City of York Council plans for Lowfield Green – click on image to comment.

Above are the latest plans that have been released by City of York Council for Lowfield Green. The Council are asking for comments on the latest revisions to the Lowfield Green development proposals – You can link to the Consultation documents and comment page by clicking the image.

Please click on the “comment on this page” button to add your comments of support – we are asking our supporters to tell the Council that there is support for the development and, most importantly, for the community self build plot with YorSpace as the prospective developer.

“Our site” is towards the South East corner of the plan next to the proposed Village Green.

Since January we have been working with Native Architects and Coho Ltd. to create an initial plan to help create a possible layout and business model to deliver our low cost, cooperatively owned, environmentally sustainable, community housing scheme.

Currently we are planning to create 19 homes with a “common house” community building plus plenty of car free shared and private outdoor space. The plans have not been finalised and there is still lots of work to do but we are feeling confident that we are able to meet our aims here.

Please do take the time to comment, it would really help our case as we begin negotiations with City of York, as it shows the demand for our kind of approach to delivering housing in York! The deadline is 31st July 2017.
