Helmsley Plan

The Helmsley Plan – Publication Version

The town of Helmsley is split between the Local Planning Authorities of Ryedale District Council and the North York Moors National Park Authority. The two authorities, together with Helmsley Town Council, are producing the 'Helmsley Plan'.

The Helmsley Plan identifies a number of sites for housing and employment development up to 2027. It also contains a suite of policies to guide various forms of development and to manage change in the town. During the summer of 2013, the North York Moors National Park Authority and Ryedale District Council asked residents, businesses and other organisations for their views on a first draft of the plan containing the preferred sites to accommodate future development.  

Consultation on the Publication version of the Helmsley Plan finished on Friday 7th March 2014. The National Park Authority and Ryedale District Council are currently considering the comments received and the Plan will be submitted to the Secretary of State later this year for an examination. If you require more information in the meantime, please contact Caroline Skelly on 01439 772700 or via email to policy@northyorkmoors.org.uk
