Malton Food Enterprise Zone: Consultation on Draft Local Development Order

Notice of Consultation under Articles 38 of the Town and Country Planning (Development Management Procedure) (England) Order 2015.

The Council is consulting on a draft Local Development Order (LDO) for the Malton Food Enterprise Zone (FEZ). The Malton FEZ was established in 2015 as part of the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ Pathfinder Food Enterprise Zone’ initiative. It occupies a 19.9ha site to the north of the A64 and to the west of the A169, adjacent to the Eden Camp Museum at Edenhouse Road, Old Malton. The site already has an outline planning permission for a new livestock market, agricultural business centre and business park under planning application 14/00426/MOUTE.

The purpose of the LDO is to simplify the planning process within the FEZ. It enables businesses and organisations that would support the objectives of the FEZ to develop facilities at the site without the need for planning permission but subject to a number of conditions set out within this LDO. Development proposals that do not conform with the LDO or that cannot satisfy the conditions of the LDO will require planning permission in the usual way.

This LDO comprises:

  • a statement of reasons for granting planning permission;
  • the Local Development Order setting out the terms of the planning permission;
  • guidance on process and procedures, including the prior notification process; and
  • a Design Code which sets out more detailed requirements in terms of the form and appearance of the development permitted by the LDO.

The District Council has screened the LDO proposals as required by the Town and Country Planning (Environmental Impact Assessment) Regulations 2011 (as amended in 2015). It has determined that the proposals fall within Schedule 2 of the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) regulations and that the LDO is EIA development.

As such, an Environmental Statement has been prepared in accordance with Regulation 29 of the EIA regulations. The Environmental Statement accompanies the LDO and has informed its preparation.

This LDO has been prepared to support the development of the Malton FEZ, to attract new investment and employment opportunities to Ryedale and to assist in the delivery of the objectives of the York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Enterprise Partnership.

The above documents are available below and a paper copy can also be viewed at the Council’s offices (Ryedale House, Old Malton Road, Malton, YO17 7HH) during normal office hours (Monday to Friday 9am – 4pm).

Representations on the LDO consultation documents must be received by the Council at the above address, or emailed to , by 5pm on the 25 November 2016.

Please note that all replies will be considered public documents, and will be available for inspection on the Council’s website.
