TIME is running out for residents to have their say on the direction of all future development in Hambleton.

The district council is currently preparing a new Local Plan which will set out how much land is needed to accommodate new homes and jobs up to 2035 – and where that land should be.

It considers the need for new homes and jobs alongside associated infrastructure - shops, community facilities, transport, open space, sport and recreation, health and education.

The Plan also looks to protect and enhance the countryside, historic buildings and the unique character of the market towns and villages.

Views have already been sought on the authority’s preferred options for sites which resulted in suggestions for a further 83 alternative development sites and 148 potential greenspaces.

Those sites have now been assessed and recommendations made – and the council now wants views on those too.
