Westwood Hospital Planning Application Update (or not…)

According to the East Riding of Yorkshire Planning Portal the ‘determination date’ for this application has now passed (see Figure 1).  However, no notice has been received of a decision either in email or letter format, as is the norm. In truth it would be a travesty if the ERYC were to allow this application to go through with the number of holes and omissions there are in the submission.

As we have stated before on this blog, NSH believes that this application should be refused as it is deficient in terms of the built heritage of the site, the ground elevations, overlooking, ecology and drainage. In short, it is a dog’s breakfast! We suspect that the ERYC will defer the application at this juncture, allowing time for the developers to address some of the above concerns. Rest assured we at NSH will be watching developments here to ensure that there are no further encroachments on our commons and that any development is sympathetic to Westwood and those people and animals that use it for recreation or foraging.
