This an application to site a 20 metre high phone mast on York Road. It is technically in the Acomb Ward but may impact on Westfield residents. NB. The mast is higher than the existing mature trees in the area and may therefore be visible from some distance.
This an application relating to the fourth of the six self build plots allocated to the rear of Tudor Road on the Lowfields development. It is classified as being 2.5 storeys high but comes within the height limitation applicable to this development (see extract).
The Yorkshire Water’s work on Tudor Road, which is intended to provide services to the Lowfields development, continues to make slow progress.
Tudor Road and the public footpath were blocked for a couple of weeks from 15th June. Work on the main carriageway continued until early July. It was expected that delivery lorries to the Lowfields development site – which had been using Dijon Avenue – would then return to using the authorised Tudor Road entrance.
That hasn’t proved to be the case with lorries still trundling down Dijon Avenue each day. It seems the 2 month duration will pass before there is any relief.
Meanwhile the section of the site reserved for the Yorspace communal housing scheme has been taken over by Wates builders. They have established a spoil heap there and are also storing other materials on the site. Apparently the cooperative still haven’t actually completed the purchase of the land and it remains unclear whether the promised homes will ever actually get built.
Below are the latest planning applications received by the York Council for the Westfield ward.

Hutchison 3G Telecommunications Equipment Bellhouse Way York
Erection of 19 metre monopole supporting 6 no. antennas with a wrap around equipment cabinet at the base of the column, installation of 3 no. new equipment cabinets and ancillary development (next to grass verge, adjacent to Community centre, Bellhouse Way)
Yorkshire Water have completed their water mains repair on Gale Lane which has now reopened to traffic.
Tudor Road is still closed and will be for at least another 2 weeks. Still no provision has been made for cyclists. No doubt if this was a street located in the City Centre such neglect would bring a chorus of disapproval!
