A consultation has been launched on plans for 28 houses on fields in Richmond.

The development, called Bolton Crofts, would be build on land to the east of Bolton Avenue in Richmond.

Local residents have received leaflets through their door about the scheme this week.

The development would be a mix of two, three, four and one five-bedroom property, with apartments, bungalows and houses included in the scheme.

Nine of the homes would be classed as affordable available to buy at a discount.

A website with details of the proposal has been published.

It states: “This is an opportunity for the local people who will be most affected by it to make any comments (good and bad) about it.

“It has been designed to give pedestrian access by way of a step free path from the footway, cycleway and emergency link in Bolton Avenue to the footway in the east of the development along side Alexander Way.

“There is also a new footway from the proposed development to Green Howards Road on the north boundary.”

  1. no body has mentioned the impact on wildlife and the grounds adjacent to the proposed development.their is a variety of Birds owls woodpeckers nuthatch. Build houses and destroy the habitat habitat.
    we need to protect.
    35 year’s ago à development was turned down for a raft of reasons which will come out if an application is submitted.

  2. I agree with the comment about losing vital green space for birds, insects and wildlife. I would also point out that a small development of 28 houses isn’t going to make a huge difference to any perceived housing shortage. I would suspect that a number of these houses will be sold to people investing in property and using them as second homes.
