The Inspector's Report was published on the Wednesday, 14 August 2013. The adopted Ryedale Plan - Local Plan Strategy incorporates the Main Modifications that have been recommended by the Inspector and set out in the accompanying appendix to the Inspector's report, and a number of minor Additional Modifications.

Any person(s) aggrieved by the Ryedale Plan - Local Plan Strategy may make an application to the High Court under Section 113 of the Planning and Compulsory Act 2004 on the grounds that:

  • the document is not within the appropriate power of the local authority; or
  • that a procedural requirement has not been complied with

Any such application must be made no later than six weeks from the date on which the Local Plan Strategy was adopted, which commenced on Thursday, 5 September 2013 and concludes on Thursday, 17 October 2013.

The Local Plan Strategy and all supporting information, including the Sustainability Appraisal, are available to view on the Council's website.
