Brighter future for derelict site – Driffield eyesore put up for sale

One of Driffield’s longest standing eyesores may be in for a brighter future after it was put up for sale.

The former White’s Sugar Mill site on Anderson Street has stood derelict for decades.

The land has previously been designated in the East Riding Local Plan for housing development.

Work was undertaken to clear the land some years ago and in 2017, East Riding of Yorkshire Council granted in principle the erection of up to 50 dwellings on the land.

The council considered that the former Sugar Mill was capable of supporting between 14 and 50 dwellings.

Since then however, it has remained untouched, but is now up for sale with York-based commercial property consultants Briggs Burley.

John Burley, from Briggs Burley, told the Wolds Weekly he predicted the one-acre site to be developed for residential purposes.

He added that another 0.3-acre site adjacent to it on Eastgate South is also for sale.

He said: “We are selling the Anderson Street site, as well as a smaller site on Eastgate South in Driffield.

“Both sites are in an excellent location and being so close to the town centre, the most likely use is residential.

“At this stage, we are inviting expressions of interest and will be seeking best offers in due course.”
