St Stephens Closed Churchyard

Following a recent BRAMM inspection, urgent remedial safety work on the headstones at Newport (closed) Churchyard is due to commence on Tuesday 27th July and is estimated to be completed by Friday 13th August 2021 (weather permitting).

There is considerable work for the stonemasons to ensure compliance with BS8415.  A total of 60 headstones have been identified by the inspector as requiring attention. Some of these had been laid flat during the inspection due to safety concerns. The work on the headstones which have been temporarily laid flat will be prioritised.

Newport Parish Council sincerely apologise for any distress that this work may cause, and would seek to re-assure everyone that this is only a temporary measure until the headstones are made safe.

As a Council we would like to assure you that we take our responsibilities very seriously and would not be taking this course of action unless it was absolutely necessary.

East Riding Local Plan Draft Local Plan Update 2021

What is the Local Plan?
The East Riding Local Plan sets out the scale, location and infrastucture requirements of new development for
uses such as housing, employment and open space over the next 15 years.

The Local Plan sets out planning policies for the area and is a key driver in determining planning applications
and development opportunities in the East Riding. The current Local Plan was adopted in 2016.

What is this consultation?
This is a consultation on an update to the adopted East Riding Local Plan, not an entirely new plan.
Therefore a number of policies and site allocations remain largely unchanged.

This is the second stage of the Local Plan Update following the Options consultation and
‘call for sites’ that took place in 2018. This consultation considers the first full draft of a new
East Riding Local Plan. The three consultation documents are:

Draft Strategy Document Update (2021);
Draft Allocations Document Update (2021); and
Draft Policies Map Update (2021);

These consultation documents are available to view on the Draft Local Plan Update consultation
A number of other documents have been published alongside these documents including a
Sustainability Appraisal incorporating site assessments, along with background papers and studies
that form part of the Plan’s evidence base.
