Local Government Review – Draft Structural Changes Order

17/11/2021 - Local Government Review – Draft Structural Changes Order

Following the Leader’s decision on 21 September 2021 with regard to the consultation response on the preferred contents of the Structural Change Order, the Department of Levelling Up, Housing and Communities have written to the eight Councils in North Yorkshire on 3 November 2021 with a copy of a draft SCO for comments.

A copy of the draft Order has been shared confidentially with Members and the Leader has determined to respond to the latest consultation with the comments attached to this Decision Record.

The Leader considered representations submitted by some of the Councillors and the approved responding to the consultation to thank the Department for the contents of the Order and to make some suggestions with regard to the names of some of the Wards. It will be a matter for the Secretary of State to determine the actual contents of the SCO.
