Elderly homes plan for former A64 pub at Copmanthorpe
9:12am Wednesday 2nd October 2013 in News
A housing development for elderly people could be built on the site of a former York pub.
Retirement living developer McCarthy & Stone has submitted plans to create 28 “later living apartments” at Top Lane, Copmanthorpe, on land next to the A64 which was previously occupied by the Fox and Hounds pub.
If approved by City of York Council, the scheme would also have gardens and 28 parking spaces, as well as a pedestrian route to the site from Top Lane with the existing access route being moved.
The proposals have been submitted following a local consultation. McCarthy & Stone’s regional managing director, Steve Secker, said: “We are delighted with the amount of support our proposals have received and would like to thank the community for their valuable comments, which have helped shape our final plans.”
The site is currently owned by CFK Developments, who will transfer ownership to McCarthy & Stone if the plans are approved. The pub closed in 2011 after 150 years, despite a campaign to save it, and planning permission was previously granted for it to become 11 homes.
