New Mill Urban District

The New Mill Urban District was formed towards the end of 1895, with the merging of the urban districts of Hepworth, Scholes and Fulstone.

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.

Under the Representation of the People Act of 1918, the urban district became part of the Colne Valley Parliamentary Division.[1]

New Mill Urban District was abolished in 1938 following a country review (under the terms of the Local Government Act of 1929) and amalgamated into an enlarged Holmfirth Urban District.
