Scarborough Borough Council have commenced a review of the Scarborough Borough Local Plan.
Although the current Local Plan was adopted in July 2017, the Government requires Plans to be updated regularly and this is the first stage of consultation in the review process.
It should be noted that this is intended to be a partial review of the current Local Plan to respond to changes in local and national policy and reflect any evolving local ambitions.
As the first stage of reviewing the Local Plan, this Issues and Options consultation sets the scene for the review and sets out what are considered to be the main issues to be addressed. It focuses on a number of topic areas and welcomes comments on these.
The consultation seeks views on three documents:
- The Issues and Options document;
- The Sustainability Appraisal Scoping Report; and
- The Housing Assessment Methodology.
The consultation period commences on 28 August 2020 and runs through to 6 November 2020 (5pm).
Information on how to access all of the consultation documentation can be found via the Council’s consultation portal at
http://scarborough-consult.objective.co.uk/kse The consultation portal can be used to submit comments.
Under normal circumstances, the Council would undertake a small number of public exhibitions across the Borough at this stage, however, due to the ongoing restrictions associated with the Covid-19 Pandemic we are currently unable to do this. As such, we are keen to ensure we are as accessible as possible to answer any questions or concerns consultees may have. If local residents need to speak to us they can do so by contacting:

Tel: 01723 232323
We will endeavour to respond to any specific queries either by phone call, email or video call if this is possible.
We hope to be able to resume public exhibitions during later consultation stages of the Local Plan review.
