New council launches 1 April 2023

On 1 April the new North Yorkshire Council comes into effect, replacing North Yorkshire County Council and seven district and borough councils. The move is welcomed as a fantastic opportunity to establish the very best for the people, businesses and places served in the region. The new North Yorkshire Council will bring together the services currently provided by all eight councils in the county. In the long term, it will help to unlock greater powers and funding from central government, because this change paves the way for greater devolution from Westminster.

Seamless transition

Whereas Scarborough Borough Council has until now been one of the five lead authorities that manage YORhub, this will now transfer automatically to North Yorkshire Council. We are delighted that Chris Bourne (pictured), YORhub board member for the north region, will continue in this role representing North Yorkshire Council. Chris said:

“Many of the councils within North Yorkshire were already users of the frameworks, and the formation of the new North Yorkshire Council presents a great opportunity to embed the use of the YORhub frameworks within in the country’s largest geographic local authority. This should give framework contractors and consultants access to a wider range of projects across the region, and assist the Council in the delivery of its new strategic objectives.”

We look forward to working with the new council and continuing to deliver our framework services to clients in the region.
