The East Riding Local Plan was considered by East Riding Council’s cabinet on Tuesday.

The Proposed Submission Local Plan is made up of two documents – a Strategy Document and an Allocations Document.

The cabinet approved the Proposed Submission Strategy Document for public consultation between January and March 2014. The Strategy Document identifies the scale and distribution of new development in the East Riding to 2028/29.

The Proposed Submission Allocations Document and Policies Map was also given the green light for public consultation between January and March 2014. This identifies sites that will be allocated for development until 2028/29.

Once completed,

The Local Plan will be used to determine planning applications until 2029.

It will set out the amount of development that will take place in each town and village in the East Riding, for land uses such as housing, retail, employment development and open space.

It will also set out where within each town and village the development will be located.
