Planning Services

Town and Country Planning is about the management of competing uses for land and buildings, and the making of places that are valued and have identity.

Please note that due to an unprecedented workload, the duty planning officer will be available on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings only, from May 30th, 2017. This is a temporary measure and will be reviewed in the future.

Due to the implementation of a new planning application system, we are currently on a system freeze to allow the transfer of existing data.  We are therefore  unable to fully process new planning applications.  Please continue to submit your applications as we will endeavour to check for validation and will contact you accordingly.  The new system goes live from the 01 June 2017 which is when we can progress the applications further.

From 5pm on 18 May 2017 there was a system freeze to allow the data to transfer. Any comments received after then will be acknowledged and passed on to the case officer. These comments will not show online until after 01 June 2017. If you are wanting to view any consultation responses or interested parties comments received between the freeze period please visit the Council Offices at 1 Belle Vue Square, Broughton Road, Skipton, BD23 1FJ.

Please note that from the 01 June 2017, the system used to access planning applications will change. You will not need to do anything as the website will be automatically updated.
