Reacting to today's draft rcommendations for new structures of unitary local government in the north-east, north-west and Yorkshire and the Humber regions*, Selby DC leader Mark Crane commented: 'We are disappointed by the prospect of boundary changes in the Selby district. Selby District Council strongly believes the current boundaries offer the people of the Selby district relevant and effective delivery of services. Selby District Council is currently able to react quickly to the needs of the district, because it is able to reflect community identity and community interests.
'The four options put forward, however, would place Selby in either a north Yorkshire unitary authority or with the east riding of Yorkshire. This reflects our submission to the Boundary Committee and we believe that these options will be the most suitable to the Selby district if boundary changes are put in place.
'Selby District Council is considering all of the recommendations, and over the next few weeks we will be consulting with our partners across north Yorkshire and the east riding of Yorkshire.'
