Previous Consultations

Additional Sites Consultation 8 March – 19 April 2018

The Additional Sites consultation ran between 8th March and 19th April 2018 and included the main consultation document and associated appendices with maps and initial assessments of all the extra sites that were submitted in response to the Pool of Sites consultation. It shared current thinking about potential sites and asked for your views on them.

What was the purpose of this stage?

In order to ensure these sites were subject to the same level of scrutiny, we asked for your views on whether you thought these new and amended sites were suitable for development.

Please note we did not seek comments on those sites which were included as part of Pool of Sites consultation only the additional or amended sites. Neither did we ask for any more new sites.

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

 

Pool of Sites Consultation: 2 October – 27 November 2017

The Pool of Sites consultation ran between 2nd October and 27th November 2017 and included plans and initial assessments of all possible sites that could be included in the Site Allocations Local Plan.

What was the purpose of this stage?

The Pool of Sites consultation shared the current thinking about potential sites and asked for your views on them. It was also a last opportunity to suggest new sites.

The purpose of this stage was to:

  • share with you where we are up to with the work we have been doing since the previous consultations;

  • 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.

The documents published as part of the Pool of Sites Consultation 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.
