See the menu to the left for our policy statements on important Dales issues.
We develop these using the expertise of our Policy & Planning Committee, composed of experienced Trustees and other volunteers. We regularly review and update our policies and use them to help shape our comments on significant planning applications in and close to the Dales, and our contributions to major regional or national consultations such as Local Plans and government legislation. We are open to new volunteers joining our team to bring different expertise and viewpoints.
Comments submitted on planning policies
See Below - Exchange of letters with YDNPA regarding the relaxation of policy for the conversion of barns.
Archive - Comments submitted on planning applications in the past - these will be moved to a separate archive page when a volunteer is able to undertake this work.
We have cancelled all forthcoming events due to coronavirus except for online events.

"it's more beautiful than you realise; the people are open and friendly and have time for you; your phone might not work which is a positive as you'll have more time - slow down and enjoy the silence".
