Decision details

Development of Land at 28 Pannal Green, Harrogate:

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No

Decision:

The Cabinet Member for Housing and Safer Communities approved:

 

The submission of a planning application for 100% affordable housing on land at 28 Pannal Green, Harrogate. 

 

The submission of a bid to Homes England to seek grant towards development of the site at 28 Pannal Green, Harrogate. 

 

Reasons for the decision:

To deliver much needed affordable housing on an underutilised council-owned site (the garden of 28 Pannal Green, Harrogate). To align approvals and funding arrangements.

 

Alternative options considered:

Not to submit a planning application for development of the site at 28 Pannal Green, Harrogate. The site is currently an underutilised piece of garden land that the resident can no longer maintain themselves and is thus maintained at council expense. There is potential for it to provide a much needed, additional, affordable family home into the Housing Revenue Account (HRA).
