As a matter of routine the Parish Council is informed of any planning applications originating from the parish for their comments and observations, if any.

The Parish Council does not have the power to approve or reject any plans – they merely act as a body, with close local knowledge, to advise the relevant Harrogate Borough Council Planning Committee.

The Parish Council has replied to the consultation by Harrogate Borough Council reflecting the comments and observations made by the public about the potential development of three sites in Killinghall in the latest round of Local Development Plan (LDP) proposals.
