Chris Murphy, land director at East Yorkshire-based Beal, said: “The site is allocated for housing under North East Lincolnshire Council’s Local Plan and already has outline planning approval for 525 homes, so this application is seeking full approval for the detailed layout and design.

“The development will enhance the quality, availability and choice of homes in the area, to meet increasing demand in a community benefiting from significant investment and job Creation.”

The proposed development is less than a 10-minute walk into Immingham town centre. The developers added that the project offers a “natural extension” to existing housing in the town.
