Cloeberry Way Garages the site of new affordable homes?

FOLLOWING THE REJECTION of plans in January to build four new homes at Cloeberry Cloeberry Way Garages PictureWay, Hedon, the East Riding Council has resubmitted its application.

This time the planning application stipulates that only three homes will be built following demolition of the existing two garages.

As previously reported on the Blog the council had planned to build new properties on the Cloeberry Way site as part of its strategy to meet the need for affordable homes across the region. The new homes are part of a £33million programme being carried out by the council to build 275 affordable homes in 2010/11.

The planning application for four homes was rejected last time as unsuitable because it would have resulted in a “cramped and akward form of development” and “an undue sense of enclosure for any potential future occupiers”. The new application will undoubtedly address those issues.

Some local residents however will be concerned about the loss of any car-parking spaces in the Drapers Lane area.

The planning application is available for inspection at the Customer Service Centre at 2, New Road, Hedon during office hours.

  1. The proposal to build 3 houses on Cloeberry Way goes before the Council’s Eastern Area Planning Sub-Committee on Monday 22nd March 2010.

    The recommendation is that the decision is delegated to council officers who have the power to approve the application unless expected consultation responses to the plans and flood risk assessment raise any new matters not already considered by the Council.

    It has been acknowledged that the loss of parking provision could cause inconvenience to local residents. The planning application (i.e. the Council) needs to demonstrate that the loss of parking ia “acceptable” and that adequate provision is available elsewhere.

    Four letters of objection have been received by the Council and a petition containing 15 names and addresses also objected to the proposal.
