New arrangements apply to elections after this date.
Dates: 17 Mar 2022
We review the electoral and boundary arrangements of councils to make sure they are fair. Our reviews include at least two rounds of public consultation before we make recommendations for change.
The creation of North Yorkshire Council Unitary Authority
In March 2022, Parliament authorised the creation of a new unitary authority called North Yorkshire Council. The council replaced the authorities of North Yorkshire County Council, Craven District Council, Selby District Council, Scarborough Borough Council, Ryedale District Council, Harrogate Borough Council, Hambleton District Council and Richmondshire District Council.
The County of North Yorkshire (Electoral Changes) Order 2005 was made on 1 February 2005.
Our recommendations for new electoral and boundary arrangements were published on 12 October 2004.
Most recent and previous reviews are held on the UK Government Web Archive.
