The current East Riding Local Plan was adopted in 2016. The council is required to assess whether a review of the Local Plan is needed within five years of adoption. Our assessment has found that an update is required to respond to:
- changes in the new National Planning Policy Framework
- issues identified in the inspector’s report on the Local Plan examination; and
- the monitoring of current Local Plan policies and updates to the Evidence Base.
As such, the council has started to update the Local Plan and consult on proposed changes.
