Application for 107 homes in Brough St Giles submitted to council

The homes would have been built on land to the east of Brough St Giles.

An outline planning application for 107 homes in Brough St Giles has been submitted to Richmondshire District Council.

The application has been submitted on behalf of White Care Estates Limited.

Documents submitted with the application state that the site is ideal for new housing.

They say: “The site is in a highly sustainable location, due to its proximity to a host of local amenities and Catterick town centre. A bus stop is within walking distance from the site.

“This stop provides services between Richmond and Darlington.

“There is a number of local services in Colburn including shops, Colburn Leisure Centre, Colburn Community Primary School, St. Cuthbert’s C of E Church and Colburn Surgery that are within walking distance from the site.”

The plan is for a mix of housing types and styles.

The documents add: ” The dwellings will be arranged in an informal manner, following the perimeter of the site & development parcels and will be mainly overlooking development road with potential for secondary aspects where applicable.

“They will also be given suitable amounts of outside space, commensurate with the dwelling size. Access can be comfortably accommodated via a new arm to the existing roundabout. The proposal will also provide a min. of 615sqm of play areas.”

The development would include a percentage of houses classified as affordable.

An area for an open space has been identified at the North-East of the site. Two separate play areas have been indicated in North-East and South-East corners of the site.
