Selby is a local government district of
North Yorkshire, England. The local authority, Selby District Council, is based in the town of Selbyand provides services to an area which includes Tadcasterand a host of villages.
The district was formed on
April 1, 1974by the merger of Selby Urban Districtand parts of Derwent Rural District, Hemsworth Rural District, Osgoldcross Rural Districtand Tadcaster Rural District. Of these, Derwent Rural District was in the historic East Riding of Yorkshire, the rest being in the West Riding of Yorkshire.
April 1, 1996the parishes of Acaster Malbis, Askham Bryan, Askham Richard, Bishopthorpe, Copmanthorpe, Deighton, Dunnington, Elvington, Fulford, Heslington, Kexby, Naburnand Wheldrakewere all transferred from the district to form part of the new City of York unitary authority. According to the 2001 census these parishes had a population of 22,873.
As a result Selby is now geographically isolated from much of the rest of
North Yorkshire, and it had been suggested in now-moot plans in association with regional assemblies that it would be better annexed to the East Riding of Yorkshireunitary authority than with any of the other North Yorkshire districts.
Selby is twinned with
Carentanin France and Filderstadtin Germany.
