Site Selection Methodology - Site Assessment
The Council has now finalised the Site Selection Methodology (SSM) which is intended to inform the selection of sites for allocation through the Local Plan Sites and Helmsley Plan Development Plan Documents. This is an objective assessment based on securing development which best meets the objectives of the Ryedale Plan and associated Sustainability Appraisal objectives, and in the case of Helmsley the Objectives of the North York Moors National Park Core Strategy and Sustainability Appraisal. It is a tool for Officers to objectively assess sites submitted to the Council to enable informed choices to be made on the selection of sites.

Where land owners have asked that a site be discontinued they are listed as "Discontinued Site".
