Northfield Meadows, Seamer

This consultation is now closed. Vistry Yorkshire and Johnson Mowat would like to thank all who contributed to the process.

In 2017 Linden Homes were granted planning consent by Scarborough Council for their Northfield Meadows residential development which provides 241 dwellings and extensive Public Open Space. The first phase of the scheme, delivery of the first 94 dwellings, is currently under construction and Linden Homes can be found on site now.

Linden Homes now form part of Vistry Group with housebuilder Bovis Homes.

The consultation is to inform you of the intention of Vistry Yorkshire to submit a detailed planning application to Scarborough Council relating only to a small re-plan across Phase 2 of the Northfield Meadows site.

Now partnered with Bovis Homes the scheme is sought to be amended to provide a new range and variety of 2 to 4 bed house types in a style and material that reflects the local character and compliments the Phase 1 build. It is intended to deliver affordable housing in line with the existing consent.

As a result of the re-plan an additional two dwellings are proposed as part of Phase 2, this results in 243 dwellings in total across the whole Northfield Meadows development site. The internal road layout and previously proposed development area remain unchanged. The point of access remains the main development access point from Stoney Haggs Road with a proposed connection point with Beacon Road.

The original application in 2017 sought to provide a large area of Public Open Space in the south of the site which included Kickabout Zone, Children’s Play Area and Equipped Play Zone. This area remains unchanged as part of the re-plan and Vistry Yorkshire remain committed to delivering these community facilities approved as part of the original application.
