Let’s Talk Local, Money 2022, Devolution, Climate and Transport

Thank you to everyone who has taken part in Let’s Talk North Yorkshire across Local, Money 2022, Devolution, Climate and Transport, helping to determine priorities for the new North Yorkshire Council.

Let’s Talk Local results

In autumn 2022, we launched Let’s Talk North Yorkshire, our biggest ever countywide conversation to understand how residents feel about their local area and their priorities, as well as the impact the cost-of-living crisis is having on lives.  

We received nearly 3,900 responses to Let’s Talk Local and nearly 2,700 responses to Let’s Talk Money from people of all ages, who live and work across all areas of North Yorkshire. 

This information is being used to inform our new council’s decisions, policies and services going forward.  

We are the geographically largest council in England, with a mix of rural, urban and coastal communities, all of which have common challenges but also competing and differing needs. Therefore, a strong community voice is essential. Let’s Talk North Yorkshire is one way we are using to empower that voice and is a clear commitment to listening to you.  

The  Let's Talk Local report (pdf / 812 KB) summarises some of the key results.

Let's Talk Climate results

Let’s Talk Climate was launched in February 2023 as a result of you highlighting climate change as a top five priority of Let’s Talk Local. We wanted to understand your thoughts on the topic in order feed your views and opinions into our draft climate change strategy.

We received over 1,500 responses from people of all ages, who live and work across all areas of North Yorkshire.
