Header Image for Barlby & Osgodby Town Council

Barlby with Osgodby is a civil parish in the Selby district of North Yorkshire, England, just to the north of Selby. The parish comprises Barlby Village, Barlby Bridge (Selby East Ward) and Osgodby and has a population of 5,070 according to the North Yorkshire Parish population figures, 2015. 


When face to face Meetings are resumed, unless advertised otherwise, they will be held at Barlby Library and Community Hub and commence at 7.00 p.m. 

The next Meeting of the Town Council at Barlby Library and Community Hub will be announced when further Government advice regarding gatherings is received. Until such time it is anticipated that Meetings will be held remotely. 

To attend a remote Meeting please contact the Council Manager and provide an Email address (by the day prior to the Meeting) so a link to the Meeting can be provided. 


The Town Council continues a planned programme of Play Area re-furbishments. 

The old equipment was nearing the end of its useful life and this project  will provide more exciting play for local children to enjoy. The improvements include a 'basket' swing, a multi seat roundabout, a 'hover' see saw, infant swing and a small multi play unit. 

South Duffield Road, Osgodby will be the next site to be improved.  

The Town Council provides Play Areas/Playing fields at Bungalow Road, Barlby Bridge - South Duffield Road, Osgodby,  Wainhomes, Barby and a small local site at Peartree/Riverside Close. This is a big undertaking for a Parish and far more than any other Parishes in the area. The Council hopes that the local community will not only appreciate the facilities on offer but also help to keep them as something to be proud of by reporting any anti social behaviour.

LIBRARY Phased Re-opening

The Library is now open for 'Select and Collect' on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons from 2.00 - 4.00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10.00 a.m. - 12 Noon. This has been developed to introduce a contactless service for customers. Customers need to  either phone the Community Library (708848) or Library HQ (01609533878) to express reading preferences. Customers will then be contacted to arrange collection of their books. There is no charge for this service.   

The Library will be open for public browsing and computer use from Tuesday 11th August. A great deal of planning has gone into ensuring that volunteers and customers have confidence that we have safe measures in place including protective screens, hand sanitisers, wipes and clear floor markings/one way system to assist with social distancing. Items which cannot be easily cleaned have been removed.

A maximum of 6 customers (including one PC user if present) will be allowed in the building at any one time. A family of 4 persons will be allowed in the Junior section if capacity allows. Slots of 15 minutes will be allocated unless the Library is quiet when this may be extended to 30 minutes. We are sure customers will understand and follow the guidelines to prevent queues forming.  

Face coverings are now mandatory in the Library (with some exemptions). A North Yorkshire Track and Trace system will also be in operation.

PLEASE NOTE : The toilet is closed until further notice.  

Please watch this space for more information.
