    The churchyard of St Thomas a'Beckett, and its Chapel-of-Ease at Felliscliffe hold within them a wealth of local heritage via their Memorial Inscriptions and Burial Records. Why so many infant deaths, what was happening in society at the time of burial, was there a war or an illness affecting the population? How many local families are represented there and are there any well known names - or not so well known but with an interesting story attached? Is the design of the Memorial interesting in terms of its art work or the language used?This section of our website aims to list photographs of all Memorials, together with their Inscriptions and Church Records so that such questions may be answered by browsing or searching both now and in the foreseeable future - even long after some inscriptions may have faded beyond readability.

Harrogate District Sites and Polices Development Plan - 2013


HARROGATE DISTRICT LOCAL PLAN: DRAFT LOCAL PLAN CONSULTATION, 11 NOVEMBER - 23 DECEMBER 2016

Harrogate Borough Council is currently preparing a new Local Plan which will set out how the district should grow and develop to 2035. A Draft Local Plan has been prepared and includes:

    policies to guide development
    sites for new homes and jobs
    options for a new settlement for the district
    allocations for Local Green Space
    development limits for settlements

a six week consultation on THE Draft Local Plan WILL START THIS FRIDAY 11 November, and CLOSE ON FRIDAY 23 December 2016.

In addition to the Draft Local Plan you are invited to submit your comments on the following supporting documents:

    Strategic Housing and Economic Land Availability Assessment
    Sustainability Appraisal
    Habitat Regulations Assessment
    Equality Assessment

The council are also consulting on an updated Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) on the provision of open space in connection with new housing development.

Copies of the Draft Local Plan, Open Space SPD and a summary of the Sustainability Appraisal are also available to view during normal opening hours in all of the district's libraries, at the council's Crescent Gardens offices in Harrogate, Ripon Town Hall and Knaresborough House. All of the consultation documents (including the full Sustainability Appriasal), and other supporting documents can be viewed at: http://consult.harrogate.gov.uk/portal

HARROGATE DISTRICT STRATEGIC HOUSING AND ECONOMIC LAND AVAILABLITY ASSESSMENT

As you have previously commented on, or requested to be informed of, information relating to the Harrogate District Local Plan I am writing to make you aware that the Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA) is now available to view on the council’s at http://consult.harrogate.gov.uk/portal/pp/so/shelaa/shelaa

The SHELAA is a technical document that provides information about sites, submitted to the council for consideration as part of the Local Plan, which may have some potential for housing or employment at some stage in the future. It includes maps of settlements where land has been suggested, and provides some brief information about the sites e.g. the proposed use for the site.

The SHELAA is important as it helps to inform the preparation of the new Local Plan but it is not a planning decision making document and it does not determine if a site should be allocated for development or whether planning permission would be granted for development: the allocation of sites for future housing or economic development will be identified through the emerging Harrogate District Local Plan or Neighbourhood Plans. However, it does make realistic assumptions about the availability, suitability and deliverability of land to meet the identified housing and employment need over the plan period.

At this stage the SHELAA is being published for information only; please do not send any comments at this time; you will be able to comment on this document later in the year. We had hoped to consult on the SHELAA this summer, however, as this would mean consulting over the school holiday period we have now decided to hold the consultation alongside the Draft Local Plan to allow as many people as possible to comment.

If you require any further information then please email planningpolicy@harrogate.gov.uk. Alternatively ring 01423 500600 and ask to speak to the Planning Policy team.
