details If possible send copies of your objections to the people
listed on this sheet.
Although ERYC have said comments should be received by 31st
May, they will accept comments up to the day before the Planning meeting,
and more is better.
Comments can be sent either via ERYC Planning portal, or to local Councillor
Andy Burton, who says he will make sure they are heard.
An outline planning application for the site has been lodged on the
ERYC planning site and full details of the proposals can be viewed there.
The plan reference number is 17/01494/STOUT, but putting 'Prison' in
the keyword search box at the bottom of the first page brings it up
The plans comprise a complex of 11 buildings, directly adjacent to
the existing prison, including four large four storey blocks, to house
1000 inmates (the existing prison is only 2 storeys, thanks to interventions
at the planning stage).
East Riding Council are in favour of the proposal, but other parishes
neighbouring the site also have deep reservations about its viability
for such a prison. Fangfoss with Bolton Parish Council will support
attempts being made to stop, or at the very least, moderate, the plans,
and if the latter, to seek some planning gain as a result, e.g. in the
form of new road links etc.
If you are concerned about the prison and wish to make your views
known, Full Sutton Parish Council
are hoping to co-ordinate a response, with professional help. Please
feel free to contact the clerk, Claire Miles Findlay (firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephone 01759 747001) as well as posting your views on the planning
website and writing to your local councillors to make your opinions
known. (Some contact details can be found below). The stated last date
for receipt of comments by the planning office is 31 May, so please
try to observe that deadline - although comments are usually taken into
account up until the actual decision meeting.
Some ideas of grounds for objection:
Updates will appear on the Full
Sutton & Skirpenbeck Parish Website as they develop their strategies.
