New guidance on planning designs in Ryedale

First published in News

COUNCILLORS in Ryedale are to be asked to agree to take certain design conditions on board when debating planning applications in North Yorkshire.

Planning officers at Ryedale District Council have drawn up a guidance document setting out the parameters for new farm buildings and infrastructure in the Howardian Hills, which will be discussed at a meeting of the authority next week.

The council will be asked to agree to take the guide into account before making decisions. It has been compiled following consultation with groups including the National Farmers Union, the Country Land and Business Association, parish councils, Natural England and North Yorkshire County Council.

A report by the council’s head of planning and housing, Gary Housden, said materials and styles used for farm buildings had become more industrial and the guidance was intended to protect the appearance of the Howardian Hills.

Just re design the voting key pads and if they are too thick to vote remove them from the planing committee . Why the current planning committee hasnt been dissolved is beyond any rational thinking persons comprehension after the kikbymoorside farce. I certainly hope non of the committee claim allowances of any type for that days lack of effort .
Better still this bunch of numpties is done away with once and for all !
Bring on a unitary authority and consign this over rated town council to the history books !!!

The planning department rarely seem to run on time so why do we think this is a good use of resources?

I don't think we can expect our small farmers to build in stone any more when they compete with foreign cheap goods. Green cladding looks fine, but hopefully this doc says that.

The greater problem is older buildings that fall into ruin or disrepair. Same with shops in towns that don't paint the upstairs windows etc. I wish we could do more about that.
