Greensward Point, Easingwold, North Yorkshire
Our Planning Team in North Yorkshire worked closely with the Local Planning Authority (Hambleton District Council) to secure a planning consent on a site in Easingwold, North Yorkshire ahead of the site’s formal allocation within the Council’s new Local Plan.
The team undertook an extensive period of consultation with the local community, Easingwold Town Council, and other key stakeholders such as Historic England due to a Grade II* Church to the South of the site and Easingwold Community Primary School which was adjacent to the site.
The planning team ensured that the scheme, which was the largest housing development in the Town for several decades was presented to the Council’s Planning Committee with no major objections.
The site delivered tangible benefits for the local community through the provision of two acres of school playing pitches, a new safe and secure school staff car park to overcome persistent car parking pressures at the school, a wildlife enhancement area, and a significant financial contribution towards the future expansion of the school.
