We use the current Harrogate district local plan, alongside national planning guidance set out in the national planning policy framework (NPPF) and local planning guidance, to decide planning applications.

The current plan consists of the local plan 2001 and selective alteration 2004 and its policies map, as well as the core strategy (2009).

The current planning policies list provides a quick reference guide to our local planning policies.

The local plan was adopted in February 2001, with “saved” selective alterations in 2004 and 2007.
