Plans to Abolish Selby and Ryedale Councils Discussed This Week
11:31am 17th February 2014
Plans are being put forward to abolish Selby and Ryedale councils.
All seven district councils would go and North Yorkshire council would take over their work to save money.
The proposals put forward by North Yorkshire's UKIP councillors David Simister and Sam Cross, will be discussed on Wednesday.
The motion states:
That North Yorkshire County Council initiates talks with the District and Borough Councils of Harrogate, Scarborough, Selby, Ryedale, Craven, Hambleton and Richmond, to create a Unitary Authority of North Yorkshire; to open dialogue with Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, Eric Pickles, and the District Councils to facilitate a new authority.
In these austere times, this is the only way we can make true savings for the electorate in the future and maintain frontline services.
