Barratt Homes named as Housebuilder at Brough South

BARRATT Homes Yorkshire East is to build 200 new houses in Brough, in partnership with the Brough South Consortium.

The company will work with the consortium to develop the first residential phase of Brough South, a £200m mixed-use residential, retail, leisure and commercial scheme on the south side of the Hull to Selby railway track.

In total, around 750 new homes will be built as part of the development in four phases over the next decade, ranging from two-bedroom starter homes to detached, four-bedroom executive houses.

Brough South will also include a new primary school, healthcare facilities, a supermarket and non-food shops, family restaurants and a variety of new premises for local businesses, enhancing the thriving East Yorkshire town.

Site access will be via Brough Relief Road, which connects Moor Road in the east of town to the development site. Work on phase two of Brough Relief Road started in January this year and is due to finish in October.

Ian Hodges, managing director of Horncastle Group PLC, which is acting for the consortium, said he was delighted to announce Barratt Homes as the first house builder on the scheme.

He said: “Barratt Homes is a nationally recognised name and one that is synonymous with high quality, beautifully designed houses. We are extremely pleased to have the company on board and know they will produce homes to a standard befitting of our exciting Brough South development.”

Site preparation work, including work to raise the ground to mitigate the risk of flooding and the provision of utility infrastructure, is due to start soon and is forecast to be complete by June next year.  This will create a serviced site for Barratt Homes to get started on construction in summer 2018.

Mr Hodges said. “We would expect to see rapid progress with the first homes being ready in the autumn or winter 2018.”

Peter Morris, development director at Barratt Homes Yorkshire East, said: “We will very shortly be submitting a reserved matters planning application for 200 dwellings that responds to the existing outline consent.

“We are looking forward to working with the council to ensure that the application runs smoothly and that we are ready to start on site once the preparatory works are complete so that we can continue to deliver much needed housing.”

Work started on the Brough Relief Road

Construction work on phase two of the Brough Relief Road has got underway this week.

Once completed, the road will connect Moor Road in the east of the town to land on the south of the railway line, opening it up for the development of Brough South, a £200m mixed use residential, retail, leisure and commercial scheme being brought forward by the Horncastle Group PLC on behalf of the Brough South Consortium.

The work is being carried out by North Ferriby civil engineering specialist CR Reynolds in partnership with East Riding of Yorkshire Council and Network Rail, and is expected to be finished in October.

As well as the new link road, it will also include a bridge over the railway line, which, on completion of phase three of Brough Relief Road, this will relieve some of the traffic pressure from Skillings Lane by providing an alternative route to the Humber Enterprise Park.

Ian Hodges, managing director of the Horncastle Group, welcomed the news, saying it marked the beginning of the next chapter of Brough’s ongoing success story.

Mr Hodges said:

“The start of work to complete Brough Relief Road is a major step forward in turning Brough South into a reality. It will provide access for development without adding further congestion to the centre of the town.

“Brough South will be a tremendous asset to the Brough, Elloughton and Welton conurbation and will bring, among other things, a host of new homes, a fantastic new school, new healthcare facilities, a supermarket and other non-food shops, family restaurants and a variety of new premises for local businesses. It will create more than 700 new, permanent jobs once completed and 200 jobs during the construction phase, and we’re very excited to see it get underway.”

Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said:

“We’re delighted to be working with our partners to bring this long-standing project to fruition. When complete, it will be a huge benefit to the area, opening up the enterprise zone and creating hundreds of new jobs.”

Andy Gaze, joint managing director of C.R. Reynolds, said: “The Brough Relief Road will pave the way for the Brough South development and is therefore an essential part of the wider scheme.

“We are very much looking forward to starting work on this important project, and we will do our best to ensure the minimum amount of disruption for residents living close by.”
