Thank you to a local resident who lives in West End for alerting the blog to this. They recently received the following letter: Checking their website, which is noted on the bottom of the letter, I found: Their motto ‘Rus in Urbe’ somewhat ironically translates to: – an illusion of countryside created by a building […]

Well so much for ‘localism’ – despite both our own Town Council and Ryedale District Council voting against the housing development put forward by Cheshire based Gladman Developments the Inspector has accepted their appeal. You can read the confirmation of what many feared here – INSPECTOR’S DECISION.(PDF 20 pages)
The Gladman Inquiry at the Council Chamber, Malton concluded on Wednesday after only the second day. A site visit is still due to take place on Wed. 5th Nov. at 8.30am, starting at the school drop-off area, so any congestion can be assessed, then progress to the busy Market, finally surveying the West Fields and […]

As you will know by now Ryedale District Council planning committee voted by 8 to 1 to reject the Gladman Housing’s revised application for up to 225 homes, an application which also attracted almost 40 local objections. Kirkbymoorside Town Council also opposed the plans, claiming the scheme was too large and not suitable for the […]
Extraordinary meeting of the Planning Committee of Ryedale District Council to consider the third Gladman application. This meeting had drama, humour, gloom, (don’t worry not for us) and joy (that was for us.) it was a long, lively and at times entertaining occasion. The members of the committee had all been lobbied, (thank you and […]
In front of a large audience of over 100 local residents at Lady Lumley’s School this evening the Ryedale District Council Planning Committee refused the application by Gladman Housing by 8 votes to 1. By all accounts it was a fairly rumbustious meeting with chair of the Planning Committee, Cllr Raper walking out at one […]

In a bid to pre-empt the Judicial Review on the shambolic RDC ‘wrong button’ decision Gladman have now submitted a fresh application for 225 houses in West Fields – this time without the Care Homes originally planned, and for which they were allegedly misusing the name of Methodist Homes in their scheme. The new application […]

Canny developers have found a way to secure approval for controversial housing schemes opposed by local residents by appealing to national […]

You wouldn’t immediately think our small market town had anything in common with the tourist hotspot that is the Cotswold village of Bampton, famous for it’s part in Downton Abbey. But they too have the potential for a large new development which locals are up in arms about according this article in the Daily Telegraph. […]

Having read all the arguments for and against the Gladman development on the fields past the primary school, I thought it may be nice to show them as they are now, before any works start. So far the only sign of work are the few test sites dotted around the fields. Now is a good […]

Were the lights dimmed and the curtains pulled closed? Was the fortune teller’s globe glowing? Was incense burning? Were the tea leaves still warm? This is how I imagine the scene in the Yorkshire Press Business reporter Mark Stead’s office just prior to 7.31 a.m. on Monday, 26th. of August, 2013. Surely something like this […]
