Hambleton is a local government district found within the ceremonial county of North Yorkshire, in the far north of England. The district is named after the Hambleton Hills, which are part of the North York Moors National Park and are found toward the eastern border of the district.
The district’s administrative centre and most notable settlement is the town of Northallerton but Hambleton does also include some other market towns and smaller settlements including the likes of Bedale, Thirsk, Great Ayton, Stokesley and Easingwold.
The Formation Of The Hambleton District
The local government district of Hambleton, in its current guise, officially came into being on the 1st April 1974 as a direct result of the passage of the 1972 Local Government Act. That piece of parliamentary legislation reorganised local government all over the UK and in many cases created new districts from smaller former administrative entities.
This was indeed the case for Hambleton, which was formed from a merger of the previous urban district of Northallerton, Bedale Rural District, Easingwold Rural District, Northallerton Rural District, part of Thirsk Rural District, Stokesley Rural District and Croft Rural District.
The Demography Of Hambleton
According to the latest available population data, from an estimate taken in the year 2007, the district of Hambleton has a permanent resident population of approximately 86,900. This means that the 506 square mile district has a population density of around 180 per square mile, which is actually a very low figure.
Whilst this low population density does make accidents and injuries less common in the district, the fact that the population is actually increasing does make these occurrences and as a result subsequent Hambleton accident claim proceedings increasingly more likely. It is for this reason, therefore, that we will now turn our attention to the pertinent details of these Hambleton accident claim proceedings.
Hambleton Accident Claim Proceedings
First and foremost, it is crucial to mention when and why Hambleton accident claim proceedings, and in fact personal injury claims in general, are actually possible. This is if and when you have suffered an injury which was definitively the fault of somebody other than yourself and may deserve financial recompense for the pain and hardships you have had to endure.
The next crucial issue to address is that of who you can turn to for assistance if you are indeed entitled to compensation.
