Plans to build 62 new homes in Weighton on display

Plans to build more than 60 new homes in Market Weighton will go on display at a public exhibition.

The proposed site for the project is on Thornton Close/Londesborough Road.

Developer Bellway Homes have prepared draft plans for a scheme for around 62 new homes, open space, access roads and landscaping on the proposed land which has been allocated for housing in the East Riding Local Plan.

Bellway is holding a public exhibition from 3.30pm to 7.30pm on Thursday (17 March) at Market Weighton Community Hall to help shape the proposals.

A spokesperson for the developer said: “The local community are being asked to provide their feedback to help Bellway shape the proposals before a planning application is submitted to East Riding Council.

“All thoughts and suggestions received as part of the consultation will be carefully considered.”

Anyone unable to attend the exhibition but wanting more information or wishing to share their thoughts about the proposals can visit the project website, www.bellway-marketweighton.co.uk, where there is a facility to submit comments online.

Subject to planning, it is anticipated that work on the development would commence in late 2016.
