Car Park/Field Consultation: Update

Many thanks to all those of you who took the time and trouble to attend the December meetings and offered help with the distribution of the survey forms. Thank you also to those of you who returned the forms.

The final tally was 40% of parish households responding, plus a number of “out of parish” visitors who use the Institute and local businesses. There was 100% support for Option 2 requesting the Parish Council to approach Craven District Council to consider the transfer of these assets to a proposed  Community Trust.

As a result, the Parish Council has contacted CDC with a formal request for this transfer – and is now awaiting a response.

Many of you expressed an interest in the formation of a Community Trust and I will be in contact with you all once things are clearer.
