Brough Relief Road (BRR) is an essential piece of infrastructure that links the new Brough South Development with the western side of Brough while also providing a new access for the Humber Enterprise Park (HEP) Enterprise Zone site.


This is the last piece of the infrastructure jigsaw that will create 0.7 km of new public highway and unlock 85 ha of employment land (35 ha of which has EZ status), creating 800 new jobs and accelerating the delivery of 550 housing units, 17,243m² of commercial space (A & B class uses), 4,088m² of community space (D1 & D2 uses) and improved public realm. It will also reduce HGV and other traffic through Brough Town Centre.

‘Brough South’ led by the Horncastle Group and HEP led by Citivale are two employment related projects that have the potential to transform the growing town of Brough and make a significant contribution to the local and regional economy. To date the developments have been progressed in isolation but share a common infrastructure constraint which is access.
