Keyland Developments Ltd, the property trading arm of Kelda Group and sister company to Yorkshire Water, has secured planning permission from East Riding of Yorkshire Council for a residential development of up to 126 affordable homes on land off Scarborough Road in Bridlington.
The 100% affordable housing scheme is on a circa 10-acre site, in a sustainable residential area, creating an extension to Bridlington.
Planning permission has been granted for the development of up to 126 homes on the site including affordable housing, with the construction planned for two, three and four-bedroom properties and an area of public space. New vehicular access will be created off the A165 Scarborough Road.
The scheme adopts Keyland’s Six Capitals model of sustainable development, an approach which represents a more complete, realistic, and holistic assessment of the total value generated. The model is designed to maximise the potential of the land and deliver significant additional benefits to residents to include a wider choice in housing typologies, tenures, and delivery mechanisms.
Matthew Turnbull, Planning & Development Manager at Keyland Developments Ltd, said; “We are delighted to secure planning at Scarborough Road to increase the residential offering in Bridlington and provide new residents with a host of added benefits. The 100% affordable scheme will provide a significant boost to the provision of affordable housing in Bridlington, while the construction of the development could support around 211 jobs, generating a GVA or more than £10 million.”
Established in 1987, Keyland operates across the region and has a successful track record of regenerating surplus land and property from Yorkshire Water’s portfolio. In addition to its work transforming former Yorkshire Water land, the team also works alongside independent landowners, corporates, or regulated bodies to overcome obstacles to development on strategic sites in order to facilitate regeneration by securing planning consent for future use.
