Land raising work paves way for construction of new Brough South school

Construction of a new primary school at Brough South can now get underway after local civil engineering company CR Reynolds completed land raising work on site.

The Hessle-based company is also building an access road to the site, which will be the home of the new primary school, which will be a feeder school to South Hunsley Secondary School and Sixth Form College.

West Yorkshire building company RH Fullwood has been appointed by the Department of Education as the main contractor on the scheme, and are due to start work immediately.

The school will form an important part of the wider Brough South – a £200m mixed residential, retail, leisure and commercial scheme to be built on land between the railway line and the Brough aerodrome.

Once completed, the primary school will be managed by Education Alliance, a multi-school trust which also includes South Hunsley and Malet Lambert.

It will be single-storey, contemporary style, and consists of a reception class and six year classes each catering for a maximum of 30 pupils.

Brough South is being brought forward by leading East Yorkshire property developer, the Horncastle Group PLC, on behalf of the Brough South Consortium, which is made up of the Horncastle Group, local landowners and developers Alma Jordan (Builders) Ltd, Riplingham Estates Ltd and BAE Systems Ltd.

Ian Hodges, managing director of the Horncastle Group, said: “The land raising work has been completed on time which means construction can now get underway. The primary school forms a central part of the Brough South scheme so we’re delighted it is moving forward.”

Water Basin provides Home for Wildlife at Brough South

Water Basin at Brough South creates home for wildlife

Enhancing the habitat for wildlife is priority for the Brough South development. That’s why work is currently ongoing to provide a wildlife-friendly water basin and other ecological enhancements on the former airfield to the south of the development site.

The work, being carried out by VHE Construction, has been designed by BWB in consultation with Natural England and East Riding Council, and will increase biodiversity by creating a habitat for voles, waders, ground nesting birds and other wildlife, on what is an important route for migratory birds.

As part of the work, a fence will be put up around the public footpath that leads through the site and down to the Humber. Users can learn all about the importance of the habitat from information boards which will be erected.

Brough South is a mixed-use residential, retail, leisure and commercial scheme being brought forward by the Horncastle Group PLC on behalf of the Brough South Consortium.

Ian Hodges, managing director of the Horncastle Group PLC, said: “The water basin and other ecological enhancements will create a home for wildlife and increase biodiversity. The Humber, adjacent, is an SSSI and the basin will serve the birds associated with that.”

CR Reynolds Appointed to carry out Infrastructure work at Hunsley Primary

Hunsley PrimaryLocal contractor CR Reynolds has been appointed to undertake infrastructure work for the site of Hunsley Primary – a new primary school that will form an important component of the Brough South development.

Work being undertaken by the Hessle-based company includes building an access road to the site, and the formation of a development platform to ensure the building is lifted out of the flood zone.

Scheduled to be completed by January 2018, the work at will enable the Education & Skills Funding Agency to bring Hunsley Primary forward.

This is the second contract CR Reynolds has won in relation to the Brough South development.

The company is also completing Phase 2 of the Brough South Relief Road, which connects Moor Road in the east of the town to land on the south of the railway line.

Once completed, the school will be managed by Education Alliance, a multi-school trust also including South Hunsley and Malet Lambert.

The school will be single-storey, contemporary style, and consist of a reception class and six year classes, each catering for a maximum of 30 pupils.

It will form part 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.

Brough Traffic Disruption Minimised during Land Raising Work

Vital land-raising work at Brough South is being carried out in such as a way as to minimise traffic disruption to residents and motorists in the town.

The vast majority of material used to raise the land has been recycled from excavations of the development site itself, removing the need to import materials which would have a detrimental effect on traffic flow.

A small quantity of material will be imported from nearby Melton Park, however this unlikely to have any impact on traffic in Brough, Elloughton and Welton in peak times.

Land raising is necessary to alleviate the risk of flooding at the Brough South development.

The work, carried out by VHE Construction, will see the development site raised to a platform level of 6.33m above sea level, before building work can get underway.

The work has commenced and is forecast to finished in June 2018.

Brough South is a mixed-use residential, retail, leisure and commercial scheme being brought forward by the Horncastle Group PLC on behalf of the Brough South Consortium.

Ian Hodges, managing director of the Horncastle Group PLC, said: “As a responsible developer, we’re keen to cause as little disruption as possible to residents and motorists in Brough.

“That’s why we’ve decided to recycle the material from the development site instead of importing it from elsewhere for this initial phase.”

Brough Relief Road on course to be completed by Christmas

Phase Two of Brough Relief Road, an integral infrastructure project to serve the development, is on schedule to be completed by Christmas.

Once finished, the road will connect Moor Road to land on the south of the railway line, paving the way for the £200m Brough South development.

Last month, a new bridge across the railway line was lifted into place, connecting Brough’s east end with the former airfield for the first time.

Work will continue throughout the autumn, and is due to complete before the end of the year.

Phase Three of the project, which will get underway next year, will link Brough Relief Road to Humber Entreprise Park, easing traffic congestion in the centre of the town.

Brough South is a mixed-use residential, retail, leisure and commercial scheme being brought forward by the Horncastle Group PLC on behalf of the Brough South Consortium.

Ian Hodges, managing director of the Horncastle Group PLC, said: “We’re delighted that Brough Relief Road is running to schedule and will be completed by Christmas.

“Once it is finished, work can commence on the exciting Brough South development, which will bring a host of new amenities to the town.”

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.”
