THORPE WILLOUGHBY PARISH COUNCIL

Dear Resident,

You may be aware that a letter and consultation pack is to be circulated by the developer to some residents near to the above mentioned site, to see what types of house design and layout would be suitable.

The Consultation is being conducted by: ‘PB Planning” on behalf of Miller Homes.

As promised, the Parish Council is keeping everyone informed about progress for this site:

  • In January 2015 this land was granted OUTLINE Planning Permission – so the principle of residential housing on this land has been established.
  • However, before anything can be built on this land a “RESERVED MATTERS” Planning Application has to be submitted to Selby District Council (SDC) to approve the layout and design of the dwellings – Miller Homes are looking to submit this application to SDC by the end of January 2016.
  • Prior to submitting the Reserved Matters application to SDC, a “Neighbour Consultation” exercise has to be carried out and this is what is happening now. This consultation is with the DEVELOPER and your suggestions may or may not be incorporated into the final plans that will be submitted to SDC.
  • Residents can make observations to the developer if they wish to, but please note that any comments made by you will only be to the developer and does not affect your rights to make a formal objection/comment to Selby District Council when the formal Planning Application is lodged with them.

Please be reassured that residents will be advised as soon as the Parish Council receives notice of a Planning Application.

Although the Consultation Exercise will be raised at the next Parish Council meeting on Monday 18 January 2016, no detailed discussion or decisions will be made at that meeting.

The Parish Council may arrange a separate special meeting to discuss the formal Planning Application, once received, which will be open to residents.

Notice of any future meeting(s) to discuss this matter will be advertised on:

the village notice boards, the Post Office window, the “Village Website” www.thorpewilloughby.info or in the “Monthly News” parish magazine.
