Consultation on our sport and leisure service becoming a local authority controlled company

Our sport and leisure services are used over a million times a year and delivers both significant health and well being results and financial income. We would like your opinion on a proposal for our sport and leisure service becoming a local authority controlled company.

A local authority controlled company is a company owned by us which operates at arms length. This gives the company the opportunity to innovate in how it delivers the services we want it to deliver.

Please complete the short questionnaire.

The closing date is 29 May 2020.

Pateley Bridge recycling survey

We are reviewing the recycling provisions in the Pateley Bridge area. We are interested to know what you do with any recyclable waste that you generate and would value your feedback so that we can continue to improve our recycling service for local residents.

We want to understand more about your use of the kerbside recycling collection and the mini recycling centres at the Southlands Carpark on Nidd Walk in Pateley Bridge and the layby at Lofthouse.

When completing the consultation, please refer to your usual waste practices before the lockdown period.

The consultation will end on 12 July 2020.

Play area at Ripon Leisure Centre

Works to build a new swimming pool at Ripon Leisure Centre has already begun. As part of this project, we will be investing £100,000 to build a brand new play area on the site. This is a great opportunity to create a 'destination' play area for Ripon.

This consultation will gather opinions from local residents to help us create the most suitable design for the play area. The public consultation report will be used to create a wish list for the design brief, which will influence the final decision.

Public consultation on Contaminated Land Inspection Strategy 2020-2025

We have reviewed our Contaminated Land Inspection Strategy 2020-2025, and it has now been released for consultation.

The industrial developments that occurred in the 19th and 20th centuries have resulted in some areas of our urban environment being affected by contamination. In addition, changes in the type and volume of refuse we produce has caused an increase in the amount of land being used to dispose of our non-recyclable waste. As a consequence we face a legacy of contaminated land which, in some cases, can be hazardous to our health and the environment.

The contaminated land regime places a duty on the council to inspect land within the district for the purpose of identifying and removing unacceptable risks to human health and the wider environment as a result of historic contamination.

In order to carry out this objective the council is required to prepare and publish a strategy for inspecting its area for contaminated land.

Your feedback is important to us and this public consultation will provide you with the opportunity to express your views on the council's Contaminated Land Inspection Strategy 2020-2025.

To submit your views please complete the Contaminated Land Inspection Strategy questionnaire.

The consultation closes the 25 March 2020.

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.
