Rail Freight Terminal rejected in Selby

CategoryNews Author Peter Village KC Date

An inspector appointed by the Secretary of State for Housing Communities and Local Government has rejected an appeal by Harworth Group plc for 2 million square feet of industrial (B2/B8) floorspace as part of a rail freight interchange facility outside Sherburn in Elmet in Selby District. The Inspector accepted the arguments put forward by Peter Village QC acting on behalf of Samuel Smith Old Brewery (Tadcaster) that the proposal was contrary to up to date policies in the Core Strategy and Local Plan, and that the location was inherently unsustainable.
