Regeneration of Orchard Park
Orchard Park has been a key focus area for housing regeneration and is identified in Hull’s Local Plan as a priority area.
To date, seven blocks of Council high-rise flats have been demolished, a programme of external solid wall insulation to up to 1,200 homes is nearing completion and nearly 300 new homes have been built.
Bainton Grove site off Endike Lane - We have applied for outline planning for five, two bedroom bungalows. Once these are approved we will appoint a builder to develop the designs and arrange a resident drop in consultation. These homes will be part funded by The Humber Local Enterprise Partnership.
The energy efficiency improvements programme for our homes (all 'wimpey no-fines' construction houses) in the Thorpes, Danes and Courts is complete. The improvements are providing thermal insulation render in order to reduce energy usage.
The Axdane houses are of a different construction (called 5Ms) to the other homes and a solution to provide External Solid Wall Insulation / Cladding for them is being tested at two adjoining properties.
The Shaws are traditional brick built homes and are therefore more suitable to cavity wall insulation rather then cladding.
