Howden Link Road is One Step Closer

Those who have been following the campaign for a Howden link road rather than a weight limit that would have resulted in more HGVs diverted through Howdenshire villages, will be pleased to know that a significant step has been taken. The ERYC has made the decision to release the land North of Howden for development, which with an offsite contribution must pay for a future link road, to remove HGVs and other traffic from Howden's Flatgate.

I hope the site’s developers now come up with a holistic plan to address the housing needs of Howden, to include low cost starter homes as well as affordable housing, plus a range of other housing to cater for an identified need. This coupled with the recent planning approval for the new Press Association carpark on Station Road is forward looking - and can only be good news for Howden and Howdenshire’s residents and businesses.

If only a larger carpark could be provided at North Howden Railway Station!!!
