Planning advice surgeries

Our free planning surgeries allow residents of the National Park to get verbal planning advice on householder or small-scale development proposals. For a written response a pre-application inquiry will need to be submitted.

Southern Area surgery

Craven, Lancaster and all the South Lakeland parishes except Garsdale, Dent and Sedbergh.

Surgeries are currently taking place over the phone, via Teams or face to face appointments at Yoredale, Bainbridge, DL8 3EL; in half hour slots from 10.00am to 12.00pm fortnightly on Thursdays. Please email planning@yorkshiredales.org.uk to book a slot, giving the address of the property, brief details of your enquiry and a telephone number.

If you are unable to attend your planning appointment please let us know beforehand, to cancel or rearrange. Our surgeries are popular so we may be able to reallocate your slot.
