Tadcaster Road - Speed Limit Change

  • Residents may have noticed that the start of the 30mph speed limit has been moved from its original location near the balance pond on Tadcaster Road to further into the village just before the McCarthy Stone apartments.
  • This change was made by City of York Council against the strong objections of the Parish Council.
  • The PC pointed out that the original start location was at the point where the footpath changes sides of the road, where the cycle path from York changes sides of the road and where a change of surface in the road was installed as a physical reminder for drivers.
  • The PC also pointed out that the field alongside the original start of the 30mph speed limit was likely to come under pressure to be developed for housing in the near future (see below) and that the speed limit would probably have to be moved back if this started.
  • The change is currently ‘experimental’ but will become permanent if the City Council does not receive objections.
  • Residents wishing to object should write to the Assistant Director (Economy & Place), West offices, Station Rise, York YO1 6GA to be received by 19th August 2018

Tadcaster Road - Gladman Developments Proposal

  • Gladman Developments, acting for the landowner of the field between Tadcaster Road Link and the East Coast railway line at the North end of the village, have announced their plan to apply for outline planning permission to build ‘up to 170 new homes’ on the site
  • They have distributed leaflets to approximately 480 households in the village but the Parish Council believe that all households should have the opportunity to see and comment on this proposal.  This link goes to an online version of the Gladman leaflet: www.your-views.co.uk/Copmanthorpe
  • For information, the Copmanthorpe Neighbourhood Plan (link), currently nearing completion of its various stages, proposes to limit development on this site to 75 new houses

Fracking

  • The Parish Council, which is made up of village residents, holds the conservation of the environment of the Parish to be of vital importance and would never support any project that had the potential to damage this. We are totally opposed to any fracking activity in our vicinity. As yet, no fracking application has been made that would affect the Parish and we know of no intention to do so.The Parish Council has no power to decide on the outcome of any fracking application; this power is held by City of York Council or North Yorkshire County Council, depending on the site for which the application is made. We would, however, make our position absolutely clear and would strongly campaign for the City and/or County Councils to reject any such proposals in, or near, our area.We will do our utmost to defend both the village and the Parish if any fracking application is made in the future.
