The former NY Timber site on Trinity Lane

Red Tree Developments has submitted plans to demolish buildings at the site of the former NY Timber yard in Ripon and build 13 homes.

The site on Trinity Lane was home to a timber yard from 1860 to 2018.

Red Tree bought the 0.64-acre plot, which is adjacent to the listed buildings The Federation of Holy Trinity Church of England Junior School and St Wilfrid’s Catholic Church, from Cairngorm Capital for an undisclosed sum this year.

It has now applied to build three two-bedroom homes and 10 three-bedroom homes, which it said would alleviate demand for these types of properties in the city.

Jessica Coombes, associate director at Manchester property specialists CBRE, which negotiated the sale for Cairngorm Capital, said:

“The site is within walking distance of Ripon town centre with its wealth of services and amenities, including doctor and dental surgeries and the Duck Hill shopping quarter.

“With excellent schools nearby, including Ripon Grammar and the Holy Trinity junior school and a close-knit community feel, it is ideally placed for residential use.”

Red Tree’s planning application is one of the first proposed housing developments in the district to qualify for Harrogate Borough Council’s new Community Infrastructure Levy.

The council introduced the levy to complement Section 106 agreements, which are agreed between the authority and developers to pay for infrastructure that might be affected by new developments, such as roads and schools.
