Esh secures Bridlington consent
Planning permission has been granted for 54 affordable homes and a 68-apartment extra care development two miles from the town centre.
The scheme has been brought forward by Esh Construction in a land-led deal worth £25m in partnership with registered social providers Yorkshire Housing and retirement living specialist Housing 21.
Esh’s plans are for a development off Pinfold Lane, north of the town. The scheme includes bungalows, while the complex will have a cafe-restaurant on site along with a hair salon.
The apartments in the scheme will be in a three-storey building, while some homes will be built using timber frames.
Laura Devaney, land and partnerships director at Esh Construction, said: “This land-led scheme has been long in the making, therefore we are delighted to receive the go-ahead from the planners.
“With an ageing population it is important that we are building more new extra care housing to satisfy the needs of later life living options, as well as helping to meet the Government’s affordable housing targets.
“The development in Bridlington is an exciting project and we look forward to getting work underway next year.”
