Share your views with North Yorkshire Council

It’s been eight weeks since we launched Let’s Talk Local, the first stage in the biggest conversation North Yorkshire has ever seen, to find out your priorities for your local area and listen to your views on proposed Community Networks.

We’ve held over 100 events across the county from dale to coast, meeting members of local groups and attending partner meetings, as well as hosting popup events at libraries and community hubs. Our team of council staff and volunteers have really enjoyed speaking to so many residents. There are many more events planned between now and December, and we would love to see you to discuss your local area. You can find the details of all events here.

If you can’t make it to an event, we’d still love to hear what you have to say - complete our Let's Talk Local survey.

Let’s Talk Money

The new North Yorkshire council will deliver services including waste collection, transport, planning, community safety, leisure and many more. It will provide around 27,000 hours of personal care every week to over 4,300 people, supporting them to continue living in their own homes, as well as providing care to more than 3,200 people in residential or nursing placements. The council will also be responsible for the welfare and education of almost 118,000 children and young people, managing and maintaining more than 8,300 council houses, and processing around 60,000 housing benefit changes every year.

We’re asking you which services are most important to you before the new council's budget is agreed, as part of Let’s Talk Money. We also want to know what you think about council tax and hear your ideas for savings. Have you had your say yet? Share your views here.
