Chapelfields looking better but delays to some repairs

Responding to a recent survey, local residents had said that litter and weed growth were one of their main concerns.

Good therefore to see this week that the Chapelfields estate is looking much tidier. Most gutters are weed free although the recent wet/warm weather will likely prompt further growth. Litter also seems to be under control.

We’ve reported one or two other public service issues that require attention.

The Council have been asked to give start date for promised additional lay-by on Bramham Ave. The provision of off street parking will make access easier for buses, bin lorries etc.

Notices put up to deter dog fouling

Grange Lane park largely litter free

Gutter in The Burn were reported and are now largely clear of weeds (although there are some on the footpath)

Still waiting for new fence on Walton Place snicket. Was ordered several months ago.

Graffiti on Grange Lane snicket needs to be removed

Lamppost 11 on Grange Lane is leaning. Reported for action

Telecoms junction box on Bramham Road vandalised

Sad to see garage 11 on the Bramham Road block still unused. Was reported to the Council 6 months ago.

Build outs make street cleaning and weed removal difficult

Weeds in St Stephens Square have not been treated this summer.

Trolley storage area on Acomb Car park needs a good clean

Latest planning applications for the Westfield Ward

Plans could bring more traffic problems to Ascot Way

Below is the latest planning applications received by the York Council for the Westfield ward.

Full details can be found by clicking the application reference

There are two linked applications, which could have a major impact on the Green Lane/Kingsway West/Ascot Way part of the Westfield ward, published this week.

In effect part of the existing Hob Moor School playing field will be built on because of a plan to provide a centre for disabled children on the site currently occupied by Windsor House.

A compensatory school sports field will be provided on an area of land, adjacent to Hob Moor, which is currently left in a natural state. Improvements to the remaining nature reserve are promised.

The most controversial aspects of the children’s centre plan relate to traffic, parking and the development timetable.

Contrary to expectations, all traffic will access the children’s centre site via Ascot Way.

An (unconvincing) traffic assessment report says this can be accommodated on the existing highway network. The reports appear not to consider the fact that Kingsway West is a “no through road” and that existing bends in Ascot Way already make it difficult for wide vehicles to pass each other. Despite this, officials talk of several mini buses accessing the new development each day. Mini buses already access the adjacent parking areas at the school. They are adequate to meet the needs of the new centre.

The Council’s transport consultants also appear to have a romantic view of the ability of the number 24 bus service to accommodate additional demand. No attempt has been made to provide a more suitable (off street) bus stop on Ascot Way.

Only 15 parking spaces will be provided at the Children’s Centre, which will employ 42 staff.

The applications are silent on the timetable for development.

Residents have already said that it would be wrong for building works to be taking place at both this site and the nearby Newbury Avenue garage site development at the same time. Plant and lorries from two sites would further damage an environment that has yet to recover from the extended development at Hob Stones and recent “broadband” excavations.

The establishment of the centre of excellence for disabled children is a worthy idea, but the implications ion the surrounding community need to be understood and resolved before any planning permission is granted.

A separate planning application for changes to Lincoln Court is expected shortly.  Both should be considered together by the planning committee as they are interdependent.
