Brief description

SPDs provide more detailed advice or guidance on the application of policies in the East Riding Local Plan. The Local Plan provides for the amount, location and type of development in the East Riding until the year 2029.


The Draft Masterplan has been prepared to guide the development of Local Plan housing allocation DRF-B. In total, this site allocates land to provide for around 810 new homes.


Important issues on which the Masterplan provides further guidance include:

·         the provision of a link road from the A614 to Bridlington Road;

·         improving foot, cycle, and public transport access;

·         landscaping and planting;

·         maintaining key viewpoints;

·         the provision of public open space;

·         housing mix; and

·         design, including appropriate densities, layout, and materials.


Once adopted, the Masterplan will become an important consideration in determining relevant planning applications on the site.

A public consultation drop-in session is being held on Tuesday 3 July 2018, 2pm - 7pm, at Driffield Community Centre (Mill Street, Driffield, YO25 6TR). Come along and speak with a planning officer about the consultation documents. Free parking is provided on site.
