When the Council announced its preferred list of locations for new Council houses 5 months ago, it refused to reveal which other possible locations had been considered.
Now a Freedom of Information request by Cllr Ann Reid has forced the Council to reveal the identity of the sites.
The sites under consideration were:
• Green Lane garages (Westfield Ward)
• Viking Road garages (Acomb Ward)
• Infill land on Maple Avenue. (Bishopthorpe Ward)
• Infill land to the rear of 21 – 51 Fossway (Heworth Ward)
The sites eventually selected were
Fenwick Street 9 Apartments
York Road, Haxby 4 Houses
Beckfield Lane 27 (Houses & Apartments)
Chaloners Road (Garage Court) 11 Apartments (possibly 8)
Hewley Avenue (Garage Court) 6 Apartments
Newbury Avenue (Garage Court) 9 Apartments
The Planning committee will consider the Beckfield Lane application next week. Thursday, 5th September, 2013 2.00 pm George Hudson Board Room – 1st Floor West Offices (F045)
The application includes 9 “affordable” houses and 9 “affordable” flats. In total 27 units will be built there. There have been several objections to the plans
