Present Consultations

We are not currently running a consultation about PLAN Selby.

Previous Consultation

Pool of Sites Consultation: 2 October – 27 November 2017- please note this has now closed

The Pool of Sites consultation includes plans and initial assessments of all possible sites that could be included in the Site Allocations Local Plan next year. It shares current thinking about potential sites and asks for your views on them. It is also a last opportunity to suggest new sites (further information on site submissions is available below).

What is the purpose of this stage?

We consulted on an emerging approach back in 2014 and again in 2015. We now want to:

  • share with you where we are up to with the work we have been doing since then;
  • seek your views on possible development sites and the method we have used to narrow down sites to those we think could be suitable for development;
  • give a final opportunity to put forward new sites; and
  • seek your opinions on the emerging allocation approach and how we need to tackle some key issues in the Site Allocations Local Plan which we will consult on next year.

The documents published as part of the Pool of Sites are available to view below:

Please note there is a typo in paragraph 2.3 of the Pool of Sites Consultation document which refers to the need for 466 new homes per year in Selby District. This should have stated 431 new homes per year, which was the figure established in the Draft SHMA dated June 2015.

We have also produced a list of Frequently Asked Questions.

Supporting Evidence Base

In addition to the main consultation documents we have a number of evidence base documents which support the preparation of the Site Allocations Local Plan. The latest evidence base documents are available to view on the PLAN Selby Evidence Base webpage.
