Residents object to York Councils plans to build on playing field

Action Group flyer delivered in Tudor Road area

Residents have until 31st July to object to the latest plan to build on Lowfields playing fields.

The plan, published by the Council with little advance notice, was subject to a “drop in ” consultation last week. However residents can still record their views direct to the Council at the following Email address lowfield.development@york.gov.uk.

Overall the development has now increased in size to nearly 200 homes reinforcing concerns about the impact that additional traffic will have on the neighbourhood.

The plan would seen another open green space – currently used for sports – built on.

It is likely that opposition will increase if the Council carries out their threat to move a football team from the Lowfields site onto Chesneys Field.

The move could mean part of the public open space lying next to Foxwood Lane being fenced off. A consultation “drop in” on the £40,000 proposals- again with very little advance notice –  is taking place at Acorn Rugby Club on Tuesday between 4:00pm and 6:00pm
