Barratt Homes, the company behind the proposal for 96 properties beside Cayton Village Caravan Park, was first granted permission by the Scarborough Borough Council in 2017.
The developers have now finalized their plans and are awaiting approval at a meeting this Thursday, but local councilors still have objections.
The Cayton Parish Council suggested previously that the site should be used as an extension to the local cemetery, is now concerned over the potential of increased traffic on the roads and the capacity of the village’s sewer system.
It has also raised concerns in the nearby St John The Baptist Church.
“The initial provision to that space [near the church] was for bungalows only to give decency to that area which is the oldest in the village.” The parish council said in a letter.
“Anything other than single-storey dwellings will overpower the area. The council feels that they are being forced to accept the various developments in the village, and it is disgraceful that the one area of Cayton that has historical significance is being ignored.”
The Mill Lane site was once used as a recreational area for the Cayton Village Caravan Park.
In the latest proposal, Barratt Homes reduced the number of properties from 113 to 96, including a mix of one, two, three, and four-bedroom residences. The plans also include 14 affordable homes.
“The principle of developing this site is, of course, already established through the outline consent. The scheme blends a variety of dwelling types with good permeability, strong links to public transport, safe and secure access to public open space.” Barratt Homes said in its application.
“These elements will ensure the creation of a pleasant environment to live in and a development which assimilates well into its surroundings.”
