Leading Yorkshire-based 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.”

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.

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.
