Your Driffield.  Your Future

Driffield is a great place to live, work and visit but we want to make it even better.


Commonplace is an engagement website that has been launched for Driffield.  It’s a community space to share ideas and opinions to keep Driffield moving forward.  By working together with residents and local businesses we can support a vibrant and thriving town that better meets the needs of the community and attracts businesses, customers and visitors.

First Round of Surveys – May 2021 (NOW CLOSED)

This infographic provides a summary of the key findings from the first phase of engagement. Thank you to everybody that has engaged with Driffield Commonplace to date.

The first phase of engagement has now closed and the results will be shared soon. The deadline was extended again until 25 July as we continued to receive responses from the local community on current project proposals.

The Local Growth team at East Riding of Yorkshire Council are working with Driffield Town Council to analyse these results and use this information to shape the next stage of these projects. Survey results and updates on town centre activity will follow in August.

We are also developing a heatmap to capture your views on where and how you think improvements could be made to walking and cycling routes in Driffield town centre and the surrounding area. This is in response to the importance respondents have place on a better town centre environment, parks and public spaces that is more pedestrian friendly.

Thank you to everybody that has engaged with Driffield Commonplace so far. Since it was launched in May, the platform has received over 1,900 unique visitors with almost 800 contributions.
