Public meetings

A Public meeting will be held at Long Preston Village Hall on Wednesday March20th at 7-00pm.
This is to tell people what actions can be done to try and make Hellifield Flashes an area of Local Green Space, This is NOT a meeting to discuss the Planning Application  for the Flashes , its to tell people what Craven Council are trying to do to protect that area. All are welcome.


There is to be a Public Meeting on the plans for the holiday complex held by  the Planning Committee, this  is a  special meeting to be held at Gargrave Village Hall on March 25th at 2-45pm.

Councillor Chris Moorby will be speaking at this meeting and if you have any comments you wish to raise it my be better to get in touch with him , as he can speak for a much longer period of time than others can.

This is probably the most controversial issue that has come before the planning committee in a great number of years and as you may be aware this is causing great concerns for the people of both Long Preston and Hellifield.

If you keep an eye on the planning portal of the CDC web site then the papers appertaining to the plans will appear any day now.

Even though this planning application is due to be decided on this date and the decision is to refuse the development, then no doubt the developer will go to appeal but if this land in the meantime is designated Local Green Space it will make development very difficult in the future.
