Budget - Closed 12 December 2014

The Council approved its revenue budget for 2015/16 on 24th February 2015. We undertook a Budget Consultation with residents as part of the budget setting in September to December 2014.  The 2015/2016 detailed annual budget forms the first year of a rolling three year Medium Term Financial Strategy. Taking a longer term view enables us to plan our finances over several years to ensure our resources are aligned to the delivery of the Council's priorities. The Budget Consultation set out some key issues to think about and invited residents to tell us if they think we spend your money in the most effective way, and to tell us how we could spend it better.   The Budget Consultation 15/16 Feedback Report [454kb] includes the results of the consultation and tells you how we are responding.  As well as being used to inform budget setting, the results of the consultation will also be used to inform service planning and improvement. The Council's 2015/16 Revenue budget will be available on the Council's website in the next few months on The Council's Budget

Local Plan - Closed 3 November 2014

We have had an excellent response to the draft local plan with a total of 864 comments from local residents, local businesses, parish councils, statutory bodies, voluntary organisation, local interest groups and the development industry. The feedback has been very constructive and will be considered carefully. The Planning Policy team are currently assessing all the comments submitted and the following picture is emerging:

  • There are interesting suggestions for new or alternative sites that deserve to be thoroughly investigated.
  • Some further or updated evidence needs to be included in the draft Local Plan to justify choices and policies included.

More information and a presentation on the main comments made about the draft local plan can be found on the planning policy page for work on creating an up-to-date, New Local Plan to replace the current local plan.

We asked North Craven residents to complete an online survey on their views about the open spaces (included parks and gardens, allotments, play areas, cemeteries and civic spaces) to help to inform the emerging New Local Plan for Craven.  Following this pilot study and consultation, the Council will appoint a specialist company to carry out a full Craven wide open space assessment.  This will produce an Open Space Strategy and Action Plan for the Council and local stakeholders to use.
