Thackeray’s Yard, Malton
Many existing settlements contain pockets of underused land that, although available, are sometimes difficult to redevelop. Thackeray’s Yard is a disused transport depot set behind existing village properties and only accessed through a narrow lane. The area presents an unslightly anomaly in the village of Old Malton, an area that has been designated as a Conservation Area within Ryedale.
The proposed development is limited in scope to twenty-one houses arranged in a picturesque, village-like pattern familiar to North Yorkshire. The design includes roads with green verges, framed views to the open country beyond, and local material patterns of stone and pantile.
