Information about what the previous structure was, what were the issues and options, what are the preferred options smaller settlements and transport development plan documents (DPD) issues and options.
Under the council's revised Local Development Scheme (LDS), the following Development Plan Documents (DPD) will not be progressed further:
However, the issues and options identified in these early consultation documents, together with the responses to them, have helped to develop the preparation of the current Core Strategy DPD and Allocations DPD.
An LDF Issues and Options paper was prepared for public consultation in August 2005. It included the topics of Housing, Employment, Smaller Settlements and Generic Development Control Policies, and is available to view below:

In 2006, a Preferred Options version of the Smaller Settlements Development Plan Document (DPD) was prepared to identify a number of ‘Market Villages’ (see Joint Structure Plan Policy DS4). These are the settlements that, along with towns such as Bridlington, Beverley, Market Weighton, Hedon and Goole, which act as the area’s main service centres, can provide for most of the many people who live in the rural parts of the East Riding.
Limited development would be allowed in these Market Villages to meet local needs. This development would help sustain their roles as places providing important local services for people who live in them and their surrounding rural areas.
Those settlements not identified as 'Market Villages' would be treated as 'Rural Villages' in line with policy DS5 of the Joint Structure Plan. This does not mean that no change will take place in 'Rural Villages'. Developments such as affordable housing for identified local needs, rural diversification, community services and facilities, and tourism would still be acceptable in principle.

As this DPD is not to be progressed further, it can only be given limited weight in any development control decisions. In the absence of any other guidance in the Development Plan on those settlements that should be treated as 'Market Villages' under Joint Structure Plan (JSP ) policy DS4, the Preferred Options version of the Smaller Settlements DPD, together with the outcome of the consultation exercise, will act as a starting point in the consideration of relevant applications. However, it should not be treated as determinative of their sustainability as proposals for development in different villages will need to consider a whole range of sustainability issues.
A separate Issues and Options paper was prepared for the preparation of a Transport Development Plan Document (DPD).

The consultation period for the Transport DPD – Issues and Options ended on 21 November 2006. The file below reports on the Issues and Options consultation and sets out the comments received, together with officer responses. It also sets out reasons for why certain transport schemes are not being progressed through the Preferred Approach Core Strategy DPD.
