Planning constraints are policies or conditions that affect whether, and how, a property or piece of land can be developed.
You can use this map to check constraints that may affect development plans for land or property in the East Riding area.
Please note: this map acts as a guide and does not feature all planning constraints that the council consider within the planning application process.

When we consider a planning application for proposed development, we have to take into account various planning constraints which can affect our decision, these include the following: (please note this list is not exhaustive)
These are areas of land identified by the Environment Agency (EA) as potentially at risk of flooding. The EA categorizes the areas into flood zones. The extent of the risk will depend on which flood zone the land falls into. For further information on these flood zones please visit our Planning Interactive Constraints Map and navigate to the Environment Agency website.
Trees that have been identified as important to the appearance of an area can be protected by Tree Preservation Orders either individually or as a group. To find out if a proposed development site contains protected trees please visit the Planning Interactive Constraints Map and load the TPO layer.
To find out more about (TPO's) and applying to carry out works to TPO trees please visit https://www2.eastriding.gov.uk/environment/planning-and-building-control/trees-and-hedges/tree-preservation-orders/
Areas of architectural and historic interest have been identified as Conservation Areas to preserve their character. You can search for conservation areas in the East Riding using our Planning Interactive Constraints Map and load the Conservation layer.

Nationally important historic or architectural buildings are "listed" to protect them from alterations. Listed Building Consent will be needed for any works which affect the special character of a listed building.
To find out if a proposed development site contains or is within the curtilage of a listed building please visit the Planning Interactive Constraints Map and load the Listed Building layer.
