Acting on behalf of Mulgrave Developments Ltd, DPP have secure planning approval for 64 houses at Tockwith in North Yorkshire.
The approval at Harrogate Borough Council’s virtual planning committee was received despite the application receiving over 200 objections relating to the principle of development, the density of the proposals, loss of ecology and impact on the conservation area which encompassed part of the site, views and vistas of the listed church and harm to the setting of the historic battlefield of Marston Moor.
The 64 dwellings, comprising 14 different house types, have been designed by PRA Architects to provide 4-character areas within the scheme. DPP argued that the scheme was well designed and had proper regard to the character and appearance of the village, the conservation area and listed buildings and that the scheme provided an appropriate boundary to the countryside. It was also proven that the proposals contributed significantly to the economic, social and environmental benefits of sustainable development and that significant weight could be attached to these considerations.
Mulgrave Developments Ltd is an award-winning house builder specialising in developing unique, high-quality, design-led residential properties in desirable locations throughout Yorkshire.
DPP Director Mark Lane commented:
“We are delighted to have secured this consent despite the opposition. We are pleased that Members accepted our argument that this is a well-considered scheme, reflecting the settlement and represents good design which will make it an attractive place to live.”
