£120m Beal development in popular Kingswood community recommended for approval

Plans for a £120m development which would ultimately bring 450 luxury new homes to a popular neighbourhood in Hull has been recommended for approval.

A planning application for a 52-acre site west of Richmond Way in Kingswood has been submitted to Hull City Council by East Yorkshire-based housebuilder Beal Homes.

The “hybrid” application includes full planning permission for the first 214 homes and associated works, as well as outline plans for a further 236 homes.

The planning application also includes engineering works to raise the embankment on the nearby River Hull, and improved drainage measures, to enhance flood resilience for the whole of the Kingswood area.

The works will also include the construction of a new riverside footpath and cycle way for local residents to enjoy.

Hull City Council’s Planning Committee will consider the application on Wednesday, July 3, with planning officers recommending approval.

Beal Land Director Chris Murphy said: “Kingswood is a thriving and growing neighborhood with continuing high demand for new homes.

“This development aims to further enhance the availability of high-quality homes in the area, while also benefitting the whole Kingswood community through the riverbank works.

“Our proposals include two, three and four-bedroom homes to cater for a wide range of homebuyers. In particular, if approved, the development will feature a significant number of two-bedroom homes ideal for first-time buyers, to help more young people get onto the property ladder.”

Over the past 28 years, Beal has delivered more than 1,200 high-quality homes, and associated community facilities, in Kingswood.

The family-run housebuilder has played a major role in making Kingswood one of Hull’s most popular and vibrant neighbourhoods.
