East Riding of Yorkshire Council is consulting on a Land to the North of Bridlington Draft Masterplan Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), from Monday, 27 March to Monday, 8 May. Comments on the draft masterplan should be received on or before Monday, 8 May 2017.

SPDs provide more detailed advice or guidance on the application of policies in the East Riding Local Plan. The local plan provides for the amount, location and type of development in the East Riding until the year 2029.

The draft masterplan has been prepared to guide the development of housing allocations BRID-A and BRID-B in the local plan. In total, these allocate land to provide for around 1,459 new homes.

Important issues on which the masterplan provides further guidance, include:

• the provision of a link road through the site
• improving foot, cycle, and public transport access
• landscaping and integration of development with the Yorkshire Wolds
• maintaining important panoramic viewpoints towards the town and the sea
• the provision of public open space, including children's play areas and playing pitches
• housing mix and
