A 114-home development near Hull Kingston Rovers stadium has been granted planning permission, the Hull Daily Mail reports. The site is off Preston Road, not far from Sewell Group Craven Park, which is home to the rugby league club, and also hosts other large-scale events.
Developers Gleeson will build a mixture of detached and semi-detached family homes, with a choice of two, three, and four bedrooms. Construction is expected to commence in September, with the first homes ready to move into by Autumn next year. Show homes will be available for viewing in September 2023.
The homes are going to be reasonably priced to attract first time buyers and local families on low or average incomes, according to the developer.
Wayne Sutton, Gleeson’s regional managing director for Yorkshire East, said: “We are delighted to be bringing more affordable, quality homes to Hull. We are dedicated to ensuring that the housing market better serves young and first-time buyers, as well as families on low to average incomes, making homeownership a reality.
He added: “We believe this development will further enhance our presence within the community and demonstrate our commitment to Hull, complementing our existing development at Dane Park.”
“We are looking forward to working with the local community and we will be employing a workforce that comprises of local labour, including apprentices and contractors.”
Gleeson will also invest in conserving the biodiversity of the local environment, through a tree planting scheme, and the protection of existing vegetation and wildlife near to the 10-acre site. To mitigate the threat to endangered species, a newt breeding pond will be built in local woodland, and bat and bird roosting facilities will be installed.
