THE FUTURE of LOCAL GOVERNMENT in NORTH YORKSHIRE

NORTH YORKSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL 

Residents of North Yorkshire are invited to give their views on proposed devolution (a single Unitary Authority for North Yorkshire) which would establish 28 Area Committees based on market Towns.

North Yorkshire County Council currently delivers services for Children and young people, Adult social care, Trading Standards, Core Libraries, Public Rights of Way and strategic highway services. 

To set out the choices, a short animation video has been produced which can be accessed at : www.northyorks.gov.uk/StrongerTogether. 

Comments can be submitted to StrongerTogether@northyorks.gov.uk. 

SELBY DISTRICT COUNCIL

The 7 District Councils are also drawing up proposals for an 'East/West' split creating 2 Unitary Authorities - one comprising Ryedale, Scarborough, Selby and York and another comprising Craven, Hambleton, Harrogate and Richmondshire.

CHANGES TO SERVICE 4

Arriva are making some changes to their services in the Selby area and one of these is the ending of the Service 4 on 31st August, which serves Osgodby, Cliffe and Hemingbrough. 

NYCC are proposing that a Thornes Service from Holme on Spalding Moor can include pick ups at North Duffield, Hemingbrough, Cliffe, Osgodby and Barlby Wainhomes to Selby. The 7.50 a.m. service (at Hemingbrough) will run on School days. Two other services to Selby are planned being Mondays and Fridays at 10.00 a.m. (from Hemingbrough). From Selby services are planned on Mondays and Fridays at 10.20 a.m. 1.00 p.m. and 4.10 p.m. No service Saturdays and Sundays.  

Barlby and Osgodby Town Council, Cliffe and Hemingbrough Parish Councils have agreed to sponsor a 3 Month trial to save the Service 4, with 2 buses a day (and return). If enough residents use the bus a further trial period can be considered.
