  • 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.

Parish Council Consultation Letter - Changes

During the course of a planning application, as a result of the data protection act, we are required to redact information such as signatures. As you can appreciate, this is a labour intensive task that uses a lot of resource and has a high associated risk. We have been looking at ways across the service we can reduce the risk and ensure this information is never placed into the public domain.

There is no need for consultation responses to be signed so as a result, the area for signature has now been removed from consultation letters. The majority of consultation responses we now receive are electronic, which is greatly appreciated as this results in a speedy response to the case officer and less resource from the team.

It would be greatly appreciated if going forward, consultation responses are provided without a signature, including for applications where the consultation letter may have already been received.

Harrogate Borough Council - Harrogate District Local Plan CRM:0008722

Harrogate Borough Council is preparing a new Local Plan that will set out how the district should grow and develop to 2035. At the end of 2016 the council consulted on a draft Local Plan, including draft site allocations, and sought views on two options for a new settlement, (at Flaxby or Green Hammerton). It was made clear at this time that only one option would be taken forward within the Local Plan.

Since this time a review of the housing need and employment land requirements for the district has been undertaken and this has concluded that an increase in the number of new homes and jobs being planned for is necessary. In light of this additional site allocations have been drafted for inclusion within the Local Plan.

A CONSULTATION ON ADDITIONAL SITES WILL START ON FRIDAY 14 JULY AND CLOSE ON FRIDAY 25 AUGUST 2017. THIS WILL INCLUDE SITES FOR GYPSIES AND TRAVELLERS AND A PREFERRED LOCATION FOR A NEW SETTLEMENT.

All of the consultation documents and other supporting material will be available to view online at: https://consult.harrogate.gov.uk/portal. Copies of the consultation document will be available from Friday 14 July and can be viewed during normal opening hours at all the district's libraries and at the council's Crescent Gardens offices in Harrogate, Ripon Town Hall and Knaresborough House.

The consultation focuses solely on the new sites being added to the plan to ensure we meet local housing need. There will be an opportunity to comment on all other aspects of the new Local Plan during the last public consultation which is due to take place in January 2018.

A number of exhibitions will be taking place providing the opportunity to talk to officers from the Planning Policy team. Exhibitions will be held at:

Ripon Town HallWednesday19 July 2-7pm
Green Hammerton Village HallTuesday25 July 2-7pm
Gracious Street Methodist Hall, KnaresboroughWednesday26 July 2-7pm
Boroughbridge LibraryThursday27 July 2-7pm
Wesley Centre, HarrogateSaturday29 July 10am-2pm

Public Exhibition Event 20th July 2017

I email this afternoon on behalf of Vernon & Co. to inform you of a forthcoming public consultation event at Hampsthwaite Memorial Hall in relation to the proposed residential development on land at Rowden Road, Hampsthwaite.

You may be aware that the site has previously been promoted through the Council’s Strategic Housing Economic Land Availability Assessment and Local Plan processes. It is now the intention of Vernon & Co. to submit an outline planning application for the residential development of up to 150 dwellings. 

At this current time we wish to inform you of the public event which will take the form of a drop-in consultation between the hours of 4pm and 8pm on Thursday 20th July 2017. Representatives of Vernon & Co. and their consultancy team will be available at the event to discuss the development proposals.

In advance of the opening of the exhibition event we wish to invite the Parish Council to a private viewing of the exhibition material and discussion with the development team at 3.30pm. I would be grateful if you could please confirm if you wish to take this opportunity to meet on the 20th July.

I have attached a copy of the information leaflet which will be distributed to residents living in the immediate vicinity of the proposed development site over the coming days. We invite you to publish these details on the Parish Council website and circulate the leaflet and details to interest groups and residents of Hampsthwaite.

The development team are currently drafting information boards. Those boards will be uploaded for viewing on the Johnson Mowat consultation website from the date of the event should residents be unable to attend.
Should you wish to discuss any of the above in the meantime please get in touch. Further details will be provided in due course.
Kind regards,
Becky

Rowden Lane, Hampsthwaite

I am promoter of the site HM4 and HM5 adjacent to Rowden Lane and would welcome an early opportunity to consult with  the village's Parish Council.

We intend to submit an early application and are planning a public consultation event on 20th July to which all members of the Parish Council will be invited. 

In addition to this I wondered if you would like to organise a smaller meeting between keys members of the Parish Council ahead of that?

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards.
