Current consultations

The new Local Plan Publication draft

We're developing a new Local Plan, in line with the publication of the National Planning Policy Framework (2012); it will provide a development framework, set strategic priorities and form the basis for planning decisions for the whole city.

Take part in the consultation on the Local Plan Publication draft - all of the comments you make will go to the government and planning inspector, who will consider 2 questions about the plan:

  • whether the plan is within the law
  • whether it can be considered ‘sound’

For more information see 'York's Local Plan: making your comments to government'.

Once 'adopted' the new Local Plan will determine how the city develops over the next 15 years and beyond, so your views are very important.

Consultation closes at midnight on Wednesday 4 April 2018

Housing services online

We’re improving online access to our Housing services and we would like you to tell us which other Housing services you would like to access in this way. We know that more and more of our tenants are getting online which gives us a fantastic opportunity to offer you an improved 24/7 service using the latest technologies.

Please join our Housing services consultation and send us your feedback about accessing services such as, viewing your rent account, bidding for or transferring to another home, or booking home repairs online.

You’ll be helping us ensure you get the efficient and effective service you need, and for us to get best value for you too.

Oakhaven 'extra care' development

There is a need to address the housing needs of elderly people in York. We are taking positive action by making potential development sites available for new 'extra care' housing. 'Extra care' housing supports elderly people to live independently and safely with easy access to social activities in the knowledge that care is at hand when they need it.

In March 2017, Ashley House was appointed to deliver and operate an 'extra care' development on the site of the Oakhaven Older Persons' Home on Acomb Road. The proposed 'state of the art' development will provide 56 apartments for older people, and will include a lounge and dining room serving hot meals.

Neighbours are invited to a ‘pop-in’ event at York Medical Group, 199 Acomb Road, York, YO2 4HD on Thursday 1 March between 4.00pm and 7.00pm. You will be able to meet the team to see and discuss the proposals and give feedback. The feedback we receive will help shape our final plans prior to submitting our formal planning application.

You can also visit Acomb Explore Library between 1 and 8 March where we will be displaying the plans for Oakhaven, or email your comments to OakhavenDevelopment@york.gov.uk.

Consultation closes at midnight on Thursday 8 March 2018
