As has been publicised Selby District Council are consulting on the preferred options under their new Local Plan.  That consultation period ends on 12 March 2021 so please do take the time to read those proposals and submit your comment back to the District Council.

The new Local Plan sets-out (amongst other things) where development will take place in the district until 2040. Therefore this is is a once a decade opportunity to influence how and where development takes place in the district.

One of the options in the new Local Plan is for a new settlement between Stillingfleet and Escrick to be known as Heronby. There is now a website setting out more about these plans which can be accessed at:

Please help spread the word to those not online.  Escrick Park Estates have said that if people do not have access to the internet, they can call them on 01904 897456 and they will arrange for information to be posted out.
In due course, Escrick Park Estates hope to be able to make arrangements to meet people face-to-face for a
design-based consultation to discuss ideas and improve their masterplan.  In the meantime, if people have any questions, they can email their project team at
