Issued By
North Yorkshire County Council



EXTENDED opening hours at some of its main registration offices have been announced by North Yorkshire County Council.

From  July 1, Scarborough and Northallerton will open on Friday afternoon, Selby will be open on Wednesday afternoon and Harrogate will open at 8.30am. Increased hours were announced for Whitby in November last year.

 Councillor John Dennis, the county council's executive member responsible for the registration service in North Yorkshire said: “Despite all the problems we had in North Yorkshire last year, we still had more weddings in the hotels and stately homes approved for weddings than ever before.

"Like the new office for Whitby which is nearly ready, this is another sign of our wish to make sure we are always listening to the views of our clients."
