PLANNING ideas for new private housing in north Bridlington are to go to a public consultation.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council earmarked the 43 acre greenfield site north of Easton Road and west of New Pasture Lane Estate for housing development in 1997.
Now it has drawn up a masterplan for its development covering the possible design and types of housing, the layout of roads and of green spaces.
The proposals are now up for public consultation, and next Tuesday, June 14, between 4pm and 8pm at New Pasture Lane Primary School people can take a look and comment on proposals.
Members of the team working on the masterplan will be available to answer questions.
The council say public feedback on their ideas will be used to help refine the document into a final masterplan, which will then be adopted as planning guidance.
The final plan will be used by private sector developers and the council when considering future proposals for the site.
The plan does not include non-residential uses such as shops, or schools.
A new junction is proposed on the A165 Scarborough Road for vehicles and pedestrians together with improvements along this part of the main road.
Almost 20% of the total site area is designated as public or private open space, more than normal in a standard housing development.
Housing would be a mix of “quality” traditional family homes, terraces, semi-detached and detached, in two and three storeys, and the development would include required percentage of affordable housing which would be scattered across the site.
it will be up to a private developer to bring forward any housing scheme and the site is not earmarked for any of the new council homes currently being developed across the region and in Bridlington.
When it could be a reality depends on the market but whatever proposals a future developer comes up with would be subject to the usual planning procedures.
The consultation period will end on July 1 and up to that time copies of the draft masterplan and supporting documents can be seen at Bridlington Central Library, Bridlington North Library, Bridlington Customer Service Centre, and online at www.eastriding.gov.uk/corp-docs/forwardplanning/html/dbriefs.html
Any completed questionnaires, letters or emails about the masterplan should be sent to: East Riding of Yorkshire Council, Forward Planning Unit, County Hall, Beverley, HU17 9BA or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
