The Council has now adopted an Instalment Policy (1 September 2016). This sets out the payment framework for paying CIL Liability operational from 6 September 2016. This Policy can be viewed at the bottom of this page.
What is the Community Infrastructure Levy?
The Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) is a tariff-based fixed charge which is applied to the net internal floor space of a development (m2). The proposed charge is defined in two ways, by use of the intended development, and by the location (and being over 100 m2 in the first instance if non-residential). The only uses that are subject to the proposed charge are:
- Private market houses (excluding apartments and self-builds) with a proposed charging Schedule of a low value area (at £45 per m2) and all other area charge of £85 per m2
- Super markets (£120 per m2); and
- Retail warehouses (£60 per m2).
This is available to view in the Charging Schedule, which also provides more detail on the precise operation of the charge as there are some exemptions. No other developments are subject to CIL charging by Ryedale District Council.
Date of approval for use
Members of Ryedale Council approved use of Charging Schedule on the Thursday, 14 January at a meeting of Extraordinary Full Council. The date for commencement of the Charging Schedule is the Tuesday, 1 March 2016.
This will cover any relevant application that is determined from the date Council resolves to implement CIL (1 March 2016). Therefore, it is important that both land owners and developers are aware of the implications of the CIL charge because it is a non-negotiable, fixed charge. Accordingly it will be necessary to either establish that the scheme is exempt, or factor this into the viability assessment as a fixed element of cost.
Fees required for discharge of conditions
A fee will be required for all requests for approval of details to discharge conditions attached to planning permissions and requests for confirmation that conditions have been complied with, regardless of when permission was granted.
For further information please see Discharging Planning Conditions
Requests to discharge conditions should be made on the standard forms entitled "Application for Approval of Details Reserved by Condition", which can be found under the 'Other Forms' section of this page.

1APP Planning Application form submission
Since 6 April 2008 the National Standard Planning Application form is the only legal method of submitting a planning and related application for all types of consent except for Minerals and Building Control.
To submit an application on-line using 1APP please go to the Planning Portal website.
There is still the option to complete and submit paper copies of an application form but we encourage online applications as there are distinct advantages to be gained by completing the form online and applying electronically such as:
- No printing and postage costs
- 24 hours a day service
- Ability to create an electronic location plan
- Add any attachments to your submission
- Calculate the fee online
Also the intelligent nature of the forms should mean it is quicker and easier for applicants to complete the forms online because they will only be asked questions which are relevant to their application.
The online service uses Adobe forms. Plans and drawings submitted electronically through the Portal have the measuring facility within pdfs enabled.
The aim is to encourage new ways of working within the planning service which will support an almost paperless system.
The forms are available below.
The council welcomes and encourages pre-application discussions on development proposals. However, this service takes up a significant proportion of planning officers' time and since 1 April 2011 charges have applied in certain cases (check the guidance notes below). The Local Government Act 2003 permits councils to operate such a scheme of charging in order to reduce the burden on taxpayers, it has been decided to introduce fees for written advice and meetings where planning advice is sought to recoup the costs in part.
The benefits of obtaining pre-application planning advice include the following:
- Establish a degree of certainty to developers over information in the application and whether planning permission is likely to be granted
- Understanding how national and local policies will be applied to development and addressing whether proposals may need to be amended to comply with these policies
- Assisting in the preparation of proposals before formal submission, which, if the advice is followed, should reduce any unexpected delays and be more likely to result in a positive outcome
- Enhance officer responses in terms of quality and timeliness
- Indicating those proposals that are completely unacceptable, so saving the cost of pursuing a formal application
- Reducing the time spent by professional advisors in working up a proposal
- Identify if specialist input will be required
- This advice is given without prejudice to the final recommendation on the proposal, which will be made in the light of consultation responses and detailed consideration of the application.
A guidance note and form have been prepared which are available below. This sets out the levels of charges which are proportionate to the scale of development. It also clarifies those circumstances in which they would be levied. Both documents listed below are available at the bottom of this page.
- Pre-Application Planning Advice Guidance Notes
- Pre-Application Planning Advice Request Form
If you are making a request for pre-application planning advice which would be subject to the charges, then the request form should be completed and submitted to the Council together with the appropriate fee and other information indicated in the guidance notes.
Development Control Process
Development Control is the process that regulates the development and use of land. This includes the construction of new buildings, the extension of existing ones and the change of use of buildings or land to another use.
Development such as new houses, industrial buildings and shops is important for sustaining the economic success of the district, but it is also important that we protect and improve the quality of the environment, not only in our towns and villages, but also in our outstanding countryside.
Ryedale District Council has one Area Planning Committee that meets every four weeks to make decisions on planning applications and consider whether to take action against unauthorised development. The Planning Committee is advised by the Development Control Team: professional planners who carefully assess proposals against local and national planning policies. For Planning Committee dates and agendas please see our Committee Diary.
Our Planning Committee Procedures form is available at the bottom of this page.
Although the Planning Committee decides the major applications and those which attract significant objections, the power to deal with most minor applications has been given to the Head of Planning and Housing. For further information on what applications are delegated please see our Scheme of Delegation (at the bottom of this page).
Ryedale District Council's Development Control Service is committed to providing an excellent service for all of its users. Accordingly, the link below to the list of standards sets out what level of service you can expect when you submit a planning or other type of application to, or make enquiries of, the Section.

Do I need Planning Permission?
Ryedale District Council is responsible for deciding whether a development - anything from an extension on a house to a new shopping centre - should go ahead in the Ryedale area.
It is your responsibility for seeking planning permission and permission should be granted before any work begins.
You do not always need planning permission. Generally, it is not required for changes to the inside of buildings, or for small alterations to the outside such as the installation of telephone connections and alarm boxes.
Other small changes, for example putting up walls and fences (below a certain height) may not require planning permission.
The most common examples of when you will need to for apply for planning permission are:
- You want to make additions or extensions to a property.
- You want to divide off part of your home for business or commercial use.
- You want to build something which goes against the terms of the original planning permission for your house - for example, putting up fences in front gardens on an "open plan" estate.
- The work you want to do might obstruct the view of road users.
- The work would involve a new or wider access to a trunk or classified road.
If you are unsure whether Planning Permission is required you can complete a Development Enquiry Form and send it to Development Management, Ryedale District Council, Ryedale House, Malton, North Yorkshire, YO17 7HH. We will require a fee of £25 (no VAT). You will receive a written response. Since April 2011 if you require a response from Building Control we will require an additional fee of £10 + VAT.
Section 327A of the 1990 Act specifies that applications not accompanied by a DAS shall not be "entertained". This means that they shall not be validated.
This is particularly important for Outline applications. Any design and access considerations that are crucial to the development must be secured through conditions on the Outline permission, and/or a planning obligation.
Householder applications are not generally covered by the requirement to provide a DAS. But where a householder application lies in a "designated area" (National Park, SSSI, Conservation Area, AONB, World Heritage Site, The Broads) then a DAS is required.
For further information please read Information on Design and Access Statements below
DCLG released a circular in 2006 when the requirements for DAS came into effect this document is attached below.
If you wish to appeal against a planning decision, this guide will explain what you have to do. It will also help you if the council have issued an enforcement notice on land or buildings which you have a legal interest in, and you want to appeal against. Appeals are dealt with by the Planning Inspectorate. For further information see the Planning Portal website appeals page.
Details of appeals can be found on the Planning Register click Next to acknowledge the disclaimers.
You will come to the Simple Search screen where you can select Appeals.

The Ryedale Plan is the Local Plan or 'Development Plan' for Ryedale. It sets out how much new housing, employment and retail development should go where to 2027. It also guides other forms of development as well as protecting key Ryedale assets such as environmental and historic assets. It is be made up of two main parts: the Local Plan Strategy and Local Plan Sites documents. The Local Plan Strategy was adopted in September 2013. The Council is now preparing the Local Plan Sites Document. A specific plan for Helmsley is being produced in conjunction with the North York Moors National Park Authority.
For more information on specific constraints please visit the Ryedale Plan homepage.

What is 1APP?
The National Standard Planning Application Form, or 1APP as it is known, is the latest step in the Government's campaign to streamline the planning system.
To make life easier for applicants the Government is introducing a single set of standard forms for England. Local authorities will not be able to amend the forms.
1APP has supersede all existing planning application forms since April 2008 where it became the only method of applying for planning permission in England.
The form will provide a consistent format and set of questions and help to make the process of applying for planning permission more straightforward for applicants.
The form will be used for most types of planning applications and will help to deliver greater transparency, consistency and efficiency in the planning system.
1APP takes in a wide variety of planning consent procedures, including:
Full planning permission
Outline planning permission, including approval of reserved matters
Listed building consent
Conservation area consent
Tree works (including trees protected by a TPO and trees in a conservation area)
Certificate of lawfulness of existing and proposed use or development
Building Control and Minerals applications are not included in the current implementation of 1APP.
If you are unsure whether Planning Permission is required you can complete a Development Enquiry Form and send it to Development Management, Ryedale District Council, Ryedale House, Malton, North Yorkshire, YO17 7HH. We will require a fee of £25 (no VAT). You will receive a written response. Please note: as from 1st April 2011 if you require a response from Building Control we will require an additional fee of £10 + VAT.
You can make certain types of minor changes to your house without needing to apply for planning permission. These are called "permitted development rights". For further information please visit the Planning Portal website.
