Full approval recommended for scheme of more than 500 homes

A £105m development which would create more than 500 new homes on the south bank of the Humber has been recommended for full planning approval.

The proposals for the 57-acre site in Immingham have been submitted by regional housebuilder, Beal Homes.

The “reserved matters” planning application for 525 homes, with landscaping, areas of public open space and associated works, on land off Stallingborough Road, goes before North East Lincolnshire’s Planning Committee on Wednesday, June 12, with planning officers recommending the proposals should be passed. 

The development will provide a range of two, three and four-bedroom homes.

Chris Murphy, land director at East Yorkshire-based Beal, said: “The site is allocated for housing under North East Lincolnshire Council’s Local Plan and already has outline planning approval for 525 homes, so this application is seeking full approval for the detailed layout and design.

“The development will enhance the quality, availability and choice of homes in the area, to meet increasing demand in a community benefiting from significant investment and job creation.”

Beal notes its proposed development is less than a 10-minute walk into Immingham town centre and offers a “natural extension” to existing housing in the town.
