Early stage plans revealed for 190-home scheme

Caddick Land is unveiling proposals for new homes and community open space off Station Road in Carlton, near Selby.

Around 190 new homes could be built here, including 40% affordable, with properties aimed at first time buyers, growing families and downsizers. The site is east of Station Road and is bordered to the North by the railway line.

Recreational open space is included, with potential for a children’s play area or other green open space.

The site would be accessed via Station Road and a pedestrian link from Long Hedge Lane. Caddick Land is proposing to upgrade the highway leading up to the site entrance.

The company says its emerging plans seek to protect and enhance areas of biodiversity across the site, including retention of hedgerows and new landscape planting and public green spaces.

A consultation website is now live which includes information about the plans and a feedback survey. It can be accessed at: www.stationroadcarlton-consultation.co.uk

A public drop-in event will take place at Carlton Village Hall on 24 May 2022 between 3.30pm and 7pm. Residents will be able to speak with the project team about the plans, view exhibition materials and provide feedback.

Alexandra Walsh, land and planning manager at Caddick Land, said: “We are pleased to launch this public consultation over new homes and community open space at Station Road.

“This scheme includes 40% affordable homes which would provide a significant boost for local people who are struggling to gain a foot on the housing ladder.”

An outline planning application is being prepared and residents are invited to provide their feedback to help inform the emerging scheme.

The outline plans would agree the principle of development with further detail such as the design of homes to come at a subsequent Reserved Matters scheme. A planning application is due to be submitted to Selby District Council in the coming months.
