Detail of outcome
Following consultation and consideration of the statutory conditions, the Secretary of State has decided that several parts of the Harrogate Stray Act 1985 do prevent or restrict Harrogate Borough Council from exercising the general power of competence in hosting the Tour de Yorkshire. It is therefore appropriate for the Secretary of State to use his powers under section 5(1) of the Localism Act 2011 to lay before Parliament a draft Order to disapply or amend parts of the 1985 Act, for the period of 23 April to 3 May 2017, for the sole purpose of hosting the Tour de Yorkshire.
The explanatory document accompanies the draft Order and includes a summary of the consultation responses, the government response to the consultation and the consideration of the statutory conditions.
This consultation seeks views on the proposal to enable Harrogate borough council to use the general power of competence to host a stage of the Tour de Yorkshire 2017.
This involves making secondary legislation that temporarily disapplies and amends provisions of the Harrogate Stray Act 1985 from Sunday 23 April 2017 to Wednesday 3 May 2017 for particular areas of the Stray for the sole purpose of hosting the Tour de Yorkshire.
