Movements For Housing Plans In Malton
6:29am 30th June 2014
The scheme, provisionally named ‘High Malton’, has been subject to extensive public consultation and modified as a result, particularly to manage traffic. The revised scheme was presented to Malton Town Council last week (17 June).
The High Malton development off Castle Howard Road has seen changes to reduce concerns about extra traffic.
The Fitzwilliam Estate says the first homes could be ready in 2016.
Tobias Burckhardt, the surveyor managing the development for the landowner, Fitzwilliam (Malton) Estate:
"We are grateful for the feedback everyone has given us at the public consultations and at the many meetings we have held with local people since."
"We are now confident that the proposals, which envisage a mixed village community with local facilities, will over the next decade provide important new housing in a way which fits well within the existing road and community infrastructure – better than any other site in the area."
"This will be a pioneering scheme and we are excited to be working closely with the planning officers, statutory authorities and local stakeholders to deliver it. We know the concerns which local people continue to have about the impact on Malton’s infrastructure. We are in discussions with the district and the county councils about the improvements and significant financial contributions we will need to make to ensure that Malton can thrive as a result of our scheme."
"In particular, the highways authority will specify what works are needed to ensure that traffic flows are managed appropriately and we are actively talking to them about that."
