Councillors back plans for 92 new homes in Brompton-on-Swale

Plans for 92 new homes in Brompton-on-Swale have got the backing of councillors.

Members of North Yorkshire Council voted unanimously in favour of a motion minded to approve the application from housebuilder Persimmon.

The plans will now need slightly modifications which will be overseen by council officers before given the final go-ahead.

Homes on the development will range from 2 to 4 bedrooms.

The developers say 37 properties will be transferred to a local housing association or sold at a reduced market rate.

As part of planning approvals for the site, subject to the section 106 agreement being agreed, Persimmon is expected to contribute more than £300,000 to go towards education.

The developers say residents on the site will have access to over 3 acres of useable public open space, which is over a quarter of the site.

Plans also include a new on-site play area and improvements to other local play areas.

All homes will be fitted with solar panels and EV chargers and will be built to new building regulations offering reduced CO2 emissions and improved energy efficiency, helping reduce energy bills for homeowners.

Richard Holland, land and planning director at Persimmon, said: “We’re delighted that members have granted approval for 92 new homes in Brompton on Swale.

“Persimmon is committed to building high-quality, affordable homes for local people, and this development provides a mix of house sizes for families and downsizers alike.”

The development would see 15 two-bedroom, 40 three-bed and 37-four bed properties built.

Of these, 37 would be classed as affordable, with a mixed of rented and discounted market sale homes.

More than 20 objections were  received from local residents.

Issues raised included an increase in traffic, lack of local facilities including schools, health services and play areas, and the impact on wildlife.

Two submissions in support of the scheme were also received.


  1. Why so many 4-bedroom houses , which not many people need?
    Why no one-bedroom houses?

  2. As house builders they don’t have a good reputation. Just look at the reports from people who have bought one over the years.
