The partners behind proposals for a housing development on the southern edge of Beverley will present a public exhibition next week as part of their ongoing consultation programme.
Lovel Developments, based in Beverley, will reveal the latest plans and will also bring together experts who are working on key elements of the project. The event will take place at Keldmarsh Primary School, Woodmansey Mile, Beverley, from 4.30pm until 7pm on Wednesday July 23.
The proposed site is inside the boundary of Beverley’s new southern by-pass and is allocated for housing development with a capacity of around 1,800 homes.
The proposals from Lovel Developments would include affordable housing, significant public open space and community facilities in the shape of a new primary school. They would also protect and enhance the landscape setting of the town, including the views towards Beverley Minster.
Philip Lovel, Managing Director of Lovel Developments, said the exhibition will feature a display of the current plans which the company hopes to submit to East Riding of Yorkshire Council later this month.
He said they have been modified as the result of feedback which followed a presentation to Woodmansey Parish Council in April. Mr Lovel will attend the event accompanied by a planning consultant, a highways consultant, an architect and a drainage engineer.
He said: “It will be an informal event to enable people to view the current plans and speak to members of our development team.
“After we met Woodmansey Parish Council one issue which emerged was the possible closure of Long Lane to through traffic, with views expressed in favour and against. Our plans show Long Lane remaining open to traffic but we recognise there may be a need to close it depending on the outcome of further consultation as we work to deliver proposals which are acceptable to local residents.”
