Property developer Opus North has submitted plans to construct a new 84-home estate in the village of Spofforth in North Yorkshire.
The Ilkley-based property developer and investor has submitted plans to transform an L-shaped piece of vacant agricultural land which neighbours the grade II-listed All Saints Church.
The site consists of two plots to the south of Harrogate road and is currently accessed via Massey Fold, which serves a newer development consisting of a mixture of converted village farm buildings and new properties.
The site is bound to the east by the River Crimple and the development would consist of several different housing types ranging from one bedroom apartments to five bedroom dwellings.
Aspects of All Saints Church date back to the Norman era, before being remodelled in the 1400s and again in the 19th century.
Opus North recently announced that it had completed 32 deals and lease renewals across their three shopping centres in Hunslet, Sheffield, and Widnes.
The design and access statement submitted by Ellis Healey Architecture, on behalf of Opus, said: “The proposal is intended to provide a residential development in line with the aspirations of twenty first century living and to respect the site location and its existing context.
“Proposals were developed to incorporate dwellings with varied accommodation and mix of tenures within an attractive landscape setting.”
