- seek funding to deliver housing-led neighbourhood regeneration
- acquire and demolish substandard housing
- build new council, housing association and private houses
- refurbish and improve housing
To help maximise the impact of funding we focus on these agreed priority areas
Area action plans developed in consultation with communities for each area set out which land is for house building, green space, schools, roads and industry.
Building Homes in Hull Event
Held on 27 November 2018 for small and medium businesses to network and seek subcontracting opportunities in the housing sector. Please see the following information from the event
Keepmoat, Strata, Homegroup, and Priority Space (KSHP) who are our city wide lead developer partners are developing a number of sites across the city for housing, including Wawne View off Wawne Road.
An outline planning application for 1600 new homes, school extension, a local retail park, public and private landscaping, and recreational facilities was approved in 2016. Following this a detailed planning application was approved for the first 750 homes on land to the East of Wawne Road and surrounding the primary school.
This retail park is now complete
A brand new primary school and a new private nursery are planned for the current Broadacre Primary School site.
Building on this first phase of 747 new homes started in September 2017 and show homes are now open. 66 affordable homes will be available for rent from HomeGroup and there are also some shared ownership options. 807 homes will follow in Phase 2
Kingfields Park - 285 new homes being built by Keepmoat including 42 which will be available for affordable rent from Home Group.
Attraction - 262 new homes being built by Strata including 12 which will be available for affordable rent from Home Group.
Meux Rise - 200 new homes being built by Home Group for Persona Homes including 12 which will be available for affordable rent from Home Group.
Soffam Farm Site
There is outline planning for 4 two bedroom bungalows
A builder is now developing the designs and we will arrange a resident drop in to view these. Building on the small sites programme is supported by funding from the Local Enterprise Partnership.
Gypsy and Traveller Sites
By 2021 we need to increase the number of permanent pitches in the city, as well as creating a temporary stopping place by 2022. Having reviewed various sites across the city we have identified land beside the river that will provide 8 new sites and a stopping site. More information can be found in the report to Cabinet setting out the options and agreed a way forward.
Consultation with the Gypsy and Traveller community on the Bedford and Wilmington sites took place in March and we are now consulting with the wider community of businesses and residents. Detailed plans taking into account the feedback will then be developed for the planning application.
Adding eight new pitches to the existing Wilmington Park site. This could be an extension to the existing site or creating a new distinct site with a separate entrance from Bedford Street. These will be for the Gypsy and Traveller community of the city as there is a waiting list for the Wilmington Park and Bedford Street sites. It maybe that existing residents move into these new pitches, but how they will be allocated has not yet been decided. The land is in a poor environmental condition and has a disused factory on it so the proposals will greatly improve the area.
Creating a new Temporary Stopping Place on land accessed from Mount Pleasant. This will help us to manage the situation when travellers pitch unexpectedly on Council land in the city. The proposed site will give us the option to move unauthorised encampments on to it, but they will only be able to stay there a short period of time. The proposed Temporary Stopping Place with a maximum of 23 pitches is next to the permanent sites but it will have a separate entrance from Mount Pleasant. The site would not be suitable for permanent residency and could only be used seasonally due flood risk. The site is currently vacant and suffers from fly tipping. The plans will improve the poor environmental condition of the site for the community.
Part of the proposals will look at improving the landscape and boundaries to the sites.
