Last minute changes to the Draft Local Plan (available from here: have been swept into the proposal during the busy August holiday season and relate to land at Manor Farm, Highgate (Site Reference CHER5/7). The change would mean the removal of a number of large existing farm buildings, replacing them with a new build of 22 houses crammed onto just 1 hectare of land. This new proposal will have a major impact on our homes and everyday lives for those not just living on Highgate, but in the wider Cherry Burton community. For Example: • Increase in Flood Risk due to strain on already faltering village drainage system leading to potential local flooding • Increase in noise pollution during and after works • Decrease in already poor road safety due to increase in traffic during and after works, both on Highgate, throughout the village and at the busy Malton Road junction • Increase in light pollution • Change from a rural setting to new build zone • Damage to the Conservation Area • Further decline in populations of Bats, Barn Swallows, Tawny Owls and Barn Owls Please log your objections here by the 30th September: And sign this online petition before the 27th September
