Planners at East Riding Council have deferred a decision on plans to build 192 new homes in Stamford Bridge.

Barratt Developments has submitted a planning application for the proposed development, at land south of Roman Road, adjacent to Burtonfields Barns.

The application went before East Riding Council’s planning committee and was deferred as the committee wants the developer to look again at the layout, types of houses and location of affordable homes. The application will then go back to committee for determination.

Outline planning permission was granted in October 2014 for residential development of up to 200 houses, so the principle of building houses on the site has been established.

This application for reserved matters, including layout, scale, appearance and landscaping, includes building 192 homes, with a mix of house types and sizes between one and five bedrooms, 48 of which would be 
affordable. Two areas of public open space are proposed to the southern end of the development. Immediately beyond the boundaries of the site to the south a football pitch and parking area is shown, and this has recently been separately approved under a different application.

In the planning statement submitted with the application, it says “the application proposals represent a deliverable housing development, located within a sustainable location, which can contribute to local housing objectives in respect of housing needs and demand.”
