Last chance to input into borough’s Local Plan

Friday, 13 January 2023

We have published a draft version of our Local Plan for consultation following recent review.

The consultation starts today (Friday 13 January) and ends on Friday 24 February.

The plan covers policies and development allocations within the existing borough of Scarborough boundary, excluding the North York Moors National Park.

Although the Local Plan review will not progress beyond 1 April due to the creation of the single North Yorkshire Council, public views and comments on the draft will be used to inform a Local Plan for the new council that will cover all of North Yorkshire. For this reason, your feedback remains very important to us.

The draft plan and supporting documents are available to view and respond to on our consultation page.

Copies are also available at local libraries, Scarborough Customer First, Whitby harbour office and Filey Evron Centre.

Our planning colleagues will be available at the drop-in sessions below if you who would like to look at the plan, give feedback and ask questions:

  • Thursday 26 January, 2pm to 7pm – Filey Evron Centre (Rooms 21/22)
  • Thursday 2 February, 3pm to 7.30pm – Whitby Coliseum (Hopkinson Suite)
  • Thursday 9 February, 3.30pm to 7.30pm – The Street, Scarborough (Studio 2) 

They are also offering online engagement sessions via Microsoft Teams or Zoom, or phone sessions, on Thursday 19 January and Thursday 16 February. Sessions can be booked in slots of 15 minutes between 10am and 7pm by email or by calling 01723 232480.
