The reorganisation of local government in North Yorkshire and York

The government has launched a consultation into the future of local government in the city of York and the county of North Yorkshire. It wants to replace the current two-tier structure with unitary authorities to provide all local services.

We, along with the councils of the Craven, Richmondshire, Ryedale and Selby districts and the borough of Scarborough have submitted proposals for an 'east and west' model of two, balanced, unitary organisations.

Our joint proposal is to create two new authorities, set up to succeed for the long-term prosperity of York and North Yorkshire, one in the east, and one in the west.

The 'east' unitary would cover the districts of Ryedale and Selby, the city of York and the borough of Scarborough. The area includes the North York Moors National Park, the coast, key historical towns and cities and a range of market towns and villages.

The 'west' unitary would cover the Craven, Hambleton and Richmondshire districts and the borough of Harrogate. This area includes the Yorkshire Dales National Park, cultural and historic attractions within major towns, a strong agricultural centre and the largest British army base in Europe at Catterick Garrison.

Find out more about the east and west model on the Get Change Right website. Please make sure your views on the future of local government are captured by taking part in the consultation.

The closing date is 19 April.

Electric vehicle charging point survey

We are exploring the demand for electric vehicle (EV) charging points within the district. We would like feedback from residents, businesses and visitors to gauge the level of need to inform our decision making process for the next stages of our roll out of EV charging points. We are unable to provide on-street charging points we will share the feedback with our colleagues at North Yorkshire County Council and explore alternative arrangements if possible. We are also supporting a University of Leeds student with their degree course and would appreciate you taking the time to complete this short survey questionnaire.

Rapid charging points

We have been operating rapid charging points at the civic centre since December 2017. We are seeking user feedback so that we can improve the service and provide better value for the customer and the council.

We would appreciate your feedback to help us to make these improvements.
