Development control and the local plan

We have a duty to produce a 'development plan' for our area; in York, ours is known as the Local Plan and provides a clear framework to:

  • guide and promote development where it is needed
  • protect the quality of York's unique historic, natural and built environment

Although not formally adopted, the 'City of York Draft Local Plan (incorporating the fourth Set of Changes, April 2005) is still used as the basis for development management decisions.
