Mayfield Grove planning application deferred

At its meeting on 5th January, the council’s Area Planning Committee voted to defer an application to demolish the bungalow at 5 Mayfield Grove and build 3 homes on the site.

The recommendation was for the application to be refused due to concerns that a bat survey needed to be carried out. The Council’s ecologist suggested that an activity survey be carried out in May 2017, therefore the applicant’s agent requested at the meeting that the application be deferred in order to give sufficient time for a bat survey to be carried out.

Speaking at the meeting, Cllr Ashley Mason suggested that parking spaces for the proposed properties were not sufficient, and the height of the proposed dwellings would dominate the surrounding properties. He also highlighted comments from Yorkshire Water over drainage problems in the area.

The committee agreed that the application should be deferred in order to address concerns raised and to allow for a bat survey to be carried out.

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.
