Following on from the No3 Belgrave Terrace's approved planning application for the construction of 2 new houses on the site of 3 Belgrave Terrace, an application to cut two thirds of the Yew trees that occupy the site is currently being considered by the local and district councils. To anyone that wishes to preserve these 150 year old trees from being cut back - or even cut down, as was the case with some of the other fruit trees that made up this historic garden, this is a good to time to lodge your objection by visiting the hambleton district council planning portal.


The application proposes to demolish the double garage and replace this with two, four-bedroom units with associated car parking and garden space. The proposal would include a centralised rear wing to serve the two properties. A total of four car parking spaces would be provided as part of the development, one each for the new dwellings and two replacement spaces for number 3
