93% Said To Support Re-Development Of Malton Livestock Market
7:31am 17th December 2013
It's claimed 93% of people are in favour of plans to re-develop the Livestock Market in Malton.
Commercial Development Projects says of 245 people who commented only 2% were opposed to the plan over all. The public consultation ran from the 12th -14th December.
The public exhibition set out details of an interlinked package of development proposals for Malton including the relocation of the livestock market to a new purpose built facility on land adjacent to Eden Camp along with a new business park.
That development would, say Commercial Development Projects, in part, be funded by housing development on three sites, land north of Pasture Lane and north of Rainbow Lane in Malton and land south of Westgate in Old Malton.
They add that the consultation commenced with a reception on Thursday evening which was attended by circa. 25 local stakeholders and was followed by a public exhibition on Friday and Saturday which was attended by circa. 245 local people.
Commercial Development Projects say that of those who provided formal comments 93% said that they were in favour of the proposals. By comparison only 2% said that they were not in favour with a further 5% in support of the new livestock market but not the new housing.
The most frequently made comment was “the sooner it happens the better”, say Commercial Development Projects. They add that a small number of those who provided formal comments expressed concerns about traffic (8%) and flooding (5%).
They add that those issues will now be addressed through detailed discussions between the Commercial Development Projects design team and North Yorkshire County Highways and the Highways Agency in respect of traffic and the Environment Agency and Yorkshire Water in respect of flooding.
All comments will be carefully reviewed over the next month, say Commercial Development Projects, to ensure that any concerns are fully addressed.
Commercial Development Projects add that they will also continue to liaise with Ryedale District Council prior to the submission of planning applications in February 2014.
The Livestock Market would move to a new business park at Eden Camp while new homes would be built at Pasture Lane, Rainbow Lane and Westgate.
