PLANNING APPLICATIONS SUBMITTED IN YORKSHIRE
Acting on behalf of Richborough Estates, Asteer Planning has submitted two separate planning applications for land at York Road, Market Weighton, East Riding of Yorkshire.
The Outline planning application proposes 120 new homes, including a mix of market and affordable housing, employment, commercial and other community floorspace with associated landscaping, drainage and other infrastructure. The Full planning application proposes a Lidl food store with associated access, car parking, landscaping and other infrastructure.
Both applications will provide retention and enhancement of existing boundary vegetation with ecological connectivity and the provision of public open space with the potential to contribute to the wider provision of the remaining allocation.
The site is allocated in the adopted East Riding Local Plan under two references, Policy MW-B for housing development and Policy MW-F for employment development. The combined site also benefits from draft allocations in the emerging East Riding Local Plan under the same policy references.
Alanna Mahoney, Land and Planning Manager at Richborough Estates, said: “A public consultation event in December 2021 helped shape our plans and we are keen to work with the Council whilst the applications are being determined.
“A special thanks to Asteer Planning, including Alice Routledge and Jon Suckley, as well as the wider consultancy team with the application.”
Alice Routledge, Partner at Asteer Planning, added: “The preparation of these planning applications has been an intricate process, bringing together opportunities for both residential and commercial development. The proposed new scheme will not only create new homes but new jobs, investment and consumer choice. Accessibility to convenience goods at a local level is more important than ever and the new Lidl store will be a great addition to the growing community.”
