Green Belt threat confirmed

Details of Labours plan to build on the Green Belt have been published on the Councils web site only 4 days before their proposal is due to be rubber stamped by the Council.
Under the plan fewer homes would be built on the “Brownfield” York central site which is located behind the railway station.
Instead around 4000 homes would be constructed on greenbelt land in the Huntington and Osbaldwick areas.
In Westfield the Our Ladies school site is down to accommodate 69 homes while the Lowfields site could see 96 units constructed.
The allocation of development is summarised in the following illustration.

Dozens of amendments to the Local Development Framework have been tabled for Thursdays Council meeting with no attempt made to have any kind of public consultation on the changes.
