Development on West Leys Road

The original Outline Planning application was approved for 79 residences by ERYC in May 2017 SEE Map (pdf) Case Officer Mrs Susan Hunt This application can be viewed on Case Reference 18/03343/STREM

A further new application has now been approved by ERYC for 100 residences !

COMMENT from Website Editor
Unbelievable ! We are going to seek information from ERYC about just what guidelines they are applying as the original local plam seems to have been scrapped.

Original Proposal (79 Residences)

Next Proposal (97 Residences)

Proposed Development at West Wold
The following notice has been received by the from Redrow Homes (pdf)

See Developers Website

COMMENT from Website Editor
Yet another probable application that is far in excess of the allocated numbers on the local plan. It is recommended that residents do not make their views known on the Developer's website but await a formal planning application from ERYC then through the ERYC planning website

NOTE Website Editorial comments DO NOT represent the views of the Parish Council. If anyone has any conflicting or other views we will gladly publish them

NOTE - this is NOT yet a formal application just a letter of intent.

Confirming Relocation of Swanland GP surgery
The NHS and doctors are not regulated by ERYC or the Parish Council. The regulating body is the East Riding of Yorkshire CCG which has issued a media release on 20 Dec 2018 confirming that Swanland and Willerby surgeries will close. See PC News Page for full details

COMMENT Yet another scam "consultation" as with the Post Office and West Leys development! In all these cases they "consulted" but did not listen.

Where are Cygnet Gardens and Waller Grove?
If you are wondering where these are they appear on the new development off Tranby Lane. Sometimes qaint names are dreamt up by the developers to sell their properties. Street names are decided by ERYC in consultation with the Parish Council. Waller Grove HAS been approved and has a postcode Of HU14 3RW. Cygnet Gardens has NOT been approved as yet.
