CONSULTATION CLOSED 9 November 2016
5 October 2016 - Consultation on Identification and Review of Visually Important Undeveloped Areas
As part of the production of the Ryedale Plan-Local Plan Sites Document the Council is undertaking a review of existing Visually Important Undeveloped Areas, and this has lead to a select number of VIUAs to be removed; and some VIUA designations to be amended in their extent.
Furthermore, as a result of evaluating responses received in the 2009 Consultation; consideration of new evidence; and work undertaken to assess sites submitted for consideration as potential development sites, the Council proposes a series of VIUAs in: Amotherby, Ampleforth, Hovingham, Old Malton, Norton, Pickering, Slingsby and Welburn.
Helmsley is not part of this review, it is covered by the Helmsley Plan, and the VIUAs were considered as part of the production of that document.
This consultation is not about the principle of Visually Important Undeveloped Areas; they are an established policy approach of the Development Plan: The Local Plan Strategy. We seek your views on the whether these changes to existing VIUAs, and proposed new VIUAs, are appropriate.
Members will consider the responses to this consultation as part of work leading up to further consultation on the Local Plan Sites Document early next year.
Ryedale District Council,
