Legal & General (L&G) insurance group has received planning consent to build Britain’s biggest housing projects – with homes built almost entirely in a factory.

The 154-home scheme in Selby, North Yorkshire, will be the first full modular housing development delivered by Legal & General, from buying the land through to design and construction.

Each unit’s walls, floors and ceilings are made using the factory’s four giant, computer-operated cutting and milling machines. Finished modules, wired, plumbed, decorated, carpeted and fitted out with kitchens and bathrooms, are loaded on to a lorry and delivered to sites. A home can be a single module or several joined together.

L&G is aiming to make 3,000 modular homes a year by 2024. Rosie Toogood, 52, head of the insurer’s modular homes business, said, “In a post COVID-19 crisis environment, the speed of delivery will be more important than ever before.”
