These documents set out guidance rather than policy. Their aim is to provide more detailed interpretation of some of the more general planning policies to improve consistency in decision making and provide clarity regarding what is acceptable. The Authority has adopted a number of Supplementary Planning Documents which are available to download:

Design Guide 2002

The Design Guide sets out design principles for the majority of development proposals.

Farm Buildings Design Guide 2007

The Farm Buildings Design Guide sets out design principles for new agricultural buildings.

Guide to Energy Production 2011

The Guide to Energy Production in the Yorkshire Dales National Park is for developers and householders. It was written to ensure that appropriate renewable energy developments can be supported within the Yorkshire Dales National Park and to encourage sustainability in building development. The Guide has been adopted as a supplementary planning document in support of policies in the Yorkshire Dales Local Plan 2006.

Traditional Farm Buildings Toolkit 2017

The Authority has produced a Traditional Farm Buildings Toolkit to help make decisions about managing these structures, including putting them to new uses.
