About the Planning Committee

About the Planning Committee

The Planning Committee is comprised of 12 Councillors. The Committee meets every month.  Its role is to consider significant planning applications for development and deal with all development control and associated issues, including tree matters and enforcement connected to the development of that part of the Craven District outside the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Most issues relating to Building Control are delegated to officers to deal with.

The Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority is responsible for planning policy and development control within the Park area, which covers around two-thirds of the land area of Craven.
