2014 has been a good year in many ways. The economy continues to recover with the jobless total falling by one third locally. The future of Whitby Hospital has been secured and, at long last, improvements to the A64 are in the pipe line. 2015 will see the start of the Scarborough Water Park project, progress on a new college and university campus and hopefully the green light for the Potash Mine. This New Year will also bring the General Election in May!
