Flaxby Park will be real, self-contained, self-sustaining community featuring a wide choice of high quality homes; transport advantages; working, shopping, educational, healthcare and social amenities; beautifully landscaped setting; complete security; and a healthy stimulating natural environment.
In total - more than just a place to live, but a place for life.
Flaxby Park has the potential to deliver over a thousand high quality new homes towards Harrogate district’s needs in a countryside setting without eating into green belt. Diversity will be the touchstone - widening the opportunities for home ownership and creating a sustainable, inclusive community for all generations.
Flaxby Park is planned to foster safe, simple and healthy movement on foot, by bike and bus around the community, reduce cars use and create efficient, sustainable links with Knaresborough, Harrogate (just 15 minutes away,) Leeds and the rest of the UK.
Totally unlike an estate just to live in and travel from for everything else, Flaxby Park clusters a variety of work, education, shopping, leisure and healthcare facilities in a vibrant central core. So it’s different at heart.
The big picture for Flaxby Park is a connected community of neighbourhoods, each with its own character, defined by original art and landscaping, guided by a design code to balance creative freedom with a distinctive, overall visual identity.
Residents throughout the Park will be free to enjoy a quiet and undisturbed life style thanks to the comprehensive security system. Its visible presence affirms the development’s country park identity and its additional services make life easier as well as more relaxed.
The site embraces woodland with deer and profuse birdlife, rolling grassland, streams, ponds and small lakes with thriving ecosystems. We will conserve and capitalise upon these superb natural assets to enhance the beauty of the park and the health and well-being of its residents.
