Communication from the new North Yorkshire Council

The new North Yorkshire Council will launch on 1 April.

We will merge with the existing seven district and borough authorities to provide one single authority to cover the whole of England’s largest county.

Nearly 33,000 businesses and 615,000 residents in North Yorkshire are due to be given easier access to services ranging from education and highways to waste collection and disposal, planning and economic development through the new council.

Council leader, Cllr Carl Les, said that the new authority would have the interests of communities at its heart, and would aim to be the most local council nationally despite serving such a vast geographical area.

Cllr Les, who will assume the leadership of North Yorkshire Council from April 1, said: “The launch of the new council presents a defining moment for North Yorkshire and the way we can deliver services to the public.

“The chance to operate as one single authority will allow us to make significant savings and protect some of the most important local services at a critical time when everyone and every organisation is feeling the pressure from increased costs.

“There will be tough financial decisions ahead, but by making this change now, we are in a much stronger position to manage the rising costs and increased demand for services.”
