PremierLeague-News.Com - The government wants a big shake-up of councils running the area
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! There are less than two weeks remaining for people in North Yorkshire to have their say on how the county’s local government will look in the future. Earlier this year, Local Government Secretary Robert Jenrick announced that two proposals from councils in the area would be taken forward as part of the Local Government Reorganisation process, the consultation into which closes on April 19. North Yorkshire County Council has submitted a bid for one large authority to cover the county, with more powers passed on to town and parish councils. City of York Council, itself already a unitary, would be left as it is under the proposals. Six of the county’s seven district councils – Scarborough, Harrogate, Ryedale, Craven, Selby and Richmondshire – submitted a proposal dubbed the “East & West plan” that would see the county and York split in half to create two authorities of roughly the same population size under one Mayor.

. The consultation asks a number of questions about each proposal around value for money, geography and impacts on local services. Residents, councils, Local Enterprise Partnerships, public service providers, businesses and voluntary organisations all have the opportunity to have their say on which proposal, if any, would best fit their area. The Local Government Secretary will consider all proposals following the consultation before making a decision about which option, if any, to implement. This would be subject to Parliamentary approval.
