Deal for 87 home Skirlaugh site finalised with Peter Ward Homes

The Crown Estate has finalised a deal with Beverley-based developer Peter Ward Homes for a site in Skirlaugh, East Riding of Yorkshire, following an initial agreement in February.


18 November 2015

The scheme, located off Benningholme Lane in Skirlaugh, will provide 87 detached and semi-detached homes, 15 per cent of which will be affordable. Other benefits to the local area include a children’s play area and public open space which will account for almost half of the site.

The development will also provide a welcome boost to local village services and amenities through increased footfall.

We received outline planning consent for the residential development in October 2013. Peter Ward Homes will now progress a detailed planning application for the site.

Steve Melligan, Strategic Land Manager, said: “Having promoted this land through the planning process, working with both the local council and community, we are pleased to have finalised a deal with Beverley house builder Peter Ward Homes. These new homes will deliver a welcome boost to the local economy and help meet local housing need”.

Charles Ward, Land Director at Peter Ward Homes said: “We are delighted to have concluded this deal with The Crown Estate. We expect the demand for homes in this lovely village location to be high and look forward to delivering a development that both new and existing residents will be proud of. The fact we can assist the local community with the affordable housing and public spaces is an added bonus."

We are an independent commercial business established by Act of Parliament and pays our profit to Treasury for the benefit of the nation’s finances. A core focus of The Crown Estate’s business involves actively promoting land across the estate for development, which helps to meet the needs of local communities for new commercial and residential accommodation. Last year we secured consent for 7,000 homes across the country.

Peter Ward Homes, a regional housebuilder, has been providing houses in East Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire since 1978.
