This new development is part of the Middle Deepdale Masterplan which, in turn, is part of the wider Eastfield Regeneration Investment Plan.
This Masterplan was developed by Scarborough Council in partnership with Kebbell Developments and supported by North Yorkshire County Council and Homes England.
Paula Broadbent, managing director of Lovell Later Living, said; “We are thrilled to have secured this site to develop our exceptional lifelong homes for people in later life. Along with our Lovell colleagues in the North East, we are looking forward to being an active partner in the Middle Deepdale Masterplan, supporting the regeneration of this area of Scarborough. This acquisition marks a landmark for Lovell Later Living as it facilitates the inaugural development in our very ambitious 5 year plan. We will offer a fresh approach to both the design and the purchasing of new build homes for people in later life, this first development situated right in the heart of a newly reinvigorated community which sits ‘just a stone’s throw’ from the historic North Yorkshire seaside town of Scarborough.
“The Later Living by Lovell Sandcastles development will combine the carefully crafted, adaptive and innovative designs from Lovell Later Living with the tried and trusted 5-star housebuilder methods of construction by Lovell, offering high quality lifelong homes. This land acquisition will allow us to create the right environment for people to live well and age well, building on creating place and developing communities within the community to provide appropriate and aspirational homes for older people in Middle Deepdale, Scarborough.”
The regeneration completed to date within Middle Deepdale has already led to a substantial transformation of the area, building a new community and new school, providing a wealth of new jobs including apprenticeships and work placement opportunities.
David Ward, managing director for Lovell in the North, said: “This development is a fantastic opportunity for us to bring our combined skills across the Lovell portfolio of businesses, not only in terms of our skills as gold standard housebuilder, but in terms of our wider contribution to the community. We’re really excited to see Sandcastles get underway, but equally, our contribution to the local community goes much further by creating employment and training opportunities for local people.”
Subject to planning consent, the Later Living by Lovell Sandcastles development is expected to begin construction early summer in partnership with Lovell operating as the principal contractor, with the sales village and show homes anticipated to open in late summer 2022.
