A Local Plan that's right for York

York's Conservatives are committed to delivering a Local Plan that's right for your, a plan that sensitively balances the need for more housing and economic growth within the city, and the need to protect our greenbelt.

The Local Plan aims to support the city’s economic growth, addresses the shortage of housing and helps shape future development and employment in York over the next 15-years and beyond.

The majority of the land removed sits within the draft Greenbelt with proposed green field housing sites cut by over 50 per cent from 862 hectares to 366.

Proposed housing on brownfield land has increased from 85 hectares (in 2014) to 101 hectares, with York Central alone earmarked for 1,500 new homes.
