Land to the North of Escrick - Update from Escrick Park Estate with Linden Homes Limited
published on 24th Jun 2014
At recent Parish Council and Parish Meetings, Escrick Park Estate’s proposals for residential development on land to the north of Escrick were described by the Estate’s Planning Consultant. Since the Parish Meeting, the Estate has agreed terms for the development of the site with Linden Homes Limited who will now take over the promotion of the site lying to the north of Dower Chase/Dower Park and the Mine Road, with support from the Estate.
Linden Homes wish to confirm the following:
- All their residential schemes are design-lead and tailored to meet the needs and character of the area, and on this site will include bungalows.
- Linden’s detailed scheme will retain the off-site recreational, landscape, junction improvements and permissive footpath proposals previously put forward by the Estate.
- Linden Homes consider that “average” residential densities are not appropriate in this location and that the site (i.e. the combined areas currently proposed by CYC for housing and as safeguarded land), cannot accommodate anything like 250 dwellings. Their architects are currently working on a site layout which will deliver in the order of 150-160 homes.
