Letter: Stray - Act is clear on what is allowed

The introduction to the on-line consultation on the future of the Stray contains the following paragraph :

Your Say
The viaduct over the River Nidd at Knaresborough.  100604M2a.

Letter: Give up the fantasy and build closer links

As things stand, to fulfil government quotas, housing in the area has to expand over open, productive countryside, creeping across the land like an ever-expanding fungus.

Your Say
Letter: Kex gill - Big inconvenience to a vital link

Letter: Kex gill - Big inconvenience to a vital link

So road works at Kex Gill are again set to disrupt traffic along the A59 and Councillor Don Mackenzie apologises “for any inconvenience”. That is a wholly misleading apology. He should be apologising “for again causing great inconvenience” to the many users of this vital link.

Your Say
EU and UK flags together

Letter: Brexit - Ashamed of the changes in UK

Before Christmas my wife and I returned from an extended visit to Malawi where much to our amazement conversations both with us and overheard in bars and restaurants seemed to be dominated by Brexit and we heard it described as “a total disaster” – African words not ours.

The Stray. Montpellier.(NADV 1701093AM2)

Letter: The stray - Local body needs to protect it

The Stray is the crowning glory of Harrogate. The many letters about its use show how deep are the feelings it evokes. Common land is increasingly threatened by commercial interests.

The Stray. Montpellier (NADV 1701093AM1)

Letter: Consultation - The council is still not clear

As we near the end of the ‘consultation period’ about the future of Harrogate’s Stray I really do feel it is about time that people knew precisely what the Harrogate Council are proposing. Regrettably I do not feel that this has been made clear.

Your Say 1
The Stray. West Park (NADV 1701093AM4)

Letter: Stray - Just get rid of the ‘dross’ events

What is a week? Well, a minute is 60 consecutive seconds, an hour is 60 consecutive minutes, a day is 24 consecutive hours and, yes, a week is seven consecutive days.But, though the Harrogate Stray Act says that the Stray shall not be inclosed for more than five weeks in the year, the council interpret this as any 35 days.

Your Say

In response to your Behind the Headlines special report ‘Crisis in care as services reach tipping point’ (Advertiser, December 8). My background is in social care and I have worked in both direct care, training and management. I agree strongly with the initial early concerns about the reforms and in particular the worries around recruiting staff.

Your Say
Harrogate train station  (1401205AM1)

Letter: Trains - Please explain what is going on?

When is a Pacer train not a Pacer? When it’s scrapped surely - and weren’t we clearly promised that they would all be gone within three years when Arriva took over from Northern?

Much has recently been written about the proposals in Harrogate Council’s Draft Local Plan to locate new housing and a travellers’ site in the vicinity of Pannal.
