Whitby parish poll

Friday, 27 May 2022

A parish poll will take place in Whitby on Monday 13 June between 4pm and 9pm.

Residents can only take part in the poll by visiting their local polling station. Unlike an election, they will not be able to vote by post or proxy and no polling cards will be issued.

The questions being posed in the poll are:

  • Should all new build and additional housing in Whitby parish be restricted to full time local occupation as a primary residence only and forever (in perpetuity)?
  • Do you want to stay in the same area committee as Scarborough in the new North Yorkshire unitary council?

Residents will be able to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ to each of the questions.

  • Whitby Mission & Seafarers' Centre, Haggersgate House, Haggersgate, Whitby, YO21 3PP
