Construction of the first phase of residential development has got underway at Brough South.
Barratt Homes Yorkshire East are creating 200 new homes at their development, Harrier Chase, in the first wave of building work at the site. The development is located in the east of the town on the south side of the Hull to Selby railway track.
The new properties will range from two-bedroom starter homes to detached, four-bedroom executive houses. They will be in easy reach of new amenities the development is bringing to the thriving East Yorkshire town.
As well as the residential offering, the £200m Brough South development includes a new primary school, healthcare facilities, supermarket and non-food shops, family restaurants and space for local businesses to set up and grow.
Ian Hodges, managing director of the Horncastle Group PLC, described the start of residential construction as a ‘milestone’ in the history of the development.
The Horncastle Group is bringing Brough South forward on behalf of the Brough South Consortium which is made up of the developers, local landowners, Alma Jordan (Builders) Ltd, Riplingham Estates and BAE Systems.
Mr Hodges said: “A huge amount of work has been completed to get us to this point, both in terms of designing and planning the development and significant infrastructure and land raising work.
“To see that work culminating in new homes emerging from the ground will be fantastic, and an opportunity for local people to finally see this exciting development take shape.”
Steve Mattinson, Construction Director at Barratt Homes Yorkshire East, added: “We’re delighted to have broken ground at our new Harrier Chase development in Brough, it is a significant moment in the creation of the site.
“As well as building new homes for the area, it’s fantastic that our development has helped to ensure a new school and other much needed public amenities will be put in place for local people. We’re looking forward progressing with the build and watching the new development take shape over the coming months.”
