Let's Talk North Yorkshire

We want to know what really matters to you about your local area. Find out how to get involved in Let's Talk North Yorkshire. 

On 1 April 2023, the new North Yorkshire Council will replace the eight councils currently delivering public services across the county. The new council will be the largest geographically in the country, but it’s being built with local at the heart of everything it will do.

Between September and January we will be holding North Yorkshire’s biggest ever countywide conversation, called Let’s Talk, to find out what issues really matter to you. 

Having one new council will save money by streamlining services and prevent duplication, which can then be used to support services so they are stronger and fit for the future, as well as fund local decision-making. 

Let's Talk Local 
Let’s Talk Local is the first topic for discussion, with teams from all eight councils travelling across the county to get your views on how the new council can best support what is needed where you live. We will also be asking you what you think of our initial ideas around what areas the new community networks will cover. 

Over four months we aim to have over a thousand conversations in person, talking to you where you visit, socialise and meet up with others. We will also be encouraging thousands of others to take part online. Later in the autumn this will be followed by a conversation about money and how the new council’s budget will be spent. 

Let’s Talk Local launches on 19 September, so please take part and tell us what you think. We'll share more details about how to take part shortly.
