ilke Homes has craned into place the first factory-built home on the Beeston modular housing scheme, a site which was formerly owned by Network Rail

In just 20 months, ilke Homes secured the site and achieved full planning permission. All homes on the Beeston modular housing scheme have been delivered to the site within the first six months of starting, showcasing the ability to deliver groundworks and modular delivery in parallel.

In partnership with housing association emh group, ilke Homes is delivering 42 affordable homes on the vacant brownfield site next to Beeston station.

All of the homes are being precision-engineered along production lines at ilke Homes’ factory in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.

‘Bringing forward a parcel of brownfield land for the development of much-needed housing’

Tom Heathcote, executive director of development at ilke Homes, commented: “It’s great to reach yet another milestone at the site in Beeston, where we have worked closely with Network Rail and emh group to bring forward a parcel of brownfield land for the development of much-needed housing.


“This development, once complete, will prove to be an exemplary case study of how offsite manufacturing can breathe new life into public land via the delivery of well-designed communities that are connected to transport hubs.”

‘Providing long-lasting benefits for the local community and the region’

Robin Dobson, group property director at Network Rail, added: “As one of the most strategically important sites in the UK, we are proud to have created a partnership with ilke Homes on the redevelopment of this brownfield site, to enable the delivery of affordable-led modular sustainable housing in this growing region, putting transport infrastructure at the very heart of the development.

“This is a partnership that focuses on the Government’s strategy to accelerate the rollout of modular sustainable housing to drive local economic growth.

“It’s a project that demonstrates the pivotal role our railway can play in unlocking sites which deliver growth. We’re delivering it through a public and private partnership, an approach we’ll be looking to replicate in other towns and cities across the country.  It will provide long-lasting benefits for the local community and the region.”
