More than 400 houses will be built on approximately 35 acres of farmland off Long Lane as part of a scheme involving Beverley-based Lovel Developments and Barratt Homes

The companies worked together on the nearby Queens Court development, which is currently being built and will provide 185 houses when completed.

In all 1,800 homes can be built between Woodmansey Mile and Minster Way by 2029 as part of the masterplan – the largest contribution to a national planning requirement to provide 3,300 new homes in Beverley.

Lovel Developments managing director Philip Lovel said: “Barratt Homes received a very positive response as soon as they released the first properties for sale at Queens Court in July 2020.

“They have made great progress on the site since then and are eager to get to work on the next phases, which will be developed to the same high standards.

“We are working on plans now for additional land which has been allocated under the masterplan and we are confident that the work which we have delivered at Queens Court will demonstrate our capabilities.”

The 400 houses will be accessed by a “spine road” which runs south from Woodmansey Mile through Queens Court.

The scheme consists of a variety of homes including affordable housing and were approved by East Riding Council last July, subject to conditions on details including the layout and appearance of the development.

The plans received the final sign off last month.
