Have your say on East Riding planning policy …
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is beginning consultations that could see a review of its Local Plan, which sets future planning policy across the whole of the council’s area.
Councillor Symon Fraser, the council’s portfolio holder for asset management, housing and environment, told Beverley FM: “When the council adopted the East Riding Local Plan in 2016, it became one of the first in the Yorkshire and Humber region to do so. The plan placed the council in a strong position to shape future development and, over the past two years, it has ensured work has taken place in sustainable locations, whilst protecting areas that were identified as being of importance to the character of the area.”
He continued: “Now the council is seeking views on the plan and also considering new sites for development.”
Ultimately, any review will help shape a revised draft local plan and could see new parcels of land designated for development and as part of the consultation process public drop-in sessions to view documents and talk to planning officers are being held, including one at the Beverley Treasure House on Thursday December 13th, from 2 to 7pm. Councillor Fraser told us: “I would urge people to come along to the events and have their say.”
