Ryedale lies between York and the Heritage Coastline of North Yorkshire. The North York Moors form the northern border of the District and the Yorkshire Wolds the southern limit. Ryedale is a diverse and beautiful area of spectacular scenery, bustling market towns, dale and hill farms and picturesque villages.

Ryedale takes its name from the River Rye which, together with the River Derwent, forms much of the geographical character of the District. Both rivers rise in the North York Moors and join near Malton and Norton, eventually draining into the Humber.

The District covers an area of 575 square miles (150,659 hectares) and is one of the seven Districts that make up North Yorkshire.

Working together to grow the Ryedale visitor economy

Ryedale District Council is investing in the growth and development of new and established tourism, leisure and hospitality businesses to create new employment and career opportunities.

Tourism contributes at least £318 million to the Ryedale economy each year supporting 7,550 jobs, 31% of the population. The tourism industry therefore plays a vital role in supporting livelihoods and facilitating economic development and inward investment, which are essential to making the area an attractive place in which to live, work and play - as well as visit.

The visitor economy is not only important in Ryedale; it is also now recognised as a key mechanism for economic development and regeneration across the UK.  In view of this, we work closely with Welcome to Yorkshire and neighbouring local authorities to ensure the "product" is marketed nationally and internationally and visitors enjoy their experience in Ryedale.

The Homelessness Reduction Act (HRA) came into effect on 3 April 2018 and changed the way we deal with any eligible person who is at risk of homelessness.

Three main aims of the Homelessness Reduction Act are Prevent, Intervene and Recover

  • Prevent more people from becoming homeless in the first place by identifying people at risk and intervening earlier with evidenced solutions
  • Intervene rapidly if a homelessness crisis occurs, so it is brief and non-recurrent
  • Recover - Help more people recover from and exit homelessness by getting them back on their feet

If you are worried about becoming homeless then get in touch as soon as possible so we can help prevent you becoming homeless. If you’re at risk of homelessness within the next 56 days then you can use our online self-referral form to contact the Customer Services Team, or browse the information pages below.
