Keep it in Harrogate! 

Conservative-run North Yorkshire’s Council have announced that they have pulled the unpopular £11 million Station Gateway project.

So far the Conservatives: 

  • Dreamt up this failed scheme.
  • Spent a staggering £2 million of taxpayers money on consultants.
  • Ignored residents, businesses, and the Lib Dem Councillors who raised serious concerns about the project.
  • Allowed the scheme to progress for years only for their own lawyers to tell them it had to be scrapped!

We want to make sure that the remaining money is kept in Harrogate. That is why Tom and the team have launched a petition calling on North Yorkshire’s Conservative bosses to make sure the money that was to be used on Station Gateway is still spent in Harrogate. We don’t want our money spent somewhere else in North Yorkshire.

Keep the money in Harrogate

We are calling on North Yorkshire Council to make sure that the millions of pounds originally tied up in the unpopular Gateway Project are ring fenced for Harrogate, not spent elsewhere in North Yorkshire. We deserve proper investment and an MP who will be vocal in fighting for it. Any future scheme must have the buy-in of local residents, local business and local elected councillors. It was clear that this wasn’t the case with this failed scheme and this cannot be allowed to happen again.
