Local people can now have a direct and active say in helping to shape development in the area in which they live through “neighbourhood planning.”

In order to produce a neighbourhood development plan, an area must first be formally designated a “neighbourhood area.”

In May 2013, we formally designated the Knaresborough neighbourhood area, following an application by Knaresborough Town Council. The area can be seen on the map.

A consultation document has since been produced, setting out the proposed policy and land use intentions the town council is considering including in its final draft plan to be published for formal consultation this year.

Once adopted, the neighbourhood plan forms part of the development plan for the district.

For more information on the progress of the neighbourhood development plan, visit Knaresborough Town Council's website.

Knaresborough neighbourhood area documents

Between 14 December 2012 and 25 January 2013 the Borough Council carried out a consultation on a proposed Neighbourhood Area for Knaresborough. Documents relating to the consultation can be viewed below. The consultation related solely to the designation of a Neighbourhood Area and did not involve the allocation of sites.
