Potential Sites consultation

Information about the potential sites consultation for the Allocations Document and the responses received through consultation.

What was the Potential Sites consultation?

The Potential Sites consultation was the first step in preparing an Allocations Document. It presented development site options for you to consider and was presented in two parts. 

Part 1 provided the explanation text, outlining the process for preparing the Allocations Document, drawing out how much land we require for different uses, and what factors we need to consider when allocating particular sites. It also included a ‘schedule of sites’ by settlement – these were tables which provide a range of information about individual sites to help you consider which are the most suitable for allocating. 

Part 2 comprises a set of maps outlining the location of potential sites referred to in the ‘schedule of sites’ in Part 1. These potential sites are spread across various locations in the East Riding – primarily focused in and around the settlements identified the Preferred Approach Core Strategy

Part 2 - Maps

For the Potential Sites consultation, we set out a range of sites to consider. Only a proportion of these will be needed over the next 15-20 years. The purpose of this stage was to seek people’s views and gather more information.

Sustainability Appraisal

A Sustainability Appraisal (incorporating Strategic Environmental Assessment) must be undertaken for all Development Plan Documents to assess their potential economic, environmental and social impacts. At the Potential Sites stage, a Part II Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report and a draft Sustainability Appraisal Site Assessment Methodology (SASAM) Briefing Note were produced for consultation.
The Part II Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report provides a review of relevant plans and programmes and baseline data relating to the LDF (now called the Local Plan). It sets out a number of sustainability objectives that the proposed allocations will be assessed against.
