Welcome to Yarmouth Town Council

The former Yarmouth CE Primary School closed at the end of 2022 and the premises and associated land has been marketed by the Isle of Wight Council. Yarmouth Town Council successfully applied to register the property as an Asset of Community value, details of which can be found here: AVC.

A Steering Group was formed with the aim of retaining the site as a community educational resource for generations to come; Yarmouth Town Council and the Group consulted with residents about suggested uses for the site and those suggestions formed the basis of a sealed bid to IWC for purchase of the site via a Community Land Trust. In March 2024, IWC announced that the preferred bidder was Yarmouth Community Foundation,  whose bid had similar aims to YTC, and Yarmouth Town Council will work with them to develop the site for the benefit of the Yarmouth and Thorley communities.
More details can be found here, including an update about latest developments: https://www.yarmouthtowncouncil.co.uk/yarmouth-school-site-sale/

Yarmouth Town Council has begun a Neighbourhood plan which is hoped will give the Council more control over local developments. More details can be found on the Neighbourhood Plan web page  https://www.yarmouthtowncouncil.co.uk/neighbourhood-plan/
