Controversial Tadcaster Road planning application approved

A controversial planning application to demolish two homes on Tadcaster Road and shoehorn 11 properties onto the site was approved by members of City of York Council’s Area Planning Sub Committee on 9 November.


The plans attracted overwhelming opposition from local residents and ward councillors, but officers recommended approval. Cllr Ann Reid spoke at the meeting to highlight the reasons why the application should be refused, one of which was the impact of adding another junction into what is already a very busy stretch of road.

Six members of the committee supported the recommendation to approve the application and four were opposed, so the application was approved. It was agreed however to add as a condition for approval that the narrow track connecting the site to Mayfield Grove should be restricted to pedestrian and cycle use only.

Controversial Tadcaster Road planning application recommended for approval

An application to build 11 homes on land behind 26 Tadcaster Road has been recommended for approval by Council officials.

The recommendation comes despite objections from local Councillor Ann Reid, members of the local planning panel and the Conservation Area Panel.. The National Trust – which runs the Goddards historic house opposite the site entrance – have also objected as have many local residents.

The application seeks permission for the erection of 11 dwellings following the demolition of an existing two storey dwelling at 26 Tadcaster Road and a single storey dwelling located centrally within the site and identified as being 9a Mayfield Grove.

The site comprises an area of approximately 0.5ha. Thirteen lock up garages with a large area of harstanding are also  present within the site.

The site is bounded to the north by the rear gardens of Mayfield Grove, to the east by Tadcaster Road, to the south and west by the car park of the public house and the rear gardens of St Helens Road. Access to the site would be where number 26 Tadcaster Road currently stands.

The scheme proposes two rows of 3 two storey three-bed terraced houses with rooms within the roof, two 4 bedroom two storey dwellings, two 3 bedroom dormer bungalows and one 1 bedroom two storey dwelling.

Two off street parkingspaces would be provided for each dwelling with no allocated visitor spaces.

Most of the objections relate to traffic and parking issues.

The application will be determined by the planning sub committee when it meets on 9th November.

Residents can register to speak at the meeting if they wish.

More consultation on Local Plan

Just when you thought that the Council had finally decided on a Local Plan that would take York into the 2030’s, the authority has launched another public consultation.

The last consultation  took place in the spring.

The Council says that”homes  in the city will receive a special edition of the Our City publication over the next two weeks, which explains the plan and how to have your say.

The full version of the Local Plan pre-publication draft – and comment forms which can be sent freepost –  is available to view online at www.york.gov.uk/localplan,  in all the city’s libraries and the council’s reception at west offices.

Residents are also invited to one of eight special consultation events, while additional information will also be available at all ward committees which meet during the consultation period.

You can also get involved via twitter @CityofYork or facebook.com/cityofyork, using the hashtag #YorkLocalPlan

There wil be a public consultation event on Monday 16 October at Acomb Explore Library, Acomb (3-7.30pm)

Additional information will also be provided at the ward committee meeting (Dringhouses & Woodthorpe joint with Westfield) – Tuesday 26 September  York & District Indoor Bowls Club, 302 Thanet Road, Dringhouses, York, YO24 2NW 6.30-8pm)

The published plans still involve development of the Lowfields playing field, so it is important that residents record their objections to any proposals that they disagree with

There is expect to be an “examination in public” by an independent inspector early next year.
