Flaxby developers to showcase plans for new community

Flaxby developers to showcase plans for new community

Published by Lisa Darvill at 9:02am 14th September 2018.

Plans to transform a disused golf course near Knaresborough into a village will be on show tomorrow.

The developer behind Flaxby Park, which plans to transform the old Flaxby course into a new sustainable community creating new homes and jobs, will be showcased at the event. 

Flaxby Park Ltd submitted an application at the end of 2017 for 2,750 homes along with a retirement village, two primary schools, a GP surgery, sports facilities, a hotel and a new village centre created on the brownfield site.

The plans, which developers say have garnered support, will be displayed at The Imperial Rooms, Bettys, in Harrogate Town Centre this Saturday 15th September between 1pm and 3pm.

Anyone interested in attending should email their details to 

Chris Musgrave from Flaxby Park Ltd. said:

"We felt now was the right time to make it crystal clear just why our plans are so well placed to address the real needs of the Harrogate District. Right next to the A1, with an already installed new roundabout onto the A59, we also plan to reopen Goldsborough Railway Station as a new park and ride station offering direct rail services to Harrogate, Leeds and York."

Flaxby Park has been overlooked by Harrogate Borough Council and not included in the Draft Local Plan, which determines how future developments are carried out, mapping out where new houses should be built.

The Council instead recommended a new settlement in an undefined area around Kirk Hammerton, Green Hammerton and Cattal. 

The Draft Local Plan has been submitted by the Council to the Secretary of State so it can be independently scrutinised. An independent Planning Inspector will now consider all of the evidence before making a final decision.
