Current Craven District Council consultations and involvement opportunities


Craven Museum & Gallery and Skipton Tourist Information Centre

Craven District Council is consulting on the options for redeveloping Craven Museum & Gallery and Skipton Tourist Information Centre, both housed within the Town Hall, which is due to reopen in May. The latest stage of public consultation is now underway to find out what people think about this exciting idea and to help shape the way forward.  Craven Museum & Gallery is already a popular visitor destination with 64,000 visitors last year; staff want to find out what people like about the current museum and how they think it could be improved both in layout and in its displays and activities.

The museum will celebrate the history of the Craven district, the many historical places it has to explore and share our stories with future generations. As part of this project - and to find out more about what you feel is important for museums to achieve - please answer our questionnaire. The Craven Museum 2020 survey only takes a few minutes.


Community Safety Consultation Survey

The Craven Community Safety Partnership Plan identifies priorities for the coming year. Craven District remains one of the safest districts within the country, with low levels of crime. It is our aim that through partnership working we will continue to tackle the issues which do affect and matter to local people and sustain this positive performance. We want to hear the views of our local communities. Please let us know your views on Safety and Crime in Craven

Consultations and involvement opportunities from other organisations in Craven


National Rural Crime Network's Rural Crime Survey (Closes 24th June 2015)

The largest ever survey into crime and anti-social Behaviour (ASB) in rural areas has been launched in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to find out how the police can better serve rural communities. Anyone living or working in rural areas is being encouraged to take part in the crime and anti-social Behaviour (ASB) in rural areas survey to help build a picture of what is a widespread but often misunderstood issue. You don't need to have been a victim of crime to have a view on how the police work. You may be concerned about police visibility or response, see incidents that go unreported, or you may have a local officer who is engaged and proactive.


North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC) Local transport plan four (LTP4) (Closes Tuesday, 30 June 2015)

The local transport plan is a set of documents that the government requires all local transport authorities to produce. The documents set out our plans and strategies for maintaining and improving all aspects of the local transport system over a set period of time. The new local transport plan, LTP4, will replace the previous plan which ends in March 2016. The plan will set out NYCC's approach to all aspects of the local transport system for the next 30 years. The results of the LTP4 online survey will help to shape the aims and objectives for local transport for the whole of North Yorkshire. This includes highway maintenance, safety improvements, bus stops, winter gritting and snow removal.


North Yorkshire County Council (NYCC)  Autism strategy for North Yorkshire (Closes Friday 17 July, 2015)

People with autism and their families have expressed their wish for local services that meet their needs. Central government have also identified this need and have produced statutory guidance for local authorities to adopt. One important requirement is that local areas develop an autism strategy.  NYCC's strategy is based on what you have told them so far; but they are keen to receive more feedback.  The strategy will be launched in October 2015. More information on how to comment on the Autism strategy for North Yorkshire is on their website.
