York residents are being invited to have their say on plans for a 300-home development on the former Rowntree factory site on Haxby Road.
Developer Latimer has already started work transforming the old factory into new affordable homes, which will be called The Cocoa Works.
Now it has drawn up plans for the neighbouring brownfield site.
Cocoa West proposes almost 300 “much-needed high-quality and affordable homes”, together with green open spaces for leisure and recreation, a children’s play area and crèche facilities.
It will comprise homes for private sale, shared ownership and rent, with a minimum of 20% being affordable housing.
As Latimer prepares for the planning process it is asking local people to review the plans and provide their feedback.

Latimer is the development arm of Clarion Housing Group. Director Richard Cook said: “We’re excited to be working with the city of York and local people to develop our plans for Cocoa West which we hope will become a vibrant and thriving new neighbourhood, integrating with and complementing our Cocoa Works development.
“We want to create a high-quality environment, with accessible and communal spaces and places that will benefit the whole community, not just the future residents of Cocoa West.
“As such, the plans include a strong focus on green spaces and connectivity to ensure this is a place to be enjoyed by all.”
