The site is located on land north and west of Benninghome Lane playing field, Skirlaugh, and will deliver 87 new detached and semi-detached homes, a proportion of which will be affordable. The development also includes a children's play area and new public open space, accounting for 45 per cent of the development site.

The development will provide a significant boost to the local economy and support the viability of local shops and services.

Steve Melligan, Strategic Land Manager said: "We are extremely pleased with East Riding planning committee's decision to approve our plans for Skirlaugh. The development will meet an identified housing need and enhance recreational facilities for the wider community. The scheme will also offer a real boost for the local economy. We will now be working hard to deliver this scheme and its associated benefits."

The approval is subject to the finalisation of the s106 agreement between The Crown Estate and East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
