New house building and regeneration

As a strategic housing authority, we seek to understand and respond to housing needs. We do this by making the best use of the housing stock and planning and facilitating new housing.

To help do this we -

  • seek funding to refurbish and improve housing
  • deliver housing lead neighbourhood regeneration
  • acquire and demolish substandard housing

Part of delivering our housing growth plan includes building new council houses. We are working with partners to build modern new houses for sale or for rent from housing associations or for shared ownership and private rent. This is all done within the framework of the Hull Local Plan.

We have a programme to build modern, high quality council homes for rent across the city.

The major sites where building is still taking place are -

  • Hawthorn Avenue
  • Ings
  • Orchard Park
  • Preston Road
  • Kingswood
