Flooding could result from building 18 homes on the site of a former agricultural contracting business at Norton, councillors were warned last week.

As a result of Cllr Di Keal’s plea, members of Ryedale District Council’s (RDC) planning committee rejected the scheme by Thomas Crown Associates to build the houses on land at Lakeside Way, Welham Road.

She said the area was on the Environment Agency flood plain map so was at a high level of flood risk already.
