Housing and regeneration specialist Keepmoat has started work on the second phase of the £500M Hull City Wide Regeneration project.
The work will include the construction of 142 homes — including 93 homes for rent for Hull City Council and another 49 for housing association Home Group.
Hull City Council portfolio holder for housing and infrastructure John Black said: “It’s great to see the plans rise from the drawing boards across the area, from the Integrated Care Centre to new council housing, we are creating exciting new opportunities for jobs and living.
“We are one of a minority of councils who continue in this difficult climate to secure funding and develop successful partnerships in order to build new affordable homes for rent.”
The project forms part of Hull City Council’s 13-year wider regeneration programme, which will see the construction of 4,000 new homes. It will be carried out by a consortium of Keepmoat, Strata, Home Group and Priority Space.
