Parish Councils

The Nidderdale Plus Partnership seeks to support and work with all parish councils within the area – strategically through the Nidderdale Strategic Partnership and locally through support for projects such as the Parish Caretaker scheme. In addition, parish councils are able to make use of our printing services and meeting space within the Partnership Office.

Nidderdale Strategic Partnership (NSP)

The Nidderdale Strategic Partnership is formed of an Executive which meets four times a year and a Wider Strategic partnership which meets three times a year.  The NSP seeks to share useful information to all those living in the wider Nidderdale area and to be an active voice on behalf of residents.  All parish councils in the wider Nidderdale area are invited to attend the wider meetings. 

Nidderdale Plus provides the management and administration for the NSP. Please follow this link to find out more about the NSP and see the most recent munutes of meetings and the constitution.
