Beal gets OK to build another 600 Goole homes

Beal Homes announced it has secured full planning permission to complete the housebuilder’s largest-ever development, The Greenways in Goole.

The planning approval from East Riding of Yorkshire Council is for 600 homes, giving the green light for Beal to continue to deliver the £210 million development, which will ultimately extend to 806 properties.

Construction of the remainder of the development will represent a further £156 million investment by Beal in one of Yorkshire’s fastest-growing towns.

“Beal has now sold more than 180 homes at The Greenways, with continuing strong demand from a wide range of househunters, including first-time buyers, professionals, families and downsizers,” said Beal.

“Many have been local people achieving their dream of owning a high-quality new home in their home town, with the Beal investment addressing a shortage of new-build properties in Goole …

“The Greenways is on a 73-acre site equivalent to almost 50 football pitches off Rawcliffe Road in Goole and is the largest housing scheme in the town for decades.

“The development is a key element of an ongoing wave of investment in Goole, including Siemens Mobility’s £200m-plus rail village and a worldwide distribution hub for FTSE 100 company Croda, which are creating hundreds of highly-skilled jobs in the town.”

Beal CEO Richard Beal said: “We identified the rich potential of Goole many years ago now, as well as a pent-up demand for high-quality new homes in the town.

“The strong sales we have achieved and the continuing high demand we are seeing at The Greenways has justified our confidence.

“We’re now pleased to have secured full planning permission to continue our long-term investment and the critical contribution we’re making to Goole’s remarkable rejuvenation.”

Beal land director Chris Murphy said: “The Greenways has transformed the quality and variety of housing in Goole, providing luxury, contemporary homes for local residents as well as attracting new people to the town.

“As the largest single development in our company’s history, securing full planning permission for the remainder of The Greenways marks another significant milestone in our delivery of this long-term scheme.”
