A multi-million-pound Government investment has been won by 12 education providers across the Humber region, including Bishop Burton College and East Riding College, which has a campus in Beverley. The financial boost will come from the Skills Accelerator Programme, a pilot initiative, which aims to make technical skills training more responsive to regional employers’ needs. Bishop Burton College’s focus will be on green technology and renewable energy generation within rural farming businesses.

Work has started on preparing the site for a new 90-home development off Poplars Way in Beverley, close to The Westwood. The £23 million scheme for Beal Homes will see two, three and four-bedroom homes as well as three-bedroom bungalows. Called St Mary’s View, almost 600 potential buyers have already registered interest in buying properties, with the first buyers expected to move in next summer.
