New homes plan is opposed by Easingwold residents

Updated in News

PLANS to build 22 new homes on land in Easingwold have been submitted to Hambleton District Council.

The scheme would see new homes, along with access and public open spaces, built on land to the south of Paddock Rise and West of Oxenby Place in Easingwold by developers Heritage South Ltd and Mugrave Properties.

So far, Easingwold Town Council support the application but have raised "major concerns" about the increase in traffic and drainage of water and sewarage, while North Yorkshire County Council has requested a contribution of almost £75,000 towards new school places which could be brought with the new development.

At least 11 local residents have raised several concerns about the proposals, with objections logged over the an "influx of children and associated noise", blocking current residents' views of the countryside, and the change in the number of dwellings from 10 to 22, which one resident felt was "rather excessive, especially with half being affordable housing".

The plans are recommended for approval by planning officers, providing the development begins within three years, but will go before the council's planning committee at a meeting on Thursday, May 1.

Sounds a miserable old peoples village to live in anyway.People who live in an area for years and then think they have a right to own all the infrastructure should go and live in a crofters cottage in remote Scotland when they can exercise that right. 22 needed homes is not really a major housing estate.
