|The Selby District Local Plan (SDLP), which was adopted on 8 February 2005, is being replaced by a Local Development Framework (LDF), although policies in the adopted SDLP remain in force for the time being.
In contrast to the Selby District Local Plan, the Local Development Framework comprises a portfolio of separate documents that will help deliver the spatial plan for the District.
Some of the Local Development Documents (LDD), for example the Core Strategy, Site Allocations Development Plan Document (DPD) and Development Management DPD, will together with the Regional Spatial Strategy form the statutory development plan for the District. These (development plan documents) will be subject to independent examination by a Planning Inspector to test their soundness and will form the basis for all development management decisions.
Other types of Local Development Documents, comprising Supplementary Planning Documents (SPD) will be material considerations in this process but will not be subject to examination. SPDs may cover issues such as developer contributions, affordable housing, development briefs and design statements.
Details of the manner in which the Council intends to achieve continuous community involvement are set out in a separate document - the Statement of Community Involvement (SCI).
The LDF will also help deliver the spatial elements of the Sustainable Community Strategy and other key policies and programmes of the Council and its partners.
