Applications Submitted For Large Residential Development In North Beverley

Planning applications have been submitted for two proposed housing developments in the North of near to Road and also on .

Back in July of this year around 150 residents’ (there are 6000 in the Molescroft parish) turned out as a show of force at a meeting to voice their concerns over plans to build new homes on what is widely regarded as green belt land.

In letter circulated before by the they urged residents to go online and start looking at the planning applications and associated documents and prepare any objections residents may have.

These objections will then need to be sent back to the by January 5th 2012, a time scale the is hoping to lobby the to extend.

With the need for new homes not just in the East Riding but also throughout the UK sites like , land which is locked between two roads start to become the obvious choice for developers seeking sites for new homes.

New homes would put additional pressures on local services and possible increase on the local roads. During the meeting in July the added pressure on schools was brought up though quickly dismissed by weak argument given the number of students who already travel into to local attend schools.

It is not just new homes that come with these proposed developments.

Like it or not , as other towns up and down the country, needs new homes to house an ever growing and aging population. There are not many sites in where homes can be built without situating them too far from the centre and away from the facilities we all use and need on a daily basis.

The however is determined to show why building homes on the two proposed sites will have a negative impact on the local community and environment. Their web site shows the impact the floods had on the area and the sheer volume of that already uses .

  1. The reference to weak argument in respect of School capacities was part of a discussion at the Public Meeting which referred to the need to have strong evidence to back up any objections. As an example Molescroft Primary School has children from surrounding parishes which means schools in those villages could be under threat owing to lack of numbers and local children cannot attend their nearest school which seems unfair. This statement was made without prejudice or indicating a pro or anti stance in relation to the proposed development. The PC has not considered the application yet.
