Beale gets go-ahead for 500-home Immingham plan

Housebuilder Beal Homes is to bring more than 500 new homes to the growing community on the south bank of the Humber after plans were given the green light.

The Highfields housing development on a 57-acre-site in Immingham will provide new two, three and four-bedroom homes for the town, which is playing a key role in the Humber’s growing status as a magnet for investment.

The £105 million development will complement investment into the area from other blue chip businesses.

Having secured planning permission from North East Lincolnshire Council, subject to conditions, the family-owned housebuilder is now accepting registrations for a forthcoming launch of the development.

The development, on a site off Stallingborough Road, will feature a total of 525 homes as well as areas of public space including two equipped children’s play areas.

Immingham is home to a series of blue chip businesses, including Ørsted, Phillips 66, Centrica and Wren Kitchens.

Chris Murphy, Land Director of East Yorkshire-based Beal, said: “We’re delighted to have gained planning approval so we can move forward to delivering these much-needed homes in North East Lincolnshire.

“We would like to thank the members of the planning committee who voted unanimously to approve the plans and were complimentary about the quality of the development as well as the amount of open space we have incorporated into it.

“This development is a major vote of confidence in the area which has a strong pent-up demand for new homes as well as potential for further growth, driven by major investment on the south bank of the Humber.”

Beal Sales and Marketing Director Sue Waudby said: “We’re excited to be able to offer house hunters the opportunity to own a luxury new Beal home in this popular and up-and-coming area.

“We’re expecting demand to be extremely high, so we’re encouraging prospective homebuyers to register their interest now to ensure they are the first to know when these stunning homes are about to be launched.”
