Consent gained for more than 90 houses

North Yorkshire Council planning committee has unanimously approved plans for 92 new homes off Caxton Close, Brompton on Swale, near Catterick.

The proposals, submitted by housebuilder Persimmon, will see significant investment in the area alongside the new houses.

Homes on the development will range from two to four bedrooms. 37 properties will be transferred to a local housing association or sold at a reduced market rate.

As part of planning approvals for the site, subject to the section 106 agreement being agreed, Persimmon is expected to contribute over £300,000 to go towards education.

Plans also include a new on-site play area and delivery of off-site play area improvements.

Residents on the site will have access to over three acres of useable public open space, which is over a quarter of the site.

Richard Holland, land and planning director at Persimmon, said: “We’re pleased that members have granted permission for 92 new homes in Brompton on Swale.

“Persimmon is committed to building high-quality, affordable homes for local people, and this development provides a mix of house sizes for families and downsizers alike.

“Approval of these new homes provides significant funding for improvements to the local area.”
