Local Green Space Consultation

Help identify important areas of green space in Craven which need protecting.

Craven District Council is currently inviting applications to be submitted suggesting land to be designated as Local Green Space Designations in the emerging Local Plan for Craven over a 6 week period from Wed 21st Oct to Wed 2nd December. Town and Parish Council’s throughout the plan area are being asked to coordinate applications from interested individuals and/or groups. Applications can also be submitted by groups and individuals directly to the Planning Policy Team at Craven District Council.

This is a new area of local planning, offering communities the opportunity to identify areas of green space which are of value to them because of the wildlife they are home to, their beauty, their cultural or heritage significance, the tranquillity they provide or their recreational value. If designated in the Local Plan Local Green Space Designations would be protected from inappropriate development.

Applications will be assessed against criteria set out in the Council’s methodology document for assessing sites, which can be viewed here, together with an online application form.

Following the assessment of applications submitted to the Council suitable sites will be proposed as Local Green Space designations in the next draft of the Craven Local Plan or carried forward as land designations in emerging Neighbourhood Plans. Public consultation on subsequent drafts of these land use plans will provide an opportunity for interested parties to comment.

If you have any queries relating to the designation of Local Green Space, please contact the Council’s Planning Policy Team. Email localplan@cravendc.gov.uk or telephone 01756 706472.

Neighbourhood Planning Grant Approved

The work of establishing Bradley Parish Councils Neighbourhood plan has received a significant support in being successful in obtaining a grant of £7000. This will enable the Bradley Parish Councils Neighbourhood Plan working Party to obtain Professional advice in the structuring of the plan.

The changing of the official requirements has had the effect of slowing down the development of the plan. However the working party are hopeful that an initial draft of the plan will be available later in the year.

Planning Focus 1st Quarter Update

Those who live and work in Bradley and Gargrave are being given the chance to have their say about future development in their communities. The Bradley Neighbourhood Area was designated on the 9th December 2013 by the Council’s Spatial Planning Sub Committee and members of the same committee designated the Gargrave Neighbourhood Area on the 27th January 2014. Both areas were designated following a period of consultation and follow the parish boundary.
