HARROGATE CONSULTATION DAY – TUESDAY 29 NOVEMBER 2PM-7PM GREEN HAMMERTON VILLAGE HALL
New Settlement Options
In order to meet the need for new homes in the most sustainable locations the majority of new housing and employment growth is proposed in the district’s main settlements. However, there are insufficient suitable and available sites in the main settlements or in other settlements included in the settlement hierarchy to meet this need in full. Therefore, a new settlement is being proposed which will help to meet the need within the plan period and beyond. For the purposes of this consultation the council is identifying two options for a potential new settlement These are:
- land at Flaxby, adjacent to the A59/A1(M):The site currently consists of a golf course and is located on the corner of the A59 and A1. York Road which runs through the village of Flaxby dissects the northern part of the site. Small areas of woodland and water associated with the golf course are scattered throughout the site. A substantial area of woodland extends into the site on the southern boundary which is located across the A59. A bund separating the site from the A1 runs along the eastern boundary of the site. Views of Allerton Park Registered Park and Garden can be seen from the site.
- land in the Hammerton area, Green Hammerton/Kirk Hammerton/Cattal:A large site that includes land between the adjacent villages of Kirk Hammerton and Green Hammerton. It lies to the north of the railway line and either side of the A59 which runs east/west through the centre of the site. From the east the land rises to a high point west of Kirk Hammerton Lane. The site contains many fields which have hedgerow boundaries and trees. There is structure planting along the A59 and some trees along the railway line. Within the site are a number of residential properties and farms as well as a large nursery
The council has undertaken a significant amount of work already on infrastructure provision. In particular the work to date has indicated that development at either of these locations will have an impact on Junction 47 of the A1(M) and further work is needed to understand how this impact will be mitigated. There is also a need further work to be undertaken on infrastructure provision and site deliverability in order that the council can determine the preferred approach to be included in the Publication Draft Local Plan. During the consultation, therefore, the council will be seeking views on both options. However, the final version of the plan will only include one new settlement. The evidence base to support the plan does not indicate the need for two new settlements.
