The Beverley Plan already provides provision for 2,400 dwellings within the Woodmansey Ward and the Southern Relief Road is the accepted boundary.
Councillor Peacock has already responded to many e-mails confirming he will oppose this proposal on the grounds it is outside the plan and this is quite clearly a rural Greenfield site.
Councillor Dominic Peacock said:
“Not only have I had e-mails regarding this, I have also been approached by residents in the street who are upset at the very proposal and wondering why this is happening when so many houses have been approved in the Beverley Plan.”
“I wish to reiterate, as far as I am concerned this is another kite flying exercise by a developer for land outside the Plan. Not only are we opposed to this but we are hoping that the East Riding of Yorkshire Council Planning Committee will be as well”
Developers are keen to build new homes in Beverley and capitalise on the popularity of the area, something Cllr David Elvidge was quick to point out, he said;
“This is not the first time we have had to deal with an out of plan proposal; many residents will remember a proposal to demolish Longcroft School which caused so much outrage.”
“It took a great deal of effort to convince people this was not a Council proposal but that of a private developer and we all opposed that as Beverley Councillors”.
Spawforths are keen to add a further 500 new homes into the plans something locals are not kewen. Cllr Kerri Harrold has also voiced her concerns she said;
“I was able to attend the consultation exercise at Keldmarsh Primary School on behalf of the Ward Councillors and I understand residents anger and frustration in the lack of engagement by the proposed developers agent as I got nowhere with them as well”.
