Last day to have your say


Today marks the last day to have your say as part of the devolution consultation. Please make sure you have added your voice to the consultation and take the survey today if you haven’t yet had the chance. GO DIRECT TO THE SURVEY.

Alongside the consultation for devolution, across North Yorkshire the Let’s Talk consultation is still live. Let’s Talk seeks to gather the views of north Yorkshire residents to inform the new council for North Yorkshire.

From 1 April 2023, North Yorkshire Council will replace the county council and seven district and borough councils in North Yorkshire to deliver all the public services the eight councils currently provide. Having one new council will save money by joining up services to end duplication, helping to support services so they are stronger and fit for the future, as well as fund local decision-making.

They’re holding the biggest countywide conversation that North Yorkshire has ever seen – Let’s Talk – and there’s just over a week left for you to have your say. If you’re a resident in North Yorkshire, find out how you can take part below.

Let’s Talk Local

The new council will be the geographically largest council in England, but it’s being built with local at the heart of everything it will do. Share your views on what makes a good place to live, what you like about your local area, and what you think of proposed community networks.

Visit https://letstalkny.commonplace.is to have your say before 23 December.

Let’s Talk Money

The new council will deliver many services including adult social care, housing, waste collection, transport, planning, community safety and children’s services, with an overall spend of about £1.4 billion. Share your views on what matters to you before the new council budget is agreed, what you think about council tax and your ideas for savings.

North Yorkshire Council will be holding more important consultations in the new year. When you take part in one of the above Let’s Talk surveys, you have the option to subscribe to further news and updates from Let’s Talk so you’ll be notified when these consultations go live.
