From 1 April 2023, North Yorkshire Council will replace the county council and seven district and borough councils in North Yorkshire to deliver all the public services your local council currently provides. Having one new council will save money by joining up services to end duplication, helping to support services so they are stronger and fit for the future, as well as fund local decision-making. We’ve launched ‘Let’s Talk’, the biggest countywide conversation that North Yorkshire has ever seen about the issues that we think matter to all of us.
Let’s Talk Local – have your say before 23 December.
We’re asking you which local services are most important to you, what you’d like to improve in your local area, and what you think of proposed Community Networks. We’re holding these conversations in person across Ryedale at the places you visit and socialise – find out where these events are taking place via the link.
Let’s Talk Devolution – have your say before 16 December
The proposed devolution deal for York and North Yorkshire will help to shape the region’s economic future by offering devolved powers and millions of pounds to spend locally, as well the chance to select a mayor to champion our area. Is devolution the right way forward? Tell us what you think.
Let’s Talk Money – have your say before 23 December
The new council will serve the greatest geographical area of any local authority in the country, and it will have an overall spend of £1.4 billion. We want to know what matters to you before we agree the new council’s budget, find out what you think about council tax and hear your ideas for savings.
