East Riding of Yorkshire Rural Strategy 2016 - 2020
Helping to Shaping the East Riding you live and work in.
Work has commenced to consult on and prepare a new Rural Strategy for 2016-2020. This will include a major revision of the Action Plan and a review of both its structure and content. We aim to have this new Strategy in place by Spring 2016.
A mini-refresh of the existing Strategy was conducted in early 2015 and includes a ‘holding’ review of the current Action Plan, giving a current position statement on existing actions and their associated work-streams, and an indication of future direction of travel in each instance. It is providing an important starting point for the development of the new Rural Strategy 2016-2020.

The council has a small rural policy team in the Directorate of Planning and Economic Regeneration. The team works to ensure that the council and partner organisations are kept up-to-date of the latest rural issues and developments, and seeks to influence rural policy decisions at all levels.
The team leads on the preparation of the council's rural strategy and action plan. Our work also includes contributing to national policy consultations on a range of matters to ensure that the local, rural voice is heard. Recent work has included renewable energy, the natural environment, countryside access and rural transport.
For further information on rural matters please contact the council’s rural policy team.
