Bright new future for Flaxby Park

The three way venture established by Chris Musgrave, Trevor Cartner and Ann Gloag

Ambitious plans have been unveiled to transform an abandoned golf course into a sustainable Yorkshire community.

The team behind the plans, Flaxby Park Limited, announced today (27 April 2016) that they have reached agreement with the official liquidator to purchase the site of the former Flaxby Golf Course.

Consultation will now begin on Flaxby Park, a new settlement of quality homes covering the housing spectrum, a new school, shops and community facilities in a country park setting.

As well as helping to meet the housing needs of Harrogate, the development will provide hundreds of full time jobs over a decade and a multi-million pound boost to local councils in new homes bonus and council tax payments.

The site covers a 278 acre triangle of countryside West of junction 47 of the A1(M), within easy commuting distance for Harrogate, York and Leeds.

Flaxby Park Ltd. is the company of internationally renowned businesswoman and philanthropist Ann Gloag OBE and regeneration experts Chris Musgrave and Trevor Cartner.

Mrs Gloag, a former nurse and one of Britain's most successful business people, is a well known investor in strategic land throughout the UK and is also the co-founder of the transport giant - Stagecoach.

Cartner and Musgrave have a proven track record in delivering high quality housing and business sites across Britain including Wynyard Park in the North-East and Discovery Park in Kent.

The trio are also behind plans to create a similar sustainable settlement, Stone Hill Park, on the site of the former Manston airport in Kent which they own.

The plans envisage a self-sustaining community complete with school, health centre and shops, within a landscape featuring parkland, cycle and footpaths, water features and retained woodland. A range of high quality homes will be built covering the full spectrum of housing need including affordable and starter homes, family homes, high value executive homes and self build plots.
