Harrogate Draft Local Plan ready for consultation



A public consultation on the draft Local Plan for Harrogate Council, including plans to build new homes and options for new settlements in the area, is to go ahead on 11 November 2016.

The new plan is being prepared after recommendation from a planning inspector to withdraw the previous draft plan in 2014.

Harrogate Borough Council will be holding a six week consultation on its Draft Local Plan between 11 November and 23 December 2016. The Plan will guide new development throughout the district and is scheduled for adoption by Autumn 2016. The draft local plan includes:

  • policies to guide development;
  • sites for new homes and jobs;
  • options for a new settlement for the district;
  • allocations for Local Green Space, and;
  • development limits for settlements

The draft Plan will be presented across Harrogate area at public exhibitions in Harrogate, Ripon, Masham, Pateley Bridge, Knaresborough, Boroughbridge and Green Hammerton.

These exhibitions provide the opportunity to view consultation materials and discuss ideas with council planning officers. The Plan will be also available on Harrogate Council’s website.

The consultation documents will also be available to view in all of the district’s libraries and at the council’s main Crescent Gardens offices in Harrogate and at Ripon Town Hall and Knaresborough House.
