Protests over Beverley homes plan

An outline planning application to build four three-bedroomed houses on the site of the former Scallywags Nursery in Victoria Road, Beverley, has drawn objections from nearby residents  concerned with what they claim is over-development in the area. The proposal, from a Routh resident, Mr Roy Brown, is now likely to go before East Riding Council’s eastern area planning sub-committee.

One of the objectors, Ms Kim Rouse, of Browns Way, said she was “devastated” by the proposal. “I moved here for the view  . . . after working hard to buy and have been constantly in the middle of building sites,” she said in a written submission to the council. She said she and her neighbours had faced the development of the Claremont House care home, new roads and proposed new shopping developments, including a drive-through McDonalds. “I am fed up of seeing the greenery disappear and brick appear,” she said.

Similar comments were made by at least three other neighbours resulting in Councillor David Elvidge asking for the planning application too be referred to the area planning sub-committee.
