FOLLOWING THE REJECTION of plans in January to build four new homes at Cloeberry Way, 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.
