Planning Applications for Asby

The Parish Council’s Role in Planning

Asby Parish Council takes an interest in applications which affect its area, and regularly makes representations to the local planning authority.   As of 1 August 2016 this has been the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority (YDNP).

Whilst the parish council is not normally a statutory consultee in the determination of planning applications, YDNP have a charter which commits them to consult parish councils and take their views into account.  This gives the parish council some considerable weight in the planning process.

New planning applications are discussed at its bi-monthly council meetings and, where timing dictates, special meetings may be held to review specific planning applications.

Planning Surgeries

YDNP  operate regular, free planning surgeries allow members of the public to get verbal planning advice on householder or small-scale development proposals (though for a written response a pre-application inquiry will need to be submitted).

These are held fortnightly in Orton with alternatuve sessions also available in Sedbergh and Bainbridge.  Click here for the current schedule.

Learn more about the Planning System

To assist anyone who needs to interface with the planning system in England, the Government have provided the following resources:

  • Plain English Guide to the Planning System
    This summarises the purpose of the planning system and how it works.  It also explains such concepts as Strategic Planning, Local Plans, and Permitted Development Rights.  (Though note that the rules on permitted development are different in Conservation Areas such as Great Asby.)
  • Planning Practice Guidance
    A searchable A-Z of typical planning matters.  This has been produced for the benefit of planning authorities, developers, and the public alike.

ATG Activities

We will be working with local landowners to identify small areas of land that can be used to plant trees or hedges. Occasional requests will go out to members, seeking volunteers to survey areas of land to assess the age and health of trees and to identify possible planting areas, as well as to take part in planting trees and hedges. These activities will normally be scheduled to last for no more than three hours.

The Tree Group has insurance to cover members carrying out these activities.
