The Parish of Darley and Menwith is situated in Nidderdale, North Yorkshire, midway between Harrogate and Pateley Bridge. It has around 1200 inhabitants living in some 450 houses in what is known as a ribbon village. Many of the houses line Darley Main Street which stretches for over 1.5km, and others are on lanes leading off this street, or in the surrounding area. It is a thriving village with several community groups catering for all needs.
Application 18/05181/OUTMAJ for 60 houses off Meadow Lane and Application 19/01989/FULMAJ for 29 houses off Sheepcote Lane were decided at the HBC Planning Committee on 17 September. Both applications were refused.
Local Plan - Darley Site DR14 deleted! Harrogate Borough Council have now published their major modifications to the Draft Local Plan, which were requested by the Inspector in order to make the plan sound. The allocated site for 88 houses has been deleted. The modifications are now out for public consultation, so you may wish to support this change.
Public consultation closes on 20th September so act NOW if you wish to comment. See Parish Council / Planning for more details
