Bat concerns set to stop Mayfield Grove development

5-mayfield-groveA plan to build 3 additional homes on Mayfield Grove will be considered by the Council’s planning committee when it meets on 5th January 2017.

The application is recommended for refusal

The application seeks full planning permission for the erection of three dwellings on a 0.06ha plot at the eastern end of Mayfield Grove.

The proposed houses would replace an existing bungalow located towards the front of the site at 5 Mayfield Grove with its main garden to the rear. There would be a semi-detached pair of 3 bedroom dwellings at the front of the site on the footprint of the existing bungalow and a single detached 2 bedroom bungalow to the rear.

Vehicle access would be from Mayfield Grove, via newly created parking areas and private driveway to the rear property.

Several objections to the development were received because of concerns about over-development but the key concern is the absence of a bat scoping survey of the existing buildings on the site.

The Committee will also consider several other planning applications

Erection of dwelling following demolition of existing bungalow

Erection of a terrace of 3no. dwellings on land previously used as car park to the south of the existing building

Erection of 1no. dwelling to land to side of 4 Whitby Avenue

Extension to existing building to create additional office accommodation on first and second floors above rear ground floor parking area, including demolition of existing garage

Change of use of dwelling (use class C3) to House in Multiple Occupation (use class C4)

Single storey rear extension

Two storey rear extension, single storey side and rear extensions, hip to gable roof extension and dormer to rear

Terry’s clock tower set to be converted into flats

The York Council is set to approve plan to turn the former Terry’s clock tower into 22 apartments.

terrys-clock-towerThe plan – to be considered on 5th January – also involves providing space for a museum and associated car parking.

It is proposed to convert the building for residential use incorporating 19 one, two and three bedroom apartments within the existing building and a further three within the northern roof top extension (to the boiler house) which would be executed in structural glazing.

The upper clock chamber has been made over by the applicant to provide a museum and viewing space to provide interpretive material in respect of the development of chocolate manufacture at the site. The clock would also be reinstated.

The Clock Tower comprises a substantial brick and art stone detailed, Grade II Listed, structure with an attached two storey boiler house.

It occupies a prominent location within the Terry’s/Racecourse Conservation Area. It formerly acted as a chimney and boiler house to support the manufacture of chocolate and confectionery at the Terry’s site from construction in the 1920s until manufacture ceased in 2006.

Officials say, “The building is on the “Heritage at Risk” register. Unfortunately no commercial or leisure occupier has been found to “save” the building in spite of a long and extensive marketing exercise. The height and configuration of the accommodation, its location within the body of the site, and the cost of essential repair-work have been cited by potential occupiers as reasons for lack of viability for a commercial or mixed use scheme. The over-riding consideration is finding a new use that would sustain the heritage significance of the building”.

“The scheme would rescue this building at risk which is a much valued and prominent York landmark”

Only eight objections to the proposal have been received by the Council although one is from the Civic Trust.

Hotel set to be converted into homes on Mount Vale

Newington Hotel

Newington Hotel

The Newington Hotel on Mount Vale is set to be converted into 7 residential units. The plans, which will be considered by the Council at a meeting on 9th June, include the erection of new town house adjacent to no. 147 and demolition of extensions to rear of hotel with associated works. These include 3 blocks of garages and alterations to car park and driveway to form an access and individual gardens. The plans are recommended for approval.

Nearby a plan to replace a bungalow with a two story house in Hob Moor Terrace is also recommended for approval. There have been objections to this proposal for neighbouring residents who are concerned about privacy issues.

Also set to get the nod are plans to provide a penthouse floor on top of the Hilary House building on St Saviourgate. The former government office block has already been converted into premium apartments and any penthouse is expected to market for a 7 figure sum.

Officials are also backing a plan to extend the Royal York Hotel which would see 45 additional bedrooms provided there.
