Good turnout for Wilberforce Trust drop-in session

Over 40 local residents attended the drop-in session arranged by the Wilberforce Trust on 6 July at St Leonard’s Hospice.

The Wilberforce Trust plans to build 30 flats for its tenants on land it owns to the north of The Grove, off Tadcaster Road. The Trust is a York-based charity that provides specialist housing and support for people with visual impairments, sensory impairments and other disabilities.

It is anticipated that a planning application will be submitted later this month, with the aim for building work to start in Spring 2018 and completion in mid to late 2019.

Weed spraying gets underway

Due to very good recent growing conditions, council officers have decided to bring forward by one week the second application of herbicide to control weeds along kerb lines, footpaths and back lanes. So the spraying started on Monday 3rd July, rather than 10th July as had been planned.


Over the coming weeks we will monitor the impact of the spraying and highlight any areas that may have been missed.

Dementia activity sessions get underway

A Woodthorpe-based charity is to run themed activity sessions for people living with dementia. The first session, on the theme of ‘A day at the seaside’, is on Thursday 6 July from 1.30pm to 3.30pm at St James the Deacon church hall on Sherringham Drive – see poster below for details.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dementia Yorkshire has received a grant from the Dringhouses & Woodthorpe ward committee to help support these monthly sessions. We wish them every success.

Three more homes planned for Mayfield Grove

The planning committee is being recommended to approve the construction of 3 homes on a site in Mayfield Grove. A similar application earlier in the year was deferred pending receipt of a bat study.

That study has now been provided.

If approved at a meeting taking place on 6th July, the houses would replace an existing bungalow located towards the front of the site with its main garden to the rear.

There would be a semi-detached pair of 4 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.

The local planning panel had criticised the plans saying that they represent an over development of the area.

Residents invited to have their say on Wilberforce Trust development proposals

Local residents are invited to attend a drop-in session to have their say on proposals by the Wilberforce Trust to build 30 flats for its tenants on land it owns to the north of The Grove, off Tadcaster Road.

The proposals, which include a social/community hub for tenants and offices for the charity, will be on display at the Sunflower Centre at St Leonard’s Hospice on Thursday 6th July from 4.30pm to 8pm. A Wilberforce Trust leaflet (copied below) is being delivered to local homes to publicise the drop-in session.


The Wilberforce Trust is a York-based charity that provides specialist housing and support for people with visual impairments, sensory impairments and other disabilities. Its website can be viewed at www.wilberforcetrust.org.uk

In the most recent draft Local Plan, this piece of land had been provisionally allocated for residential extra care facilities in association with the Wilberforce Trust.
