DETAILED plans for 80 new homes to be built on Bootham Crescent have been revealed.

A planning application says 64 market-value houses and 16 affordable homes will be built on the 4.25 acre site following the demolition of the existing stadium buildings.

The three routes into the development will be from Grosvenor Road.

But documents say that during the consultation residents raised concerns about traffic, parking and how the scheme will reflect the site’s history.

A report says the development will not have a severe impact on neighbouring roads and, although there is a high demand for parking in the area, each home will have at least one space.

It adds: “A number of residents and regular attendees of the Bootham Crescent ground have commented on the historical importance of the site and would like to know how and if the development will seek to reflect its historical importance.

“Persimmon Homes understand that residents have attached value to the history of the ground. They are considering suggestions on how the history of ground can be represented.”

The scheme includes homes with between one and four bedrooms and there are also plans for ground-floor apartments for elderly and disabled people.

A total of 65 homes were originally planned for the site but this has been increased to 80.

Developers expect the scheme to bring more than £6 million into the city’s economy.

There will also be an open space along the western edge of the site where a children’s playground could be installed and which could link the site with the neighbouring Duncombe Barracks, which is set to be redeveloped by the council.

The club has been based at Bootham Crescent for the last 87 years and stadium development director Ian McAndrew said earlier this month that leaving the ground will be “undoubtedly emotional”.
