Since last November the Parish Council has been holding meetings remotely using the ‘Zoom’ platform. This has proved successful with a number of local people joining the on-screen gathering. In accordance with National recommendations face to face meetings are still on hold and scheduled under the lockdown release steps, due to start again as from the 17th May, all being well.
The end of Ryedale and maybe the end of North Yorkshire too – have your say
Discussions have been ongoing for some time over the reorganisation of local government layers and units. Two proposals have been put forward to the Secretary of State by councils in North Yorkshire. Under both proposals the district councils would disappear and under one of the proposals North Yorkshire as it is now would be divided in two.
Six of the seven districts within North Yorkshire (all bar Hambleton) have proposed two unitary councils (East and West) - the East comprising Ryedale, Scarborough, Selby districts and the current unitary of York, and the West comprising Craven, Hambleton, Harrogate and Richmondshire districts. For the case for this proposal go to East & West is Best. The boundary would run between Terrington and Dalby.
North Yorkshire County Council has proposed a single unitary on the footprint of the existing administrative county, to operate alongside the existing unitary City of York Council. For the case for this proposal go to Stronger Together.
Before implementing a proposal, the Secretary of State is required to consult any persons as he considers appropriate. You can respond to one or both proposals by 19th April 2021 by following the proposal links.
