Hull City Council approves construction of 109 new homes

Hull City Council has confirmed it has approved plans to build more than 100 new homes, as part of a £17 million scheme to regenerate the region’s Fruit Market area.

The houses are due to be completed by the end of 2019, with development starting early next year.

It is hoped the construction, due to be undertaken by Beal Homes, will help transform the Fruit Market into a vibrant and sustainable area.

Under the scheme, 109 houses will be built, most of which are expected to be one, two and three bedroom townhouses to form part of a ‘newly-created urban village’.

Garry Taylor, from Hull City Council, said he believed the scheme would put the area on the map ‘as one of Hull's unique cultural gems’, adding the homes will ‘prove incredibly popular’.
