226 new homes 'will cause horrendous traffic problems' in Anlaby

By Hull Daily Mail | Posted: 10 Jan 2018

Major housing plans for the edge of Anlaby have sparked concerns about traffic and pressure on school places.

Bellway Homes Ltd and Anlaby Estates Ltd are applying for planning permission for 226 homes on land west of Beverley Road.

They have told East Riding Council 25 per cent of the properties, totalling some 56 homes, will be affordable housing.

Overall, a range of one to five-bed properties, compromising a mix of apartments, terraced, semi-detached and detached homes, is proposed.

The site is earmarked for development in the council’s Local Plan.

East Riding ward Councillor Mary-Rose Hardy says new homes are needed in the area but she believes there will be concerns about the impact on traffic and schools.

She says: “I understand this site was formerly a Second World War camp for people who were bombed out of their homes in Hull.

“It’s a lovely area of Anlaby. I don’t like losing green land but the East Riding does need new housing for people to move into.

"There will be major concerns about traffic. The traffic will be horrendous.

“All these properties are likely to have two-car families adding to the Beverley Road traffic.

“Schools are at bursting point so that will also have to be a consideration, with new families moving into the area.

"I think there will have to be mitigating conditions that will minimise those concerns."
