Julian Organising Local Plan Public Meeting for Haxby & Wigginton Residents on 3rd September

August 30, 2016

Julian has organised a public meeting with Council Leader David Carr for residents of Haxby and Wigginton to discuss the housing proposals in their area as part of the Local Plan.

The meeting will be held at the Haxby & Wigginton Methodist Church, The Village, Haxby, YO32 2JJ, between 9.30am-11.00am on Saturday 3rd September.

The new Local Plan is currently out for public consultation, and Mr Sturdy has been hosting a number of meetings around York Outer to hear what local residents think about the new proposals. The Conservative-led City of York Council have reassessed the evidence behind the housing figures, and the total number of houses required has been revised down from the 22,000 which Labour proposed in 2013 to a more sensible 10,800.

This has resulted in many changes to the proposed housing sites across York Outer, and Mr Sturdy is keen to hear what residents think about the revised housing allocations.

Julian said, “It is very important that residents across York respond to the Council’s consultation on their latest draft of the Local Plan. Balancing the need to deliver more housing for York residents with the protection of our green belt and historic rural setting is no easy task, but on the whole I do see this revised draft as a vast improvement on the previous Labour administration’s Local Plan.

“I am encouraging all residents of Haxby & Wigginton who want to learn more about the Local Plan and the proposals in their area to come along to the public meeting on 3rd September. This will be an opportunity for local people to discuss the proposals in an open forum, much like the meeting I held in Haxby back in 2014.”

The Council’s consultation on their Preferred Sites draft is open until 12th September. Details about the Plan can be found here: https://www.york.gov.uk/info/20051/planning_policy/ 710/new_local_plan
