A site north of Bridlington has been earmarked for the development of 1,400 new homes.

East Riding of Yorkshire Council adopted the Land to the North of Bridlington Masterplan Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) on 12 December 2017.

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

The masterplan has been prepared to guide the development of housing allocations BRID-A and BRID-B, which are identified in the local plan allocations document. These sites are allocated to provide around 1,400 new homes over an area of approximately 56 hectares. This represents one of the key areas of housing growth within the local plan.

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 design, including appropriate densities, layout and materials.

The SPD will be an important material consideration in the determination of planning applications on these sites.
