Prior to outline planning being granted for a new prison at Full Sutton in 2019, senior officials from the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) met residents to hear their concerns alongside a pre-application public consultation, where comments on the plans could be submitted for consideration. Since outline planning was granted, further community consultation took place this year for the construction of a new ditch, and most recently for the Reserved Matters Application. The MoJ regularly meets councillors and parish councillors on a virtual basis, but has been unable to hold face-to-face events in June as planned due to COVID restrictions being extended. We plan to carry out some in person consultations when these restrictions ease.
