Six-week consultation underway for proposed East Carr housing development

A six-week consultation process is underway regarding plans for a housing development in East Carr, Hull.

The site is located to the east of Howdale Road and Dunvegan Road. 

This site was allocated for housing in the Hull Local Plan following a number of rounds of consultation and, alongside the other policies and proposals in the plan, was examined and adopted following a formal examination process.

The purpose of the current consultation is to share the council’s views on how to ensure that any new housing on this site is well designed, that open space is well laid out, drainage and flooding issues are addressed and that access within and beyond the site is carefully considered. 

Alex Codd, the council’s assistant director for economic development and regeneration, said: “This is an important opportunity for local people to express their views about the nature of development proposed for this area. 

“The council welcomes such feedback with the intention of ensuring a well-planned housing development that not only meets identified housing needs but is sensitive to the needs of existing residents.”

A copy of the plan can be viewed on the Hull City Council website.

A six-week consultation has commenced and will run until Monday 21 September.  Comments can be made by:

  • responding via Hull City Council’s website
  • emailing [email protected]
  • writing to City Planning, Hull City Council, Guildhall, Alfred Gelder Street, Hull, HU1 2AA

The local authority is also arranging drop-in sessions at The Saltshouse Tavern between 11am and 7pm on Wednesday 26 August and Wednesday 9 September.

To comply with Covid-19 health and safety requirements, appointments for these sessions must be arranged by emailing [email protected]
