Craven land blueprint draft nearly done

First published in

Completion of Craven’s planning blueprint by the end of the year has been listed as a priority by the district council.

It has just approved a four-year Council Plan, beginning in April.

Among its priorities is the finalisation and adoption of the Local Plan, which lays out development and protection sites for the next ten years across the district, including South Craven.

The development plan, which has so far taken two years, is nearing its pre-publication draft, which will be subject to further consultation before final adoption.

Meanwhile, the Council Plan, approved by the policy committee, was a slimmed-down and more accessible document, councillors were told.

Deputy leader, Coun Richard Foster, said the plan is more concise but contained everything the council will concentrate on in the next four years.
