LETTER: Now committee must reject Bog scheme

I read with interest the article regarding Tynedale Roadstone Ltd, who had applied to build an Asphalt Plant on Hessay Industrial Estate (Plan for plant as tall as five buses refused, January 28).

The application was rejected by City of York Council’s planning committee as the land was within an existing green belt area.

I hope that the planning committee will also reject the application to build 515 homes between Moor Lane and Askham Bog, as the land in question there is also located within an existing green belt area.
