Final chance to comment on major changes to plan

East Riding Council is encouraging the public to take up their final chance to comment on the draft East Riding Local Plan.

From now until Monday 30 September, the final stage in the consultation process will allow further comments to be submitted.

A draft Local Plan was published for public consultation between February and April 2013.

When completed it will provide the framework for managing new development and addressing the main planning issues in the East Riding until 2029.

This latest consultation is only one of the major changes to the draft Pplan, changes which were generated by the 8,600 plus comments received earlier this year in the last round of consultation.

The changes to be consulted upon this time round are significant changes about which the council feels it necessary to ask for people’s views again. Many smaller changes will also be made to the draft plan as it is finalised, to address issues raised earlier in the year.

The proposed major changes to the Draft Local Plan include the allocation of 19 new sites for development, including two in Stamford Bridge. Sites SMB2 and SMB3, based south of the A166, which have space for up to 176 new houses.

Residents and organisations wishing to take part in the final round of consultation will be able to do by accessing the interactive version of the Local Plan online at
