Julian supports residents in objection to 300 homes off New Lane

May 12, 2023

On behalf of constituents in Huntington, Julian has written to the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, Michael Gove MP, and the Planning Inspectorate to object to an application for 300 homes off New Lane.

While planning is predominantly a local authority matter, Julian’s view has consistently been that our communities require a plan-based strategy so development in York is consistent and complimentary. It is for this reason that it is of the utmost importance that York formally adopts a Local Plan as soon as possible.

With this in mind, Julian objected to this application given it is not within York’s draft local plan or Huntington Neighbourhood Plan.

Commenting, Julian said:

“While it is clear that York needs more homes so that our children and grandchildren have a place to live, community consent is key.

Plans for 970 homes have already been approved in Huntington and the Local Plan identifies other areas locally designated for development so I believe it is perfectly reasonable that residents want to protect precious green space.

I will be in contact with all constituents who have written to me regarding this application and encourage residents to submit their own objections, although I have provided the details of those who have written to me to the Inspectorate for consideration.”
