Council Leader and Chief Executive to address Chamber meeting

Pictuered are Richard Cooper and Wallace Sampson OBE

With Harrogate Borough Council to vanish in May 2023, the future of local and regional government will be examined – and explained – at Harrogate District Chamber of Commerce’s  first meeting of 2022.

Being held at Rudding House on Monday, January 10, the two expert speakers who will guide us through the next 15-months are Harrogate Borough Council Leader, Councillor Richard Cooper and Harrogate Borough Council Chief Executive, Wallace Sampson OBE.

Harrogate District Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive David Simister said: “In the biggest shake up of local democracy in almost 50 years, a new unitary authority will replace both North Yorkshire County Council and Harrogate Borough Council next year.

“This will have an impact on all those who live and work in the Harrogate District, and in order explain what will happen between now and May 2023, the Leader and Chief Executive of Harrogate Borough Council will talk us through the next 15 months and beyond.”

Those wishing to attend the meeting are asked to register their interest on the Chamber website,
