Having secured a 90-minute debate in Westminster Hall, he opened the debate by highlighting the disparity that still exists in outcomes between school pupils with SEN and their non-SEN peers.

The ‘Further Sites’ Consultation Process

The Local Plan Further Sites consultation ran from Wednesday 4th June to Wednesday 16th July and has now closed.

However, there is nothing to stop you sending your views on the Local Plan to the Council at any time and if you have any comments which you’d like to be taken into account during the process, we recommend you submit them, either:

1. via email, to localplan@york.gov.uk and haveyoursay@york.gov.uk

2. in writing, to City of York Council, West Offices, Station Rise, York, YO1 6GA.

Next Steps

Council Officers are now tasked with examining and considering the responses to the Further Sites consultation. This work is expected to be carried out over the summer, with the draft Submission Local Plan being published in the autumn, although this timescale may be subject to delays depending on the scale of the work at hand. Once published, this document will effectively represent the Council’s final position on the Local Plan and will contain all of the proposals they are intending to pursue. It will be subject to a vote at Full Council, as well as a further city-wide consultation. The Council’s position is unlikely to change by this stage however and the consultation will be more for the benefit of the Planning Inspectors, who, once submitted, will launch a public inquiry on the Plan, expected to take place at the end of the year or in early 2015. 

 

Public Meetings

As with the previous Local Plan ‘Preferred Options’ consultation, Julian hosted a series of public Q&A meetings across the constituency on the Further Site proposals.
