Local authorities should engage with local people in preparing their Local Plans, to produce policies that reflect the views and aspirations of communities. Craven District Council have been holding informal engagement sessions to generate some initial feedback about suggested sites from the local community. However, the development of a Local Plan is an ongoing process and Craven District Council must have further stages of consultation before a Local Plan is formed. For more information regarding the process, and to view sites that have been put forward for potential development in Gargrave, please visit:
The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF. 2012) sets out government policies on planning and replaces most of the Planning Policy Statements which were in existence prior to this. The NPPF influences local planning through Statutory Development Plan documents. All local planning policies and decisions on planning applications must take into account what the NPPF says. As part of the NPPF, every local planning authority must create and implement a Local Plan.
The Local Plan provides the basis for determining planning applications and future developments in regional areas. An example of this would be that Craven District Council (CDC) must prepare a Local Plan which provides a certain number of houses per area over a set period of time. The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment site reports (SHLAA) represent areas of land which offer the potential to fulfil the Local Plan housing quota.
It has been brought to the attention of the Parish Council that some consultation bodies were not informed of the Regulation 14 Public Consultation and therefore there will be a further 6 weeks to allow representations to be submitted by these organisations. The extended consultation will run from Monday February 8th until 5pm on Monday March 21st.

Anyone who has submitted comments previously need not resubmit as all previously submitted comments are being given due consideration.

This notice advises you that Gargrave Parish Council has published the Gargrave Draft Neighbourhood Development Plan for consultation
Gargrave Draft Neighbourhood Development Plan has been prepared by a working group of local residents and parish councillors (GNPWG) on behalf of Gargrave Parish Council, and is published for formal consultation until
21st December 2015.
The Plan has been prepared building on an extensive process of informal public consultation including questionnaire surveys, open meetings and drop in events, and the results of this process have helped to identify the key planning issues which the Plan should address. The Plan sets out a vision and objectives and a number of planning policies, which will be used alongside the Craven District Local Plan to guide new development in the designated neighbourhood area of Gargrave until 2030.
The Draft Plan and other supporting documents can be viewed and downloaded from www.gargravepc.org.uk
Hard copies of the Draft Neighbourhood Plan can be viewed in the following locations at normal opening times:
Hard copies of the Representation Forms will be provided on request from the Parish Clerk (see
contact details below) but the Parish Council also welcomes comments by email or in writing.
Please submit all comments on the Draft Neighbourhood Development Plan to:
Gargrave Parish Council, Gargrave Village Hall, West Street Gargrave BD23 3RD
Following the public consultation process on the Draft Neighbourhood Development Plan, the Plan will be
amended and submitted to Craven District Council together with supporting documentation, including a Basic
Conditions Statement and Consultation Statement setting out who has been consulted, how the consultation
has been undertaken and how the representations received have informed the Plan.
Craven District Council will then re-
Examiner. Once any further amendments have been made the Plan will be subjected to a local Referendum,
and, then ‘Made’ by Craven District Council and used to determine planning applications in Gargrave Parish.
