Selby District Council: draft new Council Plan

We’re developing a new long-term Council Plan.  We want to hear from people in our area about what we’re proposing.

The plan covers the period up to 2030 and sets out four themes for the Council’s work.  We want to continue to support the district to be a great place.

  • A great place to live – by improving the supply of homes in the district, improving the quality of council-owned homes and supporting improvements to town centres in Selby, Tadcaster and Sherburn.
  • A great place to enjoy – by playing a leading role to reduce carbon emissions, continuing to support safe neighbourhoods and improving sustainable transport.
  • A great place to grow – by supporting business investment, creating more well-paid jobs and raising skills levels.
  • The Council delivering great value – through making more services available online, delivering good quality services and being financially stable for the future.

It’s really important that we test our proposals with a range of people and organisations we work alongside.  Click here to read the plan in more detail and take part in a quick survey.

Give your views on county council services

Hello, as part of our annual budget consultation and the development of our council plan we’re inviting people to have their say on how we should prioritise our key ambitions.

The council plan sets out our priorities and actions for the next four years. It explains how we intend to deliver services that meet the needs of people in North Yorkshire.

We want people to share their views on which areas they think we should focus our resources against a backdrop of ongoing austerity.

People can help shape the development of the council plan by taking part in the Your Services, Your Say consultation online at by Monday 18th November.

Use of Tasers in North Yorkshire – Public survey

I would like as many people as possible to tell me their views on whether they think police officers on North Yorkshire’s streets should routinely carry Tasers.

The survey is open now at and runs until Sunday 29 September.

The decision on the deployment of Taser is ultimately down to the Chief Constable but, ahead of that being made, I want to know whether people feel greater investment in the devices is the right thing to do, and if communities would feel safer.

Using the links below, I’d be extremely grateful if you could promote the survey when you are engaging with your communities and if you use social media, look out for #TaserSurvey

If people do not have access to the internet, please ask them to call my office on 01423 569 562 and my team will record their feedback.

Kind regards

North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner
