Virtual road show date in Scarborough and Whitby to help residents understand North Yorkshire Council’s new powers

Senior officials from eight county, city and county councils from across North Yorkshire have joined forces to host virtual events.

People will be able to hear directly about changes in local self-government and how plans for the new government are being formed.

The six sessions will be offered at different locations across the constituency (depending on the six parliamentary constituencies) and will also give residents the opportunity to ask questions about the changes.

County Hall, Northallerton.

Plans call for the current county councils and the district and city councils of Craven, Hambleton, Harrogate, Richmondshire, Rydale, Scarborough and Selby to be replaced by a single council in April 2023.

Until then, services will continue to be provided by North Yorkshire County Council and seven district and city councils.

Richard Flinton, Chief Executive of North Yorkshire County Council said: “As we move forward with our change and transformation, we want to reassure the people of North Yorkshire that we are committed to informing and engaging you along the way.

“We value your opinion and the roadshow will also help answer any questions and dispel any concerns you may have.

“This is an exciting time for North Yorkshire and we are working with colleagues and partners across the county and county to ensure the best results for our local residents.

“In preparation for April 1, 2023, we will continue to have a one-to-one conversation with residents, communities, emergency services, our partners in health, education, and the volunteer sector, as well as our members, our cities and wards, and our employees. ”

The road show will virtually visit cities in North Yorkshire next month.

Sessions are free and open to all residents of North Yorkshire.
