The developers behind plans for hundreds of new homes near North Ferriby say the project would be good for the region. A public inquiry is underway after a planning application was turned down earlier in the year.
St. Modwen lodged an appeal with the Planning Inspectorate following East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s decision to turn down our outline planning application for good quality family homes at Melton, in May this year.
We remain convinced that our proposals for a residential development represent the most viable option for this site and for the region as a whole. It is now a matter for the Planning Inspectorate and for the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.
– Richard Bannister, Development Manager at St. Modwen
A public inquiry has opened in to whether developers St Modwen should be allowed to build 510 homes near North Ferriby. Around 1,400 households objected to the scheme, which was refused planning consent by East Riding Council in May, prompting the developers to launch an appeal.
The outcome of the public inquiry will be sent to Communities Secretary Eric Pickles for the final say.
