Welcome to Whitley Village Website


Speed Concern for: A19 Selby Road, Whitley (SE1610520)

" Good Afternoon,

By way of introductions, my name is Jamie, and I’m the Community Speed Watch Co-ordinator for North Yorkshire Police.

I am writing in response to a speed concern either from yourself or your local community and was hoping we can work together to potentially setting up a Community Speed Watch (CSW) scheme in your area.

CSW is a new scheme that is being launched across North Yorkshire designed to support local communities and improve road safety by allowing residents to address speed concerns in their local area with the support of North Yorkshire Police. At this moment I am looking to see if this is something you feel you and your community are interested in and with your support we will be happy to look to launch the scheme in your area subject to a full site risk assessment.

I have attached a guidance pack which explains the scheme in more detail. I have also attached a group registration form for you to fill in with names and details of any people who wish to participate in the scheme.

Please do let me know if this is something you think your community would (or wouldn’t) be interested in by replying to me at CommunitySpeedWatch@northyorkshire.pnn.police.uk ******

Similarly, if you have any questions regarding CSW, please get in contact and I will help in any way I can.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.


Jamie "

Whitley, or Whitley Bridge as it is known locally, can be traced back to the 13th century with connections to the Knights Templar. The site of a Templar Preceptory is situated to the south of the village.

Whitley is located close to J34 of the M62 motorway, on the A19 eight miles south of Selby. We are a growing village and want this website to contribute to the sense of community that has traditionally been such a central part of Yorkshire village life. 

The Parish Council supports this website on behalf of the local community. However, the council is not responsible for content or links on pages other than those concerning parish council business.
