End date: Monday 6thAugust 2018

Gargrave Parish Council has formally submitted its Neighbourhood Plan to Craven District Council, under Regulation 15 of the Neighbourhood Planning (General) Regulations 2012, and Craven District Council is now carrying out the required 6-week public consultation. The 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. Copies of the submitted plan and accompanying documents can be downloaded below and paper copies are available to view at Gargrave and Skipton public libraries.

Representations on the submitted plan must be received no later than the end date, above. Representations may be sent by email to or by post to the Planning Policy Team, Craven District Council, 1 Belle Vue Square, Skipton, BD23 1FJ. People wishing to be informed of the outcome of the neighbourhood plan examination (see below) should make this clear in their representations, in accordance with Regulation 16 (iv) of the 2012 Regulations.

After public consultation, the plan, accompanying documents and representations will 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.

Start Date: Monday 18th June 2018

End date: Monday 30th July 2018

In accordance with the Localism Act 2011, Clapham cum Newby Parish Council has submitted a formal proposal to designate a neighbourhood area, which is an initial step in the preparation of a neighbourhood plan.

Only people who live, work or carry on business in the proposed neighbourhood area (the parish of Clapham cum Newby) are eligible to comment.

Comments on the application must be received no later than the end date, above, and may be submitted by email or post to or the Planning Policy Team, Craven District Council, 1 Belle Vue Square, Skipton, BD23 1FJ.
