Brief description

We would like your views on the Proposed Submission Local Plan Update (2022)

The Local Plan sets out the vision and planning policies for the area for the next 15 years. It is a key driver in determining planning applications and development opportunities, including identifying land allocations for specific types of development such as housing and employment, in the East Riding.

The current Local Plan was adopted in 2016 and has been undergoing a process of review and update. We previously sought people's views in 2018 and again in 2021 on a Draft Update.

We are now asking for your views on the latest version of the update, titled the Proposed Submission Local Plan Update. This is the final time we will ask your views on the Local Plan Update before it is submitted to the Secretary of State for Examination. We are holding a series of drop in events where you can see and discuss the Plan.

An Independent Planning Inspector will consider the responses made on the Plan. The Inspector concludes through a written report whether the Plan is sound and legally compliant, can be made so with changes, or it is not. Adoption of the Plan is undertaken through a Full Council process. It is expected that the Examination in Public will take place in 2023.
