Nether Poppleton is now a village and civil parish in the unitary authority of the City of York in Yorkshire, England. It is situated by the west bank of the River Ouse adjacent to Upper Poppleton, and west of York close to the A59 road from York to Harrogate. The village is served by Poppleton railway station on the Harrogate Line. According to the 2001 UK census, the parish had a population of 2,077.

Historically, Nether Poppleton was an ecclesiastical parish in Ainsty Wapentake. From 1894 until 1938, the parish was located in Great Ouseburn Rural District and from 1938 until 1974 in Nidderdale Rural District. In 1974 the area became part of the Harrogate District of North Yorkshire. In 1996 the City of York became a unitary authority and absorbed some of the neighbouring rural civil parishes. Nether Poppleton now lies within the Rural West Ward of the City of York Unitary Authority.
