Current Craven District Council consultations and involvement opportunities

Draft Local Plan consultation

Further consultation on the Local Plan will be taking place in summer 2017.

The council is carrying out a number of consultations on the local plan. A local plan is a document containing text and maps, setting out how land should be used for such things as housing, employment, recreation and conservation. The aim of the plan is to achieve our economic, environmental and social goals through sustainable development. Policies in a local plan are used to decide planning applications.

The last consultation documents can be downloaded at and reference copies are available in local libraries and at the council's reception desk.
