Green light for £60m development as Beal growth gathers speed.
The East Yorkshire-based housebuilder has gained reserved matters planning approval for a £60m development of 350 homes in Welton, on the northern edge of Lincoln, which will be one of the company’s largest schemes to date.
The development will feature 263 open market properties catering for a wide range of buyers and 15 affordable homes. In addition, the scheme will also deliver 72 specialist retirement homes developed by Lincoln-based Lace Housing, which provides housing support services for older people in Lincolnshire and surrounding areas.
The development will feature a mix of two-, three- and four-bedroom homes. The Beal properties will include 24 bungalows, reflecting Lincolnshire’s popularity as a retirement location.
Having been granted outline planning approval in 2015, Beal has now gained reserved matters consent from West Lindsey District Council for detailed plans.
The development will cover 72 acres, including a 22-acre green space with a recreational area, to include a woodland walk, and is just a few minutes’ drive from the historic centre of Lincoln.
Beal Chairman and Managing Director Richard Beal said: “We’re delighted to have been given the green light for this exciting development, which will be delivered over the next five to seven years. The scale of this scheme reflects our continuing growth and capability to deliver ever-larger developments, while retaining the family ethos and highly-personal service our customers value so much.
Beal is currently continuing the phased development of The Swale in Gainsborough which, when completed, will feature 186 homes. The company has been named as Yorkshire Housebuilder of the Year three times in as many years.
