Plans for a major housing development in Stamford Bridge which will cost about £11.2million have received the green light from planners at East Riding Council.

Barratt Developments submitted a planning application to build 192 homes on land south of Roman Road, adjacent to Burtonfields Barns, which has been approved by East Riding Council’s planning committee.

The authority received four objections from local residents. Stamford Bridge Parish Council unanimously approved the application but asked that in the event of severe rain fall that the development does not exacerbate the village’s flooding issues.

Barratt Development has told the Pocklington Post that it aims to begin construction on the site in early spring this year. Outline planning permission was granted in October 2014 for residential development of up to 200 houses on the site. The latest application for reserved matters, including layout, scale, appearance and landscaping, is to build 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.

The plans went before the planning committee on 17 December last year, but were deferred by members who requested revised plans to show a better housing mix, including the addition of bungalows adjacent to the barn conversions at Burtonfield Barns. The applicant has since made these changes to the plans.
