Large local developments

Where can I find details on large schemes and developments happening locally?

Details on some of the larger schemes that the council is currently involved in are set out below: 

Beverley Bypass

Work has now started on building a new bypass for Beverley, also known as the southern relief road. When completed, it will be known as Minster Way. The new 1.6 mile road will connect the A164 at Morrisons roundabout to the A1174 near Figham. A drawing showing the location of the new bypass is available to download below:

The new road forms part of the 'Beverley Integrated Transport Plan' and is being funded by the Department for Transport and the council. When the road is complete it will provide a route around Beverley for through traffic, reducing the number of cars travelling through the town centre. This will reduce queues and congestion in Beverley and improve the environment for pedestrians and cyclists with a shared use footway/cycleway running along the length of the road.

The bypass will be completed by early 2015.

The roundabout is being paid for through the Department for Transport’s Local Pinch Point Fund following a successful funding bid by the council. Some local businesses are also making a financial contribution towards the cost of the scheme. When complete, the roundabout will improve road safety and help to unlock potential future employment development in the area.

The new roundabout will be open to traffic in June 2014.

Flemingate Development

The Flemingate development is a new £120 million mixed use development which will be constructed on the site of a former chemical works and the old Army Transport Museum between Flemingate, Chantry Lane and St. Nicholas Road in Beverley. The site has already been cleared in preparation for the redevelopment and new housing has already been constructed on part of the site.

The remaining part of the development will include new offices, shops, a cinema, restaurants and bars, and a new campus for East Riding College. This will provide jobs for local residents while extending the retail, leisure and educational facilities in the town. There are also plans for a new multi-storey car park.

The Flemingate development is due to be completed in October 2015. It is anticipated that East Riding College will relocate from their current site on Gallows Lane in time for the start of the new academic year in September 2015.

Further information

The development scheme is led by a local private development company and the council is not party to negotiations with potential occupiers of the units. For more details, please visit Wykeland's website:

A1079 Roundabout, Market Weighton

The council is building a new roundabout at the existing junction between the A1079 and Holme Road in Market Weighton. A plan of the new roundabout can be found below:

The roundabout is being paid for through the Department for Transport’s Local Pinch Point Fund with a contribution from local developers. Once complete the roundabout will improve road safety at the junction while opening up land for potential future development.

Work will start on site in autumn 2014, with the scheme due to be completed in spring 2015.

Bridlington Town Centre Scheme

The Bridlington Integrated Transport Plan (BITP) phase 2 is the collective name for a package of measures to improve the transport network in Bridlington. The BITP phase 2 aims to make it easier for drivers to travel around the town by straightening and widening some local roads and improving the current car parking arrangements. The scheme also includes a new railway station plaza and improved local footpaths and cycle links.

It is estimated that the BITP phase 2 scheme will cost around £7 million. The majority of the scheme will be paid for using Major Transport Scheme funding which is administered by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership. The council will also make a contribution.

A business case is currently being prepared for the scheme. It is anticipated that works will start on site in the 2015/16 financial year and will be finished in 2016/17.

Further information

The scheme will help to support the proposed Burlington Parade development as set out in the Bridlington Town Centre Area Action Plan.

 

Wolfreton School Consolidation

Wolfreton School is one of four East Riding secondary schools in the Government's Priority Schools Building Programme (PSBP). The PSBP involves the replacement or substantial refurbishment of 261 schools across the country considered to be in the worst condition with the highest need for urgent repairs.

The proposal for Wolfreton is to consolidate the whole school on to the Lower School site on Carr Lane. The new school will have capacity for 1,675 pupils. The design and layout of the new buildings and the access arrangements for the new site will be developed over the coming months. 

A contractor for the work at Wolfreton School will be appointed in summer 2014 and it is intended to start building work on site in February 2015. The project is scheduled to be completed by summer 2016 in time for the start of the academic year 2016/17.

All of the PSBP schemes are managed by the Education Funding Agency, and the governing body of Wolfreton School and the council are both supportive of the proposal. The other schools in the East Riding included in the PSBP are Withernsea High School, Hessle High School and Goole High School.

What is a major planning application?

Some of the schemes set out above required planning permission before construction could begin. In these cases, the developer or scheme promoter must submit a major planning application to the council. 

Major planning applications are those which could have a significant impact on the local area. A major application might include a proposal for a large new housing, retail, employment or leisure based development, or could be based on renewable energy schemes, new civil infrastructure such as flood defences, hazardous substance storage proposals or minerals and waste development.
