Julian discusses planning issues in Ripon with Councillors

Julian has met with Councillors in Ripon to discuss the potential impact of a number of proposed developments across the City and in the surrounding area and pass on concerns raised by constituents.

A range of planning applications are currently being considered, with possibly further applications to follow, and concerns have been expressed about the impact on the City’s infrastructure.

Julian will also continue to push the Ministry of Defence for further clarification on the future of Claro and Deverell Barracks after the Army Basing Review.

Julian said:

“Although I am unable to get involved in specific planning applications, I was keen to meet with Ripon’s Councillors to receive an update on the range of proposed developments across the City and to hear about the impact they could have.

“It is also key that we have clarity on what is happening to Claro and Deverell Barracks and I am continuing to urge the Ministry of Defence to make decisions soon so we can plan for the future.”
