Parish profiles were created jointly with parish councils and looked at the social, economic, environmental and transportation characteristics of individual parishes. Profiles were created for all parishes with over 1000 residents, which makes a total of 14. Finalised profiles, which have been agreed by parish councils, are available to download from the following list: Bentham, Bradley, Carleton, Cononley, Cowling, Embsay, Gargrave, Giggleswick, Glusburn, Hellifield, Ingleton, Settle, Skipton, Sutton.
How can parish profiles be used?
Parish profiles can help the planning policy team to identify important characteristics of a parish and may also provide a useful source of information for neighbourhood plans or other community-led plans like village design statements or parish plans.
How can parish profiles be updated?
Parish profiles can be updated, as necessary, with new information - for example new census data or new issues arising within the parish.
If readers of the profiles have any comments to make on content, or suggestions for how they can be improved or updated, please contact the relevant parish or town council.
