Please see the information below regarding the new North Yorkshire Council and how you can have your say:
On 1 April 2023, North Yorkshire Council will replace the eight councils currently delivering public services in North Yorkshire.
Over the next few months, the council will be holding the biggest countrywide conversation North Yorkshire has ever seen – ‘Let’s Talk’ – to find out which issues are most important to you, and how they can best support you and your community.
How can I take part?
The first topic of conversation will be ‘Let’s Talk Local’, and they will be asking you which local services are most important to you, and what you think of the proposed Community Networks. Teams from the council will be holding these conversations in person across North Yorkshire at the places you visit and socialise at, like libraries and street markets, and talking to members of local groups. Later in the autumn, they will be asking for your views to help shape the budget for the council, as well as the proposed devolution deal for York and North Yorkshire.
You can also share your views online or, if you’d prefer, on paper. Surveys are available in accessible formats including large print and easy read, plus selected alternative languages – simply call 01609 780780 to request your copy.
