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.


Review of Statement of Principles under the Gambling Act 2005 - (Closes 17th June 2015)

We are required to prepare and publish every 3 years a Statement of Principles, which outlines how we undertake our responsibilities under The Gambling Act 2005.  There has been no significant changes to regulations or guidance in the last 3 years and therefore we propose that the Statement of Principles will remain unchanged for the years 2016-2019.  The statement is based on the nationally accepted template produced by the Local Government Regulation. The number of premises in this district which currently require licensing is four.

Draft Statement of Principles [251kb]

Feedback on this Statement of Principles should be sent via e-mail or letter  to The Licensing Officer, Craven District Council, Belle Vue Square, Broughton Rd, SKIPTON, North Yorkshire, BD23 1FJ. Email:  by 17th June 2015.  Please could you  indicate clearly the paragraph your response refers to.


Riverside Park, Ingleton - (Closes 31st May 2015)

Craven District Council and partners (Ingleton Parish Council, Ingleton Trades peoples' Association and Ingleton Rural Community Association) as part of The Ingleton Village Centre Action Plan, are looking at ways to optimise the potential of Riverside Park, and are seeking views on the park and its future.

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.

Craven Cleaner, Safer and Greener Strategy 2015-2021 - Closes 16th June

We are drafting a Craven Cleaner, Safer and Greener Strategy 2015-2021.  The strategy will set out how we deal with Anti - Social Behaviour, Crime and Safety, Dog Fouling, Dogs Roaming, Littering and Fly Tipping, Domestic Smoke and Odour, General Nuisance and Domestic Noise Nuisance.  We need community support to deliver the strategy, and we want to develop a "Craven Cleaner, Safer and Greener Charter" . The charter will be a voluntary agreement which sets out the mutual rights, responsibilities and expectations between residents, the Council and other service providers for creating Cleaner, Safer and Greener neighbourhoods.

We want your views on the directions of the strategy, and want you to let us know if we've missed anything.  Survey on Craven Cleaner, Safer and Greener Strategy
