PLANS have been submitted to create a new village community on a disused golf course in North Yorkshire.

Flaxby Park, between York and Harrogate, would include 2,750 homes along with a retirement village, two primary schools, a GP surgery, sports facilities, a new village centre and improvements to local transport links.

More than half of the site would consist of green open space.

The developers believe their vision holds the key to unlock Harrogate Borough Council’s under delivery of new housing stock, as well as generating approximately £4.9m in council tax each year.
