Planning, building control and archaeology

Planning provides advice on the following - 

  • planning
  • building control
  • archaeology
  • urban design
  • conservation
  • flood management
  • enforcement advice and makes decisions in a timely and informed manner.

We adopted a local plan in November 2017 which sets out a clear vision for the city.

By 2032 a further 10,000 homes will have been built, 10,000 jobs created, and leisure facilities enhanced.

2017 - 2018 witnessed a number of key City Centre projects completed - 

  • Hilton Hotel
  • New Theatre Extension
  • Ferens Art Gallery refurbishment
  • opening of the Hull University Technical College
  • The Bonus Arena 

Planning plays a vital role in delivering high quality development across the city. A key component of this is the new local plan which will influence public and private sector investment and development proposals over the next 15 years. This plan aims to steer developers to the most sustainable locations. Planning is critical in shaping the built and natural environment and guiding investment decisions. 

A guide has been produced which draws together all the key components of the planning department in Hull and should prove a crucial tool to the community in enhancing their understanding of the planning process.
