York Council’s Green Belt submission

City of York Council has submitted more information about the definition of the city’s green belt to the Planning Inspector examining the local plan.

The council submitted the explanation of how it defines the outer boundary of the green belt, with explanations of other green belt boundaries set to follow. Officers also issued the timetable to deliver all the remaining additional information requested by Government inspectors by the end of April. 

Having received the bulk of this information in December and January, inspectors have previously indicated that the examination is likely to progress to online consultation over the new information, followed by further hearing sessions, most likely to be held in summer at the earliest.  

The council has published the submitted evidence on its key decisions page, which will be added to the latest correspondence on the examinations webpage www.york.gov.uk/localplanexamination shortly.
