Public Consultation: Have Your Say
We have been asked by York Housing Association to prepare a planning application for the construction of 8 additional dwellings on land adjacent to Outgang Lane, Pickering and welcome your comments prior to submitting a planning application. The proposals would expand the approved development for 12 dwellings on land to the south of Hugden Close, which was granted planning permission last year. This would result in the development of 20 dwellings overall.
The land subject to the additional houses already has planning permission for the erection of 4 business units which would be not be developed should planning permission be granted for the additional 8 dwellings.
The vision is to deliver a good quality residential development which would add to the range of housing in the area and contribute towards local housing needs. When taken together with the approved development, the scheme would provide the following breakdown of dwellings:
- 1 bed (2 person) apartments – 4 units
- 2 bed (4 person) dwellings – 9 units
- 3 bed (5 person) dwellings – 7 units
Most of the dwellings would be 2 and 3 bed units with a limited number of 1 bed apartments which would be available to local people in housing need via a range of tenures. The majority of dwellings would be semi-detached properties although three of the units would be joined to form a short terrace. The proposed dwellings have been designed to reflect the character and scale of existing properties in the local area, with vehicular access from Outgang Lane in a position which is consistent with the approved development scheme.
The proposals include new landscaping within the site including new tree planting and new landscaped earth bunds adjacent to the southern site boundary with the Express Coachworks site. A 2.4 metre high perimeter close boarded fence is proposed to this boundary to provide improved separation with the Coachworks site. The site layout also includes the retention of part of the site as a habitat area to compensate for any impact on protected species.

Before we submit a planning application to the Council, we would welcome your comments on the development. These comments might concern the principle of development, design matters (such as access, external appearance, scale, landscaping and layout) and any other technical matters you’d like to bring to our attention.
When should I provide my comments?
We would like to receive your comments as soon as possible but before Tuesday 31st March 2020. This will allow sufficient time for us to consider your comments before finalising the planning application.
What Happens Next?
All comments we receive will be carefully considered and a Consultation Statement will be submitted to accompany the planning application which provides details of all comments received and explain any design changes made in response to the consultation. Following the receipt of a planning application, Ryedale District Council will carry out its own consultation exercise.
