    About The Site

    The site is located off Sandholme & Hawling Road in Market Weighton, a rural market town in the East Yorkshire Wolds just 20 miles southeast of York.

    Currently arable farmland, the site forms part of a wider residential allocation under the reference ‘MW - C’. It covers an area of approximately 17.06 acres.

    To the north, east and west of site there is existing residential development. Beyond the southern boundary, there is land allocated for future development and the A1079
