Development control fulfils the Council's statutory responsibility for determining planning applications in respect of minerals and waste development outside the two National Parks and the County Council's own development.
North Yorkshire County Council, as the minerals and waste planning authority for the parts of the County outside the Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors National Parks is responsible for:
- Preparing statutory land use plans within the new planning system (the Minerals and Waste Development Framework);
- Managing the county development control function, dealing with all planning applications for minerals (e.g. quarries oil and gas sites) and waste (e.g. landfill and recycling) developments and the County Council's own development (e.g. schools, libraries, and highways); and
- Monitoring, compliance and enforcement of planning matters associated with minerals and waste sites and the County Council's own development proposals.
Planning - who has responsibility and where do I apply?
In North Yorkshire, if your planning development falls within a National Park boundary, you will need to visit their website for more information and to apply for planning permission. See www.northyorksmoors.org.uk or www.yorkshiredales.org.uk. Otherwise, the following applies.
