Land to the South of Sandpiper Close, Whitby


Stonebridge Homes intend to submit a full planning application for the proposed residential development of 255 new homes on land opposite Whitby Business Park and to the south of Eskdale Park, Whitby.

The application site forms part of Housing Allocation HA 18 in the Scarborough Local Plan. Planning approval has already been granted on the western part of the allocation under application 21/01889/RM on behalf of Barratt David Wilson Homes.

The proposal will create a distinctive residential development which is sympathetically designed to respect the surrounding built and natural environment. Housing will compromise a mix of 1-to-5-bedroom properties varying from bungalows, detached, semi-detached and terraced to create a sustainable and mixed community meeting the local housing requirement.

What is proposed?

We would like to know your view on the initial proposals, what you think we should know about the site, the surrounding area and how these matters may influence any proposal for housing on the site.

The full application seeks planning permission for the residential development of 255 homes and associated landscaping and infrastructure works.

The scheme will include:

  • A mix of house-types including 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 bedroom properties at a mix of detached, semi-detached and terraced homes, including some bungalow provision.
  • Provision of 30% affordable homes on site. Affordable Homes are required to be visually indistinguishable and pepper-potted throughout the scheme.
  • Vehicular access is provided from Sandpiper Close and Harrier Place to the north of the site and from Stainsacre Lane through consented scheme to east.
  • A variety of parking solutions can be found within the site including on plot garages, driveways and on street parking.
  • A substantial landscape and informal green space ‘buffer zone’ is proposed to the southern and south western site boundary. The buffer zone provides separation between the proposed residential development and the Cinder Track to the south of the site.
  • The proposals make provision for the delivery of 3.08ha of open space within the site including a network of footpaths through the scheme.
  • A tree buffer is provided to the western boundary of the site with Larpool Hall to mitigate harm to the listed building.
  • A surface water attenuation basin is provided within the south west to store water on site prior to discharge in times of heavy rainfall.
