Affordable homes plan discussed in East Yorkshire

A total of 23 new two and three bedroomed homes are planned for Holme on Spalding Moor in East Yorkshire.

The proposal for Sands Lane has been produced by Chevin Housing Association with the support of East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

The council said the plans had been put forward after a parish council survey found there was a demand for affordable homes in the area.

A meeting to discuss the proposals will take place on Thursday.

The council said the demand for affordable homes was demonstrated by the fact that there were 360 households on the council house waiting list for the village, 38 of whom put Holme on Spalding Moor as their first choice.

Planning application

However there are only 44 council houses in the village.

The proposals are at the consultation stage, prior to the submission of a planning application.

Interested parties are invited to the village hall to view the proposals between 1530 BST and 1900 BST on Thursday.

Councillor Jane Evison, the council's portfolio holder for housing, said: "I am keen to see the development progress to the planning stage and hope the people of Holme on Spalding Moor get behind the scheme.

"It will go some way towards meeting the undoubted housing need for local people who might otherwise be unable to compete in the housing market in the village."
