Yorkshire Council Hoping for Revenue Bounce Back

Yorkshire Council Hoping for Revenue Bounce Back

Published by Matthew Pells at 6:01am 1st June 2020.

As lockdown regulations are slightly eased today and with prospect of shops reopening on June 15th, it's not just local businesses that are hoping to be able to start generating revenue again.

The area's local authorities have also suffered a fall in income during lockdown as well as an increase in costs.

Richard Burton is leader of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.


Richard says they've seen an increase in their costs during lockdown along with a fall in income. He hopes that income will start to return as more local businesses are able to reopen.

I can’t believe that as the leader of the East Riding of Yorkshire council that you have had free parking for all in Bridlington over than last two busy weekends, and yesterday only one disabled toilet was open on the south side, with the ladies and gents toilets closed.There were
big queues as you would imagine with all the visitors that we had in Bridlington. The money that we could of earned on the car parking would of paid for the toilets to be open. Just watch this space as Richard burton will be putting the council tax up next year, as much as he is allowed which currently stands at 3.9 %.
