Green belt plans scaled back but 3339 houses planned for Elvington!

Can of worms, wouldn't Elvington have to change status from a Village to a Town?

3339 seems a massive number of new houses.

Any idea of the exact proposed site location?

This is a slight relocation of the plan to build the new village between Elvington and Heslington. The previous plan has been shifted because it would have disrupted the view of York from the A64.

Included in it is a new junction on the A64 to stop all of the traffic being funnelled along Elvington Lane. It would be nice to see the traffic modelling around this proposal though.

The new plan proposes taking a section out of the middle of the airfield runway. This is likely to impact its use as a leisure venue and potentially the events taking part at the Air Museum.
