Below are the latest planning applications received by the York Council for the Acomb and Westfield wards. Full details can be found by clicking the application reference
The long awaited proposals for the former Knavesmire Nursing home site on The Green have been submitted to the Council. They show the main building being retained and converted into 4 flats.
Elsewhere on the site the extension will be demolished and 4 bungalows will be built. Some significant works to the trees on the site are also proposed.
The application will be welcomed by many as the building has been empty for around 4 years while the overgrown trees have blocked out much of the light in the area.
