Former Lowfield School Dijon Avenue York

Screening opinion in respect of the demolition of the existing building and proposed mixed use development

Ref. No: 17/01139/EIASN 

NB The Council is now talking about building a total of 191 dwellings on the site. It appears that they had not included the self-build and communal living properties in their last proposal which was for a maximum of 135 dwellings. This number of dwellings on a restricted site could only exacerbate parking problems in the area

This application seeks confirmation that a full EIA will not be required for the development. It singularly fails to recognise the amount of wildlife supported by the site, nor the fact that public access to the playing fields was restricted by the Council in 2011 on a temporary basis to avoid vandalism problems. Ironically restricting access has allowed wildlife to flourish.

Piccadilly container village backed by some planning department officials

Sea containers to be parked on Piccadilly?

Council planning officers are recommending that the controversial plan to erect a boozy shipping container village on Piccadilly be approved.

The paper for the planning committee reveals that concerns about impact on the Conservation area and the proximity of the food and drink dominated plan to existing residential properties may be discounted.

The proposed approval of the scheme reflects badly on the competency of the planning system in the City. We already seen an ugly visitor centre approved for a site near Clifford’s Tower while Councillors earlier in the year gave the OK to siting an arts barge on the Ouse. The barge also will have alcohol at the heart of its customer offer.

If the shipping container plan is approved it is unlikely that we will see the permanent development of what is a key site in the City until late in 2020 at the earliest.  The Council – which owns the site – has never satisfactorily explained why – since the end of the recession – they have not been marketing the location for permanent development .

Ironically it seems that the Shambles market will be one of the main casualties if the project does get the go ahead.

We feel very sorry for those residents living in properties to the rear of the site.

One is located only 2 metres from a container.

Hull Road playing fields to be built on

Officials are recommending that playing fields next to the John Lloyd leisure centre on Windmill Lane be built on. There have been numerous objections to the plan which would see 70 houses constructed.

The application includes 1, 2, 3 and 4-bedroom houses and flats, all of which are indicated as being two storey. 30% of all house types would be affordable

The playing fields have been used for many years by St John University.

Three sports pitches are in regular use there by teams not associated with the university. As part of the previous development of the site – to provide the David Lloyd Leisure Centre (2001) – a s106 agreement was signed stating that the playing fields should be made available for a minimum of 16 hours per week.

The immediate surrounding area (Hull Road Ward) has a shortage of public space. In that regard, there are parallels with the Councils rush to build on playing fields at the former Manor and Lowfields school sites on the other side of the City.

In all cases the sites are mentioned in the emerging Local Plan but have not yet been subject to a public examination.

The plans are therefore premature and deny residents the opportunity to state their case to an independent inspector.

Fossgate sign gets planning permission

Proposed metal banner

Councillors decided last night by 7 votes to 3 to approve plans to install a high level sign at the entrance to Fossgate.

The application had attracted no objections and in the end only three Labour Councillors opposed the plan.

Both Liberal Democrat representatives on the planning sub committee committee (Sue Hunter and Keith Orrell) spoke in support of the proposal

Conservation officers had opposed the sign saying it might create a precedent for other streets in the City. However the Civic Trust plan attracted support from local traders and the Merchant Adventurers Company as well as residents

The gateway sign is expected to be installed before the end of the year.
