Modular homes company ilke Homes has moved a step closer to building properties in its North Yorkshire factory for a site in Harrow Lane, Hastings


How the Harrow Lane, Hastings, development will look

Modular homes company Ilke Homes has been granted reserved matters approval to build 140 homes in Hastings. 

The properties will be built in Ilke Homes’ factory in, Knaresborough, North Yorkshire before being delivered to the Harrow Lane site in Hastings.

In October last year, Hastings council chose Ilke Homes to develop the site following a tendering process. The local authority has given reserved matters approval following outline planning permission.

The homes on the 12.4-acre site will include a mix of flats and houses, ranging in size from one to four bedrooms family homes.

Ilke said it is on course to deliver 1,200 homes in the South East region across six sites.

Patrick Bergin, chief financial officer, told Housing Today in January that Ilke would be doubling production capacity at its factory in Knaresborough to 2,000 homes a year.

Matt Suggit, development director at Ilke Homes, said: “Ilke Homes are increasingly becoming a partner of choice for local authorities looking to scale up the delivery of energy-efficient, affordable housing, and this planning permission is testament to that.”

Andy Batsford, lead councillor for housing and homelessness at Hastings council, said: “We are pleased that this application has been granted, we look forward to seeing these new homes being built and lived in by some of the many people we have in this town who need an affordable roof over their heads.”
