Selby district local plan (SDLP) 2005

The Selby District Local Plan (SDLP) was formally adopted on 8th February 2005. The Local Plan develops and underpins many of the aims and objectives of the Council. It provides a comprehensive land-use framework for promoting, co-ordinating and controlling future development.

As well as allocating land for new homes and jobs, the Plan promotes policies to protect the heritage of the District and to ensure the provision of affordable housing, open space, cycleways and other facilities.

Important Notice

Under the provisions of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004 a number of policies in the Local Plan expired on 7th February 2008. All other policies were 'saved' by Direction of the Secretary of State, and continue to be used in making planning decisions until such time that they are replaced by new policies. On 22 October 2013 the Council adopted the Selby District Core Strategy Local Plan, the policies within which replace a further number of those 'saved' policies.

The table below sets out a composite list of changes to the policies and Inset Maps of the Selby District Local Plan (2005).

The Core Strategy and remaining SDLP policies make up the Local Plan for the District and need to be read alongside each other.
