It is being funded by the Humber LEP, East Riding of Yorkshire Council and the Brough South Consortium and work is being carried out by a contractor appointed by [...]

Latest fly-past shows how the Brough South development is taking shape
Forty water voles – one of the UK’s rarest mammals – have been released into a specially created habitat at Brough South. The release, which was watched by pupils from Hunsley Primary – a brand new school on Brough South – follows the removal of around 20 water voles in 2017 from the development site, to make way for groundworks. The animals were cared for by the Derek Gow consultancy, a specialist water vole ecology business in Devon, until the site was ready to receive them back. They also bred in captivity, meaning twice [...]
The Brough South Consortium would like to thank dog walkers and other recreational users of the former BAE airfield for observing new signs asking people not to disturb the surrounding land.

Recently, at the request of Natural England and East Riding of Yorkshire Council, we erected fences across the airfield to clearly identify the public right of way. We have also [...]
