Harrogate Spring Water, now owned by Danone, has confirmed it is reverting to its original 2017 plan that covered a smaller area than the 2019 proposals rejected in 2021. The company is now putting together a “Reserved Matters” application which will detail how the new building will look and how the surrounding area will be landscaped.
As a reminder, since 2017 Harrogate Spring Water has had outline planning permission to expand its production facilities on its site on Harlow Moor Road but looked to increase the footprint of those plans with the 2019 application.
Before putting in the proposals to Harrogate Borough Council, Harrogate Spring Water wants to hear from members of the local community about how they would like to see the expansion carried out.
The company will organise a series of public consultation events next month where people will get to have their say on the design and landscaping of the proposed extension and surrounding land. These views will help to shape the final application which will then go on public display before being submitted to the council. We will share full details of any events once received.
There will also be an opportunity for people to have their say via a dedicated webpage at https://www.harrogatespring.com/facility-extension/.
Our main concern will continue to be the substantial loss of tress and public accessible land but will make further comment once the detail has been received and analysed.
