Craven District Council, the Planning Authority, is in the process of adopting a revised Development Framework. A draft has been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate and is currently under examination. The present timetable indicates that the adoption will be in February/March 2019.

There will be no objections to the allocation of the site for residential development within the draft plan. The existing Cottages and original School House are Listed. The trees on either side of the existing driveway to the two school houses, which have a splendid easterly vista across farm land, are subject to tree preservation orders.

As mentioned, the Highways Agency has indicated agreement to the widening of the lane, alongside the southerly boundary, but the Agency has also advised, that there would be no objection to widening the existing pedestrian access to the playground area, adjacent to the vehicular access to the original School House, to facilitate the residential development of the site.

The existing affective floor area of the commercial element of the buildings is 6,250 sq.ft (606 sq.m). The affective floor area of the two dwellings is 852 sq.ft (75 sq.m) and 1,076 sq.ft (100 sq.m).
