A masterplan for Bridlington’s future, which will see almost 1,500 new homes built to the north of the town, will be made public on Monday.

Residents will then have six weeks to have their say on the plans, which will see a new link road built connecting Scarborough Road and Bempton Lane.

There will also be a drop-in session when local people can speak to a planning officer about the documents by attending a drop-in session on Wednesday, April 12, from 2pm to 7pm, at Bridlington North Library in Martongate,

The masterplan looks at issues including:

○ improving footways, cycle paths, 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

○ design, including appropriate densities, layout, and materials.

From Monday, the document can be downloaded from East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s website www.eastriding.gov.uk/spd.

Printed copies will be available to read at Bridlington’s two libraries and the customer service centre at the town hall.

Replies can be emailed to forward.planning@eastriding.gov.uk or posted to Forward Planning, East Riding of Yorkshire Council, County Hall, Cross Street, Beverley, HU17 9BA, before Monday, May 8.

All responses to the consultation will be publically available to view on the website.
