Welcome to Barwick in Elmet & Scholes Parish Council website.  As well as providing statutory information such as meetings agendas and minutes we aim to be a source that gives access to local events, organisations and information.  A point of contact to your elected representatives and the clerk to the council and a place that keeps you updated on issues that may affect the parish. Topics such as planning submissions,  the Neighbourhood Development Plan Review as well as hiring Scholes Sports Pavilion, football field, Muga and Tennis Court or renting a parish council allotment.
