CITY of York Council received more than half a million pounds from property developers between July and September.

A report before the council at a meeting on Thursday looks at planning enforcement cases in the third quarter of 2018, and found 210 new enforcement investigation cases were received by the authority in the three months from July 1 to September 30.

A total of 231 cases were closed, and 574 remained open at the time the report was published.

The council confirmed that no Enforcement Notices had been served on developers within the third quarter of this year, and 45 Section 106 cases - in which the council looks to recover funding promised by developers - were closed.

These completed cases brought the council £626,000 from 21 developments around the city, which will be used towards funding for education, housing, open space and transport around the authority.

However, the report states a total of 111 investigations remain open at time of going to press.

The report will be presented to the area planning sub-committee at a meeting at West Offices on Thursday at 4.30pm.
