WCN Editorial Team 25 Jan 2019 EUROPE BUILDINGS

UK-based house-builder Beal Homes has submitted a planning application for a £130m residential development in Goole, East Yorkshire, UK.

The project will include the development of 800 homes on a 73-acre site, which is equivalent to almost 50 football pitches.

It will also involve the provision of a new primary school and additional open space. The residential units will be developed over a 15-year period.

Beal Homes stated that the outline planning consent was granted for development of the Goole site in 2016. The site is north of Rawcliffe Road and adjacent to the M62.

Beal Homes CEO Richard Beal said: “We’re excited to have submitted detailed plans for the first phase of what will be a landmark development for our business.

“This will be the largest single development we have ever delivered and will make a major contribution to our ambitious growth strategy.

“We see Goole as an up-and-coming area enjoying substantial investment and economic growth. That stimulus is creating significant demand for high-quality new homes that this development aims to meet.”

With the acquisition of the land, the company has filed a “reserved matters” application for the first phase of 196 open market properties and 10 affordable homes, as well as a main access road and other essential infrastructure to open up the site.

Subject to the planning approval, construction on the first homes will commence later this year. The development will create nearly 2,500 jobs during the course of the development.

Touted to be the largest residential development in the Goole area, the project is expected to make a major contribution to the requirements of the East Riding Local Plan for the delivery of almost 2,000 new homes to be built in Goole up to 2029.

The project will feature an extensive range of Beal’s in-house designed properties, from starter homes to four bedroom family houses.

Beal added: “This major residential scheme is a huge investment into Goole, complementing commercial developments by Siemens and others. New highly-skilled jobs and business opportunities are coming to Goole and we’re providing the high-quality, contemporary homes needed for local families and people attracted to the area.

“As well creating desirable new homes for people working in and around Goole, the development site is also perfectly located for travelling to work in Hull, Leeds, York, Doncaster and Sheffield, all of which can be reached in well under an hour.”
