Each local authority is charged with producing a Local Plan, which will indicate how the authority expects to develop over the next 20 years (to 2035). A previous plan was completed in 2014, but when taken to Inspection by a Government Planning Inspector, as the last stage of its development it was not accepted on the basis that it did not make provision for enough housing. This Plan was then withdrawn by HBC and a new one is now being created.
The Plan will include policies to guide development; sites for new homes and jobs; options for a new settlement in the district; allocations for Local Green Space and development limits for all settlements.
It is expected that it will be ready for inspection again in 2018, but before that there will be opportunities for local residents to respond to draft versions during consultations.
The first draft will be available for consultation from 11 November 2016 to 23 December 2016 via http://consult.harrogate.gov.uk/portal. Check out this page and register now.
It can also be viewed at a pop-up event at Harrogate Interational Centre on 25 October 9- 5 and at a series of public exhibitions, including 17 November 2-7 at Pateley Bridge Methodist Church. For details of the public exhibitions and pop-up event, click here.
