New homes scheme moves a step closer

Plans to build 44 new homes in Wilberfoss have moved a step closer to receiving the green light.

A planning application for full planning permission to build the development on land north of Windmill Meadows went before East Riding Council’s planning committee last Thursday.

The application, submitted by Persimmon Homes, was deferred but once a section 106 agreement has been completed to secure affordable housing, the council’s director of planning and economic regeneration, Alan Menzies will be authorised to grant planning permission subject to the conditions set out in his report.
