Fulford housing plan delayed after concerns

First published in News

A DECISION on plans for 14 new homes in the grounds of a York care home has been delayed following community concerns.

The Royal Masonic Benevolent Institute (RMBI) and Shepherd Homes Ltd want to use part of the Connaught Court site off St Oswald’s Road in Fulford for housing.

Their plans went before City of York Council’s area planning committee last week, but were deferred after Fulford Parish Council and Fulford Friends opposed the scheme.

The objectors said they had fears over the impact of the development on Fulford’s conservation area, flooding, loss of trees and increased traffic.

The council rejected a larger development on the site in 2007 and a subsequent appeal failed.
