A working group is continuing to develop proposals for a shop in the village. Additionally, plans are at an advanced stage to pilot a mobile Post Office in the village.
Planning - NDP: Consultation on Escrick’s Neighbourhood Development Plan concludes on 4th April. Selby District Council will then appoint an independent examiner to review the plan. If that is successful, there will then be a public referendum for adoption of the plan.
Planning – Local Plan: The next stage of consultation on Selby District Council’s local plan has been deferred until the summer due to the elections in May. This stage of consultation is expected to include a recommendation as to whether or not to proceed with the proposed Heronby new settlement.
Planning – Conservation Area Review: Selby District Council’s ‘Conservation Area Review’ is expected to be approved in April. This proposes to withdraw the Permitted Development Rights of householders to alter, replace or remove, doors, windows, boundary walls and roofs for all properties within the Conservation Area.
Jubilee celebrations: Various activities are being coordinated by groups in the village for the Jubilee long-weekend, in addition to a Jubilee garden initiative. Details will be published directly by those organising these. The Parish Council has agreed to take on the lease for the land to be used for the Jubilee Garden, and to apply for various grants on behalf of the volunteers.
Council changes and elections: As residents may be aware, Central Government has decided that the current three-tier structure of County, District and Parish Councils is to be replaced with a new two-tier structure. There will be a new ‘North Yorkshire Council’, where Escrick will become part of a new ‘Cawood and Escrick’ division, and new Parish Councils will be elected with existing boundaries. Elections will be held in May for both the new unitary authority and Parish Council. There will then be a transition year whilst the new authority gets ready to take over from 1st April 2023. More: https://www.northyorks.gov.uk/new-council-and-devolution-north-yorkshire. Anyone wishing to stand as a Councillor for either authority must have their nominations submitted to Selby District Council by 5th April: https://www.selby.gov.uk/nycc2022
Parish Council meeting dates: 4th April and 9th May. All meetings at 7.30pm at Escrick and Deighton Club. Contact: Clerk (Sally Look), firstname.lastname@example.org, Chair (Richard Rowson), email@example.com; Website: escrick.org
