This is confirmation that they really were intending to push this through without us knowing until it came to planning permission stage - by which time, the funding is already in place, and the planning dept would have an easier job if sites already approved in principal . We must fight this tooth and nail.
What is the RSS? This appears to say 170 houses per annum agreed in 2007, until 2026, but this has increased to 250 per annum in 2008, that's without the Growth Point Bid which increases it still further. These figures are throughout the Craven district aren't they? Why should South Craven be allocated 26% of the total number, Skipton 35%, with the other 4/5 regions having the smaller portion split between them.
Please people, read this, its frightening. We all need to attend the public meetings this week and the council meeting next week - save our villages.

The Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 has two tiers - Regional Spatial Strategy (RSS) and Local Development Framework (LDF).

As I understand it, the RSS/LDF plans earlier in 2008 were for 250 dwellings per year, spread across the entire Craven district. The recent revision is for 300 per year entirely in Sutton, Glusburn and Cross Hills.
