Work set to begin on 400 home phase of Beverley housing development

Work is set to begin within the coming weeks on the next phase of a project to create 1,800 homes in Beverley.

Lovel Developments, based in Yorkshire, has announced that Barratt Homes is set to begin construction on the next phase of its Long Lane development.

This phase will create more than 400 houses across 35 acres of land, just over 20 per cent of the homes expected to be created overall.

Philip Lovel, managing director of Lovel Developments, commented: “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 masterplan allows for the construction of 1,800 homes between Woodmansey Mile and Minster Way by 2029 as the largest contribution to a national planning requirement to provide 3,300 new homes in Beverley.

Daniel Smith, managing director of Barratt Yorkshire East Division, said: “Since we launched Queens Court last July we have experienced high demand from people who have been waiting for the opportunity to move to a location which is high profile and high quality.

“It’s nearly seven years since consultation work started and the level of interest we’ve received shows how eager people are to see what we have brought to Beverley.

“We’re delighted with the demand at Queens Court and we want to start work as soon as we can on the new sites which will go a long way towards delivering the target set by the masterplan.”
