July 2022 Update

July 2022 The Neighbourhood Plan is almost complete. We have now received the updated SEA and HRA reports from Craven District Council. All the documents go to the statutory bodies i.e., Historic England, Environment Agency and English Heritage for comment. Following receipt of comments the Plan will be formally submitted for examination by an independent examiner. A referendum will be organised by Craven District Council for residents to approve the Plan. Once approved it will be adopted.

Update on Canal works

The Canal & River Trust are going to try a temporary fix to let the canal reopen in the next two weeks.  We’ll do this by clearing the bed of the canal and placing supports over the top of the culvert to reduce the weight on them and prevent it collapsing further, and then relining over the top to prevent leakage through from the canal into the culvert.  It is hoped this work will be done by 9th July. 

“The design work on the permanent fix can then continue until approximately September, then we can plan the works in canal closure window this winter if all goes well with the temporary fix.”

The tow path will be closed while the temporary fix is carried out and then again in the winter for several months while the permanant repair is done.
