Redrow sketches ‘garden village’ plans

The developer says the 164-acre project “will be true to the original garden village concept outlined by Sir Ebenezer Howard.”

A wide variety of 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 bed properties are promised, 30% of which are affordable, plus village amenities, including a school and shop, set around tree-lined avenues. There would be green spaces and a landscape park.

Redrow says it will seek to submit a reserved business planning application in 2023, which will include a detailed phasing plan to show how the scheme and major infrastructure will be delivered.

Traci Moore, land and planning director for Redrow Yorkshire, said: “This decision is a huge milestone and this development will be a true flagship for the division.

“Redrow is working on several large garden village developments, including the outstanding example at Woodford Garden Village in Cheshire, which has been created in line with our placemaking principles.

“Our garden villages combine a wide range of carefully designed quality homes with opportunities for leisure, recreation and play and our development in York will be no different. It will be a very desirable place to live.”

The energy-efficient home will be built in phases and is expected to take approximately 10 years to complete.
