Save Crimple Valley

This Special Landscape Area which separates Pannal from Harrogate is under threat of becoming Harrogate's latest housing estate.

The valley's green fields and iconic views of the Crimple Viaduct are the first welcome thousands of visitors and tourists receive to the town.

Emergency General Meeting

Tuesday November 1st 2016 - Pannal Village Hall, HG3 1JG - 8pm

Plans for housing and economic development for the next 20 years have been published by Harrogate Borough Council. A PDF copy of the document relevant to Crimple Valley can be downloaded here.

The plans include threats to valley, much of which is either Special Landscape Area or Green Belt. For the past two decades this Group has sought to protect the valley and to mitigate the effects of adverse development.

If we are to face the challenges of the future the Group will need new blood as well as younger members and to seek to achieve these we will hold an Emergency General Meeting at 8pm on Tuesday November 1st in Pannal Village Hall near the railway station. It would help if you could let us know you are coming by emailing but please feel free to turn up on the day.

The meeting will be open to all - we look forward to seeing you!
