Ravenstonedale Kirkby Stephen Cumbria

Ravenstonedale Parish Council. Boundary Review

Rumbled on for years and sat on ministerial desks until, eventually, Ravenstonedale was annexed to the Yorkshire Dales National Park on 1st August 2016.

Although still situated in Eden District of Cumbria, all planning and some other services have now been transferred to the YDNPA, based at Bainbridge, North Yorkshire.

Day to day administration such as Licensing, Electoral Registration, Refuse Collection etc. remain with EDC at Penrith.

At time of writing, January 2017, there are still adjustments being made, for example - the opening of a YDNPA office at Orton, local appointments with planning officers and the creation of a "Western Dales Parish Forum".

For further details a visit to the YDNPA website is suggested.
