There are several related, but slightly separate issues locally regarding minerals and waste:
|1||Former Stillingfleet Mine site||Proposals to develop part of the site as a waste sorting centre. |
The planning application has been submitted by Harworth Estates.
The Parish Council has made representations, worked to support local residents with their objections and to raise the profile of the issue. The Parish Council reiterated its concerns in summer 2019.
North Yorkshire County Council are the determining authority for the application, and residents can read more or make representations at: https://onlineplanningregister.northyorks.gov.uk/register/PlanAppDisp.aspx?recno=10129
At the time of writing it is not known when North Yorkshire County Council will make a determination on this application.
|2||Former North Selby Mine site||Proposals to develop the site as a caravan park, with a mix of static caravans, touring plots and glamping pods. |
This planning application was submitted by Harworth Estates in January 2019, and the Parish Council agreed its response at February's meeting.
This site currently has planning permission for use as an anaerobic digestor site.
The application will be determined by City of York Council for the majority of the site, and Selby District Council for the parts of the site within Selby District.
