Project Description

Greenfield Housing


West Green, Pocklington, Leeds

West Green Pocklington is a predominantly greenfield site, located partially within Pocklington Conservation Area, overlooked by existing residential properties with boundaries comprising of mature and prominent belts of trees. A small part of the site contained an old farm complex whose buildings were of historic interest and provided a habitat for protected species.

DPP was initially instructed to secure consent for Phase 1, which included 99 new dwellings, a new medical centre with public open space and new highway access. DPP  then secured full planning permission for 222 homes as part of Phase 2.  DPP has recently been appointed to secure planning permission for Phase 3, which will join up the previously approved Phases 1 and 2, and connect two main roads leading out of Pocklington together. The Phase 3 development comprises of some 280 dwellings and will include the provision of a new full-sized football pitch which will be provided at the Henry Thirsk Amenity Centre on the northern side of The Balk.

The development as a whole will assist East Riding of Yorkshire Council in providing their target of 1,250 additional homes within Pocklington over the next 15 years via a sustainable, well-planned development.
