Information about the Gargrave Neighbourhood Development Plan

The following timeline provides a summary of the neighbourhood plan's progress through statutory stages. The timeline begins with the present and unfolds in reverse chronological order as you scroll down the page.


August - Representations submitted during public consultation (see below) are now being considered. The next stage is for the plan, accompanying documents and representations to be subjected to independent examination to establish whether the plan meets basic conditions set by law. If the plan is found to be satisfactory, with modifications if necessary, Craven District Council will arrange for a local referendum to take place within the area covered by the plan. If more than 50% of those voting vote in favour, Craven District Council will bring the plan into force.

June - Craven District Council ran a 6-week public consultation on the submitted Neighbourhood Plan from 25th June to 6th August 2018. Although the consultation is now closed, copies of the consultation documents are still available, below, for reference purposes. Select a document to download a copy.

May - Gargrave Parish Council formally submitted its Neighbourhood Plan to Craven District Council, under Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012. The draft plan is intended to guide new development proposals in the parish up to 2032 and includes policies on housing, employment, environment, green spaces and infrastructure.


Consultation on the parish council's application to designate a neighbourhood area closed on 20th January 2014 (no comments received) and Gargrave Neighbourhood Plan Area was designated by Craven District Council on 27th January 2014.
