Leading regional housebuilder Beal Homes has submitted plans for a £105m development creating a highly-desirable new community on the south bank of the Humber.
Family-owned Beal has submitted a planning application for more than 500 new homes on a 57-acre site at Immingham in North East Lincolnshire.
The proposed development will provide a range of two, three and four-bedroom homes to support major investment in the area and underlines the company’s commitment to economic development within the region.
The Port of Immingham is a key gateway for trade to and from Europe and beyond and the area is playing a key role in the Humber’s growing status as a magnet for investment, capitalising on the region’s reputation as the UK’s Energy Estuary.
The south bank of the Humber is home to a series of blue chip businesses, including Ørsted, Phillips 66, Centrica and Wren Kitchens, with many of them investing in new facilities and projects, creating new, skilled jobs in the area.
That, in turn, has generated growing demand for high-quality new homes in and around Immingham.
Beal has submitted a “reserved matters” planning application to North East Lincolnshire Council for 525 homes, with landscaping, areas of public open space and associated works, on land off Stallingborough Road, close to the centre of Immingham.
The site already has outline planning approval for 525 homes, so the new application is seeking consent for the detailed design and layout of the development.
The proposed development features a wide variety of homes, from two-bedroom terraced starter homes to four-bedroom detached properties, reflecting local demand and catering for a broad range of homebuyers.
Richard Beal, Chief Executive of East Yorkshire-based Beal, said: “This application sets out our plans to bring hundreds of much-needed, high-quality new homes to Immingham.
“It represents a major vote of confidence in the housing market in the town and the wider area. We see Immingham as a place with strong pent-up demand for new homes as well as potential for further growth, driven by major investment on the south bank of the Humber.
“We propose to deliver this development over coming years, meaning we will be investing millions of pounds into the area year after year, creating new jobs in construction and supporting services.
“The plans are for a wide range of properties, including starter homes that will enable local first-time buyers to take their first step onto the housing ladder.”
The development is less than a 10-minute walk into Immingham town centre, which has a wide range of services, including retail, leisure, hospitality and healthcare facilities, with direct access via an existing footpath. It is also within easy walking distance of bus stops, with regular services to Grimsby.
Beal Land Director Chris Murphy said: “We have worked closely with planning officers at North East Lincolnshire Council and other key stakeholders to develop and refine these proposals.
“The site is allocated for housing under North East Lincolnshire Council’s Local Plan and has outline planning approval for 525 homes, so this application is seeking final approval for the detailed layout and design of the development.
“It offers a natural extension to existing housing in Immingham and will enhance the quality, availability and choice of homes in the town.”
Beal is the region’s leading independent housebuilder, having delivered scores of prestigious developments in Hull, East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, over the past 55 years.
The business is at the forefront of regeneration across the region, with Beal playing an integral part in many of the area’s most significant large-scale development projects.
In Hull, Beal has played a major role in creating one of Hull’s most popular neighbourhoods. The housebuilder has delivered more than 1,200 high-quality homes in Kingswood and is now the only independent residential developer building in the area.
Beal is also part of a joint venture with commercial developer Wykeland Group delivering the £100m-plus transformation of the Fruit Market waterfront area, in partnership with Hull City council. This has included a high-quality development of mews-style homes which has raised the bar for modern city living in Hull.
Beal is currently delivering one of the region’s largest residential developments, The Greenways in Goole. The £210m development of 800 homes is at the forefront of Goole’s exciting rejuvenation, supporting an ongoing wave of investment by companies such as Siemens Mobility which is creating hundreds of skilled jobs in the East Yorkshire town.
In Lincolnshire, the housebuilder has an outstanding track record of creating new communities of exceptional quality across the county, including the Burton Waters inland marina, near Lincoln, and has current developments in Welton, north of Lincoln, and Gainsborough, North Lincolnshire.
Beal has won a host of awards recognising the quality of its homes and developments as well as the uniquely-personal home design service enjoyed by every buyer. Most recently Beal was named Best Regional Developer in The Yorkshires Residential Real Estate Awards.
