Beverley housing scheme marks biggest land deal in developer’s history

An acquisition deal with a development value of around £180 million has now been completed on 90 acres of land which will provide 900 new homes for Beverley in East Yorkshire.

This marks the largest acquisition in the history of house builder Linden Homes East Yorkshire, with the land at Beverley South being developed jointly with Strata Homes.

It is expected that work will start on site this month, beginning with the construction of a new roundabout off Minster Way – with the first homes due for completion early next year.

The scheme will deliver a range of two, three and four-bedroom homes across the development, and a much-needed Park and Ride scheme for the town, at a cost of around £5 million, developed as part of the Phase 2 works.

Linden Homes East Yorkshire land director Matthew Barker said: “This has been a complicated scheme that has required extensive negotiations with the Local Authority, land owners and agents over a number of years in order to bring the scheme forward. East Riding Council granted planning consent for up to 900 units on the site this January.

“This site will deliver a backbone to our business with up to 10 years of development; and is the largest acquisition in the East Yorkshire business’s history.”

The proposed development site was identified as a key growth area within the adopted East Riding Local plan in July to provide a range of land uses including housing, employment, open space, a park and ride facility and associated infrastructure.
