York’s planning committee is being recommended to approve an application to demolish the old Manor School buildings on Low Poppleton Lane.
The planning application, which will be discussed at a meeting taking place on 17th August, also contains details of major changes to road junction arrangements in the area.
The changes are necessary to allow new access roads, to the former British Sugar site, to be constructed.
In turn, this will facilitate the erection of new housing in the area.
There have been relatively few objections to the plan although the Council is being recommended to provide mitigation measures to protect the well-being of the bats that live in the school building.
