Good news, the brand new Hull City Council , Love Your Street project is soon going to be up and running, we hope to launch late September and we would love you to be involved!
We have been awarded £400,000, to undertake an environmental and housing standards improvement project in the Newington and Gipsyville, St. Andrews and Docklands, University, Avenue, Beverley and Newland, and Central wards up until August 2020.
This exciting project will involve residents and stakeholders working together to make a visible difference to their communities.
The Team and Vision
There is a new team in place to support this project including 4 Environmental Improvement Officers, who are based within the Council’s Streetscene team at Staveley House, Stockholm Road.
They will be working hard to improve environmental and housing standards and encourage positive behavioural change. We want to put pride back in to communities, which is likely to have an impact on current issues blighting neighbourhoods, and our focus is on reducing the amount of waste in the wrong place such as fly-tipping and improving housing standards which link to wider issues of crime and other anti-social behaviour.

There are also 2 Housing Enforcement Officers who are working with us, ensuring residents feel safe and secure in their homes, which contribute to this project by increasing resident confidence in both their home and the community. They are based within the Private Housing Team.
The plan is to establish resident perceptions of their neighbourhood through a survey where the public nominates their priorities for their area, and the issues are then targeted for action by the relevant agencies working together.
Can you help? We really hope you can!
As part of the impact summary for this project, it would be great to have a short quote from yourself describing what impact the demographic change has had on the local community. This will be used, along with other data, to assess the impact at the end of the project.
In order for this project to achieve its outcomes it is vital that we build upon existing partnerships and create new ones to empower residents so that our priority neighbourhoods can see considerable sustained improvement well into the future, which will benefit everyone living, working, and visiting areas in years to come.
