Plans for business units and a drive-through coffee shop which could create more than 30 jobs have been submitted by developers working on the second phase of a project to regenerate a derelict site near Beverley.

Lovel Capital Projects is aiming to add the facilities to its proposed development of a filling station and convenience store at the Killingwoldgraves roundabout on the A1079, plans for which were cleared last month after a planning inspector overturned the refusal by East Riding of Yorkshire Council.

Consultants acting on behalf of Lovel said the new features will complement the rest of the development and bring “positive social and economic benefits to the surrounding area”. 

The Humber Local Resilience Forum has declared a major incident due to the ongoing high levels of COVID-19 infection and the extra demand and pressures this is putting on local health and care services across Hull and the East Riding. It says whilst overall community infection rates may be stabilising, the number of staff on sickness absence or isolating is still high and is making it extremely difficult to maintain normal levels of service.

A spokesman told us: “We have implemented a number of measures to try and alleviate some of the pressures; for example Humberside Fire and Rescue Service is expanding the medical response we already provide to older people who fall in their own home in Hull, more widely across the rest of the Humber area.”

And finally, it’s been confirmed that Welsh singer Aled Jones, who achieved huge success with his version of “Walking In The Air” from the animated film The Snowman, will appear in concert at Beverley Minster on Monday March 21.
