HBC Planning Portal

Planning applications still under consideration by KHPC:

17/03325/REM – Outline permission for the erection of 1 dwelling Casa Mia, York Road, YO26 8DH for Mr and Mrs Smith

A) The PC has no objections provided highways have no issues with the entrance on to A59


17/03072/FUL – Demolition of agricultural buildings and conversion of agricultural buildings into 3 dwellings…and 2 double garages, Westfield Farm, YO26 8DU for Mrs Margaret Pick.

B) The PC objects on the following grounds:

  1. Loss of agricultural buildings.
  2. Conversion and new build are outside the permitted development in the village and well beyond the normal building line.
  3. Many of the existing buildings are being demolished as opposed to being converted and the character of the traditional Fold Yard risks being lost.
  4. Item 24 – The site CAN be seen from a public road, footpath, bridleway or other public land

If, however, HBC is minded to approve this development, there should be a limit to no further development on this plot.

C – The PC does not object nor support the application but wishes to make comments or seek safeguards as follows:

  1. Clarity is needed regarding access to the rear of the properties and storage of refuse wheelie bins.

  3. Access to the rear is on a shared track with possible access limitations to the playing field.
