The council's third (pre-publication) draft local plan is out for public consultation from Mon 19th June until the end of Monday 31st July 2017. This follows consultation on an initial draft in autumn 2014 and a second draft in spring 2016. The council has improved the 2016 version in response to previous comments and in light of new evidence from recent planning studies. The current consultation will enable further improvements to be made before a final version is produced and subjected to formal approval procedures, including an Examination in Public.
Consultation documents and a comments form can be downloaded from www.cravendc.gov.uk/newlocalplan. Reference copies of the consultation documents and paper copies of the comments form are also available at the council's reception desk and at local libraries. Comments forms can be submitted by email or by post during the consultation period.
