Survey launched to gather views on dog theft in North Yorkshire and City of York

Julia Mulligan, North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, is inviting dog owners to complete a new national survey to better understand dog theft.

The research comes after a spate of high-profile incidents nationally leading experts to believe criminals are exploiting the huge hike in prices and demand for puppies during the coronavirus restrictions. 

Home Secretary Priti Patel is now reviewing pet theft nationally and considering additional options for enforcement, including harsher penalties for offenders. 

The results of the survey, which is being co-ordinated by the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners, will help find out how widespread the fear of dog theft is, and whether there is support for tougher enforcement. 

Julia Mulligan, North Yorkshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner, said: 

“I know that dog theft is becoming more of a concern for many people after a series of high-profile incidents across the country so it’s important owners across North Yorkshire and York have their say in this survey. 

“It is still not common, but its impacts can be devastating both for individuals and families whose dogs are part of the family and for farmers and rural businesses where dogs have play a crucial role in everything they do.” 

The 60-second survey can be completed at http://bit.ly/DogTheftSurveyNY and will be open until 17:00 on Friday 12 March. 

Advice on keeping dogs safe is available on the North Yorkshire Police website: Dog thefts - North Yorkshire Police | North Yorkshire Police

Public urged to have their say in Government consultation on the future of local government

Residents, businesses and organisations are being encouraged to have their say in a Government consultation on the future of local government in North Yorkshire and York.

Last summer, the Government made it clear to local councils in North Yorkshire and York that they wished to see local government reorganised to form one-tier, unitary authorities.

The Government will shortly announce it will launch a consultation on proposals that have been put forward.

The six district and borough councils of Craven, Harrogate, Richmondshire, Ryedale, Scarborough and Selby have joined together to propose a balanced, East & West model of local government.

The model would see Craven, Harrogate, Richmondshire and Hambleton join together to form a unitary council in the West, with a population of 363,000, and Selby, City of York, Ryedale and Scarborough join together to form a unitary council in the East, with a population of 465,000.

North Yorkshire County Council has submitted a different proposal, which would form one council across the whole of North Yorkshire, with a population of 618,000, leaving York as a separate, small unitary authority with just 211,000 residents.

Whilst a formal decision has yet to be announced, the Government has indicated that it is likely to consult on both proposals.

Councillor Mark Crane, Leader of Selby District Council, speaking on behalf of the Council Leaders, said: “We encourage everyone across North Yorkshire and York to make sure they are informed about these proposals, and have their say.

“We believe our East & West model is the best option for residents, businesses and communities. It will provide two balanced unitary authorities, large enough to make savings and operate strategically, but small enough to understand the needs of our people, places and communities.

“Our East & West model will help drive recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic and build a better economic future for the whole area.

“Over the last year more than ever, district and borough councils have proven the value of local knowledge. Across our six authorities, we have paid out more than 20,000 Covid-19 business grants, totalling over £200 million – we have been able to do this fairly and at speed, due to our understanding of our local economies.

“When our communities have been hit by other crises such as flooding, our local intelligence has enabled us to act fast to protect lives and properties.

“We know many of our residents and businesses don’t like the idea of the ‘mega-council’ that North Yorkshire County Council is proposing. They are worried about losing those local connections with their councils. That’s why we have drawn up the East & West model.

“The Government has assured us that responses to this consultation from any interested persons, including residents, town and parish councillors and local businesses are welcome – so please, make sure you have your say when the consultation launches.”

For more information about the East & West bid, go to www.get-change-right.com

The district and borough council leaders are: Cllr Richard Foster (Craven), Cllr Richard Cooper (Harrogate), Cllr Angie Dale (Richmondshire), Cllr Keane Duncan (Ryedale), Cllr Steve Siddons (Scarborough) and Cllr Mark Crane (Selby).

Inspiring Healthy Lifestyles continues to provide leisure services to the Selby district

Selby District Council and their leisure provider partner, Inspiring healthy lifestyles (IHL), have reached the principles of an agreement to continue their longstanding arrangement to manage leisure facilities and provide key wellbeing services across the district.
Nationally, organisations like IHL have been under extreme financial pressure due to the extended period that Leisure Centres and other services have been closed due to lockdown. This has resulted in an almost total loss of income - which is particularly acute at this time of year, given January and February are traditionally a very busy and important period.
The agreement in Selby is part of a wider agreement which also sees IHL continuing to provide similar services for Cannock Chase District Council, Staffordshire. All three parties have worked closely to collaborate and find a way through the current difficulties the pandemic has presented.
Both councils are committed to focusing on those who do not exercise regularly or who have simply lost the habit of regular physical activity during the national lockdowns.
Recent research by University College London shows that 40% of people are doing less exercise in third Lockdown than in first Lockdown.
The new plan, currently being finalised, will prioritise supporting people who have become inactive during the pandemic and helping them get their healthy routines back on track.
Councillor Mark Crane, Leader of Selby District Council, said. “As a Council our priority is to support residents remain active and healthy, especially during these difficult times. We are currently working with Inspiring Healthy Lifestyles on a new plan to provide leisure services safely to the Selby District.
“People who exercise regularly have a lower risk of many long-term health condition such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke and some cancers. More recently we’ve seen the importance of keeping fit and healthy, especially when fighting the virus.
“Although restrictions and lockdowns have meant that people have been unable to attend the Selby or Tadcaster Leisure Centres. I am confident that once restrictions change and the centres reopen, we will see people exercising safely again.”
Pete Burt, Managing Director of Inspiring healthy lifestyles, said: “It will take a long time to evaluate the impact Covid-19 has had on the nation’s health but we know that helping people suffering from the effects of long-Covid and encouraging people to get back into the habit of regularly exercising, following months of restrictions and lockdowns is a key priority for Selby District Council.
“We are committed to supporting our partners locally and recognise the importance of improving public health across the districts. Currently finalising the details of plans with Council Officers, we look forward to providing a wide range of Covid-safe services and activities”.

General Comments

Although temperatures will be slightly milder today, it will become much colder over the weekend with a strong easterly wind flow developing: during Saturday in the north, reaching the south Saturday night, with wintry showers in eastern and northern counties. This will likely lead to icy conditions on roads and risk of travel disruption. There is an increasing risk of significant snowfall in the far southeast / East Anglia as well Saturday night into Sunday. Very cold temperatures will spread to all parts of the country by the end of Sunday and into Monday morning - the coldest period of the winter so far. Indications are that all parts of England are going into a notable cold spell of weather as we head into the coming week with sharp overnight frosts, and temperatures near freezing by day, together with cold winds.

Cold Weather Alert Planning Advice


Forecast Issued on Friday, 05 February 2021 at 09:02

Forecast for Friday 05 February 2021 to Tuesday 09 February 2021

General Situation: Low pressure over Ireland on Friday will move away southwards, allowing easterly or northeasterly winds to develop over the whole of England by the end of Saturday. This means that initially there will be slightly milder air over much of England, but this will soon be replaced by cold air from Scandinavia. By the end of the weekend the whole country will be in cold air, continuing into the early part of next week. Snow is expected to develop, mainly in eastern areas, through the weekend. Snow showers in eastern areas will continue into next week. Cold weather alerts for this period are expected.

 

Forecast for Wednesday 10 February 2021 to Friday 19 February 2021

General Situation: The cold easterly winds will continue into the early part of this period with further snow showers, again mainly in eastern areas. During Thursday and Friday confidence becomes low, as milder air will try to move into southern and southwestern areas. At this stage it is difficult to say how far northeast the milder air might reach, but further significant snow on the boundary between the cold and milder air is possible. The milder air may reach most parts through the weekend of 13-14 February, but northeastern areas may stay in the cold air. Cold weather alerts are likely, at least in the early part of this period.

 


Forecast for Saturday 20 February 2021 to Saturday 06 March 2021

General Situation: After a slightly milder and wetter period mid-month, a return to colder and drier conditions is most likely for this period. There is a risk of significant snow on the boundary of the mild and cold air, most likely in eastern areas. There is a higher than usual likelihood of cold weather alerts for the lead time during this period.
