East Yorkshire-based Beal Homes has submitted detailed plans for the first phase of a large-scale development of 800 homes in the housebuilder’s largest ever single scheme.
The housebuilder intends to build houses on a 73-acre site in Goole, East Yorkshire, over a 15-year period, creating a development with an estimated value of £130m.
Beal Homes Chief Executive 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.
Outline planning consent was granted for development of the Goole site in 2016 and now, having secured the land, Beal has submitted 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.
Richard Beal continued: “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.”
Dependent on planning approval, it is expected construction of the first homes will begin this summer.
Covering an area equivalent to almost 50 football pitches, the site is adjacent to the M62 and the development will include the provision of a new primary school and additional open space.
The scheme will feature an extensive range of Beal’s in-house designed properties, from starter homes to four-bedroom family houses. Over the course of the development, Beal’s investment will secure the employment of almost 2,500 people.
News of the Goole development follows Beal’s 50th anniversary year, which was the family-owned company’s busiest ever. Beal delivered more than 250 new homes in 2018 – a new record for the business – across a series of developments and aims to achieve 300 completions this year.
Beal has been named Yorkshire Housebuilder of the Year three times in as many years.
