Stainsby Country Park and Masterplan

The vision for Stainsby is a sustainable, mixed, and balanced community set within an outstanding and engaging landscape. This includes the creation of a new public country park.

The character of the development will be defined by the landscape setting and the importance of nature. It will enhance and extend existing habitats, while also creating a wide range of new habitats for the benefit of people and wildlife. It will offer a net gain in biodiversity, climate change resilience, and ecosystem services to the wider environment.


We are now consulting on the Stainsby Country Park and Masterplan. All the consultation documents can be found below in the ‘Consultation supporting documents’ section.

The Masterplan sets out a vision for how we would like to deliver Policy H21 of the Housing Local Plan and the Country Park which links into the wider green space network. It explains how we’ll achieve our vision of a sustainable, mixed, and balanced community and new Country Park, all set within an outstanding landscape.

The Masterplan takes into account the comments we received from previous consultations. 

How did we respond to the previous consultations?

  • We listened to what you said and the Masterplan no longer proposes housing development on Mandale Meadow
  • We commissioned independent specialist consultants to assess the potential road alignments - the route included in the Masterplan provides the necessary infrastructure whilst minimising the impact on the Meadow
  • We have sought to achieve a more environmentally friendly development with the introduction of “One Planet Living” principles within the Masterplan
  • We are now undertaking a further consultation on the Masterplan

Take part

The Stainsby Country Park & Masterplan consultation has now ended. Responses will be presented to the council's Executive soon.
