"“The world is a different place from two years ago where people were making projections using consultants around the art of the possible. The reality against more people having problems looking after kids, more people presenting wanting adult social care, more of the housing challenges such as mould, the world doesn’t stand still."
"“If our headquarters was in Harrogate or Scarborough then there might be more of a concern that we would be focused on that as the council view of the world. Being in a fairly modest market town mitigates against that.”"
"“We are hoping it is a bit like the Millenium Bug where everybody thought the world was going to end and planes would drop out of the sky when it turned out that it was all fine.”"
"Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart."
