Work starts on luxury homes in £15m development near Hull

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 8 Nov 2018

Work is starting on a luxury new £15m housing development on a leafy Beverley site.

Beal Homes is set to build 55 family homes on land next to Keldmarsh Primary School, in Woodmansey Mile. Work has already started on site infrastructure, with the construction of the three and four-bedroom new homes due to start early next year.

The development is named St John's Fold after St. John of Beverley, a bishop who founded the town by building a monastery.

Chris Murphy, Beal Associate land director, says: “Beverley is one of the most popular places to live in East Yorkshire and well beyond.

“St. John’s Fold occupies a prime location within the town.

“It’s close to Beverley town centre and just a few minutes to transport links to Hull, York and Leeds.

“We’re already working on the site infrastructure and will soon start on the main access road.

“We aim to have completed the development within two years.”

There will be a choice of 11 house types at the new development, which is on the south side of the town.

Sue Waudby, marketing and sales director at East Yorkshire-based Beal, says: “We’re thrilled to be able to reveal our exclusive new Beverley development.

“Beverley is a beautiful and very popular place and we’ve been looking for the perfect location for a development in the town for quite some time.

“St. John’s Fold is in a lovely leafy setting on Woodmansey Mile, close to Long Lane, and within easy walking distance of all Beverley’s fabulous attractions, shops and restaurants.

“The development is likely to be especially popular with families due to its close proximity to Keldmarsh Primary and Beverley Grammar – both very good schools.”

The site, which is a short walk from Beverley Minster, is next to the in-demand Keldmarsh Primary School, which was rated "outstanding" by Ofsted last year.

East Riding ward Councillor David Elvidge says St John's Fold is the latest development to come forward on the south side of Beverley, where land is allocated in the East Riding Local Plan for some 2,400 new homes in the coming years, up to 2029.

Cllr Elvidge says: "Sites will come forward piecemeal, as various developers try and access individual sites.

"Each one comes with a planning application that can be supported or opposed.

"We do seem to be getting quite a lot at the moment but it will take a number of years for all the sites across the town to be developed."

Beal Homes says every property at St. John’s Fold will be designed for modern life, boasting open, spacious, contemporary living areas.

As with all Beal developments, buyers will have the opportunity to create their own bespoke dream home with Beal’s personalised design service and extensive range of fixtures, fittings and finishes.
