the ryedale plan

On Monday, 21 May 2012, Ryedale District Council submitted the Ryedale Plan: Local Plan Strategy to the Secretary of State for formal examination by an independent Planning Inspector.

The document proposes key policies for managing growth and change across the District to 2027. Once adopted it will form part of the Development Plan for the District which will: set out the amount of new housing, retail and employment development that will take place in different parts of the District; identify the type of development required to meet the needs of local communities; outline the types of changes that will happen at each of the five towns as well as the wider rural area; list some of the projects and investment that will support and deliver the strategy; and provide a framework to assist in the determination of planning applications.

The document covers the area of Ryedale District which is outside the North York Moors National Park.

The Plan and main supporting documents, including all of the representations which were received when the Plan was published for consultation, and received following a more recent consultation on the implications of the New National Planning Policy Framework, are attached below alternatively they can be inspected at:
