A planning application has been submitted for five new houses in Leyburn.

The properties would be build on land off Coverdale Close, near Maythorne Farm.

Two two-bedroom houses, two three-bedroom and a four bedroom property are proposed by applicant R Ford.

Agent Chris Hodges said pre-application advice had been taken Richmondshire District Council.

He added: The application was generally positive with the use of an infill site in Leyburn to improve housing stock.

“We have reviewed the comments and changed the mix to create some two bedroom dwellings.

“Also highways issues have been addressed with the extension of the highway south into the site.”
