Another step towards adopting the East Riding Local Plan has been taken by East Riding Council.

The council’s cabinet has considered a report on the plan’s strategy document, recently found as ‘sound’ by an independent planning inspector.

The inspector’s report concluded that, subject to his recommended modifications, the document is sound and capable of adoption by the council.

The council’s cabinet has approved for the East Riding Local Plan Strategy Document to go to full council on 6 April to be considered for adoption.

The strategy document sets out the scale and distribution of new development, including how much housing, retail and employment growth will take place over the period to 2029.
