Final approval is set to be granted for two new housing estates which would mean more than 260 homes built in the Catterick Garrison area.

Plans have been resubmitted for 155 houses on fields off Horne Road.

Approval was granted for up to 170 houses on the site in 2018, despite significant local opposition.

The latest plans set out the appearance, layout and landscaping of the development.

A total of 117 three-bedroom and 38-four bedroom properties would be built, three of which would be bungalows.

The application has been submitted by the Defence Infrastructure Organisation for the Ministry of Defence.

The development would provide accommodation for service families.

A report on the plans for planning committee members to consider states: “The appearance of the proposed buildings has been developed with a robust, high quality material palette which references local context whilst also building upon the established design philosophy of MOD housing.

The scheme will provide high quality and well-designed buildings which relate well to each other and the surrounding developments centred on well planned public routes and spaces.”

Plans for 107 homes at Brough St Giles will be discussed at the same meeting.

Outline planning permission was granted for the scheme in 2018.

Of the 107, houses 75 would be available at market rates and 32 would be classed as ‘affordable’ with 50 per cent available for ‘affordable rent’ and 50 per cent for ‘discount for market sale’.

Planning officers are recommending both schemes are given approval to go-ahead.

The schemes will be considered by councillors at a meeting on Tuesday, September 7 at the Scotch Corner Hotel.

  1. A roundabout? For a housing estate on a 30mph road!
    We can’t even get one at “suicide junction” on a 60mph road in from the A1M
