Welcome to the Darley Village website

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 approved by Inspector - with Darley Site DR14 deleted!   The Inspector has now published his report and has passed the HBC Local Plan as sound - as long as it includes the Major Modifications suggested - including the deletion of the site allocation in Darley that would have seen 88 houses built at the bottom of Sheepcote Lane. The Plan is expected to be adopted by HBC in March 2020 and it will then be the blueprint for all development in the area for the next 20 years. Planning applications for sites not within the Plan are unlikely to be permitted.
