Local Plan

The Council is currently updating its Local Plan. Development decisions are based on the saved policies of the adopted Local Plan 1999-2006 and the emerging policies of the Local Plan 2012-2028, subject to the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). 

The Richmondshire Local Plan Core Strategy was submitted for Examination by the Planning Inspectorate on the 28th February. For the latest news please visit the Examination Page.
