Last Thursday the developer of the Kirkland Street/George’s Place Development contacted me to discuss new proposals for the site.
The development recently had an appeal refused after my objection to the original application. It was for 8 one bed apartments and 4 two bed houses but with only four parking places.
Having produced new plans, ERYC suggested that the developer discuss the plans with me prior to submission.
The new plan is for 4 one bed apartments and 4 two bed houses but with eight parking spaces. As this is the type of housing Pocklington needs, in principle, I will give it my full support.
In principle I believe there to be no need for the application to go to committee and can be an officers decision.
This is a wonderful example of ERYC, a developer and Ward Councillor working together on a planning application for the benefit of residents to produce homes that are required.
I look forward to this abandoned site being transformed into a much needed development.
