Electoral Cycle consultation
Harrogate Borough Council has been consulting on how often we should vote for our councillors. Your views on whether we should change to 'whole' council elections every four years starting in May 2018 or retain the existing system of election 'by thirds' will be considered in the final decision.
Electoral Cycle Survey: Summary
Consultation on the proposal to create a Parish Council for Pannal and Burn Bridge
In July 2014 Pannal Village Society submitted a petition to the council requesting that the council undertake a Community Governance Review to consider the creation of a parish council for Pannal and Burn Bridge. As part of the review the council consulted with electors within the proposed area of the parish council, local businesses and groups and other interested parties. The consultation has now ended and a copy of the results are available on the Community Governance Review page. Harrogate Borough Council will consider the consultation responses and will make recommendations on whether to form a new parish council and how it will work.
More information including the Terms of Reference of the review, a map of the proposed area and a copy of the consultation results are available on the Community Governance Review page.
