Talkabout citizens' panel

We're currently updating Talkabout, our citizens' panel, which is one of the ways you can give us your feedback and views and influence what happens in York.


2020/21 Budget Consultation

We want to build on the feedback you provided through our council plan consultation earlier this year by asking for your feedback on our 2020/21 Budget priorities.

City of York Council undertakes a public Budget consultation each year to seek residents' opinions on Budget priorities for the city.

We want to hear from you to make sure every penny we spend goes on what you need and value.

We're asking questions on:

  • Council tax
  • Social care precept
  • Council Plan outcomes
  • Investment

Take our 2020/21 Budget Consultation survey to tell us what you think we should be spending more or less on.

Consultation closes at midnight on 31 December 2019


Bishopthorpe Primary School admission arrangements 2021/22

We’re seeking to reduce our Pupil Admission Number for Bishopthorpe Primary School from 60 to 50.

Available data suggests that there is not the demand for 60 places to be admitted in Reception:

  • over the last 3 years we’ve admitted, on average, 50 children per year
  • the local area has seen a falling birth rate which means that for numbers to increase, children would be travelling from out of area
  • there are no plans for future housing development in our surrounding area that would attract young families

Given that we’re bound by legislation to maximum class sizes of 30, reducing the Pupil Admission Number will allow us to make strategic decisions about structures and resources that will allow the school to run in a financially sustainable manner and best meet the needs of our children.

See supporting documents relating to the Bishopthorpe Primary School Admission Arrangements:

Responses should be submitted by email to admissionsconsultation@york.gov.uk.

Consultation closes at midnight on 17 January 2020.
