The development of 48 affordable houses, off Pinfold Lane, has cost around £5.5million and the properties are a mixture of two and three-bedroom properties.

While workmen are not quite working eight days a week to get the buildings finished, they have been working round the clock to make sure everything will come together on time, as the developers are due to hand over the keys to the council’s housing department next week.

Work by contractors Hobson and Porter Ltd began just over a year ago, after the houses were designed by East Riding of Yorkshire Council architects.

Dave Waudby, the council’s head of infrastructure and facilities, said: “The need for affordable housing remains high throughout our area, and I’m delighted this project will result in 48 brand new, excellent quality homes for our council tenants.

“Since 2010, this council has build well over 350 new homes for our residents in a wide range of developments across the East Riding.”

The building materials, including triple glazing and extensive insulation, have been chosen to make sure the houses are all energy efficient.

Compost bins and water butts have also been provided to help encourage residents to live environmentally friendly lifestyles.

And there will be no need to follow a long and winding road to get into the estate, as access will be from Nostell Way.
