Joint Structure Plan for Kingston Upon Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire

The Joint Structure Plan was adopted on 29 June 2005.

The Joint Structure Plan (JSP) sets the framework for the development and use of land up to 2016 in the combined area of Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire. The plan includes policies on the general location of land for new homes, businesses, shops and leisure facilities. It takes the form of an overall strategy and is not site specific. It also gives guidance on encouraging more sustainable forms of movement (for both people and goods), protecting the natural and build environment, respecting and improving the character of the area and managing the risk from flooding and coastal erosion. The JSP is part of our Development Plan, used to determine planning applications.

A number of policies within the Joint Structure Plan have expired. Those that remain are called 'saved' policies. The requirement to do this was set out in the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act (2004). The Government issued a Direction which lists those policies from the Joint Structure Plan that are ‘saved’ beyond 28 June 2008. Any policies not listed in the Direction (the letters below) have now expired.
