New village proposed at Flaxby
Plans have been put forward for an entire new village to be built on the 280-acre site on Flaxby golf course.
The Skelwith Group who has planning permission for a 300-bed hotel, which was granted in 2008, owns the land. They have put the £100million Flaxby Hotel development on hold, whilst new plans are drawn up for the village, which could see up to 2,500 new homes being built if permissions are granted.
A spokesman for Skelwith Group said: “Harrogate Borough Council (HBC) needs to find a substantial amount of land for housing and employment development to maintain the districts’ prosperity in the years ahead. It needs to avoid Green Belt sites, and to choose locations which are both sustainable in planning terms and which are in places where people want to live and work.
“In this context, we believe the golf course and other land may have a role to play, and this possibility is currently being explored. However, the matter is at a very early stage, and the idea is still evolving.”
