Funding was committed for the regeneration of the Preston Road area over a five year period and much of this work is now completed with -
- 1000 new builds
- refurbishment of 366 Winget homes
- demolition of 514 Winget houses
Most of these properties were a non traditional property type referred to as a Winget. These homes were identified for demolition because their construction was classified as defective and extensive reinvestment was required to prolong their life.
Winget homes to the west of Holderness Drain and Marfleet Lane have been refurbished.
New homes at Exeter Grove, Ganstead Grove, Portobello Street, Maybury Road and Alexander Gardens (the former Greif site, off Southcoates Lane) have now been completed by our City Wide Lead Developer consortium which includes, Keepmoat Homes, Strata Homes and Homegroup. 6 new bungalows at Hopewell Road have also now been built as part of the Council’s Small Sites Housing Programme.
Preston Road (between Marfleet Lane & Holderness Drain)
Our lead developer partner has obtained planning permission to deliver the first phase of 242 homes on the site. There will be around 500 homes in total, built over the next five years, part funded by the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership. As part of the first phase, there will be 25 new Council homes for rent. The remaining houses on the site will be for sale and rent - 167 homes for sale by Strata Homes and 50 homes for private rent from Wise Living.
Building work has begun on this first phase.
In order to be considered for one of the new Preston Road Council homes, you must be registered on our housing list and bid for them when they are advertised. We usually allocate the homes some time before they are ready so it is important you register on our list and then check our adverts every week for new properties.
We have also agreed some local lettings policies for our new council houses, which gives priority to existing council tenants with good tenancy records, however other people can still apply.
