On 10 September, between, 1pm and 2pm, we are hosting a webinar to give businesses, especially SMEs, an opportunity to get an overview of what local government reorganisation and devolution in York and North Yorkshire would mean for them.
The event will set out our proposal for a single council for North Yorkshire as local government in York and North Yorkshire is reorganised as a prerequisite to securing a devolution deal.
The webinar will cover three main areas:
- an overview of the York and North Yorkshire devolution deal and what it means for businesses
- our proposal for a single North Yorkshire council
- how this single council would benefit SMEs and deliver at scale
There will be an opportunity to ask questions of our Chief Executive, Richard Flinton, and the Assistant Director Growth, Planning and Trading Standards, Matt O’Neill.
