Legal & General gets green light for 154 new modular homes
The modular homes division of Legal & General has obtained planning consent for a new 154-home development in North Yorkshire.
Legal & General Modular Homes has secured permission to deliver 154 new homes using modular construction at an eight-acre site on Portholme Road in Selby.
Comprising up to 30 per cent affordable housing, the Portholme Road scheme will be developed on the site of the former Selby civic centre, which has been vacant for seven years.
Delivering a mix of terraced houses and low-rise apartments, the development will provide up to 130 jobs across the supply chain, and will see the modular construction specialist recruit a further 50 employees to support the scheme.
Rosie Toogood, CEO of Legal & General Modular Homes, commented: “Using modular construction, Legal & General will be able to deliver high quality homes at a much faster rate than through traditional construction. In a post Covid-19 crisis environment, the speed of delivery will be more important than ever before.
“Our journey to revolutionise the UK’s construction industry is well underway, and planning consent at Portholme Road, Selby is testament to this. This scheme, along with our proposals at Bonnington Walk in Bristol, will showcase the benefits of modular construction.
“Achieving planning permission for this Selby scheme is a fantastic milestone for the business, and a major achievement for the team, particularly set against the current backdrop.”
