York and Selby Local Plans:


Both City of York Council, and Selby District Council are in the process of finalising new Local Plans. A Local Plan is a statement of planning strategy and vision for the area, which amongst other things outlines areas for development of new housing.

Both local plans potentially impact upon Escrick:

  • The draft York plan previously proposing development on land immediately to the North of the village. This land has however been removed from the updated draft published in June 2016.
  • The Selby plan expected to include other locations around the village in line with Escrick's status as a Designated Service Village. Albeit the proposed allocation of new houses to Escrick is modest.

Additionally Escrick Parish Council are producing a Neighbourhood Development Plan which will provide more local guidance to planning decisions: See our NDP pages.
