PLANS SUBMITTED FOR NEW DEVELOPMENT AT MONKS CROSS, YORK.
Following on from public consultation, which received positive support from the local community – we have submitted a planning application, along with our sister company Casa by Moda for a new sustainable development of single-family rental homes at Monks Cross, York.
The proposal includes 139 new homes purposefully designed for renters which would combine best-in-class design and build with leading smart technology and outstanding customer service, bringing a new lifestyle-driven way of living to the suburbs of York. With long-term secure tenures available, the apartments will respond to the need for new homes in York for keyworkers, growing families, professionals, and downsizers. Eleven of the new homes are purpose built fully accessibly homes on the ground floor.
Located at Kathryn Avenue in Monks Cross, next to the York Community Stadium, this brownfield site is a well-connected location with the Park & Ride in walking distance, as well as a choice of healthcare, retail, leisure, sports facilities, and supermarkets on its doorstep. The site which would be accessed via Kathryn Avenue also includes 27 car parking spaces, including four disabled spaces, and secure internal cycle storage for 140 bikes.
The regeneration in and around Monks Cross over the last few years has increased employment and demand for new homes nearby. The site presents an opportunity to redevelop the area and address the housing shortage.
