2018 Boundary Review - Initial proposals for Parliamentary constituency boundaries

On 13 September 2016 the Boundary Commission for England published its initial proposals for new parliamentary constituency boundaries. This marks the start of 12 weeks of consultation on those proposals, during which the Commission is inviting people to view and comment on the new boundaries. The Commission is an independent public body, and must make its recommendations for new Parliamentary boundaries to Parliament in September 2018. This is the first of three rounds of consultation which will be undertaken before that date.

The plans showing the proposals for North Yorkshire constituencies, and for the Harrogate and Knaresborough constituency in particular, are now on display in the reception area at the Council Offices, Crescent Gardens in Harrogate.

For the 2018 Review the Commission is promoting use of a consultation website as the primary tool for displaying proposals and receiving comments on them. This is available at The proposals and maps for the whole of the district – and the rest of England – are published on the website.

Proposed changes to games in parks provision

We are seeking opinions about some proposed changes to our current provision at the games in parks facilities across the district. The three proposals come following a review over the recent years of the facilities and wanting to provide what the customer wants and will use. We plan to ensure these facilities enhance the visitor experience so appreciate your feedback. At present each facility offers different opportunities to play outdoor games and is open at a variety of times through the year.

We are encouraging as many people as possible to let us have their thoughts.

Consultation closes 2 March 2017.

Ripon Swimming Pool consultation

Harrogate Borough Council is committed to providing a swimming facility for the Ripon and surrounding rural areas. We want to know what local residents, users and key organisations would like to see delivered at the new facility. The outcome of this consultation will feed into the specification we give to our contractors. A further round of consultation relating to the design of the facility will be undertaken at a later date.

Consultation closes 8 March 2017
