Council endorses West Harrogate Parameters Plan for 2,500 new homes


A Parameters Plan document prepared by CSA to guide the masterplanning and delivery of around 2,500 new homes in Harrogate was endorsed last month by Harrogate Borough Council. The Parameters Plan document was prepared on behalf Anwyl Land, Banks Group, the Edington and Hall Families, Gladman Developments Ltd, Harrogate Borough Council, Homes England and North Yorkshire County Council.

 The document was prepared to provide an aligned, holistic site approach, addressing matters such as land use, access and movement, provision of community facilities and schools, green and blue infrastructure, public transport, cycling and pedestrian links, and phasing.

 CSA’s work included carrying out a detailed analysis of the West Harrogate sites and their surrounding context, mapping out how the influences and opportunities of each site will influence masterplan design, and showing how a number of different character areas will be created. In addition to the new homes, the West Harrogate sites will deliver two primary schools, local centres, sports pitches and employment land.
