York development plan will take two more years
10:16am Saturday 21st July 2012 in News
A NEW plan for the future development of York is expected to take at least two more years to complete.
City of York Council withdrew its Local Development Framework (LDF), an over-arching strategy for planning and development in the city, after a Government inspector raised concerns that it was not sound.
Under new planning policy the council is required to submit a local plan, which is a similar strategy, with more focus on neighbourhoods.
Neil Taylor, interim director for city and environmental services at City of York Council, told members of the York Economic Partnership that although they could take evidence from the LDF, mandatory public consultation times meant that the earliest they could resubmit a plan would be in two years.
