Pickering appears to be in a different group to Malton, yet the residents of Pickering look to Malton, as the larger town; for many things. I went through the local about re-organisation of 1974 & services were not improved.

Good accessible services i.e. school, GP, dentist, library, church, theartre, post office. Good frequent reliable cheap public transport. Affordable shops locally .
Good mixture of housing and age groups. Reasonable parking. Limit to tourism and homes, holiday cottages bijou/boutique shops
New housing of indifferent quality has not proven affordable and is not supported by infrastructure i.e. extra doctors, school places, public transport. Need more opportunities if young people are no to move away for the area. Purging of 2nd holiday homes cottages pricing people out also affects type of shops especially in Helmsley
Politics are very London centric
Rural areas are forgotten and rural poverty is on the increase
Restriction on ability to socialise .
Restriction on travel even locally to places of interest/pleasure.
Go to bed very early to avoid using heating
