The site for Seamer Horse Fair has been given a three year approval, while the next stage of Scarborough’s Middle Deepdale development gets the thumbs up.

Councillors on Scarborough Council’s planning committee are this afternoon sitting on a Special Planning and Development Committee meeting.

Items already resolved on the agenda include an application to allow a site between Seamer and Crossgates, currently used by travellers for the Seamer Horse Fair, to be made permanent.

Councillors refused to allow the site to be used on a regular basis, limiting its use to up to 14 days a year stating it would be unfair on residents if the land was used permanently.

The site will also be reviewed again by the committee after three years.

Also up for discussion was an application for 60 flats, three retails units and a restaurant at the planned Middle Deepdale development.

Councillors approved the plans for the extra care apartments, which will provide self contained living for people in their own homes, with care facilities available as and when required.

The three storey building would also be used as a base for providing independent care and medical services, day centre activities and keep fit.

Still to be discussed at this afternoon’s meeting are applications for a wind turbine in Hunmanby, and plans to build a new elevated attraction at the North Bay Railway.
