Julian to host Haxby Local Plan drop-in meeting

March 19, 2018

Julian will be holding a public local plan drop-in event on Saturday 24th March at Haxby Memorial Hall, from 10am-12noon to discuss the latest Local Plan proposals. Julian will be joined by Haxby and Wigginton ward councillors, Tony Richardson and John Gates.

Local MP, Julian Sturdy said “It has been a long road to reach this point in the Local Plan consultation process, but the latest offering will provide residents with a definitive local plan which will shape York’s future housing need.

I have fought, alongside our ward councillors, against unsustainable development in previous local plan consultations, which has seen proposed housing numbers brought under control”.

The Local Plan includes significant proposals for Haxby and Wigginton, notably the Land North of Haxby and the Clifton Gate site. The Conservative-led Council has reduced Labour’s unsustainable housing numbers, which would have threatened our already oversubscribed Outer Ring Road.

It is however still vital that existing concerns around transport, infrastructure and flooding are made during this Local Plan consultation.

As this is the final consultation before formal submission to the Planning Inspector, Julian is encouraging residents to submit their views on the document.

Written submissions can be made to:

Local Plan, FREEPOST RTEG-TYYU-KLTZ, City of York Council, West Offices, Station Rise, York, YO1 6GA.
