Six things you need to know about our proposal

A single new North Yorkshire Council will:

  • be a strong voice in the North, speaking out nationally for rural and coastal communities
  • bring together the best services for residents and businesses, make them even better and save money by reducing duplication
  • keep the county and nationally acclaimed services together at a critical time rather than breaking them in two
  • unite North Yorkshire to operate at scale and sustainably, driving recovery from the pandemic, rather than creating two competing councils
  • create a revolution in localism so communities have the funding and power to take action on what matters to them most in their area
  • protect and build on the strong identity and global brand of North Yorkshire and what makes our county so great
