  • BARKER Family History

    Descendants of John and Grace BarkerbyShaun L Wilson – February 2017 Barker families have resided in Hampsthwaite since the early seventeenth century and were extensive in the area during the nineteenth century. From the 1881 England Census for Hampsthwaite taken on 3rd April that year, Barker was the most popular name totalling 57 out of 457 people enumerated – 12.5% of those recorded living in Hampsthwaite at the time of that census. From the registers of Hampsthwaite parish, Barkers were in existence as early as 1610. The earliest Barker mentioned is John Barker, son of Peter who was baptised on 17th March that year.Where Hampsthwaite is mentioned in this article it refers to both village and parish. We will never know exactly where the early Barker’s dwelling houses were as they are not recorded in either the parish registers or on the early census returns, but it is assumed that they lived in the village or within the parish. It was not until the England Census of 1911 that full address details were given together with the total number of children born alive to the present marriage of the head of the family.
  • Tom Wright reflects upon the Barker family in Hampsthwaite

    As far as I can ascertain there were no Barkers in Hampsthwaite prior to the 18th century. The earliest reference I could find was to the marriage of John Barker, a tailor, to Ann Messenger (daughter of William Messenger) in the parish church sometime near the beginning of the 1700s. I don’t know from whence he originated.They had several children, as did all the Barkers, but I have only recorded my own direct ancestors. They were his son James Barker (1744) & Hannah Dousland; William Barker (1781) & Catherine Swale; John Barker (1810) & Mary Nutter; George Barker (1845) & Sarah ???  who themselves produced Rowland Barker and siblings. He married Eliza Jackson (from an even older family in Birstwith) and they were my maternal Grandparents.(See also and )

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.
