The government has announced that North Yorkshire will move to a unitary model of local government from April 2023. This means that the existing district councils will be abolished and staff will transfer to the new unitary council.
We have organised an open meeting for all our members who work for Hambleton, Richmondshire and Selby District Councils. This will be an opportunity to find out more about what LGR means for you and to ask us any questions.
It would be great if you could join us, and if you could submit any questions in advance (see below). You can join the meeting using the Teams link below.
Let us know if you can come, and if you have any questions or concerns?
There will be chance to ask questions during the meeting, but we know that not everyone is comfortable asking in front of everyone else. If you have any questions or concerns you let us know in advance using the form below. We will make sure your question is addressed during the meeting.
How to join the meeting
The meeting will take place using Microsoft Teams. To join, simply click on the link below. The meeting will start at 12.30pm and finish at 1.15pm.
We held a similar meeting earlier this year when the consultation started, and feedback from members was that they would prefer a meeting during the daytime.
We know that many of you will be at work, so we have arranged the meeting around lunchtime.
Sadly, there is no right to paid time off work so you may need to attend the meeting during your lunch break or during other unpaid time. In any event, please make sure that your line manager knows you are on a break or attending a meeting.
Local Government Reorgnaistaion (LGR) is on the horizon for councils in York and North Yorkshire. These pages will keep our members updated on what could be the biggest change to local government in North Yorkshire since 1974.
