Residential development planned for Hunsingore
Yorkshire housebuilder Loxley Homes, part of Prospect Property Group, has submitted a planning application to build 10 new homes in the North Yorkshire village of Hunsingore.
This housing scheme will see the transformation of a brownfield site that was formerly the base of the now closed Goughs of Hunsingore farm machinery dealership.
If the application is approved, the development will consist of the construction of 10 individually designed detached properties, with either two, three or four bedrooms.
James Elliott of Aspect Architecture, who designed the scheme, said: “If we get the go ahead, we hope that the new homes in Hunsingore will go some way towards addressing the chronic shortage of housing in the area.”
A public meeting to outline the plans was held in the village in January and a decision on the application is expected by November 2015.
Jonathan Raistrick of Loxley Homes added: “Goughs was a renowned family business that had been selling farm machinery for three generations, and was something of an institution in the local area, so we’re really pleased that the site now has the chance of providing a positive legacy for the village in the form of much needed new homes.”
