Ensure that any major changes initiated by "Make it York" or other Quangos operating in the City are subject to consultation with residents. The traditional children's rides provided during the St Nicholas Fair should be retained in Parliament Street

This petition had 6 supporters


"Make it York", a company wholly owned by the Council but run by an independent Board of Directors, has announced that the  children's rides traditionally provided during the St. Nicholas Fair period leading up to Christmas, will not be allocated a pitch in the Parliament Street area this year.

This ban includes the iconic Carousel ride.

The space may be used to accommodate a licensed bar.

No consultation with residents or most Councillors has taken place, no effective public scrutiny process for "Make it York" decisions has been introduced nor have any performance measures - for the public events that it may organise - been published.

York Council taxpayers need to be involved in the decision making processes for organisations that they help to fund including "Make it York", the "York Museums Trust" & the York Libraries and Archives Mutual Company.
