New Local Plan

Selby District Local Plan logoThe New Local Plan is a vision and framework for future growth of our district, identifying where new housing, employment and other development could take place. It also sets out the policies we'll use to decide planning applications.

The preparation of a new Local Plan will help to ensure that the Council has a development plan for the whole district, in line with current national planning guidance which properly reflects its Economic Strategy and Corporate Priorities.

Timescales for Preparation of the Local Plan

The Local Development Scheme sets out the timescales for the preparation of the Local Plan.
