Context and Summary

The Selby District Core Strategy (adopted 2013) included a housing target of 2000 dwellings across 18 Designated Service Villages. When housing completions and sites with planning permission in Designated Service Villages since the 2011 (the base date of the Core Strategy) on are taken off that target there is a requirement to allocate land at least 769[1] new dwellings.

The Designated Service Villages are:

Appleton Roebuck

Hambleton

Barlby and Osgodby

Hemingbrough

Brayton.

Kellington

Brotherton and Byram

Monk Fryston and Hillam.

Carlton

North Duffield

Cawood

Riccall

Church Fenton

South Milford

Eggborough and Whitely

Thorpe Willoughby

Escrick

Ulleskelf

As the single housing target was provided for all 18 Designated Service Villages, the purpose of this study is to discuss options to distribute these dwellings across the Selby’s Designated Service Villages (DSVs).

Section 7 of the report proposes 3 potential options to apportion growth across the 18 settlements. It should be emphasised that the figures provided in any option are only starting points and a guide to the relative levels of growth likely to be accommodated in each village.  These options have been derived from the responses received from the PLAN Selby Initial Consultation.

Broadly these comprise:

Option 1: Proportionate dispersal across all Designated Service Villages: The proportionate dispersal method applies a blanket application of 4.75%[2] growth per settlement.

Option 2: Distribution based on services and accessibility: A distribution based upon services and accessibility.  This study utilises Selby District Council’s existing evidence to conduct an appraisal of each settlement in terms of the number of services and its public transport accessibility and accessibility to employment. Those settlements ranking highest following the assessment are apportioned a higher number of dwellings, and those ranking lower are apportioned a reduced number.

Option 3: Growth Based on avoiding Green Belt release: The final option apportions a blanket 6.5%[3] growth to those Designated Service Villages not within Green Belt.

[1]  Completions and outstanding plots with planning permission 1st April 2015 (including10% deduction for non-delivery of planning applications).

[2] a 4.75% increase allows the approximate amount of new homes required to be allocated (769 dwellings)

[3] a 6.5 % increase allows the approximate amount of new homes required to be allocated (769 dwellings)

The ‘Let’s Talk PLAN Selby’ engagement allows the opportunity for stakeholders to comment further on these options and put forward alternative options.

The following table provides a comparison of the potential distribution of dwellings per DSV under each option.

For the sake of consistency and comparison, the same calculation method as was commented on in the PLAN Selby Initial Consultation is used here.  However, some responses to the Initial Consultation from Parish Councils suggested an alternative calculation.  This will be the subject of discussion with Parish Council’s during the Focussed Engagement.

Focussed Engagement Consultation (29 June 2015 - 10 August 2015)

The Focussed Engagement consultations undertaken between 29 June and 10 August 2015 were arranged to allow us to understand comments made in the Initial Consultation in more detail, talk about issues and options arising, and seek your views on a number of draft studies before they were finalised.

The PDF icon Growth options for Designated Service Villages study was published as part of the focussed engagement. In responding to the focussed engagement, people were asked to consider a range of PDF iconspecific questions relating to the Growth Options for Designated Services Villages study.

Next Steps

We are in the process of evaluating representations along with other evidence for PLAN Selby. We anticapate that we will go out for the preferred options consultation in the summer of 2016. More information on the timetable for PLAN Selby is available in the Authorities Monitoring Report.
