FREE PARKING AT WHITE SHOPS TO BE EXTENDED

Richmondshire District Council has confirmed that free parking at its Hildyard Row car park at White Shops, Catterick Garrison, will be extended until the road improvements are completed.

The council has been advised that the road junction improvements will not be completed until November.

Colin Dales, Corporate Director, explained: “We introduced free parking at our Hildyard Row car park in response to concerns of the local community and are pleased to confirm that free parking will continue until the road works are completed.”

REDUCTION IN COUNCILLORS APPROVED

Proposed changes to the number of councillors serving Richmondshire District Council have been sanctioned – as part of an ongoing drive to improve efficiency within the authority.

Members of Full Council on Tuesday (April 25) gave their approval to plans to reduce the member count by ten – to 24 – from 2019.  

They were told the authority is now ‘oversized’ and could easily operate and function with a 29% reduction in members – but still provide the right representation for the district’s residents.
