    In a couple of weeks as part of a larger review that could start to an overall split within the two local authorities, two neighbouring district councils located in North Yorkshire that was established shared services for three years ago will repatriate a number of the said services. It will repatriate a number of services in the next couple of weeks that includes business support and customer services taking in a decision by the cabinets of the two district councils, it was according to Hambleton District Council.

    Only approved to the shared services partnership in 2009 in a project that tackled up to two years to set in place, the two authorities are located either side of the A1 nearby Darlington. As a way for local authorities to lower down the costs hence maintaining service levels, shared services between local authorities have been firmly promoted by the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government Eric Pickles.

    According to the local press reports, the split follows the constrained gardening leave of Peter Simpson, the joint chief executive of Richmondshire and Hambleton district councils who was accompanied from Hambleton District Council offices in Northallerton in February. Since October 1996, Simpson had been the chief executive of Hambleton District Council. Simpson was exactly employed by Hambleton and it had been its verdict to dismiss him, however the reason for his removal are unknown.

    But, with the two local authorities, Simpson had won acknowledgment nationwide for his shared services motivation. Leader of Hambleton District Council, Councillor Neville Huxtable said that there has been no big differ within the two authorities and they are clearly going to look at new ways of supporting services with the advantage of both sets of residents. There had been major changes in the senior management of Hambleton District Council and with a change of strategic technique, Huxtable claimed.

    He added that shared services have been rewarded and it will bring huge savings for both councils when they were venturing cuts. However it is now time to seek for what is best for their residents, they have a new management team moving Hambleton forward and they are now starting a new phase of working together. Handling excellent services for their taxpayer is for paramount significance, he added. They want to achieve more and utilize some of the savings they have acquired to share better services.
