Knaresborough Development Plan

Knaresborough Neighbourhood Plan Logo

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
