PEOPLE have just a week left to comment on the masterplan that will shape development in the East Riding until the end of the next decade. East Riding Council’s consultation on the final draft of its Local Plan is set to close just before midnight next Monday, December 5. 

Council Planning Portfolio Holder Cllr Claire Holmes said the authority wanted to hear what people have to say on the draft, which includes housing allocations. The final consultation on the draft Local Plan comes ahead of the submission of the final version of the document early next year. A Government inspector is then due to examine it to make sure it is acceptable and complies with planning policies before being adopted in 2024.

A WHITE van stolen from an address in Long Lane, Beverley, last week has since been found in Hull and returned to its owner, police have told us. Police Community Support Officer Lee LeGrove said thieves had managed to steal the van because of an insecure door and urged people to be extra careful of opportunist thefts in the run-up to Christmas.
