Derry Hill, Menston

This consultation is now closed and the Planning Application has now been submitted.  We would like to thank all those who contributed.


Acting on behalf of Stonebridge Homes, Johnson Mowat are to submit a full planning application for circa 48 dwellings at land west of Derry Hill, Menston.

The proposals will show a mix of market and affordable homes to help meet the current housing shortfall within the District.

Vehicular and pedestrian access will be from Derry Hill and all existing mature trees will be retained with the planting of new trees and wildflower grasslands.

Please note this application for 48 dwellings forms only part of the previously approved Barratt Homes Derry Hill site.  The remainder is now likely to appear in a separate application to be submitted by another developer from an access point off Moor Lane.

The Parish Council have been informed an application is to be submitted and Stonebridge Homes look forward to sitting down with local members to discuss timescale and construction programmes soon.

Dialogue with the Council’s Planning Department is well underway. The Council’s initial response dated 26th April 2019 is broadly supportive and can be viewed here:-  Councils-written-response-30.04.19.pdf (354 downloads)
