Full details can be found by clicking the words highlighted in blue
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.
