Draft Affordable Housing Supplementary Planning Document: Craven Local Plan

Start date: Tuesday 1st September 2020

End date: Tuesday 13th October 2020

This draft Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), in accordance with the glossary of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) adds further detail to the policies of the development plan, specifically the Craven Local Plan. The need to provide this SPD was agreed at the examination of the Local Plan and paragraph 6.20 of the Local Plan’s supporting text confirms the Council’s commitment to its publication. The delivery of affordable homes for local people is an important Council objective and an SPD which assists applicants in preparing and submitting policy compliant planning applications for affordable housing will contribute to this objective.

The Council is aware that the Government is currently consulting on a fundamental reform of the planning system and some changes to the NPPF that will affect the delivery of affordable homes as well as many other matters. This does not obviate the need for the Council to seek to approve this draft SPD following public consultation.

Draft Conservation Area Appraisals

Start date: Monday 19th October 2020

End date: Monday 14th December 2020

The Craven Conservation Areas Project 2016 was undertaken by the Council, Historic England and Alan Baxter Ltd. The project produced draft appraisals for 16 existing conservation areas and 3 potential new conservation areas in Craven. All 19 draft appraisals were accepted into the evidence base for the Craven Local Plan and the Council committed to undertaking public consultation on the draft appraisals at the earliest opportunity following the Local Plan's adoption. The Council is now pleased to commence that consultation.

The consultation documents can be downloaded below and include an important overarching introduction. Each document is concise and easy to read, but in view of the total number of documents involved, the normal consultation period of 4 weeks has been extended to 8 weeks.

IMPORTANT: Documents produced by the Craven Conservation Areas Project are in electronic format and include interactive maps. Therefore, paper copies are not available. In order to utilise the interactive maps, please download the documents onto your computer, tablet or smartphone and view them in a suitable PDF reader, such as Adobe Acrobat. The interactive maps are unlikely to work properly, if you view the documents in a web browser.
