Budget consultation underway

Civic Centre

A public consultation is now underway to gather views on Hambleton District Council’s initial budget proposals for the next financial year.

Launched today (Dec 7) the council is encouraging residents and business owners to have their say on its proposed 2022/ 23 draft budget and services.

The £12m net revenue budget proposed includes additional grants to the community of £400,000, improved waste collection and new services at the Crematorium and Treadmills developments. The £12.07m capital programme aims to complete approved projects including leisure centre schemes, two sports villages, market town investment, the new Northallerton cinema and the Treadmills business centres.

Cllr Mark Robson, Leader of the Council, said: “This will be the last year we have to set a budget for Hambleton as the new council for North Yorkshire comes into play in April 2023. During this consultation we want people to tell us what they think of our proposals for this all important last year for the district council.”

The council will set its budget in February.
