North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) is the county council that governs the non-metropolitan county of North Yorkshire in England.


The council was formed in 1972 when the old council (North Riding County Council) was abolished.[1] The council occupies County Hall at Northallerton, which has been the headquarters of both councils since 1906.[2] As a County Council, it is a "top-tier" system that oversees the district councils but has the responsibility for social care, eduaction and roads.[3]


The districts that come under NYCC are;

  1. Selby
  2. Borough of Harrogate
  3. Craven
  4. Richmondshire
  5. Hambleton
  6. Ryedale
  7. Borough of Scarborough
County Hall, Northallerton.
