North Yorkshire Council Local Plan – Call For Sites

North Yorkshire Council’s preparations for an authority-wide Local Plan are underway and a target adoption date of 2028 has been set. The Local Plan will establish the approach for new development across almost all of North Yorkshire for the next 15 to 20 years.

The first stage of public consultation this year, the Council has commenced a ‘call for sites’ process. This represents the first opportunity for landowners, developers and other key stakeholders to promote their sites across the County for development through the Local Plan.

Sites for residential, commercial, infrastructure, and environmental enhancement projects can be put forward. National policy requirements such as biodiversity net gain, nature recovery, energy efficient builds, and ‘beautiful’ design will be considered as part of each submission.

Now it’s time to act, if you have previously submitted sites, have new sites for submission, or would like to consider land in your ownership and its suitability for development.

Here at Lister Haigh we currently assist landowners across the Yorkshire region using our extensive planning and development experience.
