North Northallerton Planning Permission Granted

Hambleton District Council has approved plans to build 900 homes, a school, new link road, rail bridge and commercial and leisure facilities on the North Northallerton site.

Spawforths was employed as Project Urbanist to deliver the Masterplan, following nine years of discussions over the best ways to transform the northern part of Northallerton, which is currently beset with traffic issues. Building a new bypass will help to alleviate the congestion which frustrates so many people as they approach the town centre from the north and this will act as the catalyst for further investment in this part of Northallerton. It is expected that work will start as early as the New Year in order to meet the deadline for a local enterprise partnership grant of £6 million for the Darlington to Stokesley link road and Northallerton to Middlesbrough railway bridge. A key element of the development will be the link road between Darlington Road and Stokesley Road and a bridge over Brompton Beck and the Middlesbrough to Northallerton railway line, providing an alternative for motorists, and in particular HGVs, which travel through the town centre.

Mulberry Homes Yorkshire, Persimmon Homes, Taylor Wimpy and Gill have pledged a further £6.3 million. The developers will also pay £5.2 million of contributions towards infrastructure such as the school. The North Northallerton scheme will be built over 15 years, and in the first phase 300 homes of more than 15 different styles will be built within green corridors.
