City of York Council is inviting developers, landowners, businesses and the public to help shape the city’s future Development Plan, by informing the council of any sites that might be considered suitable for development or redevelopment over the next 15-20 years or beyond.
Letters are being sent this week asking organisations to submit details of their sites so that the council can consider whether they should be taken forward further through the plan process.
The aim of the consultation exercise is to support the production of a development plan for York. However, this is only the start of the process – sites submitted and their suggested uses will be assessed for their suitability and deliverability to evaluate whether they should be taken forward. The most appropriate and deliverable sites will then be subject to further public consultation.
Cllr Dave Merrett, Cabinet Member for Transport, Planning and Sustainability, said:”It’s important to have an up-to-date understanding of all the sites to understand how we can all work together to produce a Development Plan that will support everyone in York for the next 15 or 20 years.”
Potential sites and their proposed uses should be submitted using the council’s response form, which can be located here between 29 August and 12 October.
Alternatively, to obtain a copy the Call for Sites response form please email firstname.lastname@example.org , phone 01904 5521356 or collect a form via
9 St Leonard’s Place or the Guildhall reception.
All completed forms and maps should be submitted by Friday 12 October.
A report setting out the approach for the delivery of a new Development Plan that will provide a fresh blueprint for the city will be taken to Cabinet in October.
