Let’s Talk Scarborough

7 May 2024

North Yorkshire Council and the Scarborough Town Board want to hear your views on how they should use £20 million earmarked by Government for Scarborough’s regeneration over the next ten years as part of its Long-Term Plan for Towns.

They want people living and working in Scarborough to have their say by filling in the survey.

The Let’s Talk Scarborough survey is part of a wider engagement strategy, which seeks to build a vision for the future of the town with input from as many members of the community as possible. In addition to the survey there will be in-person public engagement events, the details of which will be available here.

The Scarborough Town Board has been expanded to include representatives from more sectors.

Government has given the following themes for projects to focus on:

  • Enhancing safety and security
  • Reviving our high streets, regenerating Scarborough and enhancing our heritage
  • Improving transportation and connectivity


The results of this consultation will inform the creation of the Long-Term Plan for Scarborough, building on previous regeneration schemes which will must be submitted to Government by 1 August.

There are several ways you can take part in Let’s Talk Scarborough:

You can fill in an online survey here – the survey is on Commonplace, which is a safe and easy-to-use online tool used to engage with communities, by over 250 organisations including neighbouring councils in Leeds and West Yorkshire.

For Let’s Talk Scarborough you will be asked to drop a pin on a map of Scarborough and answer questions about that place in relation to the themes above. You can comment on more than one location.

If you would prefer, you can pick up a paper copy from Scarborough, Newby and Scalby or Eastfield Library or the Scarborough Customer First Centre and return it in the pre-paid envelope provided.
