Project Overview/ Summary:
Development Plan representations and a planning application were prepared in tandem in order to support the development of a 130 unit housing site on the western edge of York. The supporting reports sought to demonstrate the development would be acceptable with regard to the environmental and amenity considerations. The site is located in the ‘general extent’ of the York Green Belt, and the Green Belt assessment sought to establish the site did not conflict with purposes of the Green Belt, and should not be included within the precise boundaries to be defined by the York Local Plan.
