North Yorkshire trio to share

  • Comment

Three North Yorkshire districts are to develop long-term collaboration, with two of them making an immediate start by sharing IT and planning.

Craven DC, Harrogate BC and Selby DC – all Conservative controlled – signed a concordat last year to work together and are developing a business case fo long-term joint working.

Craven and Selby have agreed to share IT, as both are due to move into new premises and have vacancies among key staff in this field. They said the combined IT service would mean lower operational costs.

Their planning departments will work more closely together and share a senior planning officer.

Selby leader Mark Crane (Con) said, “Given the expected cuts to be announced in the spending review we need to be innovative in our approach to how we deliver services. The collaboration concordat with Craven and Harrogate gives us the framework to do this.”

Harrogate already provides Craven’s internal audit service.
