Consultation starts on Hulls Local Plan - 09/10/15
Hull City Council is this week opening a six-week public consultation on its new Hull Local Plan. This will identify sites for different uses and set out policies that will be used to determine planning applications.

The council wants to engage with city residents and businesses during the production of the plan to ensure that it meets the changing needs and aspirations of the city.

The 300 page Local Plan consultation document is currently at the Preferred Options stage, the second stage of its production.

We are running a six-week public consultation starting on Monday 12 October - Monday 23 November before moving onto the next stage of production.

As part of the consultation, the following events will take place:

  • Drop-in session on Tuesday 20 October at Hull History Centre, 10am - 12.30pm
  • Drop-in session on Thursday 22 October at Hull History Centre, 2pm to 4.30pm
  • Drop-in session on Thursday 22 October at Hull Central Library, 5pm - 7.30pm
  • Local Plan Forum on Thursday 5 November at the Guildhall, 10am - 12.30pm

    Councillor Martin Mancey, Portfolio Holder for Energy City, said:

    ""Being UK City of Culture 2017 confirms that Hull is a great place with lots of potential. The Local Plan is important to ensure it meets the needs and aspirations of the city for the next 15 years.

    ""The right development in the right places will help Hull grow in stature and ensure its long-term success.""

    Alex Codd, City Planning Manager, said:

    ""We are pleased to present the Preferred Options version of the Local Plan. Planning is about making the built environment better.

    ""We would encourage residents and businesses in Hull take this chance to make sure the plan meets their needs.""

    The Plan will be finalised next year and submitted to the Government Inspector for it to be publicly examined before the council can adopt it.

    Consultation materials and response forms are available from:
