NYCC and City of York Police Fire and Crime Commissioner
Please see below the text of a letter we have received from
Zoe Metcalfe, newly-elected Police Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire and the City of York.
Subject: Precept consultation 13 December 2021 - 13 January 2022
Sutton-under-Whitestonecliffe Parish Council
As your new Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner for North Yorkshire and the City of York I have pledged to be a voice for our communities. I will ensure police and fire leaders are supported and challenged to be the best they can, and will stand up for where we live and the brave police officers, firefighters and police and fire staff and volunteers who work so hard to protect us every day.
One of my first duties will be to set the precepts for North Yorkshire Police and North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, something every Commissioner has to do every year.
This year, more than ever, it is really important that I hear from as many people as possible. It is never easy asking for more money, and I know that many individuals and families are facing financial pressures in this difficult climate. But so are our services and I want to make sure that our police and fire services are able to continue to invest in the safety of our communities for years to come.
My survey begins on Monday 13 December and is open until midnight on Thursday 13 January 2022.
The survey can be completed online at www.TellCommissionerZoe.co.uk
I'd be extremely grateful if you could help promote the online survey on your website, download, print out and pin up the poster on your public notice boards, and mention the survey at your public meetings and when you are engaging with your community. If you use social media, please look out for #TellCommissionerZoe and #HaveYourSay and please re-tweet and share.

Parish Council Elections
The normal schedule of parish council elections has been changed by the Westminster government to chime with the UA election pattern. Our next election was to have been in 2023. Now the next election has been brought forward by a year.
Therefore the next Parish Council election will be in May 2022.
The best way to keep our village identity in this era of change is to sustain the tried and tested systems of local democracy. The Parish Council has been here, we believe, since 1894, long beyond a human lifetime. It has seen vast change.
The Parish Council embodies our right to be informed and consulted, to speak and be heard, in the big conversation of government.
Please consider standing as a candidate for one of the seven councillor seats that make up our Parish Council.
