Scalby's High Mill Housing Development Approved

Scalby's High Mill Housing Development Approved

Published by Local Democracy Reporter Carl Gavaghan at 2:09pm 16th January 2020.

Plans for almost 400 new homes as part of the next stages of the High Mill housing development in Scalby have been given the green light.

Keepmoat Homes lodged plans last year for 151 homes as part of phase two of the scheme to build approximately 500 dwellings in the Scarborough suburb, off Field Lane.

Scarborough Council’s planning committee today granted the developer approval to start construction on the 151 homes.

At the same meeting, the councillors also granted outline permission to Almora Ltd to build up to 220 dwellings during phase three of the development.

As part of the Keepmoat plans for phase two development, a children’s play area will be constructed and a bridge built over the sea cut on the site to allow access.

The planning submission for the Phase 2 development stated:

“The development will provide a mix of two, three and four-bedroom properties with the majority being two-storey in nature with some two-and-a-half-storey.

The development of the site would provide for the needs of Scalby and more so the wider urban area of Scarborough.

The development would provide a range of affordable and family homes within the area to provide for growing and existing family units.”

Six letters of objection were received by the council, with all but one of them from people who have bought homes on the phase one site.

The committee gave both schemes unanimous approval.

Committee chairman Cllr Eric Broadbent said:

“This scheme has been going on for a number of years and it will be pleasing to see it come to fruition.”

Taylor Wimpey has already constructed 142 homes as part of phase one of the development, which was granted planning permission in 2010.

still waiting for an announcement about increased services in the scarborough area after all these new builds, funny how the council always seem to miss off making any comments about those.
