North Yorkshire Council has issued the following press release which indicates that the removal of the “Heronby” option from the conclusion of the Selby Local Plan will go to the full council on 21st Feb where it is expected to pass. That means that Heronby will be removed from the Selby Local Plan but it will still allow the possibility of Heronby being considered in the new North Yorkshire Local Plan. However, this plan is expected to take at least 5 years to come to fruition.  Our Council is committed to continuing to represent the views of the village by strongly objecting to the development known as Heronby under North Yorkshire’s Local Plan should this transpire as an option.
