A small part of Southern Ryedale is in the York Green Belt.
The Local Authorities across York, North Yorkshire, East Riding and Hull (YNYERH) have recognised the need to develop a broad framework. They’ve set out to agree how sustainable growth could be facilitated across the sub region over the medium to longer term. Looking towards 2050 and beyond.
The Spatial Framework is a non-statutory document that outlines the vision and priorities for growth and the overall spatial strategy for the area.
To find out how this area of Ryedale will be developed and used, you can read the Yorkshire and Humber Regional Spatial Strategy.
What’s the vision for this?
The aim is to have connected, distinctive and thriving towns and cities that will help drive growth and support a successful, sustainable future for current and future generations. Whether living in a city, market town or in the countryside we want to support and deliver a better quality of life for people in the YNYERH area – through our approach to growth and infrastructure planning.
Three priorities have been identified: Digital, Environment and Transport.
- Support better infrastructure delivery with the achievement of greater levels of sustainable economic growth
- Provide a stronger case for investment, helping to make the spatial case for external funding for infrastructure investment where this is required to support growth.
- Demonstrate more proactive collaboration across all the partner Local Authorities. This will enable them to work more effectively and efficiently in preparing and delivering their Local Plans. Plus, they’ll be able to provide the market with more confidence to invest and grow.
