What was the East Riding Local Plan Options consultation?
Please note: the Local Plan Update has been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for examination. More information can be found on our submission and examination page.
The East Riding Local Plan Update Options Document was the first stage in reviewing the current Local Plan that was adopted in 2016. A series of options and questions were presented in the document, responses to which have helped shape a Draft Local Plan Update (May 2021) alongside updated evidence work and sustainability appraisal.
The council also undertook a ‘call for sites’ during the consultation period.
As part of the Local Plan Update, and in line with national planning requirements, the council prepared a draft statement of common ground with Hull City Council. The aim of the draft statement of common ground is to identify relevant cross-boundary planning issues and how these can be addressed through positive planning.
Why is the Local Plan being updated?
The council are required to undertake an assessment to determine if a review of the Local Plan is needed, within five years of adoption.
Given recent changes in the new National Planning Policy Framework and issues identified in the inspector’s report on the Local Plan examination, a review is required at this stage. Further detail is provided in Chapter 2 of the above Options Document.
How can I respond to the consultation?
The consultation period has now closed. We have reviewed the responses and considered the available evidence for the next stage - see Draft Local Plan Update (May 2021) .

What are the next steps for the Local Plan Update?
Following the consultation on the Options document in late 2018, the council considered the responses and reviewed the evidence to develop a Draft Local Plan Update. The submitted sites were assessed using a Site Assessment Methodology (SAM). Initial assessments were published to be ‘fact-checked’ by land bidders and Town and Parish Councils. The responses to the Draft Local Plan Update were considered and a Proposed Submission version of the Local Plan Update was prepared. Following consultation on this, the council submitted the Local Plan Update in March 2023 to the Planning Inspectorate for examination. We have a submission and examination page setting out more details.
