  3. Purpose of Meeting

    To consider Planning Application 21/01115/MOUTE, viz:

    1) Hybrid Planning Application comprising: 1) Full planning permission for the erection of 672no. dwellings comprising of 12no. one bedroom dwellings, 142no. two bedroom dwellings, 342no. three bedroom dwellings, 176no. four bedroom dwellings with parking and landscaping, new link road from Beverley Road to Hugden Way, open space, surface water drainage basins, infrastructure and site access.
    2) Outline planning permission for the erection of a primary school (site area 2.1ha).

    (Total site area 31.96 ha), and to agree any ‘Observations’ to be made to RDC Planning.
  4. Outcome of the Meeting:
    After discussion, the meeting RESOLVED unanimously that it had the following ‘Observations’ to make regarding this Application:
    a) Given that the construction of the total development is likely to take some considerable time, it is essential that the perimeter link road is constructed at the outset.
    b) As that road is intended to be the main, through link road between the A64 and Beverley Road for traffic to Driffield, Beverley, Hull, etc., it is crucial that that role is reflected in its design/construction and in particular of its continuation through the industrial zone and on to Scarborough Road.
    c) The meeting expressed its concern that unless point b) above is fully met, and perhaps despite that, the Settrington/Scagglethorpe route is likely to become a ‘rat run’ for access to/from the A64.
    d) It was noted that the Centenary Way footpath will need to be re-routed.

    AM agreed to share our concern expressed in point c) above with the Chairman of Scagglethorpe PC.

AOB

As a representative of the Village Hall Committee PD advised the meeting that, in the event that responsible Covid restrictions, e.g. social distancing, continue to be appropriate through the winter, the PC should be aware that, whilst the hire charge for the committee room, ~£12.50, would still apply, because of the cost of heating the larger space, the hire charge for the large room would remain at ~£50.
PD suggested that the PC should make its arrangements accordingly.

There being no further business the meeting closed at 6.50 p.m.
