Decision made on 122-home and care development for Bridlington

Planning permission has been granted for 54 affordable homes and a 68-apartment extra care development in Bridlington.

The scheme has been brought forward by Esh Construction in a deal worth £25 million in partnership with Housing 21 and Yorkshire Housing. Earmarked for land off Pinfold Lane in the north of the resort, the inter-generational scheme meets an identified need for affordable housing in the area and homes for over 55s.

A three-storey extra care building containing one and two-bedroom apartments and communal facilities, including a restaurant, hair salon and a resident lounge, will be managed by Housing 21. A second development in East Riding, it will allow people to live independently in their own home, while accessing on-site care and support should they need it.

For Yorkshire Housing, Esh will build a mix of two and three-bedroom houses, two-bedroom bungalows and one-bedroom ‘walk up’ apartments for affordable tenures, including affordable rent, shared ownership and rent to buy.

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.”

Almost half of the homes will be of timber frame construction, with modern methods of construction deployed.

Kathryn Gare, head of acquisitions at Yorkshire Housing, said: “We’re delighted that planning has been granted for our latest project, where we’ll be building 54 new homes in partnership with Esh, as well an extra care apartment block for Housing 21.

“When finished, this site will provide over 50 families with high-quality affordable homes and bring us even closer towards our target of delivering 8,000 new homes. The properties will be made available for affordable / social rent, shared ownership and rent to buy.”

Work is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2024.

Deborah Hope, head of development at Housing 21, said: “We are delighted that planning has been approved and look forward to working in partnership with Esh, who we have already collaborated with on three developments across the North. Our new extra care scheme will provide much needed, high-quality accommodation to support local older people and their changing needs as well as being a great addition to the local economy.”
