Planning application granted for 200 homes at Brough South

A Reserved Matters Planning application has been approved to build the first phase of residential properties at the Brough South development.

Barratt Homes Yorkshire East was granted consent in respect of the first 200 homes to be built at the development, by East Riding of Yorkshire Council earlier this month.

In total, around 750 homes will be constructed over four phases at the £200m mixed-use residential, retail, leisure and commercial development on the south side of the Hull to Selby railway track.

They will range from two-bedroom starter homes to detached, four-bedroom executive houses.

Brough South will also include a new primary school, healthcare facilities, a supermarket and non-food shops, family restaurants and a variety of new premises for local businesses, enhancing the already thriving East Yorkshire town.  Peter Morris, Development Director of Barratt Homes Yorkshire East, said “We are so pleased that the planning application for Brough South has been approved and we are looking forward to contributing to this significant development for the area in the coming year”.

The development is being brought forward by leading East Yorkshire property developer, the Horncastle Group PLC, on behalf of the Brough South Consortium. The consortium is made up of the developers, local landowners and developers Alma Jordan (Builders) Ltd, Riplingham Estates and BAE Systems.

Ian Hodges, managing director of Horncastle Group PLC, said he was delighted the application had been approved.

He said: “We are really pleased to announce that the planning application was successful and that the first phase of residential development can commence.  Barratt Homes is a nationally recognised name and one that is synonymous with high quality, well designed houses which will be very much in keeping with the wider Brough South development.”

“The homes, along with the leisure and retail offerings we are bringing forward, will provide a fantastic addition to this already popular and bustling East Yorkshire town, making it one of the region’s most attractive places to live.”

Construction work is due to start on the homes in summer 2018, after infrastructure works and land raising operations have been completed.
