Parish Council planning
Harrogate Borough Council deals with planning applications for properties within the Parish, and you should consult https://www.harrogate.gov.uk/info/20012/planning_and_development For full information.
Most applications are sent to the Parish Council for comment as part of the consultation process. These applications are normally discussed at the next meeting of the Parish Council, although in some cases a special site meeting may be arranged. All comments or objections are based only on Material Planning Considerations. Brief details of the applications and Parish Council comments are included in the relevant Agendas and Minutes.
Harrogate Borough Council uses National and Local Policies and Plans to inform its decisions. A new Local Plan is currently being developed by Harrogate Borough Council (October 2015)
