Residents of both Huntington and New Earswick will be well aware of the recent applications by building companies to build more houses on both sides of the ward. Each application is considered carefully by your local councillors and local people's views sought before any comments are made.
As well as the development planned for the Old School Field in New Earswick, there are plans by JRHT to remove some garages in the village and replace them by small blocks of houses. Your local councillors went to exhibition of the plans at the Folk Hall and were able to express the views of residents to the organisers, particularly about space for parking. As a result, one of the smaller developments has been scaled back to make sufficient room for residents' cars.
It is always worth letting us know your views on local planning matters and we will then do our best to relay these to the developers and into the planning system.
