The Local Plan

Planned maintenance to the Planning Portal

Due to an upgrade to the Planning Portal between 9am and midday on Saturday 21 October, customers will be unable to view documents on the site during this time.

The 'Local Plan' is a city wide plan which helps with development control in York. It sets out the opportunities and policies on what will or will not be permitted and where, including new homes and businesses.

New local plan consultation

Between 18 September and 30 October 2017 we are hosting a Pre-Publication draft Local Plan Consultation as part of preparing a New Local Plan; we'd like your views on the housing and employment requirements as well as the potential site allocations to meet the demand.

The Local Plan (2005)

The City of York Draft Control Local Plan Incorporating the 4th Set of Changes (April 2005) and the associated proposals maps for north York, south York and the city centre is currently a material consideration for development control decisions.

Individual policies in the plan should not be interpreted in isolation - the overall plan should be regarded as one single publication, together with its associated proposals map, see how to use the Local Plan and the Local Plan user guide.

Within the local plan, each policy sets out the criteria that planning applications are considered against. See a list of policies within each chapter. Each policy has a number and title that should be quoted in any correspondence relating to the Local Plan.

Using maps

Please contact the Planning and Environmental Management Team if you would like to view a large scale map, request an extract of a particular area or have specific boundary enquiries related to the Draft Control Local Plan Incorporating the 4th Set of Changes (April 2005) .
