PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT, LAVERTON ROAD, KIRKBY MALZEARD

If you wish to view the information currently available on this application on the HBC Planning Dept website click here: http://uniformonline.harrogate.gov.uk/online-applications/applicationDetails.do?activeTab=summary&keyVal=OWY57YHYMMW00

There has been an amendment recently to the proposals with the number of houses reduced from 'up to 47 houses' to 'up to 37 houses' so if you have any comments you wish to make on this you can currently send in additional responses to the Planning Department.


THE FORMER HENRY JENKINS PUBLIC HOUSE

The planning application made by the new owner of the East section, for conversion to one dwelling (see HBC Planning website for details - case ref 18/01087/FUL) has now been refused.

The HJCC are still undertaking an Opinion Survey to determine support for their proposals within the wider community and to ascertain the willingness of residents to pledge financial assistance in purchasing and renovating the building but it is unlikely that the final results will be known for some time as only approximately half the responses have so far been obtained. Anyone not completing and returning the form is seen as being neutral.

Further information and updates are available on the Henry Jenkins website:  ://www.thehenryjenkins.com/

COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE

A Committee has been formed to co-ordinate the response to any civil emergencies which may arise. They are working in conjunction with the Emergency Planning Team at Harrogate Council and are now putting together a register of local residents who can be called upon to assist if necessary. For full details please go to the Community Emergency Page of this website.
