A station at Goldsborough may not have suddenly moved a step closer

29 Jul 2019 by Cllr Rebecca Burnett

"Flaxby Park is rather jumping the gun and to suggest we've 'done a U turn' is ridiculous. At the request of the planning inspector, we carried out a further sustainability appraisal into the broad locations where a new settlement could go. As part of this work, we added a score for Flaxby in recognition of the nearby rail line, by virtue of the fact we were assessing the area around the site not just the site itself.

"This does not mean a station at Goldsborough has suddenly moved a step closer. We still believe Cattal/Hammerton is preferable as the broad location for a new settlement." was the quote from Cllr Rebecca Burnett
