All-clear for first part of 650-home Northallerton plan
Church Commissioners for England has received planning permission for 145 homes in the North Yorkshire town, with 30% affordable homes.
The homes are the first phase of the delivery of a new community of 650 homes which will include a primary school and local community centre, a project mapped out to fit in with adopted Hambleton Local Plan.
The development is located 1.5km north-east of Northallerton town centre, and 2km from Northallerton’s railway station
Matthew Naylor, principal strategic land manager at the CCE, said: “This planning consent will be an important first phase in the delivery of a new 650-home community that will include vital social infrastructure such as a new primary school and community centre, in addition to much needed new housing.
“Delivering more homes of all types and tenures is critical to addressing England’s housing crisis and we are particularly pleased to be offering a range of affordable housing tenures as part of this first phase, which is in line with local planning policy and the Church Commissioners’ aspirations to create sustainable, safe, stable, sociable and satisfying places to live.”
Under the plans approved by North Yorkshire Council, 44 of the new homes will be affordable, in line with local planning policy.
Church Commissioners for England acts to support the Church of England’s work. The organisation manages a £10.3bn investment fund and is busy in other areas, recently securing consent for 1,000 homes in Lincolnshire.
