Hambleton District Council's new Local Plan

Hambleton District Council is preparing a new Local Plan. The new Local Plan will set out how much land should be provided to accommodate new homes and jobs that are needed within Hambleton up to 2035 and where this should be located. It will consider the need for new homes and jobs alongside the need for associated infrastructure such as shops, community facilities, transport, open space, sport and recreation, health and education within the context of protecting what is special about Hambleton.

The council consulted on the Issues and Options document in early 2016 and in late 2016 it consulted on the Preferred Options documents. This identified the councils preferred approach to policies and sites (Further details of these stages of consultation can be found here).
