Have your say on multi-million pound Whitefriargate regeneration

Proposals for the regeneration of Whitefriargate are to go on display to the public as part of a six-week consultation.

The new concept designs, providing visual guidance on how shop frontages could be transformed, were approved by the council’s planning committee last week.

Cabinet approved the six-week consultation this morning (Monday 27 January).

The concept designs are part of a supplementary planning guidance document to help drive the regeneration of the historic Hull thoroughfare.

Concept sketches have been commissioned to show how the restoration of frontages to properties on Whitefriargate could be delivered.

These images show how frontages in the historic street could be adapted as part of the regeneration.

They show ideas for how various existing shop units and frontages could be adapted to support the multi-million pound transformation of Whitefriargate.

It is hoped the regeneration of Whitefriargate will attract new businesses to the area as well as support existing organisations in and around the historic street.

Whitefriargate sits in the Old Town conservation area and is home to a high proportion of listed buildings. Whilst the character and appearance of upper floors remain largely unchanged, many ground floor shop fronts have been inconsistently or unsympathetically changed over the years.

The concept designs show how these ground floor units could be improved to make them consistent with the overall appearance of the street.
