Plans to build two new housing developments in Pocklington and Market Weighton will go before East Riding Council’s planning committee today.
An application by Linden Homes North and J.G. Hatcliffe and Partners has been submitted to build 222 new homes on land north of Mayfields, The Balk, Pocklington.
Affordable housing is proposed on the site at 25%, which equates to 59 affordable homes.
Director of Planning and Economic Regeneration Alan Menzies has recommended that the application be deferred for the completion of a Section 106 Agreement to secure the delivery of affordable housing and contributions towards elements of public open space.
He also suggests it should be deferred for negotiations over the mix of affordable houses and for confirmation being received from the council’s highways department that they have no objection to the application.
The same developers have submitted plans to build 99 new homes on land north west of Sweep Close, Market Weighton, which the planning committee will also make a decision on today.
This application was deferred at the planning committee meeting on 13 February for a site visit and for further discussions between officers, ward councillors and the developer regarding access arrangements.
Mr Menzies has recommended that the planning committee defer the application again pending the completion of a Section 106 Agreement to secure the delivery of affordable housing and contributions towards highways infrastructure and elements of public open space.
