Plans for 400 homes approved by East Yorkshire committee

A Yorkshire planning committee has approved plans for a scheme which will create more than 400 homes.

Lovel Developments, based in Beverley, submitted the plans to East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s planning committee, and is aiming to start work on the project early in 2021.

The plans are the next stage of a project to build around 1,800 homes to the south of the town.

Work has already started on the construction of 185 homes at Queens Court, an area to the north of the new sites, following approval last year of another application by Lovel Developments and Shirethorn Ltd.

Philip Lovel, managing director of the company, commented: “We have worked closely with the council, landowners and key stakeholders as well as consulting widely with the public to come up with proposals which are acceptable and we will now work with the house builder on the details of the application with a view to beginning construction early in 2021.

“We also hope to submit planning applications for other phases of the wider development including large areas of land and smaller pockets.

“As a company which has its roots in Beverley we are delighted to have the opportunity to shape one of the most significant housing developments in the area.

“The overall scheme is a complicated project which has involves a number of different landowners.

“We started the consultation six years ago so it is exciting to see Queens Court taking shape now with the next phase coming soon.”
