900 new homes approved for Beverley
Planners have given the go-ahead for 900 homes to be built on almost 100 acres of mainly agricultural land in Beverley.
The development, over the next decade, will take in land south of Beverley Parklands and the leisure centre and stretch to Minster Way and the railway line.
East Riding councillors approved the scheme by Strata Homes and Linden Homes, which is the biggest ever in the county, subject to the developers formally agreeing to a financial package covering funding for a footbridge over the railway line, open space and education provision in the area, an upgrade to nearby Spark Mill Lane and the delivery of 90 affordable homes as part of the overall development.
Councillors also insisted on a park and ride scheme being included in an early phase of the scheme.
The first phase will feature 325 new homes, including 82 two-bedroom properties, 89 three-bedroom homes and 155 properties with four bedrooms. As yet, the mix of properties in stages two and three have yet to be decided and details will be agreed with the council at a later stage.
