A weekly round-up of selected public notices

AN application seeking detailed permission for a controversial housing development near Bedale has been submitted to Hambleton District Council.

The authority has received a “reserved matters” application, considering access, appearance, landscaping, layout and scale, for the major development at Wilbert Farm, on Sandhill Lane, Aiskew, following the outline application for a development of 116 homes being approved last year.

Details on the council’s website show that since Barratt Homes secured permission for the development, the site has been acquired by Taylor Wimpey, which intends to bring the plans forward alongside the neighbouring site, land North East of Ashgrove, at 89 Bedale Road, where a further 85 homes are planned.

A letter from Pegasus Group, on behalf of Taylor Wimpey, states: “As a result of this acquisition, the proposals for both sites are to be revised to allow for the two parcels to be brought forward as one connected, cohesive development. It is intended that the developments will be linked, and access for all the proposed dwellings will come from Bedale Road.”

Four objections have been submitted, voicing fears of extra pressure on amenities in Aiskew, and about the proximity of a proposed play area to existing homes.

Previously, the Wilbert Farm development sparked concern over additional traffic, the “uninspired design” of the proposed homes and sewerage and flooding issues.
