CONTROVERSIAL plans to build an asphalt plant at Brandesburton, previously rejected by East Riding Council, are now recommended for approval following a resubmitted application for a different site in the village. The application, by Newley Asphalt Ltd is for land south of Catfoss Pig Farm in Catfoss Lane. The previous rejected application was for a site at the junction of Bridlington Road and Catfoss Lane.

Members of East Riding Council’s planning committee, meeting next Thursday, will hear of 341 objections from members of the public along with objections from East Yorkshire MP Greg Knight and Bewholme, Brandesburton, Catwick and North Frodingham parish councils.

A report to the committee says the new proposal and change of location for the asphalt plant has been submitted in an attempt to address the previous reasons for refusal  – the harm to visual amenity and character of the countryside. The report concludes: “The application site already benefits from an established employment use within an industrial estate and this proposal is in-keeping with the external materials, plant, scale and nature of development on the application site as well as the wider industrial estate.” If agreed, the plant would create 12 jobs.

A BEVERLEY business, said to be the only one of its kind in East Yorkshire, is holding an open day this Saturday. Salt Revive, in Mill Lane, opened in 2018 offering salt treatment for adults and children with various health issues, including breathing and skin ailments. Free treatment sessions are being offered between 10am and 3pm, but booking is advised. More information here
