8:35am 19th June 2017

Craven District Council has launched an informal consultation on its new Pre-Publication Draft Craven Local Plan.

The plan includes a spatial strategy, draft policies and preferred housing, employment and mixed use site allocations.

The consultation begins today and will run until Monday July 31.

Paul Ellis, Director of Services at Craven District Council, said: "This consultation is a crucial piece of work and one of the final steps in developing a Local Plan that is right for Craven.

"We have taken on board previous comments from residents, businesses and organisations who provided us with valuable information.

"We have already carried out a huge amount of consultation to ensure a robust plan.

"This is the last chance for people to influence the content of the plan before it is formally published in September 2017 and we would like to hear their views.

"We are interested to hear what people like about it and any proposed changes - all suggestions are welcome."

The new draft Local Plan will influence housing growth in Craven.

The plan covers the period of 2012-2032 with an identified need for 4,280 new dwellings, which equates to 214 dwellings per year.

The Council says the consultation is the last opportunity for people to influence the content of the plan before it is formally published in September 2017 and submitted to the Secretary of State for Examination in December 2017.
