I am asking North Yorkshire residents how much they are willing to pay in their council tax bill for North Yorkshire Police and North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service.




The survey began on 13 December and is open until 20 January 2019.




The survey will be carried out in two ways, by telephone to a representative sample of taxpayers and online where any resident can have their say. It is with the promotion of the online survey that I would like your help with.




I’d be extremely grateful if you could help promote the online survey on your website / blog, public notice boards, at your advice surgeries and when you are engaging with your communities. If you use social media, look out for #TellJulia at and please re-tweet and share.



If you would like hard copies of the poster or leaflets please contact my office. The leaflet includes the questionnaire with free post return.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.


Thank you very much for your help.


Kind regards

Selby District Council has made a heart-warming Christmas film to encourage recycling this Christmas.


The festive advert is encouraging residents to give collection crews the gift of lots of recycling this year – remember crews will take extra card and paper (all boxes must be flattened and not stacked inside one another) as well as additional plastic and cans in separate carrier bags.  From mid-January you can also use the green waste service to recycle your Christmas tree.


 The ad has been produced with 7 Video Productions, based at the Church Fenton Studios development. This site is where the Council has been working to support a new creative industries hub, to deliver new jobs and opportunities.


The festive film focuses on a child waiting excitedly for a visit but is it from Father Christmas or someone even more special? Watch the You Tube film here:


Leader of the Council, Cllr Mark Crane commented, “This film is a great way to encourage everyone to think about the extra waste we produce at this time of year.


“Lots of parents contact us to say how much it means to them that the collection crews wave at their children or that their kids love seeing the crews dressed up at this time of year with their Santa hats on. This film was a fantastic opportunity to highlight the great relationship the crews have in our community.


“I think it’s wonderful and I hope everyone loves it as much as I do too.”


Andrew Turner, Amey Waste Collections Account Manager, said: “Our waste operatives have a fantastic relationship with the communities they work in, so to be part of this Christmas film is a real privilege. 


“This film not only highlights the fantastic relationships our crews have with residents of Selby but it’s also an important reminder for us all to think about how we dispose of that extra waste this festive season.”
