Following their meeting on Monday 27th March 2023, our Parish Council members finalised their response to the Balk field planning application (No. 23/00037/MREM) and sent it through to Ryedale District Council last week. Although the stated consultation period is now over, people will still be able to comment on it until the date of the meeting (of the new North Yorkshire unitary council) where the decision will actually be made. Our latest understanding is that this will not be before June.

The Parish Council’s letter has taken into account residents’ views. This detailed response, while in principle supportive, expresses significant concerns about the plan in its current form, especially regarding the fact that development of only one of the two fields is covered by this application.

We thank the Parish Council for sharing this letter with residents. It can be read in full HERE.
