Duchy invites views on proposed new homes for Harrogate

The Duchy of Lancaster is inviting the people of Harrogate to a public exhibition at The Sun Pavilion on Friday 19th June 2015 to view proposals for a new development scheme at Cornwall Road.

The proposals include green recreational space, community walkways and cycle paths, sports pitches and extensive landscaping around a diverse number of property designs created to reflect the existing Duchy estate. Local stakeholder groups and members of the public have been invited to view the initial proposals and provide feedback prior to any application being submitted to the local authority.

Duchy Chief Executive Nathan Thompson said: “We are very much looking forward to sharing our thinking with the people of Harrogate and to listening to what they have to say. The Duchy has been a landowner in Harrogate for over 600 years and we want to consult as widely as possible so that our plans can reflect and address any local concerns.”

The exhibition will be open from 11.00 am to 9.00 pm on Friday 19th June at The Sun Pavilion in Valley Gardens. Alternatively, plans can be viewed and commented on via a dedicated website: www.cornwallroadconsultation.com.
