Revocation of The Regional Strategy for Yorkshire and Humber

This week is the week that The Regional Strategy for Yorkshire and Humber (RSYH) will finally be revoked. 

The first attempt at revoking Regional Strategies took place in July 2010 and was successfully challenged in court by Cala Homes.  An express power to revoke Regional Strategies was subsequently included in the Localism Act 2011.  However the revocation process has been delayed by the carrying out of formal consultation and Strategic Environmental Assessment in relation to the proposed revocation of each Regional Strategy.

RSYH will be revoked on Friday 22nd February 2013 with the exception of specific policies relating to the York Green Belt.  RSYH is the second Regional Strategy to be revoked following the revocation of the East of England Regional Strategy on 3rd January 2013.
