A planning application has been submitted for the development of 151 new homes and a community centre in Hemingbrough.
The site, just North of the A63 in the village, has been earmarked for residential use, with 37 of the proposed homes identified as ‘affordable’ in the plan. Should the plans be approved, the area will also feature a new community facility, designed for many uses following a recent extensive public consultation led by the Hall for Hemingbrough (HFH) Group. The local group has campaigned for seven years to have the centre established and would receive three acres of land and a grant amounting to £500,000, should the application be approved.
Bob Procter, chair of the Hall for Hemingbrough Group, said: “For over seven years, we have been looking for a way to deliver a new community hall for the village and we are pleased that we have now reached the significant landmark of submitting a planning application. Plans for the centre, indicated in Phase One, include a multi-use hall, community meeting room, a lounge area and reception, changing and toilet facilities, a car park and an outdoor grassed area. The proposal also stated that a new crossing point across the A63 will be installed to ensure that people can access the site. The facility will be located close to Hagg Lane Nature Reserve and will be run jointly by a full-time management team and local volunteers. The HFH Group said that future phases of the proposal could include the delivery of a central area, which would be used as an outdoor play space, sports provision and a potential health facility.
