All representations whave been published on www.bce2018.org.uk and are available to view and comment on.

The Commission would like to encourage you and your council to take time to see what others have said about our initial proposals, and add your views to those. Following the secondary consultation, the Commission will be considering all representations received from both consultations, and will consider whether any revisions are needed. If they decide to revise the proposals, they will consult on the revised boundaries. The Boundary Commission currently expect any such consultation to happen towards the end of 2017, or in early 2018.

Council praised in independent review http://www.ryedale.gov.uk/pages/council-information/news/1982-corporate-peer-challenge-report.html http://www.ryedale.gov.uk/pages/council-information/news/1982-corporate-peer-challenge-report.html Ryedale District Council has been praised in a report from the Local Government Association (LGA), which looked at how well the Council works to support its local area. LGA news

A ‘peer review’ took place at the end of October, which looked in detail at the Council’s long-term ambitions, its work to support business and housing growth and the way it delivers services for the community.  The review involved staff from across the organisation, councillors and a number of representatives from other organisations and key partners who work alongside the Council.

The findings of the review have now been published and the report can be found below.

The report described the Council as, ‘a small but ambitious council with committed staff who are focused on delivering the best possible service to meet local needs, in partnership with others where possible in order to improve capacity.  Staff are proud to work for the council, and have an excellent understanding of the local context.  There is a commitment to seek housing and economic growth and an understanding that this needs to be done sensitively, and in partnership with others.'

The review identified the success of the Council’s planning service, describing it as an example for others to follow.  In particular the way in which the service supports developers and communities throughout the planning process - from pre-application advice through to decisions.

The review also highlighted how the Council has worked effectively with others across Yorkshire, to ensure that the issues, concerns and opportunities for Ryedale are considered at the highest levels. 

The review praised a new way of working the Council has been piloting for services in Helmsley, which focuses on council staff and councillors working more closely together to deliver services in ways that are tailored to meet the needs of individual areas.  This new community-based approach is due to be rolled out across the rest of the district from April 2017.

Find out more in the full report available to download below, together with the information we submitted as part of the review.

Brown bin collections are changing http://www.ryedale.gov.uk/pages/council-information/news/1981-brown-bin-collections-are-changing.html http://www.ryedale.gov.uk/pages/council-information/news/1981-brown-bin-collections-are-changing.html bin with licence 280 wideFrom 1 March 2017, garden waste collections are changing as part of Ryedale District Council’s efforts to improve services and make the most of every taxpayers’ pound.

These changes will enable the Council to continue to run an efficient and sustainable service, which helps to minimise costs for everyone, whilst maintaining the overall standard of the service.

Not everyone is affected. Letters are being sent directly to everyone who subscribes to the service. The changes mean that some people will need to leave out their brown bin on a different day or week to their recycling collection. For some residents, this could mean that their garden waste bin is emptied on the same week as their refuse bin.

Subscribers to the service are asked to look out for their letter to ensure they don't miss out on any collections. Information is also available on our Find your bin collection day webpage, including an easy-to-use postcode search plus handy downloadable calendars to help you remember when to put your brown bin out for collection.

Other household waste collections are not affected by changes to the garden waste service.

These changes are being introduced as part of the Council's wider efficiency programme to improve services and save £1.4 million by 2020.

Beckie Bennett, Frontline Services Lead for the Council explained,

The changes to the brown bin collections are necessary to ensure the garden waste collection rounds are sustainable and operate as efficiently as possible.

We absolutely recognise that for some residents this will mean their garden waste is collected on a different day or week to their other recycling. Residents are encouraged to look on line to see how the changes affect them - with everyone's help, we expect the transition to the new collection days to run smoothly.

 You can subscribe to the garden waste collection service by visiting our Garden waste subscription webpage.

Become a Tour de Yorkshire tour maker http://www.ryedale.gov.uk/pages/council-information/news/1977-become-a-tour-de-yorkshire-tour-maker.html http://www.ryedale.gov.uk/pages/council-information/news/1977-become-a-tour-de-yorkshire-tour-maker.html tourmakerWelcome to Yorkshire are on the lookout for passionate and reliable volunteers to become Tour Makers at this year’s Tour de Yorkshire.

Tour Makers are the welcoming face of Yorkshire for the millions of spectators who travel to the county to witness the world’s best cyclists in action between 28-30 April 2017 and are deployed right along the race route.

As well as playing an important role in the race, being a Tour Maker gives people the chance to be close to the action and ensure the event passes off as smoothly and safely as possible.

Welcome to Yorkshire are inviting people to register their interest at the Tour de Yorkshire website  before Friday 24 February 2017.

Details will then be provided on the five training sessions which are being held across the county. These sessions give Tour Makers all the information they need about the event, tutoring on their specific roles and an introduction to crowd management. Official Tour Maker uniforms will also be provided at all sessions.

Welcome to Yorkshire Chief Executive Sir Gary Verity said:

Tour Makers play an absolutely vital role in making the Tour de Yorkshire run as smoothly as it does and we’re grateful to every single one of them for the tremendous work they do. Their attitude and enthusiasm is second to none and we look forward to seeing many familiar faces taking part again in 2017.

As our race goes from strength-to-strength, we are always looking for new Tour Makers to join the team and this year is no exception. It’s quick and easy to register your interest and the training days provide an ideal opportunity to learn some new skills and find out everything you need to know.
