Planning application responses sent to HBC:

18/00911/FUL Erection of single storey extension Orchard House, Hammerton Close for Mr R Kelly:  NO OBJECTIONS

18/01031/REM Reserved matters considered under outline planning permission for 2 dwellings Skipbridge House, York Rd. for Mr K. Merrision. NO OBJECTIONS but the PC wish to make safeguards as follows:

Kirk Hammerton Parish Council acknowledges that conditions and safeguards from the previous application appear to have been met and only wish to reiterate “point 3” of their original comments. Namely:

The area identified for development is relatively small compared to the area of spare land available. If the application had been for more houses, there would have been a need to include some affordable housing. If permission should be given for two properties at this time, the PC would wish to seek safeguards if a further development is proposed later, so that the affordable housing element is not avoided by doing 2 x applications.
