“Full and in-depth information relating to the proposed development on the eastern edge of Oxspring, facilitating aspirations of the Parish Council and its Neighbourhood Plan Group”


The above statement appears on Yorkshire Land's Oxspring Fields Development website, and the Parish Council and members of the Neighbourhood Plan group are concerned that it appears to suggest that the proposal facilitates the aspirations of the Parish Council and the residents of Oxspring.


We have asked Yorkshire land to remove the statement from their website but through their planning consultants PBP they have emphatically declined to do so, on the basis that that they feel the development on Oxspring Fields would facilitate a number of the aspirations of the Parish Council and the Neighbourhood Plan Group.


However, as Yorkshire Land have not yet had sight of our draft Neighbourhood Plan, which is not yet out for consultation, we feel it necessary to advise you that their plans to build approximately 100 - 150 new homes on the Oxspring Fields site in no way relates to our draft plan, and consequently does not conform to the aspirations of either the Parish Council, or the residents of the village of Oxspring.
