North Selby Mine Leisure Park Application
Further to the consultation held in the village in September 2018, Harworth Estates have in January 2019 applied for planning permission for a mix of static caravans, 'glamping pods' and touring caravan plots on the former North Selby Mine site.
The main document summarising the plans is copied here for convenience.
The proposals straddle the boundary between City of York and Selby District - therefore proposals are being considered by the planning authority within each Council.

The site currently has planning permission for development of a waste processing site (anaerobic digestor) which was widely opposed locally (see here). The applicant advises that the application for the leisure park would supersede those plans.
Residents can comment upon the plans via the District Council's planning portal.
The Parish Council's response to the planning consultation can be found here.
For those residents unfamiliar with the site location, it is the area highlighted in red below:
In September 2019 updated proposals have been submitted. The full details of changes are published via the City of York link above (in the documents section, dated 13th September)
In summary the revised proposals reduce the total number of pitches to 323 (down from 434), which represents a reduction of nearly 26%. The changes remove the proposed development from the SINC and woodland areas amongst other things.
The Parish Council submitted a further response on 5th November 2019.
