Second phase of Grimsby housing development announced as project hits milestone

The developer behind a new £45m residential development in North East Lincolnshire has announced the start date for the second phase of the scheme as the first families take up residence.

King’s Park in Scartho, Grimsby, which is being delivered by E5 Living UK, saw its first buyers move in at the beginning of June. Phase one includes a mix of 78 two and three bedroom detached and semi detached bungalows, with and without garages, and three-bed semi-detached homes and will be completed by Autumn next year.

Phase two is scheduled to begin in August, running alongside phase one, and will involve the construction of an additional 16 bungalows and retail units to serve the new village-style community. Further phases will include housing for over-55s and there are plans for assisted living accommodation.

E5 Living UK Director Kevin Stevens said: “This is a very exciting time as our vision for King’s Park has become a reality with the first residents moving in.

“The next phase is key in creating the community with retail facilities within walking distance of their homes and the development of shared amenity spaces. The buoyant housing market has undoubtedly helped with interest in King’s Park but it’s been the design and quality and the large number of single storey homes that have helped us secure sales.”

King’s Park benefits from a prized location in Scartho next to the Diana, Princess of Wales Memorial Hospital in Grimsby, but is close to the amenities of Grimsby, the coast and the Lincolnshire Wolds. It was designed by Cleethorpes architects Hodsons and is being built by Humberston based JemBuild and marketed by local agents Crofts.

Director Gary Croft said: “There has been a really positive response to this development which is delivering a very high quality for new build homes in larger residential schemes.

“The standard of the specification has amazed buyers and led to a healthy number of reservations. The first residents are happily in their new homes and we look forward to welcoming many more in the coming months.”

Properties at King’s Park start from £189,950. Showhomes are open from 10am to 4pm for covid safe appointments through Crofts Estate Agents.
