2017: Towards publication and submission

Progress of the new local plan in 2017

15th December - our response to your comments

Here are the council's latest Policy Response Papers and Site Response Papers, in which we analyse and respond to comments received during public consultation on the third pre-publication draft local plan (see below). The papers provide details of the issues raised, our responses and resulting changes to the draft plan.


Analysis of responses will enable further improvements to be made before a final version is produced and subjected to formal approval procedures, including an Examination in Public.


19th June to 31st July - consultation on pre-publication draft local plan

The council ran a six-week public consultation on a third (pre-publication) draft of its new local plan, including a drop-in event in Skipton. This followed consultation on previous drafts in 2014 and 2016 and included a new consultation on preferred sites. Whilst you can still view relevant documents (see below), the consultation is now closed.
