About the NDP

The Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) is an important document for Knaresborough’s future. If formally adopted, the NDP will become a legal document which will be consulted for all planning applications in Knaresborough until 2035. The Plan was compiled through consultations with Knaresborough residents between December 2013 and September 2016.

Following the public consultation, the plan will be submitted to an independent planning inspector and, after that the NDP will be subject to a local referendum.  If more than 50% of the votes are cast in favour, the NDP will become a statutory document and will be Knaresborough's chapter in Harrogate District's local plan

The NDP public consultation is now closed.

The following links will take you to the current version of the NDP draft master document plus a document giving a summary of the of current draft policies.

We are now working on consolidating all the responses into a report. This will take us a number of weeks. We will provide an update report when we have completed this task.

Our thanks to all who have help with the consultation process and those who have provided a response.
