Gleeson Homes approved to build new houses in Bridlington

Scunthorpe based housebuilder Gleeson Homes has received planning permission to build 164 houses on Pinfold Lane in Bridlington.  The brownfield site, previously used as an informal scrap yard with large amounts of fly tipping, is to become a mixture of brand new 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes, all with a garage or driveway and front and rear gardens.  The development is part of the East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s wider residential allocation plan across the north of Bridlington.

Gleeson will soon be selling new homes with prices anticipated to start from £104,995.  The Government backed Help to Buy scheme will ensure that many of these homes will be cheaper to buy than local rent levels.

Commenting on the decision Bryan Simpson, Regional Director for Gleeson Homes said “We’re delighted that the Council has given us the go ahead to re-develop the site.  I think local people will be pleased to hear that our homes are extremely affordable.  We are confident that the new homes will kick start the wider development of the area and would be delighted to be involved in future phases.”

Gleeson are looking for reliable, reputable labour and sub-contractors to work on these exciting new homes, including applications from local young people who are interested in the Gleeson Apprenticeship Scheme.

Gleeson have recently been voted the most sustainable company in the UK, due to the housebuilder’s environmentally friendly materials such as gravel on driveways, commitment to Living Wage and their Community Matters Programme.  This involves inviting junior sports teams to apply for sponsorship, Design a Bedroom competitions at nearby schools and other initiatives in the local community such as the YourWatch scheme, Gleeson’s own online alternative to Neighbourhood Watch.
