Proposed Green Hammerton Settlement

New Settlement in Green Hammerton or Flaxby – circa 3000 new homes – a new settlement that would be greater in size than Boroughbridge. Read more.

You may we remember that we mentioned in the Kirk Hammerton News about Harrogate Borough Councils(HBC) Proposed Local Development Plan. This document is now out for consultation and you will find that it impacts massively on our community. For your information the Parish Council will be commenting on the Draft Local Development plan and we will publish this for your viewing but it is also extremely important that individuals also comment as well.

A leaflet explaining how to log your comments will be delivered to all addresses this weekend. Any question then please contact the parish council.

You can view and respond to the consultation documents on this website http://consult.harrogate.gov.uk/portal/.

You can also write to HBC with your comments if you are struggling with the website. The address for HBC is :  Harrogate Borough Council, Planning, Policy Planning and Development, PO Box 787, Harrogate.  HG1 9RW. Alternatively, you can drop your letters with Les/Janice at Llandlaff and the Parish council will see that they get to HBC. Please drop them off no later than midday 22nd December. You can also view the consultation documents in all the district’s libraries and at the council’s main Crescent Gardens offices in Harrogate and at Ripon Town Hall and Knaresborough House.

The deadline for sending in comments is 4:30pm on Friday 23rd December 2016 which is not long away now and please allow more time if you are deciding to send something in the post.
