Consultation launched on another 240 homes at Brough St Giles

The location of the proposed houses.

A consultation has been launched for 240 new houses in Brough St Giles.

The houses would be built on fields to the east of the village besides the A6136 Catterick Road.

A planning application is already in the system for 135 homes on a corner of the same field.

This application was originally for 145 homes, however the developers have reduced the number of properties after councillors raised concerns about the scheme, describing it as a “gross overdevelopment”.

Developers Miller Homes say they intend to submit a planning application for the 240 homes to Richmondshire District Council and would like to hear residents’ views.

The company added: “We would like to know your view on the initial proposals, what you think we should know about the site, the surrounding area, and how these points may influence any proposal for housing on the site.

“The plan below shows how the site could be developed to provide 240 new homes which would be a mix of types and sizes appropriate for a range of households.

“The layout also provides off-street parking, garages, gardens, public open space and play areas.

​”The site provides a natural extension to the existing built up area to the west. The scheme is designed to utilise the rural edge and to have a suburban character feel with an emphasis on high quality housing.”

The scheme includes a range of two, three and four bedroom properties which will be a mixture of detached and semi-detached properties. The housing will be two storey and traditional in style and form.

“A provision for affordable housing will be included within the scheme and the type and numbers of affordable dwellings will be agreed with Richmondshire District Council,” the company added.

  1. More countryside being eaten up when there is ample land owned by M.O.D. within the boundaries of the garrison lying idle.
