£1 million affordable housing project in Bridlington completed

East Riding of Yorkshire Council, in partnership with its contractor Geo. Houlton & Sons, has completed a development of new affordable housing in Bridlington.

The £1 million project involved constructing a two-storey building, called ‘Milne House’, containing six one-bedroom flats, three on each floor, on an area of land in Thornton Road, off Bessingby Gate.

The flats, which will all be allocated by the council to households on the housing register, also benefit from new off-street parking and cycle storage with pedestrian access off Thornton Road.

The council’s Asset Strategy department identified the land as a development opportunity as it contained redundant stores and a concrete hardstanding which were formerly associated with the existing East Riding of Yorkshire Council-owned flats along Thornton Road.

Enabling works began in July 2020 with main construction works starting in August 2020. Works were completed and the keys handed over to the housing department last month. Tenants will benefit from affordable rents and will move in over the coming weeks.

Andrew Hazell, building design manager at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We’re delighted to have designed and managed the construction of this new development alongside Geo. Houlton & Sons. The flats have been designed to be flexible to adapt to people’s needs as they change and offer generously proportioned accommodation.”

Councillor Gary McMaster, portfolio holder for planning, infrastructure and housing at the council, added: “It is great to see that construction has been completed on this project, which has delivered high-quality housing in a popular location. The reuse of brownfield land has helped to ensure that the council is managing its assets in the most cost effective and sustainable way.”

James Jennison, construction contracts manager at Geo. Houlton & Sons, commented: “It was a great opportunity for Houltons to be involved with this project, working alongside East Riding of Yorkshire Council to deliver the scheme. It was challenging at times with the project being built to a high specification. Now seeing the end product it was a pleasure to be involved.”

The development was part funded by a £234,000 grant from Homes England, the Government’s housing accelerator.
