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.

For those visiting Skipton on Wednesday April 1 between 11am and 3pm, look out for Museum staff and volunteers who will be dressed in thistorical costume on the steps outside the Town Hall to chat to people about what they think.  Staff will also be in Settle on 15 April, and Leeds on 10 April.

There will be a number of upcoming opportunities for the public to get involved, details of the online questionnaire and other consultation dates and sites will be announced shortly.
