Fulstone Urban District

The Fulstone Urban District was formed at the end of 1894, replacing the Fulstone Local Board

The district was administered by Fulstone Urban District Council. The elected urban districts councils replaced Local Boards following the Local Government Act of 1894 and were given increased powers and responsibilities under the Act.

The first meeting of the council took place on Wednesday 2 January 1895. Arthur Lockwood was appointed as chairman, with the Rev. Evelyn G. Hodgson appointed vice-chairman.[1]

The Fulstone Urban District was relatively short-lived and was amalgamated with Hepworth Urban District and Scholes Urban District to become the New Mill Urban District by the end of 1895.


The extent of the urban district is show below (based on the 1906 O.S. map):
