HAVE YOUR SAY ON THE EAST RIDING COUNCIL LOCAL PLAN
Residents are being invited to have their say on proposed plans for development that will shape the future of the East Riding for years to come.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is asking for people’s views and comments on the East Riding Draft Local Plan Update, which sets out revised planning policies, including housing and employment development targets for the East Riding to 2039.
The current East Riding Local Plan was adopted in April 2016 and the updated plan is proposing 20,900 dwellings to be built in the East Riding over the plan period with the draft sites for allocation also included in the proposals.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the extended consultation will take place over 10 weeks. The documents for people to comment on can be found at www.eastriding.gov.uk/localplanupdate where there is a series of interactive information pages which summarise key issues and will signpost readers to the various consultation documents.
Hard copies of the documents will also be available to view at the council’s libraries, customer service centres, multi-service centres and mobile libraries during normal opening times. Please consider accessing the documents online before travelling to an East Riding facility.
Councillor Gary McMaster, portfolio holder for planning, infrastructure and housing said: “The current Local Plan was adopted in 2016 and the council has now reviewed the plan and is now consulting on a draft update.
“I would urge people to take a look at the proposals and let us know their views on the proposed housing, employment and mixed-use allocations across the towns and villages in the East Riding”. Comments can be made online via www.eastriding.gov.uk/localplanupdate or by writing to Forward Planning (AS67), East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Cross Street, Beverley, HU17 9BA. All responses should be received no later than Friday, 6 August 2021.
Make sure your local high street comes back booming.
