The Draft Local Plan Consultation Process

Over the past few months, Julian has been pushing the Council to carry out a thorough and inclusive consultation process and he has challenged them to listen and to act upon the views of those residents who took part in it. At the same time he has encouraged as many local residents as possible to get involved in the consultation process and be loud and clear with the Council when commenting on the proposals. 

The initial consultation process on the draft Local Plan has now closed and any representations made will not be considered as part of this process. However, you can still contact the Council and let them know what you think of the proposals, either in writing to City of York Council, West Offices, Station Rise, York YO1 6GA or via email to haveyoursay@york.gov.uk. It is important that local residents keep the pressure on the Council to change the potentially damaging proposals within the Plan.

The process of adopting the Local Plan is far from over. Council Officers will now review and respond to all representations made during the consultation. While doing this, Julian hopes they will also make considerable changes to the draft Plan. Once the ‘Submission Local Plan’ is voted through by full Council in early 2014, it will then be sent to the Planning Inspectors who will open it up for a further consultation process which will be run as a public inquiry. Julian will be encouraging all constituents to take part in this consultation as well, once further details are announced.

If you have any specific concerns or queries over the Local Plan, please contact Julian and his team here.
