About the Plan


The Parish of Rufforth with Knapton is situated approximately 5 miles to the north west of the City of York. It consists of the villages of Rufforth and Knapton, the surrounding agricultural land along with the Waste Disposal site at Harewood Whin. The area that is the subject of the Neighbourhood Plan is the entire parish.


The Neighbourhood Plan gives all residents of the parishes the opportunity to influence how development will affect the area in the years to come in terms of the development of housing, business and valued green spaces. It will determine how vital amenities will cope with potential increase in population and how the facilities and transport links of the villages can be sustained.
