Parish councillors are concerned that two proposed major housing developments in Stamford Bridge will dramatically increase traffic in the village.
Plans to build 120 new houses on land at the northern edge of Stamford Bridge, north east of 6 St Edmunds, have moved a step closer to receiving the green light. An application for outline planning permission went before East Riding Council’s planning committee recently and was deferred for the completion of a Section 106 agreement to secure the payment of a sum for off-site outdoor play space.
But after this has been completed, the council’s director of planning and economic regeneration, Alan Menzies, will be authorised to approve the application subject to a number of conditions.
There are also plans to build 200 houses in Stamford Bridge, on land south of Roman Road. Both of these developments have been met with concern from Stamford Bridge Parish Council. Chairman Chris Kealey said: “We think they will put too much pressure on services, such as the surgery and sewage system, and the roads in Stamford Bridge. Mr Kealey added that the parish council are “disappointed” with East Riding Council’s decision regarding the application for 120 houses. Gladman Developments, which submitted the application, declined to comment when approached by the Pocklington Post.
