Current Thinking (October 2017)

Towards the end of 2017 we asked for comments and feedback on three key areas for the New Local Plan - settlement hierarchy, housing strategy and Important Undeveloped and Community Spaces. We produced a short document which poses thirteen questions around a possible policy approach to these areas. Consultation has now closed.

For those who want more background on these topics or more information about how we arrived at our suggested way forward three topics papers have been produced. These also discuss possible alternative ways forward, or options.

The First Steps Document (September 2016)

Consultation on the first stage of our Local Plan review, called 'First Steps' ran for an eleven week period to 18 November 2016.  The purpose of the consultation was to gain initial views on what people think about the North York Moors National Park generally - what they value about it, what needs improvement, and what people think the key issues are. We have examined all responses and would like to thank everyone who took the time to respond. A report summarising the responses to the consultation is available.
