York’s ‘Local Plan’ takes next steps – ask your questions

Work continues to progress York’s Local Plan following a letter received from the Government appointed planning inspectors.

The letter, which has been published by City of York Council today, follows examination hearings on several key aspects of the plan, including the duty to co-operate, housing numbers and the spatial strategy and Green Belt issues. The letter invites a response from the Council on aspects of the approach it has taken to define York’s Green Belt boundaries.

The council has already begun this work and has formally responded to the planning inspectors to thank them for their work so far. To progress the Local Plan, City of York will continue to work with the planning inspectors to justify the approach taken to define York’s greenbelt boundaries.

The  Chambers Property Event on  Monday 29 June will give you the opportunity to ask questions about the Local Plan following the Inspectors latest correspondence with the council expressing concerns about the Green Belt boundary methodology. Book Now

The full letter can be viewed at www.york.gov.uk/localplan
