Highways Update 

Earlier this year Parish Councillors and residents from Southbank met with Selby Highways Dept. to discuss options to improve road safety on the A659.  Selby agreed to draw up a plan to reduce the speed limit to 40 mph. 

The Parish Council is pleased to report that an Order to reduce the speed limit to 40 mph came into effect from 2nd December 2019.  The speed limit will apply from the eastern property boundary of Station House, going west for 563m.  The appropriate signage will be in place as soon as possible. 

The Council has also made contact with Leeds City Council to request  improvements to  the footpath towards Boston Spa and will be monitoring progress. 

Discussions will continue with Selby to consider the use of Vehicle Activated Signs and to discuss improvements to the width of the road by the traffic island.

Welcome to the website for the village of Newton Kyme cum Toulston in North Yorkshire, produced for the benefit of residents and managed by the Parish Council.

Newton Kyme cum Toulston lies at the north-western edge of Selby District Council.

Newton Kyme cum Toulston is a rural village, with a conservation area in its centre, and a mix of buildings from traditional limestone cottages to modern family housing. The village is located just off the A659 road, separated by Green Belt land from the nearest neighbouring village of Boston Spa and the town of Tadcaster.

Leeds, York, and Harrogate are easily accessible by road and there is access to the A1 through Boston Spa making for easy travel to all parts of the country. Both Leeds and York stations are served by the East Coast mainline railway providing fast & frequent services to London and Edinburgh, and the rest of the UK for travel elsewhere.
Within this site you will find information about the village of Newton Kyme cum Toulston and the work of the Parish Council which we hope will be of help to both current residents, and those thinking of moving here.
